Great for families with children

I stayed here with my children ages 5 and 11. The pool was great. The kids loved the game room. Staff was great and friendly. I would stay here again.

Great Stay

I used to stay at the Hilton- But you can't compare what you get for the price at the Holiday Inn. Also I prefer the cozy and informal setting. I feel at home. I will stay at the Ponce Holiday Inn when in the area.

Great Casino!

The Holiday Inn in Ponce is a better than average hotel. It has a great casino, a big pool with a beautiful view to the Caribbean Sea, and a nice restaurant. On the down side the hotel stand by itself on a mountain top making a rental car a must to move around town.

Wish for price reduction

It was good but I would have liked a better price, I am a teacher and I got there at 9:00 p.m and left at 7:30 because I was going to a competition. They did not make a good price offer. I stayed because i did not want to drive at 4:00 in the morning, But the hotel was very beautiful.
