More than I expected!!

A very very very nice hotel with great staff. Very clean hotel and room. The room is large. The pool is gorgeous, the Bar atmosphere very nice with live music. The Mojito"s are great as well as the Long Island Ice Tea. The casino was alright but then again I am spoiled from too many Vegas vacations and use to playing slot machines that that require thinking like Black Jack or Poker...there are none like that here. Overall I definitely recommend this hotel and would definitely come back again!!!!!

Money-saving tip: Short drive from hotel

I got a case of water and snacks at the Walgreen's to keep my spending low at the hotel. The restaurant prices are a bit high. I ate at a sandwich shop called El Meson...had the "Cubano"...it was delicious and under $6!

Very relaxing weekend

This is the first time we stay in Ponce but we had been in Mayaguez and in St. Thomas V.I. We liked the rooms,the beds are comfortables, the views were very relaxing. The rooms have coffee maker, hair blower, irons,iron board,T.V. with cable, faciliies to get ice and a midnight snack. The hotels have a great location with lots of good restaurants with different ranges of prices.

Oasis

This is a wonderful retreat hotel. Although it is a little distance from Ponce, the facility itself is excellent. Large comfortable rooms, a great pool, stylish casino,bar, and restaurant.. An oasis after a road trip.

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.
