Not bad for the price.

It was cheap, and clean. We had to keep food and drinks cleaned up to aviod ants, but it wasn't that big of a deal at all. The staff was very friendly and helpful with directions.

Newly Engaged in Puerto Rico

Although the hotel was accomodating enough to allow us to check-in early, the room we were given had a moldy mildewy smell. We called to ask for another room and it took them to long to come that we ended up having lunch at the hotel restaurant. The restaurant had flies flying, which was very annoying. By the time we checked again all they had done to the room was sprayed air fresher. We finally got a better room, but that put us back on our sightseeing plans. Not a great first impression.

Time-saving tip: Short drive from hotel

At the center of Ponce at Plaza de las Delicias they offer a trolley tour for $2 a person at the Parque de Bombas. It takes you all around the center and gives you great insight on the history of Ponce. The best part is that the trolley is air-conditioned.

GOOD PLACE TO STAY

The hotel was good, clean, friendly staff. My only problem was that I was charge twice for my room, once by Cheap Tickets, and once by the hotel. But I don't think it was the hotel fault, it was Cheap Tickets fault.

Good price, Good value

We stayed for 7 days and the hotel was very quiet during that time. The best rooms are definately on the 1st floor by the pool. It is clean and conveniently located to many attractions, stores and a beautiful beach, Santa Playa (Hwy 52 to route 116). It is really, really easy to drive in the Ponce area to get to different places. Ask the front desk staff for directions, they will give you a very detailed map, but just be prepared to stop at a gas station closer to your destination to make sure you do not need to make an additional turn somewhere. Twice we were given directions and either a right turn or a left turn at a traffic light was left out of the instructions. My only suggestion is that they update the gym equipment.
