I checked in at 2am but that did not stop the night clerk of doing and amazing job. Very happy and jolly (older gentleman). The room I was given could not be better (room 416) it had an amazing view. The bed, the bathroom, the maid service, the breakfast in the restaurant... pretty much my whole stay was incredible. I... More

We stayed here 3 nights on a family vacation, much nicer than Mayaguez. The room was nice fair in size view of the pool and ocean. They have a casino but never went and it did not seem to that busy but we were not there on the weekend and in bed by 10. Nice restaurants across the highway that... More

When I travel to new places I try to stay in 'non-traditional' hotels whenever possible. Still sometimes it is just convenient to pick a recognizable hotel and stay there, especially if it's for a short stay. We recently did just that...spent two nights at this Holiday Inn. It has a nice pool...a deep end for diving (no board) and a... More

We rolled in in late afternoon wondering about this place (not having previous info). It was a Holiday Inn, to be sure. But the dinner we had was exceptional. The pool, with the view of the Caribbean is large and deep. We had the normal buffet breakfast which was not included but not expensive. The casino seemed to be hoping,... More

I'm sad to write this review, as a local puertorican customer. I choose this hotel based on good experiences I had staying in IHG hotels in mainland USA. I wish I can rate this experience better but the room I was given should be placed in the "Out-of-Service" list. The double beds are so small not even 2 kids can... More

Couldn't find a hotel on the south side of the island until this one, picture shows that it was close to the ocean it really is up on the hill over top of the freeway, you can see the ocean that you're not close to it. but it was a place to sleep, clean, and reasonable prices,

Greeted by a friendly clerk who assigned us a room with balcony on the fifth floor overlooking the Caribbean Sea and Port of Ponce off in the distance. Room was well-appointed and clean and extremely quiet -- certainly enjoyed our stay and would stay again at this hotel.

We stayed here one night as we made our way around the island. There didn't seem to be many quests staying at the hotel when we were there which I think was more to do with when we visited. The hotel is in good shape. The rooms were clean and looked to have been renovated fairly recently. The pool is... More
