The king rooms on the second floor of the original structure are very interesting, as well as comfortable. Well appointed room: good bed, plenty of pillows, very clean and well maintained. Huge bathroom,... More

Panorama is a nice lounge at the top floor and we were fortunate to have nice... More

Nice people and accomodations! Easy access to restaurants, coffee places, etc. The roof area is amazing, nice view and good food too. Unique experience in Ponce, no other place like this in Puerto Rico or the Caribbean.

After explaining the situation and that I had a coupon I... More

Stayed for one night after a day trip to Caja de Muerto. I requested a room in front to the Plaza to enjoy the view. A HUGE MISTAKE!!....Loud music from the cars do not allowed me to sleep until 3:30 am. Curtains were dirty needed to be replaced. AC was not working properly, it was kind of hot, no matter... More
