I stayed here for two nights with an old college friend, who lives in Puerto Rico. She had recommended this hotel in Ponce for its quiet location and fabulous breakfasts. Our room in the Executive Tower had a sea view and a balcony. The beds were blissfully comfortable with good linens and down duvets. The bathroom had a great shower and good toiletries, as well as the usual amenities.
The Hilton Resort has open-style, modern architecture and spectacular gardens lush with tropical vegetation. The poolside scene was particularly attractive and landscaped with comfortable loungers and double beds for sunbathing. The beach just beyond the pool area was long and narrow. Unfortunately, swimming in the ocean was not possible because of dangerous rip-tides.
Breakfasts were included in our special hotel rate for an additional $10.00 per day for the two of us. I heartily recommend finding a rate where breakfast is inclusive, as they include eggs and waffles cooked to order, fresh fruit and juices, cheese, sausages, bacon, good breads, bagels, and Danish pastries. We ate in the outside restaurant for one of our lunches, but watch out for the birds. They are likely to swoop down and steal something from your plate! I also had an excellent venison dinner at La Cava on my last night here.
All in all, a wonderful, relaxing stay at the Hilton Resort!
