We chose this hotel because we were visiting friends in Ponce and it was located 5 mins away from their house. We left every morning at 9am and didn't come back until midnight. Never used any of the facilities, however, the business center allowed us to do an online check-in and printed our boarding passes. On the first day we learned that bkfst, even though complimentary, was not included at the time of our booking - we did it through Expedia. The price of the restaurant was a little expensive for a family of 4, so we ended up driving to the bakery - 5 mins away - and Burger King for bkfst.
THE ROOM: The beds were full size instead of queen as advertised. We are a family of 4 and asked for a rollaway bed after looking at the tiny beds. They did not have any available. Our room looked big and spacious online, but it was tiny. The hot water was poor. After 2 showers the hot water was gone ... we were told to wait another 15 mins. But at midnight, you really didn't want to wait. There were spider webs on the corner of our room, that we chose to ignore. The beds after all were comfortable even though they were tiny. Ponce sunrise was earlier than Florida, and by 6AM the light was inside our room – please make sure you close the drapes properly or you’ll be awake earlier than expected.
SERVICE: We had good service and they were pleasant at anytime. However, it did not compensate for the flaws.
If you need to stay in the hotel and use facilities as a resort or vacation, I would not suggest to stay here. It is a clean place to stay for the night and for under $80. It is only 5 mins from the airport and is perfect if you are away all day long.
