This is a very good hotel. The room was clean, quiet, and comfortable. The breakfast was good. The staff was friendly. We enjoyed sitting out by the pool. They even have their own exit off the interstate!

This was a celebration reservation on my points for my friend. I made the reservation the same day and called the hotel. I got the lovely pleasure of talking to JIMMY TORRES. I explained to him that this is for my friend and she has her birthday in few weeks. And I understand this is last minute but if anything surprise could be planned, I absolutely do not mind paying for the amenity. Mr. Jimmy, thanked me for being a Platinum Elite member, confirmed the room type and reservation details, added my friends name and told me that he would happily arrange for some surprise for her. On top of that he assured that it would be complimentary. I was so touched. Ms. JENERY, the restaurant host, called my friend and wished her Happy Birthday after she checked in. They invited her for a special Birthday Breakfast. Sadly, she had other plans (She had no idea I was trying to arrange this surprise) Any other hotel would have said, (“Oh well! We tried…) But not this hotel. ALERIX, from front desk, personally went to the room and delivered a lovely amenity bag with snacks and water. I was so touched that they went out of their way to make sure my friend felt special. I thank everyone on this location for the lovely hospitality. From Jimmy to Alerix. Thank you very much

We are an IHG member and always try to stay at their property and was happy that there was a Holiday Inn in Ponce. The whole experience was only OK. Front desk: upon check in, the front desk agent was chatting with another staff member and made us stand and wait for her to finish which I found very unprofessional. She checked us in to a room which was occupied when we came to the room and had to waited for someone to come to change to the correct room. It was a long day traveling with baby so this was not fun. We finally got to the correct room and checked out the next day. We found a $4xx,xx change on my credit card, called the hotel, got transferred around for 4 times, finally spoke to a gentlemen in the billing department. He couldn't find the transaction and said to call me back in the same day. A week passed by, no words from the guy ( as I wanted to give them more time to look into this) but no calls. So I called back, no one knew what was going on. Then I remembered about wrong room at check in, they didn't move my CC when they moved us to the new room that's why the charge was for the other room, which ended up on my CC. Spoke to Anna in billing department and she sorted this out. In the middle of that waiting week, the guest service manger, Yasmin Negron, reached out regarding the experience. I told her about what was going on and if she could help to look into the billing because I couldn't get any response from the hotel but no, no response from her. This is really really sad because if you reach out to a guest for a follow up, make sure that you will recover until the end, do not send out a hollow apology with hollow words. This shows that the lack of training for staff from top to bottom of this hotel.

I stayed with family, my sister, and everything was in order, and everyone was so attentive. I did not used the pool, but my family did. It was very nice. The view to the Caribbean Sea, is so beautiful!
