The Ponce Resort is on the ocean away from the Town of Ponce. The golf course resort is attached to the main resort over a bridge which the hotel itself provides a complimentary shuttle. It has two pools, one in the main building, the other at the golf resort.
I was a guest at this hotel one year ago and booked into the Executive Tower which is the furthest away from the main resort. Last year the Exectuve Lounge which is situated on the ground floor was open on the weekend as we had gone from a Friday to Saturday.This year however we were upgraded to the Executive Tower and the lounge was closed, only open now from Monday to Friday. The pool in the main resort building was closed for maintenance or whatever. I don't understand that as the tourist season is heavy in this time period and they have shut down one of the biggest attractions at this resort. They did apologize however and did give an alternative, which was to be shuttled to the golf course resort and use the pool facility there. What an inconvenice for the guests, especially with children.
I was happy I bought a Bed and Breakfast Package which they offered. This staff at the breakfast area were unremarkable and very friendly and helpful. The breakfast buffet was more then adequate for any guests. Clean, and an array of selections for breakfast, including cold and hot buffet and an omelette station as well.
The rooms themselves are okay. Nothing spectacular. No special amenities, and no bathtubs whatsoever. The rooms only provide this massive shower. You can tell times are tough as even the grounds are not maintained as should be.
TIP: If you aren't a golfer, don't go. The beach is nothing to speak of and the facility itself is the only one of it's type around there. It is 'JUST OKAY". Skip Ponce and just do a day trip.
