Fodor's Review

The south coast's biggest resort sits on a black-sand beach about 4 miles (6 km) south of downtown Ponce. Everything on this 80-acre property is massive, beginning with the open-air lobby. Constructed of reinforced concrete, like the rest of the hotel, it requires huge signs to point you in the right direction. All its bright, spacious rooms are decorated in a lush, tropical motif, and most have balconies overlooking the sea. A large pool is surrounded by palm trees and

has a spectacular view of the Caribbean. Golf lovers will appreciate the 27-hole course at the adjacent Costa Caribe Golf and Country Club, which has a clubhouse with its own restaurant and lounge.

A little paradise for our second honeymoon

My husband and I decided to stay at Hilton Ponce for our second honeymoon without any expectations. The first room that we got smelled like clorox, so we immediately asked to be transfered. But what a surprised when they transfered us to a the lagoon honeymoon suite for the price of a standard room. We had a great time. The only thng we didn't like is the service in the rental cars by the lobby because everytime we go there, they would keep on

taking phone calls. Other than that, everything went well.

Had the misfortune of staying at the Ponce Hilton recently. I would never have picked this hotel, but it was a company event. Brought the family and stayed an extra night. What a mistake. The place is dirty and ill kept. My wife ordered room service one night while I was at a company event. When I came back at 10pm, her room service tray was still on the floor in the hall. Still there at 7am next morning too! Same was true of a broken plate and glass

and assorted food which spent the night on the stairway. Do they not have someone walking the grounds checking on this kind of thing? The toilet did not work properly in 3 nights. The pool is tiny for a hotel this size - and was absolutly packed on Saturday according to my wife. Seems they sell club memberships to locals who fill the place on weekends. Having to pay extra for parking in a place like this with plenty of space is a rip-off. There is no beach at all to speak of. To its credit, the food is respectable. We live in San Juan (moved here a year ago) and will never return to this hotel. If you are coming from off-island, you are much better off heading to Dorado, Isla Verde, Condado, Old SJ, Rio Grande or Fajardo or just about anywhere - all have good beaches - and avoiding this dump.

Surpassed our Expectations

Beautiful Grounds. Spacious Rooms with views. 5 nights over Christmas with 2 teens(16 &19). Two rooms at $165 each on VISA special including breakfast(great deal). Great Breakfast. Beautiful Pool. Beach is lovely. Not expansive like Isle Verde but much less crowded and peaceful. Just what our family was looking for. Also enjoyed pool bar lunches. Drove about 45 minutes for a day trip to Lajas to snorkel and swim in the biolumiscent bay
