upon arrival the staff was very helpful and friendly, check in was smooth. We had heard to request ahead a higher foor with an ocean view, that is exactly what we got, they were very accomodating. The balcony on the 8th floor faced east and we could see san juan and el yunque rain forrest in the distance. we watched the sunrise every morning. Don't forget, you are on an island, so the building was older, the jack in the wall of our phone did not work, they came immediatly to look at it, but were unable to fix it, so, we had no phone....we were there for a holiday weekend and ran short on clean towels...I walked down to the desk to request some towels and a maintainance person brought one up within 5 minutes.. the beach was beautiful and was enclosed by breaker rocks, the pools were tiered and one ran down into the other... public beach was about 5 miles east if you want to check out local flavor....many food/drink places "huts" along the road where you park. There is a casino on site and a golf course. It is still united states, so, cvs and walgreens baskinrobbins right up the road. Downtown (about a 2 mile walk) had a town square with a statue of an Indian, spaniard and african....serveral other statues placed around the town, talked with the locals, gave us history of Dorado (gold)...location was nice...not very touristy, but close enough to the attractions...about 30 minutes to san juan (provided traffic was moving) and about 1 hour to arecibo where the big dish and sunken caves are....It took us about 2 hours to ponce via rt 10......get the speed pass...it is well worth it, oh and, stay within the speed limit......
