Starting with the warm, inviting greeting when we walked in the door (sweaty from a bike ride around the island!) to the hand drawn map and personal escort along the right direction, with the great food recommendations in between, this place was great. The old, elegant mansion has been lovingly restored with comfortable beds, nice linens, wi-fi - all the modern comforts, while maintaining the quirky historic charm of the town. The decor was fun and playful, with clever re-use of old fixtures and furnishings. And the location is great - right off the main square without being right in the middle of the action. We went to be relatively early, and did not notice any of the loud partying that others have mentioned. We did not have a street-side room, so maybe that helped. But I always travel with earplugs anyway, and would rather have the delightful experience of a place like this than the HoJo down the road! Felt very authentic, genuine and a nice hint of what Ponce's 'glory days' might have been like. Simply delightful.
