PHL is a charming family-run enterprise conveniently located close enough to everything the average guest would like to see. The staff was genuinely friendly and accommodating. We had a very nice room that was actually two rooms with twin beds in the second room which makes it very convenient for families. We had a very large terrace with chaises and a hammock essentially to ourselves. The price was competitive and a good value, especially considering the full breakfast offered daily on a beautiful shaded terrace. Ponza is a rather laid-back community, but we were quite happy just hitting the beach and walking the main town. There is a local bus that gives you a very nice overview of the island, including some amusing 3 or 4 point turns around the tight switchbacks. It can drop you at some nice beaches, and quite a few beaches are only accessible by boat. There are many boat rental sites, and PHL has a discount available with the family's other enterprise Diva Luna. We missed the mandatory trip to nearby island of Palmarola due to a family member's illness, but Diva Luna was most gracious in letting us out of our reservation without penalty -- certainly something they weren't obligated to do. We'll be back, and would love to dive the area. The water was pristine. We were lucky enough to be there for the Festa di San Silverio, and wow! -- can that little town do fireworks!
