Resort is a bit removed from San Juan's attractions

Set in the town of Ponce along Puerto Rico's southern coast, this Hilton property appeals to a wide variety of travelers with its ample amenities and secluded setting. Couples can linger in the Jacuzzis or main pool (a guest favorite) before strolling hand-in-hand along the beach, teeing off at the 27-hole golf course or testing their luck at the casino. Meanwhile, families can splash in the spray park, play mini-golf or run around the playground. For those in town for work, the property offers a fully equipped business center and nearly 12,000 square feet of meeting and event space. Plus, Hilton Ponce's four dining establishments cater to an array of discerning palates, offering everything from authentic Puerto Rican cuisine to sushi and contemporary Chinese fare. At the end of the day, all guests can cozy up in Hilton's signature Serenity beds; rooms and suites also include flat-screen TVs, work desks and balconies. The property's daily resort fee covers additional perks, such as in-room Wi-Fi access and bike rentals, as well. Because of its ties to the Hilton brand, members of the Hilton Honors rewards program can accrue or cash in points while staying here.
