Couldn't have picked a better hotel! It's not a fancy hotel but you can learn the history of it and learn to appreciate it. Has pool with two restaurants, one of which is a rooftop resturant. Resturant was amazing, it had a wonderful live band. Option of room service everyday. Also has an option of parking which is very safe,... More

This is a great hotel, it is on the city centre. The people from the front desk are kind. The breakfast area is nice, great coffee and the sky lounge is great. Near the hotel, we had great museums and other places to visit. The hotel pool is nice.

I have a mixed review for Hotel Melia. This is a great hotel if you want a place right on the square in Ponce. We had a great time wandering the square, where we found decent restaurants, saw a wedding party leaving the cathedral, and even stumbled upon a community band concert one Saturday night. That being said, I wish... More

Disappointing. Yes, city centre. Nothing more and nothing to do with trusted Spanish hotel chain. Melia in Ponce: old, tired building, ugly rooms and hall. Not three stars at all. More disappointing, their website: pictures are really artsy, nothing to see with reality. Terrible noising air conditioning in room. Impossible to sleep. Stay away.

They have renovated a few rooms facing the street instead of the square...but the air conditionig is noisy, the reception team is nice but unprofessional and slow and if you venture into Cafe Mocha for breakfast it will take ages to have your food. An alternative if Ponce Hilton is not available.

The Hotel Melia in Ponce is a charming old world gem in the heart of the historic district of Ponce. The rooms were very clean and the staff was friendly and accommodating with any request we had. Right in the middle of the historic center of Ponce, you are steps away from the historic firehouse and a beautiful cathedral. Right... More

We stayed at Meliá on our business trip. On our 4th day, a coworker was sick and asked for chicken soup. It was not on the menu. The waitress went out back and got the ingredients. She personally chopped up the ingredients and made us a really good chicken soap herself. I've never heard of a waitress doing this. She's... More

I do not usually do this, but I feel that I have to warn people about El Melia Hotel de Ponce, and I can do this because I am entitled to my opinion and to share my experience with the world so they know to NOT go to this dump... I would like to start out by saying that in... More

My guidebook highly recommended this hotel and noted that it had been renovated in 2013. Well, not entirely. The lovely young woman at the desk explained that only rooms with one bed had been renovated recently. Our double room was dingy and looked as if little had changed since about 1965 (and not in a good way). Was the bathroom... More
