Stayed an overnight at this center-of-town hotel. The hotel is right in the heart of town, which is very good for sight-seeing. The room was nice and the beds were very comfortable. The bathroom was clean - a MUST in any hotel room. The area around the pool could use a deep cleaning because the tiles are looking very dirty.... More

You couldn't pick a nicer, more authentic hotel to stay in Ponce. It's the oldest operating hotel on the island and it is very well maintained. A true testament to the dedicated employees. The staff were very familiar with the area and fluent in English and Spanish. The location provided a great base to explore Ponce and a wonderful view... More

We stumbled apon this hotel randomly late at night and couldn't have been happier. The style, neighbor hood/location and hotel staff were perfect. The history of the hotel is apparent. The art museum is walking distance and EPIC!!! I will be back!

Don't let a few hotel divas' bad reviews scare you. This place can't be beat for its central location and friendly, helpful staff. Our prepaid check-in was quick and easy, and we appreciated the complimentary welcome sangrias from the hotel's rooftop bar. The hotel parking lot is ample and secure, and at only $6 per day a good deal compared... More

We stayed at Melia for 4 days over thanksgiving while in town to visit family. This was such a treasure! The facilities are beautiful, the staff is spectacular, and the restaurant and bar are top notch. As an added bonus, they have amazing live music at night in the rooftop lounge, the performers are top notch. With respect to the... More

The Hotel Melia in Ponce is long past its prime. It has one ancient (1940 era) elevator, that has room for 2 people or one person plus a luggage cart. The room to which we were assigned was to be blunt, small and decrepit. My wife refused to stay there, and spoke to the front desk, who reassigned us to... More

It is not an attractive place to stay. It is outdated and it has a terrifying elevator from the 1960s without any update. It's only attraction is the history and the skylounge it has. The position it has near the Town's center makes it interesting for travelers but other than that, the room service is terrible. The people who clean... More

This hotel has a quaint lobby. The quaint rooms in the oldest section of the hotel--too small for 2 people to be in the room at the same time. And the mattress on our bed was very Hard. However, after complaining to Efrand, a another room was magically found ( an earlier statement that there were no more rooms). This... More
