This is a beautiful historic hotel with period appropriate rooms. The 1960s room we booked (314) had a very comfortable bed, was very clean and had a beautiful view. The Mocha coffee shop has delicious food and great coffee. We had lunch (chicken wrap and turkey sandwich) there one day and breakfast (waffles and an omelette) another. The staff was... More

I booked the Melia after seeing their amazing webpage. It paints the hotel as very fun, lively, colorful and the pictures and text make it seem as a blend of old world colonial Ponce and modern ambiance. The models (and probably ex-Miss Puerto Ricos) also give it a glamorous feel. Not so try once you get there. I'll begin with... More

So my experience was actually really good!? I feel bad that others here had such a mediocre experience (at best) because I fell in love with this place. We got there at around 9:30pm on a Monday and were originally placed in a first floor room, but was immediately upgraded to a newer balcony room after our key card didn't... More

The gentleman that worked during the day worn so much cologne that the entire reception area smelled of his perfume. I'm not a fan of strong fragrances. And his mood was flat and he acted as if I was bothering him when I had questions. (3 in 4 days). The female staff was great and the cafe staff was also... More

Ok, first I got mad because this hotel just doesn't meet the expectations you get if you look at their website. Online it looks like a trendy, groovy, wonderfully renovated place to stay with lots of retro charm. Arriving at the hotel however shows you a different picture. Unfortunately this place is completely run down. We had made our reservations... More

We stayed at Hotel Melia for a wedding that we were visiting for. The hotel room was pretty basic, bed, desk, bathroom, closet, tv. When we arrived at check in at 3 pm, we were told our room was not ready. We were very hungry so we decided to get something to eat while we waited. The front desk was... More

We checked into Hotel Melia on Christmas night. Our first issue was that we called the night before, hoping to find out what time check-in is and what restaurants (if any) would be open when we arrived on Christmas night. As soon as the person answering the phone finished his greeting in Spanish and I said "hello!" in English, I... More

Lots of good eating around plus great rooftop bar. Rooms adequate size with LG bthrm and closets. Beautiful outdoor corridors. Elevator tiny and feels almost as old as hotel. Worst is decor... More

On December 11 through 13 a friend and I stayed at Hotel Melia in Ponce Puerto Rico during the celebration of the festivities of Las Mañanitas. We booked late so the available room was a small one. I have to say, the room was clean and organized. The bathroom as well with enough towels and clean. The front desk personnel... More

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
