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

We wanted to do something different, and go around the Island. Decided to go to this hotel in POnce for only one night based on what we saw in their site on the internet. Their site is far from reality, the hotel is old, dated, seems dirty beyond beleive. We were given a room and when we went up to... More

A couple of years ago I visited this hotel with my partner and was so happy with the renovations of this landmark that we did the most reasonable thing there is and recommended it to my in-laws. Well, we failed. Big time. Last weekend they stayed at room 216. Remember that number. The room was filthy. Dirty walls, dusty baseboards,... More

It was a very pleasant stay. Very nice room, very professional staff. Nice experience. Pool was cold but very enjoyable. The food was good. The night life was nice, we went to Boardwalk La Guancha, it was like a 15 minutes drive. Very good food around the corner from the hotel. I would like to go again.

We arrived late. The sign "Melia" lights up an entry way along the calle that is boarded up and closed long ago. The front door is not well marked and on a narrow side street where we didn't want to leave our car unattended. The front desk informed that for $6 a day we could park behind a gate which... More

Hotel staff was friendly and courteous. Great location. Rooms are a little tired. Was there on friday so it is noisy at night. Best part for us was the roof top bar and restaurant! The manager took care of us food was delicious and the drinks great! We stayed there overnight because we wanted to go to the art museum.... More

I loved the stay, room service was amazing. This is not a fancy hotel, this is a hotel that allows you to experience the history Ponce! I stayed here for a week, the room only included the bed, dresser, box tv, 3 lamps, iron, hair dryer, and a bathroom. We did not need a mini fridge, coffee maker, or microwave... More
