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 It is outdated and it has a terrifying elevator from the 1960s without any update.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

Great location right off the plaza and really nice people. The hotel lobby has a lovely feel, taking you back years. The rooftop Panorama Lounge has a great view and ambience. Our room (in the much maligned old wing) wasn't that large or fancy, but it was perfectly serviceable and we had no problems with the air conditioning. The coolness... More

The only good thing I can think of good about this hotel is its location. Otherwise, awful. First, the elevator could carry only two people to our third floor room, which created long waits as we were on a group tour. Next the room was small, with queen bed, in lieu of the two beds requested. The desk clerk stated... More

My wife and I went for some internal tourism trip to Ponce and decided to stay in the Melia Hotel in the center of town. As seen in the promotion pictures, we were expecting an antique hotel well maintain with a 4 * service. What a deception, the hotel looks like has not been taken care for a long time,... More

Two important tips before you stay here. 1. Don't stay in the old wing of the hotel. Old rooms with horrible air conditioning (humid, warm and smelly) 2. If you do stay in the newer rooms, make sure the hotel doesn't have a schedule party at the Panorama Sky Lounge! During my stay, on a wednesday, the hotel approved a... More

This was our first stay in Ponce and the hotel Melia was the perfect location. The main plaza is just off the hotel entrance. The hotel lobby has beautiful original features. I think the lift is an original feature also. Our room was a small one but clean and had daily maid service. The staff are very friendly and very... More

If you like old style hotels, this one is for you - rooms are smaller but comfortable - The entire Hotel has a 60's feel with supper nice staff and is updated, clean & quiet. Secure Hotel parking is available for $6.00 per night. You can get a feel of the age of the Hotel when using the Max 2... More

It had the feel of old world but with new world conveniences. We had a plaza facing king sized bedroom which I believe was 1940's style. We loved everything about it. It felt like the 1940's but we had a TV and A/C which was nice. The view was wonderful. The family really enjoyed it.

The Staff are friendly! The pool is too small. You have to pay for parking! The room need some improvement!!! the beds are very uncomfortable and hard. it is a clean place. The best part is the location! You have access to lots of restaurants and shops within walking distance.
