I recently stayed at the Melia during my visit to Puerto Rico and I gave it a 4 but think it is more accurately a 3 1/2 with potential for a 5. The location is central to many shops, tourist attractions and other amenities. It is a lovely and historic hotel but could certainly use some updating in some areas... More

The Hotel Melia has been serving guests for 118 years. My GPS Madge couldn't locate the hotel among the streets and we drove around for about 15 minutes, but with the assistance of an excellent English speaking desk manager we found the place. It was worth the effort. If you enjoy a classic Spanish hotel environment, Melia Hotel is for... More

I stayed here while traveling as a chaperon with a student group. My daughter spilled water on the floor and when she used a towel to sop it up the towel was black. The room had carpet and it could not have been shampooed recently. My other daughter stepped on a shard of glass that was imbedded in the carpet.... More

This is our third stay at hotel Melia and I would stay here every time in Ponce. Nice original structure with great views of the plaza. It has the feeling of an old world hotel with many modern ameneties.

Great location!! We walked everywhere! The room was okay...kind of small but decent. The free breakfast was great and had a nice view of the pool and gardens. One thing to note - there weren't many outlets. I had to plug my phone in behind the bed and then the cord couldn't reach to the nightstand so it laid under... More

I booked the Melia on line because of its history. The hotel is right on the square in Ponce which is the center of the architecture and museums in this lovely little city. The room we booked had not been updated so we asked for a move after one night and the staff was incredibly pleasant and helpful in doing... More

When I first arrived in Ponce, I stayed in the Hotel Melia, courtesy of my new employer, while I looked for an apartment for my wife and myself. I was very pleased with this property. Not only was I downtown, so to speak (downtown is not very large), I was near several Ponce landmarks, some excellent restaurants, and I enjoyed... More
