I stayed in the Melia Hotel from 2017- 2018 after hurricane Maria.The Melia is a historic hotel that is in walking distance to many Resturants ,bars,museums,gift shops ,casino ,churchs,clothing stores and other shops in historic down town Ponce.They have a salon that can be transformed to your desire for any occasion ,mettings , wedding , parties ,etc . The foyer has been updated beautifuly , with a brand new caribbean restaurant and bar . Since hurricane Maria the rooftop bar has been damaged and closed. They have added a new bar in the lobby and in the courtyard with occasional entertainment. They have a pool with a kiddy pool .The elevator has been damaged during hurricane maria so they have friendly staff that will help you with your luggage. The hotel staff is awsome ! If you need any suggestion,help,or support ,they will be there for all of your needs. The hotel Melia is a beautiful and historical hotel that is being updated daily. In all i had an awsome stay and will stay again when i come back to visit,

The conditions of the hotel where bad. The A/C is difficult to control. The hot water in the shower is not working. The room was not comfortable. The corridors mats where wet and the conditions of the hotel where too bad.

I would give 0 if ai could...I live in Tampa, FL and love to travel. I always compare nearby hotels to find out that special one. Per hotel website, it has a top deck with a bar with a nice view. Well to my surprise it was no longer there. But of course the lazy careless manager (who keep blaming Hurricane Maria -2 years ago-) doesn’t give a damn and failed to check the website to make sure is accurate. I immediately notified the front desk and wanted to speak with the manager in 2 occasions, but the princess was not available. Front desk sent her 2 messages. Finally, on my 3rd attempt to speak with her (she must be a great manager that not even the employees know her complete name) she hesitated to speak with me. I asked her if she knew about my complaint and she said “yes I read a message”. I was like ok so you read the message and didn’t bother to call me and explain to me. Then I told her about how my dissatisfaction and disappointment were still with me...the ceiling was leaking and nobody went to check. To be honest I don’t think she notified anyone. Overall hotel sucks! Elevator is not working and they don’t even bother to give a courtesy call to let ppl know. Very outdated and don't give me the BS is an old hotel cause that’s not an excuse. This manager “Ana” is screwing this hotel. Rest of staff is great. My next step is DACO. This hotel is deceiving with inaccurate amenities and giving false advertising. Definitely Im not coming back to this hotel or Ponce.

Response from office_management, Guest Relations Manager at Hotel Melia Ponce
Responded 2 weeks ago
Yaritsa, Meeting our client’s expectations is our priority, which is why we regret your opinion is not complementary as the rest of our clients. Nor our website or property description or photos in Booking.com state that we have a Rooftop or top deck, as the staff or manager told you we do not have it since Hurricaine María and we updated our websites content since we no longer have it, we apologize for the inconvenience but we truly do not know from where you optained such information. The inconvenience of the elevator is stated in the property description under Booking.com and in the confirmation e-mail we sent to all of our guests. We did attent your complaint regarding the leaking in a timely manner and our staff expert determined it was air conditioning condensation. However we have sent your observations to the corresponding departments to reinforce our service. We encourage you to visit us again to meet your expectations and change your perception.

Loved the time spent in Meliá hotel in Ponce, Puerto Rico this Christmas, everything was clean and nice. I was there a few times before but this last time was better. Everyone from the staff was very nice, especially Alfonso from the front desk, he was very attentive and humble. Definitely will be coming back and will recommended.
