It's in a great location right on the main square. Overall the rooms could use some sprucing up, but it was clean and safe. We ended up at the rooftop bar that night and really enjoyed that. Would stay here again next time I'm in Ponce.

The Hotel Melia in Ponce is ideally located in the center of the city; across the street from the historic Firehouse Station with its colorful façade. It's within walking distance to a variety of restaurants. It hosts a lovely café facing the pool and indoor patio where exceptional Puerto Rican coffee is served, plus a roof top bar and restaurant.... More

You can tell the hotel has long past it's glory days. Pity because it has great potential for restoring. The rooms are fair and relatively clean but it needs a big investment. There is a small cafeteria style restaurant if you dare call it that!

Excellent customer service:) Basic and comfortable rooms...very clean!. Located in the heart of Ponce. Nice pool, clean areas, green plants in the hallways, nice terrace. The only thing is that the breakfast is not the same anymore (pastelillos de carne and the baked goods, etc.) but the coffee at the cafeteria is pretty good.

The AC is not cold enough, the WiFi doesn't work, the pool closes at 6:00 pm without notification, there's is only one Ice machine and its on the first floor. Horrible customer service. For the price and there is no parking unless you pay the one from the hotel , which is not included .

This is the oldest continuously run hotel in Puerto Rico. The history of the place is amazing and the architecture is stunning! It's a great place to stay for a short stay. I say a short stay because the rooms are incredibly small. So small that the hangers in the closet have to be shoved in sideways so they can... More

This is a beautiful old hotel, very well maintained. There were wedding photos being shot while I was there, so it is a great setting. The rooms left a little to be desired, the bathroom was dusty, for example and the drawers smelled a little funny. Also the roof-top restaurant, Panorama was a bust. They had a very limited bar...
