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...

Loudly! Our next door neighbors shushed them and they got really mad! Friendly staff but if you need a good nights... More

My partner and I were ending our 10 day trip to Puerto Rico in the beautifully historic city of Poncé. Several days before checking in we stopped by the Hotel Meliá to ask for recommendations for dinner and attractions. The lovely Front Desk Agent, Emily was so kind and offered plenty of great suggestions. We enjoyed our time on the... More

I reserved the room with my CC, paid for the reservation in cash and charged the deposit to my husband's CC. Both of our cards had holds placed on them for $150 and only $70 was returned to each. I called after to dispute the charges and the accounting department was always in a meeting and never returned my calls... More
