    Stylish neo-colonial rooms (on ground floor close to swimming pool), beautifull courtyard inside the hotel and hotel roof for your breakfast, swimming pool, excellent position on the main Ponce square, parking just behind the hotel. Very helpfull staff.

    No restaurant available on the spot (at least by end Oct 2012), on weekends may be noisy (especially for those with windows looking over the street).

    The room was a little run-down, small and not so comfortable (for the price)

    I have done my share of travelling and stayed in a good number of hotels and I can honestly say that Melia in Ponce is the best-run, most old- school customer-oriented hotel I have ever known, holding itself to a code of professionalism rarely seen these days in any line of business. 5 times now I have been to Ponce and 5 times I have gone with Melia. I would never think of staying anywhere else! Melia's staff is the epitome of class and professionalism, at every level and in all areas. Just as very typical example, on my most recent trip my friend and I were driven to the airport to catch our return flight by the front desk manager (at 2:00 AM, no less) when we were unable to get a taxi. As with everything else, this was done graciously and automatically. I could go on and on all day about this hotel, but suffice it to say I wish more hotels would model themselves on Melia... The world would be a much happier place!

    The central location right on the Plaza was superb, handy to shops and restaurants and places of interest within the town, and there is a fantastic ice cream shop that we frequented just below. The hotel was very traditional in its feel, Spanish style, and had a good pool which was great respite from the heat, our 4 teenage boys loved it. We would stay there again given the chance, really lovely spot and great value for money.

    The bed in our room had bad roll together, we ended up asking for a rollaway bed for one of us to sleep on so that we didnt have to share, it was too uncomfortable. A good mattress on the bed we had would have seen us give Hotel Melia 5 stars, a shame that aspect let it down.

    Besides the charm of a Hotel that has operated for over 100 years, the natural friendliness and courtesy of Ponce residents was evident in the Hotel staff. The "Continental Breakfast" needs fruits, natural cereals and real cups and dishes instead of plastic and paper. I will stay here again.

    Old city charm in the center of Ponce

    The room had some construction detales that could be taken care of without much expenditure.

    Hotel Melia was right across the street from the main plaza which was great as we stayed there over Carnaval, so we had a front row seat every night to the festivities from our balcony. The only drawback was the noise from the festivities, but we were warned by the hotel so we knew what we were getting ourselves into. The hotel was very charming, I loved the open air corridors. The roof top terrace where they serve breakfast was very nice and had some great views of the city. The rooms were quite large and very comfortable. The furniture and decor is pretty outdated, but added to the charm of the hotel.

    It is located right at the central square, we could see the carneval procession from the balcony. The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful, the room was clean and comfortable, and the pool easily accessible.

    Location, location, location! Great place to be to celebrate Mardi Gras. Neat cultural experience!

    Room extremely small- half the size of what I expected as if an older room cut in half when they remodeled it. Found cockroach bug on floor- yuck!

    Great location on main city square. Roof-top breakfast area was very nice. Classic hotel, clean and well maintained.

  • Single

    The hotel is very nice, histirical, good location and excelent sevice. Not very good price, but just like all the hotels in the island of Puerto Rico. By the way there are not too many...

    Well, kind of bit noise because some machines of the hotel, but the staff was perfect in responde of that.

    We loved the classic feel of the hotel, the garden areas, and the pool. The location and parking were perfect for our needs and we will definitely stay there again next time we're in Ponce.
