We stayed in 2 rooms in the 1915 Centenary rooms - a little more expensive, but definitely worth it. We greatly enjoyed the staff. The pool and the Mocha Cafe are very nice. We will definitely be back soon.

I have been delaying writing this review for months now because it is so painful to say that what might be a quirky, inexpensive, but comfortable alternative for those visiting the town in which I was born and raised is the scariest hotel I have seen, ever (at least the rooms were). The public areas are alright. They reflect the...

I was in Ponce for a few weeks on business. Everyone at Hotel Melia were super friendly and service oriented. Don't stress about the language barrier as staff speak english. I really enjoyed the fact that the hotel is historic and located on the plaza. Nice pool area is a bonus. My room was very clean and fresh, housekeeping was...

We spent last night at the Melia in Ponce, arrived around 6:00PM, we were given a room 3 floors up and they had the elevator broken. The worse part was the "I don't care" attitude of the lady at the Front Desk (Andrea). I asked for a lower floor room and she did not even check. I also asked if...

The front desk agents were very attentive. The facilities need remodeling and improvements. Although the neoclassical architecture it is part of the hotel's charm, the rooms could use some remodeling. Carpets, air conditioner, bathrooms, elevator, and furniture are old and not a historical old type of thing. The location is excellent, restaurants, bars, and other attractions are in walking distance....
