When I first arrived in Ponce, I stayed in the Hotel Melia, courtesy of my new employer, while I looked for an apartment for my wife and myself. I was very pleased with this property. Not only was I downtown, so to speak (downtown is not very large), I was near several Ponce landmarks, some excellent restaurants, and I enjoyed a very enjoyable "home town" feel to my new home city. Like most all hotel lobbies in Puerto Rico, the lobby at this hotel was not air-conditioned, but pleasant, nicely appointed, and staffed with wonderful and helpful desk personnel. The room I stayed in was small, but very clean, comfortable, and nicely appointed. The maid service was excellent, too. For an older, retro/vintage hotel, this was a very nice experience. I am glad I was able to stay there for my first week in in Ponce.
