Stayed for one night after a day trip to Caja de Muerto. I requested a room in front to the Plaza to enjoy the view. A HUGE MISTAKE!!....Loud music from the cars do not allowed me to sleep until 3:30 am. Curtains were dirty needed to be replaced. AC was not working properly, it was kind of hot, no matter the A/C setting. Not impressed with the hotel, nothing comparable to the website photos. Breakfast was very good at the pool cafe. I will give a second chance but in interior rooms (for a short stay).

Room Tip: Ask for interior rooms if you want to get some rest! Great breakfast and coffee!

This hotel was founded in 1890 and according to the gentleman in front desk it is the oldest one still in business in Puerto Rico. From the moment I entered the facility to ask for the parking lot to check out time service and attentions from all the staff were incredible. Once inside it's time to travel back in time and imagine all the history contained between the walls of this colonial building. The rooms are very clean and room service great, breakfast is cooked fresh from scratch in a small terrace overlooking the pool and the prices are very moderate. There is a roof top bistro with bar and live music on weekends from which the view of downtown Ponce is awesome. Don't expect luxury but amenities such as cable wi-fi and a/c are there to make guests feel comfortable. If visiting the southern part of the island consider this option .

Room Tip: If couple ask for one of the rooms with a king bed. Always check for seasonal offers.

Its ok..I was there for a night and I am not a big fan. A lot of bars around the area. The place is a bit too old and the room is too small.Ponce is a beautiful city but there are better hotels around the area.

Great experience at the historic Hotel Meliá Ponce. I definitely recommend this hotel if you are planning to explore the historic district of Ponce. Upon arriving I was greeted by an amazing staff. My room was very clean and cozy. Wonderful getaway and would definitely return!!! Hope it will be soon.

Room Tip: Ask for the historic rooms. I was told they are 100 years old and they are beautiful and totally re...
