Positive Reviews


City Central

Located in the heart of Ponce, Meliá boasts a perfect location for exploring the entire city on foot. There is plenty of shopping, dining, nightlife, museums, and sightseeing within walking distance. Furthermore, the Ponce International Airport is only four miles away, making travel a breeze.



Guests appreciated having onsite parking, that is constantly monitored by the hotel personnel. Most of the staff at Meliá is friendly, helpful, and accommodating. If you run into any problems, they will try to resolve it in an efficient manner. As an added bonus, guests were surprised to receive two free welcome drinks upon check-in.



Make sure to check out Panorama, the rooftop bar and restaurant. Guests said they enjoyed their experience there, especially the beautiful views. In addition, Panorama hosts a lot of live entertainment and music on most nights.

Negative Reviews


Boring Breakfast

Most guests weren't too impressed with the breakfast offered, saying it's quite boring and doesn't have a good selection to choose from. Furthermore, many items ran out quite quickly and the staff wasn't in a hurry to replace it.


Oldest Hotel

Several guests thought renovations are necessary as some rooms that were not well maintained have begun to show their age. The decor is dated and the rooms appear dark, as they lack large windows. In addition, the furniture and carpet appears worn and some guests disliked the old TV units. Cosmetic touch ups, too, would refresh the overall look.



Though most of the staff was pleasant, several guests thought the rest were poorly trained, not well-managed and not very efficient.
