Colonial-inspired furniture and architecture
Family-managed and owned for decades
Melia Hotel rooms reflect the traditional touches of the rest of the property, from wood furniture to gilded frames. Striped bedding in navy blue and gold also boast a floral pattern, an elegant accent that coordinates with upholstered dining chairs. In some rooms, big picture windows reveal the hotel's greatest quality: its proximity to Plaza Las Delicias, which faces the building. Each room comes with cable TV, a hair dryer and ironing board.
Melia Hotel guests looking to explore the rich history of Ponce will find some of the city's most famous landmarks within walking distance. Facing Plaza Las Delicias, the boutique hotel brims with old-world appeal driven by archways, chandeliers, intricate tile and stately columns and a patio with lush landscaping.
The property is also close to the Museum of the History of Ponce, Serralles Castle and the Municipal Government of the city of Ponce. Visitors can catch free trolley tours to learn more about the city's deep history. An on-site restaurant and private pool, where a waterfall trickles from a stone wall, round out the offerings.
