Conceived in 1895, we are the oldest continuously operating hotel in Puerto Rico. Meliá is a landmark of timeless elegance and ageless beauty located in a historic zone in the heart of Ponce, Puerto Rico. Meliá was the first hotel in Puerto Rico to offer a telephone line and a private bathroom in each room.
From very early times the hotel became well known for its attention to personal details, cleanliness, hospitality, service and courtesy. It quickly became a preferred destination for Ponce business travelers. «Mr. Meliá is a prince of hosts, and a man who never grudges at going out of his way to oblige a guest» – Miguel Aguilo.
