Hotel Meliá

75 Calle Cristina, Ponce, n/a Puerto Rico, 00733, Puerto Rico

In the heart of the city, this family-owned hotel has been a local landmark for more than 120 years; in fact, it claims to be the island's oldest hotel. Its neoclassical facade, with flags from a dozen countries waving in the breeze, is reminiscent of small hotels in Spain. The lobby, with beamed ceilings and blue-and-beige tile floors, is well worn but very charming. The best rooms have French doors leading out to small balconies; many suites have terrific views of the main square. The Panorama Sky lounge offers spectacular city views. A waterfall drops into the beautiful tiled swimming pool.
