Great stop at the heart of Ponce
Posted Jun 28, 2016 on Hotels
We stopped coming back from La Parguera, in order to visit old town Ponce the following morning. While there are others hotels in Ponce, this one is the best hotel located right on the recreational Plaza. It was a great choice. After a restful evening, we were within walking distance of all of the key sites in old town Ponce, including the cathedral, the historic fire house, City Hall, the market (Plaza del Mercado) and the pedestrian shopping street (Calle Marina). There are many restored buildings near the Plaza with great charm and architecture. If you come this far, do stop at the ice cram shop located on the entrance to Hotel Melia located across the recreational Plaza (down the street of the historic fire station, on the opposite sidewalk). Parking on the hotel (by the casino) was safe and cost effective (about $11 USD/day). After lunch, we departed the old town for other sights located outside on the old town center. It turned out to be a great choice of hotel. Our room was a modern 2 bedroom suite, with 2 full baths, with a sofa bed, easily accommodating 5 to 6 folks. Staff was friendly and attentive. If you use YELP efficiently, you will easily discover great locations for breakfast, lunch, or dinner, as old town Ponce has a few great restaurant all within walking distance of this hotel. I recommend it, and plan to use again on my next visit to Ponce.
