I'm staying at this resort and it is an awesome place to stay. Friendly staff, very helpful and accommodating. Resort is across the street from a great beach and walking distance to good food and entertainment. Best of all it is an inexpensive quick cab ride from the airport. Been here 5 times and will always come back!

The Merriweather Resort is a special place. Sure, you can spend your money on fancier or newer places which are just a few doors away. But it won't be the Merriweather. My family and I used to go there every other year back in the 60's and into the late 70's. It was "our" place. Recently I surprised my parents... More

Once again I had the great fortune of spending a weekend "stay-cation" at the Merriweather. As usual, the staff was amazing!! Mary Jo is the kindest employee anyone could ever ask to deal with. The room was spotless, the view breathtaking!! All in all.... I couldn't ask for more! Can't wait for my next trip down there!

Resort is located in an excllent area and directly accross from the beach. The resort is clean and the staff are welcoming, and efficient. The resort is not fancy or pretentious, but you will feel very comfortable. There are many restaurants and shops within walking distance, and the Ft Lauderdale Trolley can transport you all the way down to River... More

I've stayed here before, but each time I come it seems to be getting better and better. They recently updated the kitchens and they're gorgeous now. I love staying here! It's so convenient to the beach. All you have to do is walk outside and you're there! I would totally recommend this place!

I must start off by saying that Mary Jo (the manager) is an angel. She made my stay along with my 4 year old daughter a wonderful one! This place is superb, its very cozy, quiet, cute, comfortable I just cant say enough good things about it. Everything was clean, from the parking area, the pool all the way to... More

Great place to stay! Very, very clean. The staff, from the manager to the maid were so friendly and courteous. We went on a long weekend gate-a-way and truly enjoyed our stay at the Merriweather. We will be back.

My children and I recently stayed at the Merriweather Resort. The location was perfect. It is directly across from the beach and close to shops and restaurants. They also have a pool area which was very popular with the kids. The resort manager was very friendly and accommodating. The resort offers towels, beach chairs and umbrellas to borrow daily. You...

Manager Mary Jo was super nice and extremely accommodating when our flights were delayed and we couldn't arrive until after the office closed. Clean studio apartment room. Front desk woman was also extremely helpful in getting us a taxi when the one we reserved didn't show up.

First let me say, I can't imagine ANYONE saying a bad word about Mary Jo, as the previous reviewer did. That person clearly didn't stay here, and must have called at a very busy time. Mary Jo is one of the most friendly, accommodating people you will ever meet. She bent over backwards to make our stay enjoyable, and she... More
