“Merriweather Resort a pleasure”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2008

My name is swede from Philadelphia Pa. this is about the six time I've stayed here; I found my stay to be a total joy! The view and location is perfect. Everything that I needed was tended too. Kept very clean and they were mindful around my activities. The women running the Merriweather Mary-Jo I think, was fantastic to deal with reservations, stay and knowledge of the area-everything.

My name is Kim Diamond and my husband and I have been staying at the Merriweather Resort for almost 20 odd years, and we do not wish to stay anywhere else. The place is so nice, clean, and the staff is so friendly, helpful and have become like a family when we are there. Mary Jo is the Merriweather Resort, she runs a tight ship and is so accomodating at the same time. Mary Jo has gone above and beyond her call of duty to please each and every guest that is staying at the Merriweather. We cannot say enough about this place. We are extremely satisfied with each and every time we stay , which last year we were able to visit 5 times. Thank-You Mary-Jo for being such a great person. Love Kim and Tom

I have been to other condo's in the area, hands down, the Merriweather is the best. Its small, close to action for all ages, the staff is great, the rooms are clean and spacious and the pool is clean. The place is never crowded and the beach, is unsurpassed in the U.S. Great times.

  • Liked — It is never crowded and the Beach is unreal
  • Disliked — Nothing.

Have friends that live in Ft. Lauderdale but decided to spend one night at the beach by ourselves. We chose the Merriweather beacause of it's location, which is great. In walking distance to bars and restaurants and right across from the beach. The hotel itself is very nice and clean. A litlle dated but perfect for a couple of nights. There are dogs and cats that are roming around that belong to the staff but my husband and I felt that was a plus, we're dog lovers and we were missing ours. The front desk staff is very friendly and helpful. We loved the place because it has a homey feeling. We will definately stay there next time we go back.

This is a location exclusively for pet owners to vacation at the beach. A week long sleepless vacation spent with dogs barking and howling at the moon convinced us never to return. Mary Jo, the property manager, suggested we needed to understand that the guests who were with their dogs were timeshare owners and not just paying guests. That distinction is lost on me as we had every bit as much right to an enjoyable vacation as they did. Her solution: Get used to it.
Additionally other guests were allowed to park in more than their allotted one space. Some using up to three meaning there was not enough parking to go around. We were left with alley way parking on more than one occasion resulting in our being awakened at 7AM to move our "illegally parked" single vehicle. Definitely take a pass on this place.

Stayed January 2007
