My girlfriend and I stayed here in Jan2014 as a vacation from our Buenos Aires vacation. We wanted something close to the beach and near shopping, and the Merit met both of these requirements.
The staff was very helpful and friendly. We don't speak Spanish, and they were extremely pleasant and patient with us. From helping us find the shopping areas, to giving us extra towels for the beach, to helping us figure out cabs... they were excellent.
We had an ocean view from the room and there was plenty of shopping within walking distance. I never felt unsafe. A+ for location
I liked the breakfast buffet and the option to sit out on the balcony and have an ocean view with morning coffee. Very relaxing.
We were not big fans of the room. It was very bare, and the shower had half a door. Not sure if this was by design, but it resulted in everything getting pretty wet when we showered. There also seemed to be some condensation coming from the toilet and onto the floor. To summarize - the bathroom always seemed damp. The safe didn't work and the air conditioner was loud next to the bed.
The hallways and elevator felt claustrophobic to me.
Not a horrible experience at all. This is perfect if you just want a room with a bed and don't care about the rest I mentioned in the review. Personally, I wouldn't book here again. If I returned to Mar del Plata, I would look at condo rentals as those seem to be the better option.
