“not what you see”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 1, 2007

If you are looking for the type of accomodations that you see in company info, you may be surprised. Beds were terrible, couch is very uncomfortable and the place has a feeling of being old and poorly upgraded(check the upgraded painting on the walls). Not really worth the money, could do better by using a hotel and planning your own golf packages(play after 2pm if possible).

My family have just returned from a 17 day stay at The meridian. We had a two bed, two bathroom condo overlooking the pool. The pool, excercise facilities and tennis courts were great. There were no facilities to hire tennis raquets but we just bought 2 raquets from walmart which probably would have cost as much as hiring them anyway. We had one problem with the shower just after we arrived and meridian couldn't have been more helpful. It was all fixed within a couple of hours. We had a late check-in on Labour day weekend which was no problem at all. Meridian gave us easy directions to their office & everything was waiting for us on arrival. We decided to extend our stay by a day due to a late flight in the evening and again Meridian arranged this without any trouble. We didn't play golf so can't comment on that but everything else was excellent. There is a Fry's and Safeway one block away and great shopping and fantastic restaurants are in abundance. A great holiday was had by all.

  • Liked — Pool and exercise facilities
  • Disliked — nothing
  • Tips/Secrets — A pool side view or golf course view is preferable

The condo was appropriate for the four of us, although it was not as large or decorated as it appeared on the net. Very deceiving. Beautiful grounds, pool was fabulous, exercise room, etc.

Our stay would have been satifactory if it weren't for the worse mattress on the king size bed in the second room. We have never experienced anything in such a low conditon as this. It was unbeliveable that Meridian would consider this exceptable. It was like sleeping on the floor along with only three pancake pillows. Also the switches on two of our table lamps were worn out and did not work, meaning we were short two lamps with no ceiling lights.

When Meridian was consulted the following morning they would not reimbursment us for the two foamies and pillows we had purchased. Their explanation was that no one had mentioned anything prior. They offered another room which we did not except as we had already settled in after being on the road for 7 days.

Other than the poor key drop point which is ridiculous as you can not drop your keys of at the location of your stay, the condo resort was beautiful and accomodating.

The instructions for finding the golf courses were excellent and we enjoyed them.

Shape up Meridian and have someone inspect your rooms to customer satifaction!!

This was a high price to pay for a marginal apartment. Our family of 6 wanted the facility to have plenty of sleeping areas and the ability to cook our own meals. The facility is an apartment, with permanent residents around, poorly furnished kitchen, broken furniture and tacky decorations. We all had our own bed (a plus) but it was not worth the price to cook our own meals. A hotel and going out with 4 children for everymeal would have been less frustrating than working with these facilities (bbq's filthy and don't self ignite) They don't even provide supplies to keep the place clean. Next time we will get two hotel rooms at a nice, clean resort.

I stayed at meridian condo resorts with my family and it was a great experiance. Instead of getting 2 hotel rooms for the whole family we got a 2 bedroom condo with tv's in each room as well as a full kichen,washing machine,dryer and a patio. The amenities were also great there was a beach pool, work out room hot tub and much more. I would definetly recomend staying with this company they even set up all of my golfing while I was there.

Accommodations were better than advertised. Rooms & bathrooms were immaculate. Grounds were great, workout facility and pools were easy accessible. Meridian staff was extremely knowledgeable and helpful with regards to restaurants/attractions. All my golf needs were taken care of by their staff, no tee times to book. Their knowledge of local courses and skill levels needed to be competitive was unbelievable.

The staff seemed to be very accomodating, but the management of the company was not very helpful. We booked a golf package for four guys for the weekend and our flight was delayed. The airline took care of us and allowed us an extra day in Scottsdale, but we were not allowed to play golf on that day because the owners said we had not paid for it, even though we had paid extra for a weekend day, Friday, and were trying to play on a Monday to make up for our missed day. The staff was very apologetic, but when we asked for a refund or at least a day of golf that we had paid for, we were rebuffed in our efforts. I definitely will not use this company again for any vacation package.
