Just returned from a week in a private apartment on phase 2 of Mereverde.
It seems that the whole complex is being refurbished and that phase 1 (top of the hill), has been done. This is quite smart with the pools having been retiled and all the properties repainted. Our phase (phase 2), was in the middle of being refurbished. 2 of the pool areas outside our room where empty and being retiled/repaired. This was not much of an inconvenience as we just used the pool 20 yards up.
I think when the refurbishment is completed (which I think will be a while as the work seemed very slow) - maybe 12 months? , then I think it will be quite smart.
Notwithstanding the above, our room was very clean and quite modern. Everything worked and the beds were comfy. Once the doors were opened it soon cooled down and was really pleasant.
The resort is probually 25% residential and 75% touirist. When we were there it always seemed very quiet and the people we did meet seemed very friendly.
There are lots of cats, but this never bothered us. We never noticed any smells.
The pool area was very clean but was very cold. I think its unheated and in the shade in the morning. Maybe warmer later in the day.
The location of the resort is great. Its a 10 min walk to the beach, with plenty of bars on the way. There is a great supermarket in the basement of the new shopping centre opposite which is very cheap. Bit hard to find, but worth searching out. Also, lots of great eats places nearby.
All in all, for the money we paid, we found the resort to be good value. We never saw any trouble or had any complaints. As i said, when the refurb is fully complete, then I am sure it will look even better, as there are areas that do look `tired`.
Dont let the really bad reports put you off. As I said, the location of the resort really is ideal.
Hope the above proves helpful.
