We had the best time, the most comfortable beds I've ever slept in at a resort. So clean and the pool was immaculate all the time. The one bedroom apartments are huge with cooking facilities and dishwasher. We had the high level which is 3. So quiet. You have a washing machine and dryer just outside your door, used for two apartments and free. Fantastic staff, Simone took care of booking tours for us and John was so helpful booking us in for next year. I can't wait . This is an adults only resort . 32 rooms.
The room was ok, compact, but we had to walk up and down a corridor to get to it. They couldn't put a passageway at the end of the corridor? The pool was good but there was no gym, bikes or other onsite activities. Staff could book tours at reception but they were always under pressure. I'm sure they could run a great motel if it wasn't for those pesky guests. They advertised cable tv but the channels are analogue and the picture quality poor, and half of them don't work. Supposed to be free internet but you had to log in again after every disconnection and then it stopped working altogether. It was easier to use our mobile data.
We stayed for 3 nights at the Meridian in a 1 bedroom apt. check in was seamless and friendly, the apartment overlooking the pool was quite roomy with a good sized covered veranda. The location is excellent 5 mins walk to main tourist strip or the Marina precinct.
We arrived after hours on a transfer bus arranged by the Meridian. The bus driver carried our bags to the door and retrieved the keys to our apartment from the safe out front. Our room was a swimout which was very clean comfortable roomy well equiped and quiet. Access to and from the pool from the room deck could be difficult for some however there are ample easy entry and exit points around the pool. Friendly professional staff were happy to assist with tours directions and shopping options. Access to the underground carpark very straight forward with a lift to our floor. Will stay there again
. Booked poolside room. Lovely for the first night, unfortunately a guest/guests then moved in above us. Sounded like a herd of elephants moving about above. The herd awoke around 6am every morning, and retired around 10pm every night...hardly restful for us. The clomping noise was constant and hideous. Also every time a tap or shower was run or toilet flushed this was echoed loudly in our accommodation. A polite note was slipped under the door above advising the guest we unfortunately could hear their movements, 30 minutes later a rather aggressive woman, who was staff but didn't actually identify herself,knocked on our door and brusquely interrogated us. Wanting to know if we were the authors of said apparently offending note, and advising us in no uncertain terms that we were NOT to directly contact other guests. This I found confronting, and somewhat odd considering reception was only available strictly between the hours of 8am to 6pm. No offer was made for a room change. In summary, if an accommodation with soundproofing that is inadequate, and staff with the tact and negotiating skills of a cornered packrat does not bother you, then this venue will probably tick all the other boxes for you.
This is an aparthotel and the rooms and staff are lovely. In a fantastic location and only a 5 minute walk to the town and beach. There is even a barbecue at the pool which can be used by guests and the pool area is lovely. The town is very small and friendly and we even went snorkelling on the barrier reef which is only a 15 minute boat ride. We only stayed for 2 nights but I honestly could have stayed a lot longer.
The Meridian Resort, is centrally located within a short walking distance to the Main Street, restaurants, beach, and the marina. The resorts decor is modern spacious and has a very relaxed and tranquil atmosphere, most rooms over look the inviting pool area. Staff were very friendly and informative. We would definitely stay there again. Thanks for a great holiday.
Stayed here last week as part of our honeymoon trip to Australia. Absolutely fantastic place to stay the location could not be better everything is within walking distance maybe 3 min walk and you are in the town. Upon check in we were greeted by two lovely ladies who could not have been nicer! They were so helpful with booking tours for us to do. A lovely touch was when we entered our apartment there was a bottle of champagne with two chilled glasses waiting for us! The apartment itself was so clean and spacious had everything you needed! Only negative thing I would have to say is that the shower was cold and didn't heat up, but this small detail would not stop me staying there again! Highly recommend this place just wish we could have stayed longer!
Slightly confused when I arrived here as I thought it was a hotel not motel - but really nice place- spacious apartments with really nice furnishings, handy laundry facilities and very close to the main streets for restaurants ( but not noisy) . Would definitely stay again
Our apartment was really comfortable, clean and extremely well equipped with very efficient aircon. We overlooked the beautiful pool area which was immaculate and quiet with plenty of seating and shady areas. The management was incredibly helpful, nothing was too much trouble and everything was achieved with a smile! Staying here was one of the highlights of our five weeks in Australia and we've recommended it to others.
