The Merriweather Resort is amazing from check in to check out. The rooms are like luxury apartments, the property is beautiful as well as peaceful, and the staff is amazing. They really care about you and that you have the best time possible. Another huge plus is that they are pet friendly. Just walking distance to see the beautiful boat...

This place is right in the middle of the action of Ft Lauderdale, among the high rises, but it is a nice small resort, with decent pricing and helpful staff. This is a small place, with about 25-30 rooms. The staff knows you well and caters to your needs. Easy walk to many restuarants. The beach is directly across the...

We found this place by accident and have been coming back ever since! Love the large clean rooms and the location. Everyone in office has worked here for many years so that says a lot! The beach is right across the street and there are usually chairs in office they let you borrow. Not your fancy fancy hotel, but that's...

The rooms were very well appointed. Daily house cleaning was a plus. The staff were incredibly helpful and friendly. Thank you Maryjo for all your help! The ocean views from the third floor were beautiful. Close to restaurants, bars and CVS for all your vacation needs. We can't wait to go back!
