The Meridian is a wonderful hotel and spa, but my experience soured me on the place. First the good stuff. The hotel is set on the ocean, with a marina facing south, four great restaurants on the property, a spa, indoor heated and outdoor unheated pools, a pebble beach, and attentive staff. Nothing wrong here, five stars so far. But...
