Peppers or Meriton....is peppers really worth the extra $$$?

Been deciding between both for 4 nights.

They seem on par on many levels, with Peppers offering a few other things, which quite frankly in 4 days we wont use

I cant seem to find a price for peppers for a 2 bed for less that $290 per night. Meriton is much much cheaper than that!!

The main thing really is the pol....doesnt need to be big, ( i wont swim) but I love to lay in the full sun for a few hours, and the Peppers pool does look amazing. Ive heard Meriton is small (no matter) but is it in full sun during the day and are the loungers comfy and enough?

Thoughts please

Its difficult to comment on value for money without knowing how much your quote for Meriton is and without viewing the rooms you will eventually be given.

However, I can say both are very high quality buildings with excellent facilities.

That said, The Orcale building is of such a high standard that it is difficult to for any buildings to match.

Some other considerations for you:

The Oracle is marginally closer to the beach. Better pool area and I would say in a sunnier position. Closer to shops and restaurants.

The Meriton does have a heated indoor pool.

The Oracle is massive and a true 5 star facility. Meriton Broadbeach is 4.

Both are very good so I guess it comes down to how much more you are willing to pay for all those conveniences.
