Although the views are partly blocked on the bayside, this is a beautiful property. Rooms are nicely maintained, the pool area is amazing and it is convenient to a lot of things the city has to offer. You could even walk to Casco Viejo from here.
That being said, I still felt the service was mixed. I stayed there twice. The first time, the service was so good I cancelled the other hotel and jumped back to this hotel. Unfortunately, the second time was mixed. Some staff members were constantly smiling and offering their help while others were simply not willing to help. First time check-in was smooth while the second time needed much improvement.
Breakfast buffet was small but sufficient. I had the same experience here; one time I could not even get a water refill. Another time, the service was excellent.
I stayed at the InterContinental, too. Although it was a better experience, I would definitely come back to Le Meridien.
I shared my concerns with the GM and he was pretty quick with his response. Hence the 4 stars.
