Yawn. Here we go again. Someone signs up for FT account to bash a travel provider, never to be seen again.

There are two sides to every story. Glad that OP got to share his/hers.

My problem with the duvet is not with the texture, but the thickness. They are way too hot for me. I usually throw off the duvet, then use the blanket that is in the closet instead.

Good stuff! A couple of observations: 1) besides the Hilton, there is also a Hampton Inn in Los Cabos, MX, and 2) the Hilton in Curacao is going away very soon.

It did look nice, but I decided against it when I started hearing about all of the tumult in some Central American countries. I chose the Mahogany Bay Resort in Belize instead.

I agree that the water elevator is once in a lifetime experience to simply say that you did it.

It is not very exciting. Moves slow. Long lines to take your turn. Etc.

HGVC at HWV is now "open"

It looks like they now have enough timeshare units finished in the Ocean Tower to call the HGVC "open."

I was looking at an award stay for some future dates. When I plugged in two adults and two children, it would only allow me to book Terrace View - One King Bed.

Thank you for sharing! I am not a fan of this new breakfast benefit. It forces us into the most expensive option that the resort offers.

It is probably best that you read up on the T&C's before staying at each brand. I don't know what other brands that you stayed at, but upgrades are not a stated Honors benefit at ES.

In the case of my flights, it was a non-refundable ticket. They cancelled it for me anyways, at no charge, since the change was greater than two hours. They put the UR back into my account.
