My understanding is that the reefs are damaged by the construction process and then recover in the years following. The StR, for example, seems to have a much better reef now than it did when it...

They refused an upgrade at time of booking. While it seems to effectively be the hotel's prerogative to do so, it is certainly not advertised as such.

To me, this invalidates the entire value...
