The butler will press clothes for free (I think a couple of items a day, but doubt they're overly strict)

There's a sofa downstairs, but I wouldn't want to sleep on it. The lounger on the deck is probably better. Honestly I don't recall if there's a sofa in the corner on the top floor; there's definitely...

That's right -- a downside of the 2BR is that the pool is quite small. If you don't need the extra bedroom space (i.e. you are only 2 adults) I don't see the point of the additional space.

I personally wouldn't do that if it's just the 2 of you. The 2BR villas are large and honestly unnecessarily large for just a couple

Agree. They do not seem overly concerned with status, and rather trying to make all guests happy. I had a 10 night points redemption prior to cat 8 and I was Silver at the time and got upgraded from...

Yes it's worth it. I was also only Gold. It is what it is; it's not a cheap resort, but I think the relative value of the breakfast is very solid. You can really eat as much as you can both from the...

We also liked Cargo and did it twice with 2 different menus. Thought it was a nice meal and venue and good value for money (relative to the resort obviously).

I've been to both. St Regis is definitely a step above in quality and also a little more expensive in F&B probably. Both are very nice, but I'd personally go for St Regis every time.

I asked my Butler and she said it was usually high-seasion until Mid-Apr which sounds right this year as it coincides with Easter. You're probably right on the limit of high and shoulder season
