Taking a look at redemption rates during the nights I'll be there, I see what has to be the highest CPP redemption in Marriott history. The cash rate for the JJA Estate for 6 nights is $201k while...

Brian Kelly himself is hardly a beacon of substance and integrity. He's a bit busy being taken to the Oscars by Marriott's CMO to do the writing himself these days. TPG is the biggest shill in the...

Can't speak for the OP here, but I shoot on the a7iii, usually either 14 or 24mm (Sigma 14 1.8, Sony 24 1.4), at between f/1.4 and f/2.4. ISO varies but usually not lower than 800 (no point) and not...

FWIW I don’t think you’d have a privacy issue in 535. The barriers on either side of the deck and the angle of the villa mean that neither those in the villas next to you nor those on the island...

I suppose the resort could be thinking that people staying in the 2-3 bedroom villas are likely families with kids who may value privacy less than couples on a romantic getaway.

The north facing regular (non-sunset) OWVs do not see others either. In general I would agree with your other points though. If booking a base room (points or cash) I would probably prefer WA but if...

May is generally not considered high season. Are you sure that $500 rate was for a standard OWV and not for a SOWV or StR Suite? The most recent non-peak upgrades rates I've seen posted are 246.40...

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...
