150,000 points, what are some places I should consider?

I have been staying in a Wyndham hotel since September, and will be at that hotel until the first week in January. By the end of the stay, I should have over 150,000 points (I think).

I've been browsing around trying to find the best value for my points. I was considering in All-inclusive stay in Playa Del Carmen at either the Azteca, or Maya. I have access to free flights as well....what are some other places I should look at or consider?

I have been all around, and I love seeing new things. I was hoping to use them at a warm location, preferably with a beach, hence why I was looking at the hotels mentioned above. I've been to Cancun many times, but never Playa Del Carmen. I am also open to suggestions anywhere!

Koloa Landing - check it out. I prefer the Grand Hyatt, but both are pretty fantastic

Doctor of Credit had some good information on this back in May:

Also, here is an interesting Loyalty Traveler post regarding the Dolce properties:

I think this property will be leaving the program after 1/1/16. At least at the 15K point level.

We just booked 5 nights there for 15K/night in late September 2016.

The Shelbourne in Miamk was great and at 600 a night 15000 points is a steal.

Have the all inclusives left the reward program? I do not see them having availability. I was going to get a few hundred thousand wyndham reward points but not sure now.

They just left Wyndham. They are going independent till they complete requirements to become Marriott autograph. That isn't happening till end of year.

I have my reservations for June on points. No way to make changes or move days now. I am trying to get it in writing they are honoring every thing.

I did find out that all award nights are only for a one bedroom. If they put you in a two bedroom they lock the second bedroom door. 100 a night to use second bedroom.

Their new tower with studios and one bedrooms should open June or July. I am just glad I got my rooms a few weeks ago.

I totally agree with this--just spent five nights at the Shelbourne. High quality accommodation on the beach and just two blocks from start of Lincoln Road "hip and happening" retail and restaurants area.

If you are into "the Orlando thing", Wyndham Grand Orlando Resort Bonnet Creek is the only other high quality "almost" aspirational" property I can think of in the Wyndham system. It is fairly new, and gets 4.5 stars at Tripadvisor.

Ramada Khao Lak - $200 in high season. Free enormous breakfast for every registered guest (up to 3 in standard room). Rated #3 out of 70 on TripAdvisor and one of my best hotel experiences.

The JW Marriott up the street is 35,000 Marriott pts.

I am going to try out the Wyndham All Inclusive in the Dominican Republic in a couple of months. Specifically the Viva Wyndham Dominicus Beach.

I would shop around... and look for ones that allow you to buy down the rate at 3,000 points plus cash.

Found many that reduce a 200-250 a night to ~50 bucks and spend 3,000 points. Some big savings to be had. Hitting some properties around BWI and DC using this method with my wife later in year.

That is a great looking hotel, and surprisingly cheap on paid stays. So much so that it doesn't make sense to use Wyndham Rewards. I just checked the rates there for Labor Day Weekend, which should be one of the resorts peak periods, and the cash rate is $113.50/nt. I wouldn't burn 15,000 Wyndham points for that. What's silly is the Go Fast rate is $150.00! $113.00 cash and earn 1,000+ Wyndham points or $150.00 and lose 3000 Wyndham points...hmmm
