I find this kind of annoying. When searching for specific properties by resort code, you end up getting results that you were not searching for. Some examples are;

  • Searching for any of the Royal Properties in Cancun, you get results for all of them. This is the most annoying because I use resort codes to filter out the mandatory AI, but with the Royal Resorts, searching for say Royal Islander which is not AI, you end up getting results for Royal Sands which is mandatory AI.
  • Searching for any Marriott Hilton Head Island property returns results for all of them. Searching for beach front properties ends up in lots of results for the non beach properties.
  • Searching for any of the Marriott Palms properties at the Marriott's World Center ends up returning results for all three properties. This is an issue if you are searching for the 3BR only property of Imperial Palms, you get results for Sabal and Royal as well. Also, if you want to avoid the no elevators at Sabal and search for Royal Palms only, you still get results for Sabal.

I get the same thing for some instant searches, including for Hilton Head Marriotts. I have been living with it but it can be annoying.

Refining search by using directory search first

Just a reminder that you may get a more accurate search by going thru the II directory first; the trick is to check off all those things that are most important in your search like a two bedroom children.
