Marriott grand vista
even though silver has more weeks?
You'll get Ocean Front (that's what a rep told me a couple of years ago). Congrats!I was able to use the Florida Club to get 2 weeks in mid January and the reservations came back Ocean Front. Should I get excited about this or just prepare for something other than that? I've never had Ocean Front here (only the ones where you look out that corner window and see some ocean). Which is perfectly OK.
You could request the "downgrade". They may honor it, but no guarantees. From what I understand, they honor the view/unit that was deposited by the original owner. Did you add EPlus or is this traded using a Marriott week where you paid $0 exchange fee? If so, you can try searching for the same week in II and do a retrade. Chances are it would be an Oceanside unit.I got a 2 bedroom OF as an II exchange. Must be the 2 bedroom side of the 3 bedroom unit. Looks like the 2nd bedroom has 2 twin beds. That's a nightmare with my elderly parents . I'm willing to take a parking lot view for 2 king beds. Do they really honor the II codes? Does anyone have an email address for the room controller ?

We were there last week too and also in Sailfish. I agree the construction really wasn't an issue. Go to the beach and you won't even know construction is happening.I was there last week. Stayed in Sailfish with refurbished units. We could see new windows being installed in Dolphin. Construction didn't bother us.
We were in the Sailfish building in a 3 bedrooms villa after a Southern Caribbean cruise, a few years ago. All I can say and remember it was awesome.Your view orientation will be different depending on what building you’re in.
Sailfish- 2 bedrooms are on Northeast corner of building so your view will be directed East and North.
This is the same for Cobia and Pompano.
Obviously, it’s just the opposite for the 3 bedrooms.
Dolphin is flipped with the tier of 2 bedrooms being on the Southeast corner so your view is primarily directed south and east so you can watch more of the boat traffic as it comes out of the inlet.
Kingfish is another story. 3 bedrooms face East, 2 bedrooms are on Southeast corner and the inlet side. I love sitting on those balconies and watching the boat traffic. Some say those aren’t oceanfront (in their opinion) but I think they have great beachfront view as they look all the way down the coast to Palm Beach. Nice sunset views.
In January this will make a difference with how much sun you get on the balcony as it is rising more in the Southern Hemisphere. Wind on the balcony is a flip of the coin because in Florida storms can come either from North or South.
