Just wondering if MVCI stays/nights still count towards elite status. Our stay in Marbella Beach last year was credited, but our recent Grande Vista stay (in September) has not posted. Any feedback is appreciated!

As long as you charged expenses such as restaurant, drinks etc, to your room you will get credit for seven day stay even if you check out early. If you didn't charge anything to the room you will not get any credit for the stay.

I was at OP in West Palm beach at the end of August for six nights checking out I day early. I charged purchases at mini mart and at pool bar to my room and recived credit for seven night stay.:hi:

YMMV

Stay at resorts are not guaranteed to post.
Some resorts do if as some say you make a purchase, but some do not.
If you are short stays at the end of the year (and remember elite status is a rolling 12 month window) then I would call up the elite CS line and explain your situation.

We recently stayed at Grande Ocean in Hilton Head and charged bicycle rental to our room and did not receive credit for the stay. I guess, as stated before, it does vary by resort and whether the stay is a trade or an owned week. Too bad it is not more consistent.

Your stays at your home resort should count, effective July 1 of this year. See the first post in this linked thread for more info. You might get lucky on other stays, but don't count on credit.
