spent 3 nights there in mid January on long weekend using marriott owner rental discount (about $100/night), stayed in one of the most recently-renovated bldgs, sea marsh, overlooking pool (second-best bldg, imho).
looked very nice, smelled new, typical high quality.... the "new-look" curtains were alternating wide horizontal stripes in varying shades of blue----trying to appear more contemporary---- and we didn't think the colors matched the rest of the villa so well, but it was nevertheless attractive and fresh-looking. new carpet, new large rounded sectional sofa, new pair of small square leather-top ottomans (tops lift up and can flip as wooden coffee table top).
Personally i didn't care for those curtains, but that's the least of my worries when i'm at a resort, so i'll give my own review a "big whoop" as to its importance or relevance.....
at least it was different, and frankly over the last decade, a lot of the designer fabrics and curtains and overall "look" were beginning to all appear quite similar at all the marriott resorts. always beautiful, but as marriott owners, you all know what i mean.
it was our first time staying there at SW, and we enjoyed it. own at Grande Ocean and Barony. love the off-seaon at HH.....luckily we're close enough to go very often.
