With resort construction, and surrounding home construction, what location would you request at the resort? Is there a way to submit a request before check-in? Any chance to get a renovated unit?

I fully understand that we have no priority as exchangers, but I hope that Oct. is off-season enough to have a little more flexibility than high season. I'm the ultimate optimist! ;)

This is a HVC resort, therefore moving your thread to HVC.

HVC: The Point at Poipu, 3 deeded weeks, 1 of which is in The Club.
We like buildings 8 or 9. The parking is close and they're close to the pool (and pool bar). They're also not affected by the new construction. The only disadvantage is that they're a long walk to the adult hot tub. Don't count on much. Owners make their room requests a long time in advance, and even in the off season, the resort is usually near capacity. If you'll be using the 2nd bedroom, ask that you don't get an elbow room (one on the corner that wraps around). The 2nd bedroom has a window that faces the hallway, and does not have AC. Send your request to: ThePointatPoipu@diamondresorts.com Here's the building layout.

Remodeling is going slowly and you're not likely to get one of the rooms. Here's some pictures of the resort. Have a great trip!

On our first stay we were on the 3rd Floor in BLDG 10. We were able to see the Whales over the Buildings near the Ocean. But also a long walk to the Spa (Adult) to the left side of the Map.

The construction is affecting buildings 2, 3, 4, 5, and part of 6, reference the map above. The "Updates from the Point at Poipu" link above will give you a good idea of what things are like. artringwald's post of View from the cliff is showing buildings 6 (on the left) through to building 9 (on the right). They are unaffected by the construction. I don't know what things are like since we were there end of January into February, but construction was progressing slowly so I wouldn't expect a big change. Overall you can still have a great time at the Point.
