The following resorts all have review awards for them, so I guess I should take notes during my trip. But I figured I would ask if there is anything specific that anyone wants some info on.

I am visiting the following:
Wyndham - Flagstaff
Worldmark - St George and Anaheim (Dolphins Cove booked via WM)
Margaritaville - Desert Blue
HGVC - Trump

Glad your enjoying Worldmark. Vegas strip is OK but take a ride up to Redrock Canyon. Some great hiking within a 1/2 hour drive of Vegas. Grand Desert would of been my choice over Desert Blue.

For Wyndham I have stayed at GD about a 6 or 7 times, was looking for something new. There were a bunch of the previous Shell options originally out there but my traveling companions voted on Margaritaville, besides it was the only one available in a 3 BR unit.

For HGVC I've stayed at Elara (my first choice but wasn't available for my dates), I've also stayed at all the rest (Flamingo, Paradise, Boulevard,) except for Trump. Trump was the only one available so I figured, I might as well complete the options and try them all.

I also own at HICV Desert Club for about 20 years now, and have not once stayed there.

We just got home from Desert Blue - our go-to these days. We like the pools and the non-strip vibe.

Not much in easy walking distance though. Recommend the surprisingly good
Polaris Street Cafe for breakfast and Voodoo Steak on the 50th floor next door
at the Rio.
