It's a snowy day so I finally got around to transcribing the view designations at WKORV-N as listed in my Owner's manual. I thought it would help people who are buying resale to double check the view that they are buying. Also, if we are enterprising, maybe someone can cross reference this with Denise's map to figure out how Starwood has labeled their villas.

For instance, here's my theory:

building 5

Looks like 5x01 starts at the lower right of the building (in front of the pool) and then the numbers increase as you get closer to the ocean. 5x11 through 5x16 would get the closest ocean view.

5x17 through 5x24 would be the villas facing the pool in between WKORV and WKROV-N.

I may be off by one unit but I'm pretty sure that the unit across the front of Bldg 5 are (from S to N) 5x05 & 06, 5x07 & 08, 5x09 & 10. The highest numbers are where bldg 5 meets bldg 6 (by the pool).

Very interesting - I wish I paid more attention when we walked over to check it out last December.

Looks as if there are 89 OF 2Bd LOs at WKORVN
WKORV has 24 Dlx and 12 Prem OF 2Bd LOs (36 total) - quite a difference.

Wow... North has a lot of units. Alot more than WKORV. When we visited WKORV-N in November the place was dead. So, I'm assuming not all the units were open yet. When do all the units open up? Do they realistically have enough pool space for all those units? Anyone going there this summer....

Everything should be built now. I think there's 2 pools in the center of the north property and then one between the north and south developments. Well, at least that's what the drawing indicated.

I'm going to be there in July '08. Of course I'll post a report at that time.

Yes... all the buildings were up when I went in November but some were boarded up as it looked like they were still working on the interior parts. So, my guess was that they weren't at full occupancy.

I saw the 2 pools in the center that you are talking about. I have to warn you it is alot like the Sheraton pool but no lazy river. Alot of up and down with stairs and meandering trails. It was very pretty but kinda narrow in spots. I even think the pool at WKORV is too small. I just don't think they made big enough pools for either resort but it might be I'm expecting Disney.

The Pirate Ship in between the 2 resorts wouldn't really be a pool for adults. It is very small even for kids.

I swear at check-in they inidcated that WKORV-N had an adult only pool but I never saw any signs indicating that. I never asked either.

Would there be one more pool even further North on the other side of the buildings? That area was boarded up when I was there in November so, I was hoping they put another pool in. It will definitely be crowded during peak season. Thank goodness for the ocean.

Can't wait to hear your report. I'll be trying out the Westin Princeville resort.

Here at WKORV now, the Pirate pool is very nice for little ones. Glad it is not too big, with lots of kids I worry about the little ones being pushed around. The new side - North- grounds are very nice, lots of fish ponds, bridges, flowers, etc I like the locations of the 2 restuarants and that the buildings are not just straight but more angled - have not been through the villas

Main pool temperature at the WKOrv is very pleasant, just enough heat to take the chill off on entering. No problems with overcrowding at the pool, plenty of chairs.

Actually acc to my records, WKORV has 280 units and WKORV-N has 258. This is based on my WKORV-N docs, which admittedly may not be accurate. Though you'd think they'd have the number of units correct. Maybe it just seems bigger....?

I'm surprised because it looks like the North has more buildings and it did appear bigger. I can see why maybe WKORV appears smaller because you really don't see really see building 4 when you are in the U-shaped area.

Glad you are having fun!!! I'd definitely wouldn't expect crowding this time of the year. When we went Thanksgiving week it wasn't as crowded as it was in the summer. In the summer, every single chair is spoken for by 9 am. Unfortunately, I'm stuck traveling during peak season so, I've actually gotten use to it.

I requested, and received, a layout of WKORVN including room numbers. However, it is a .pdf file. Is it possible to post .pdf's in these comments? If so, how do I do it?

When I asked for one they said they didn't have any. Thanks for following up on this and posting it for us via DeniseL.

Thanks so much for the map, Denise and Mon2rey.

My deed says that I own 5515/16, which I know as a float owner means nothing except for the fact that it's coded as ocean front. But let me tell you, if I was put in 5515/16 and have them call that Ocean FRONT, I would not be happy. Looking at another building is not ocean front, IMO. In fact, It's clearly an ocean VIEW because your direct line of vision is another building.

Why do I torment myself like this?

A little bit off topic, but I just wondered if anyone knows when the spa and gym are due to open at N.

Thanks,

Thanks much. I've never been in a spa in my life, but I figured that I should ask for my better half.

I believe the exercise room is shared with WKORV. If so, it is located in the lower level of building 2, the building next to WKORV-N.
