When we were there last August they were starting on the last building, 8B or 9A I think, so I'd imagine its well over and done with by now. Looking at some of the recent youtube construction reviews they only work going on is completing the tower, landscaping and a few finishing touches to the bridge to the new restaurant.

Great cheers. Any particular floor or view you would recommend? We dont want to face a car park ideally and dont want to be near staircases etc.

Sorry, I don't really know, but I think you can look up rooms and views on touring plans. We requested Casitas 4 but were allocated Ranchos 7a at check in, and eventually upgraded to Casitas 2 (courtyard view). It's a lovely resort and we actually liked the look of all the various sections just didn't want to be quite so far from the food court. The trade off was being further away from the feature pool.

It may be different if the tower has amenities and now theyve built the bridge etc now I guess.

Yes, though to be honest what we also liked about the Casitas is that we were away from the tower... I don't care for it all; it's not really in keeping with the resort and it quite literally towers over it. Otherwise, it's a beautiful resort, with stunning grounds and beautifully renovated rooms. I hope you enjoy your stay as much as we did.
