Having watched it, it looks nice but I have to say I am a little underwhelmed. Lobby is smaller than expected, pools look OK but nothing special, cafe looks like a Starbucks, corridors nice, some nice touches, lady doing the walkthrough is embarrassingly over the top.
Also it is kind of strange having this Euro/ French themed resort looking onto Caribbean Beach.
I dont think its the next Grand Floridian, Beach Club or Boardwalk to be honest, but its nice. It does kind of resemble any modern nice hotel.
The 3 bed grand villa is amazing (although the decor isnt that much better than the new SSR) but huge points to stay there. Best thing about the resort are the rooms which are great.

I was expecting more to be honest. The grounds look lovely though. Ive been toying with staying here or Beach club for 2021. (Im not DVC)

Ooof that Tangled mural is just stunning.

Disappointed in the pool Ive got to say.

Love the rooms though, was very tempted to have our stay there next November in a two bed as the layout is spot on for our party, but Im going to save the points and go for OKW instead. Interested to hear the feedback once people actually stay there.

Hmmm, I'm meant to be staying here for 2 weeks next year. Wondering if I should now shorten it and then move to the Poly.

It's nice but I'm just not sure I'm going to love it, not sure I'm in love with the theming. I like to feel like I've been transported to somewhere far away and not somewhere I can visit on my doorstep. I think the French music would get on my nerves too

The murals are a wonderful touch.

Ive been watching more videos and the pools are the most disappointing thing for me - quite basic.
DVD needed to blow this out of the park with the resale restrictions, not sure they have. Grand Destino Tower, technically a moderate (a v nice one) seems more luxurious to me?
The rooms are great no doubt about it.
Its v nice, but just not as nice as Id been expecting- maybe expecting too much.
Ill reserve judgment though until Ive looked around. Often the atmosphere makes the resort, and that doesnt come across on video.
We are doing a rare studio stay for 4 nights in summer (may need more points, that VGC 1 bed booking is killing me) and it was a toss up between Riviera and Poly. Poly is now looking the favourite as weve never stayed and this is our only studio stay for the foreseeable future.
