    my guess is that you will be at the renaissance marina tower.
    when we do our timeshare trades using Interval, we stay at the Renaissance ocean suites. they are the timeshare units.

    using priceline, we have gotten renaissance marina tower.

    the ren marina tower is a lovely property, beautiful infinity pool.
    exquisite decor.

    you got a very good deal, even including the tax and fee.

    $102 per night is your average and that is awesome.

    I don't know that I would call the decor "exquisite" according to alot of the reviews I've read on Trip Advisor (especially the Marina Tower). Most seem to think the rooms are dated and are in need of renovation. But for the price you paid, it's a good value. I would definitely never pay full price to stay there.

    and all opinions are welcome.

    the rooms at the marina tower imo are not dated.
    the furniture is lovely as are the bedding and drapes.

    the decor in the pool area at the infinity pool area imo is exquisite.......or maybe a better word, pretty and very decorative.

    now, the ocean suites, that is a whole different opinion. i find the rooms very dated and tired. the pool area is in need of much repair and the lounges uncomfortable.....again, my opinion. would we stay there again?
    yes!

    we have stayed at the ocean suites a few times over the past few years and the marina tower, we spent 1 night there in august 2011 and previously numerous nights pre and post timeshare using priceline.

    I am sure being a Priceline bidder we will be put in the Marina Tower. Looks like it was redone in early 2000 though. We really don't spend alot of time in room. This looks much nicer than the MVC we were looking at for $95. After staying at the Aruba House in June it would be hard to find anything to compare to it.

    The private Island sounds good also.

    I stayed at the Marina last summer when my father and I came down for a couple days. Our room was not dated at all and very clean. It was a little on the small side, but we didn't spend a ton of time there.
