I can't tell you how irritating it is to listen to the "no black out dates" adds - and attempt to use rewards for the first time since the switch and I get this!

    Your message is a bit cryptic, but understandable. 

    Using the dates, April 10 to 17, in a Paid scenario, Find & Reserve shows 44 properties available including Grande Vista.  But, in a Points scenario for the same dates, Find & Reserve shows only 24 properties and Grande Vista is excluded. 

     

    Not all brands and properties participate in the 'No Blackout Dates' policy.*  Grande Vista is part of the Marriott Vacation Club brand and not listed.  The club does have villas available for rent using points but they are limited because it is a timeshare ownership resort not a full service hotel. 

     

    You are in good company.  Marriott could do a better job listing which brands do not participate upfront so as not to mislead and disservice the business and leisure travel community.

     

    * Participating brands include Marriott® Hotels & Resorts, JW Marriott® Hotels & Resorts, Renaissance® Hotels & Resorts, Courtyard by Marriott®, Residence Inn by Marriott®, Fairfield Inn by Marriott®, TownePlace Suites by Marriott®, and SpringHill Suites by Marriott®.
