I am trying to find the best way to use point toward a family vacation in June 2012. We are a family of 5 with young kids and a teen. Last year we booked a condo at Legend's Edge in PCB and covered it with points but I can't find anything now.
The best value on point conversion is one of the hotel/air packages. But if you are looking simply for accommodations, I suggest trying the "Vacation Planner" using navigation on the main Marriott site: EXPLORE & PLAN > Vacation Planner (https://www.marriott.com/explore-and-plan/vacationplanner.mi). Start with the number of nights you wish to stay (right column) and the planner will use your points balance to limit your choices.
