I was just seeing what sort of prices I could get for my January 2008 trip by plugging dates during value season in in December. We were looking to book Poly LVC. Just for fun I looked at what a 2 bedroom villa would cost at the Beach Club Villas for the same dates. I was shocked to find that BCV was only $45 more expensive for my 5 night stay! I know Poly LVC is their most expensive standard room, but I don't understand how a regular hotel room can compete with a 1000+ square foot villa. How come the Beach Club Villas are so much cheaper? Do you lose anything that you would usually get at a typical deluxe resort when staying (I know if you book using points you don't get maid service)?
