For over 20 years, the Los Olas Wine & Food Festival has taken place to benefit the American Lung Association. This year is no different. As part of this Owner Event package, you’ll also receive the VIP treatment. This Exclusive Owner Event kicks off with check-in and a private cocktail reception at the W Fort Lauderdale hotel. The next day, you’ll be treated to breakfast on a 137-foot yacht while cruising along Florida’s beautiful Intracoastal Waterway. Are you kidding me? A 137-foot yacht?? But that’s just the beginning! You’ll receive exclusive access to a private VIP hospitality tent where you can relax and enjoy your food and beverage discoveries. Transportation from your accommodations to the festival will be provided.
This is actually a really good value for your points. It takes 3300 Destination Points for 5 days 4 nights at the W Fort Lauderdale on November 17-21, 2021. It’s longer than most Owner Events, and that gives you more time to play and eat and laugh! The retail value is a whopping $4108 — so the value of this event is very good. I’m guessing this will book up fast, so don’t delay reserving your spot before they’re gone.
Located on a half-mile of private beach, The Breakers Palm Beach offers luxury accommodations amid carefully landscaped grounds. If you want luxurious surroundings, this resort has it all! After checking in, you will enjoy a dinner in the Gold Room — famous in and of itself. The next day, you will enjoy a taste of everything this scenic coastal town has to offer, from exciting street art to hidden courtyards and delicious local cuisine. You’ll visit five top locally owned restaurants and meet the masters behind the menus.
This Owner Event has been offered before and sells out fairly quickly. But if you are looking for VALUE — this isn’t on the that list. It takes 4200 Destination Points for 4 days and 3 nights on May 9-12, 2022. You must be 21 years old to attend this event. The retail value is only $1947 — not a high amount for the 4200 points it takes to reserve your package.
As with all the Owner Events, you are required to attend a 90-minute sales presentation. And make sure you understand the cancellation policy — it is different for these events than for regular MVC reservations. I explain the cancellation policy for Owner Events in this post, if you want to review it. https://maxingmarriott.com/2021/07/09/what-you-need-to-know-about-owners-events-and-which-are-the-best-value-for-your-points/ .
