Default Looking to buy

Can anyone tell me what kind of view from the towers. Someone stated with the new Villas you have to be high up, or you just see the roof of the Villas. Anyone know how high up. Thanks for any help.

I have no idea what floor you need to be on in the tower to see beyond the new buildings but don't forget that half the rooms face in the other direction. The sunrise side faces the new buildings and Palm Beach. The sunset side is primarily ocean view with no obstructions.

I do recall someone complaining years ago that the garden units interfered with the view from their studio unit. (studios are at the front) I believe they were on the 5th floor. We've changed units several times & are currently on the 7th floor with a sunset view. We've never been on the other side because I hate the early morning sun waking me up!

Thanks for your help. Divi does not do a great job on the web showing site or location layout.

Overall, I think Divi does a decent job with their timeshares but the communication is horrendous. In many cases, it's either non existent or grossly inaccurate. You'll get more, & better, information here than you will on the Divi website.

All units to the left of center (facing the ocean) in the Tower don't even know the new buildings are there (no obstruction of the view). We ahve a unit on the 7th floor and can look down over top of the Villas and see to top of the bar out front. We have basically no obstruction of view of the beach that being further up in the Tower would resolve and the roof of the Villas is not that obtrusive.
