Reality Check

Even at these low reward night rates, the better value may simply be paying cash for some of these hotels, especially Mexico and Colombia.

Crowne Plaza Acapulco is 10,000 points per night during this sale. You can book the hotel for $56.16 all-in on a prepaid rate for a King partial view. A paid stay earns points and promotion credit.

Even better at this hotel is the King bed Bahia Suite Oceanfront for $72.58 advance purchase rate. The suite is not bookable as a reward night.

Crowne Plaza Acapulco

Holiday Inn Resort Aruba is a good value on reward nights with rates over $200 per night after tax.
