I believe the standard award is not OWB but probably a garden villa of sorts.

I would check Flyertalk as don’t think many people have been to the LM. I can ask someone I know who’s there’s currently and get back to you!

It’s not OWB. Easily found on the LM website is the description of the room:

“Recently renovated and located at the beginning of the pontoon, this exquisite bungalow with no direct access to the water offers great views over the main island of Bora Bora and the lagoon.”

It has access to the beach though... from what I hear they are very upgrade friendly if not at full occupancy.

Booked the TN mass availability last week (some of which is still around actually).

Since we have done BOB before, am I crazy to consider mixing BOB with other islands (or skipping  it altogether :o)?

Skip and do other islands IMHO.

While researching, seeing ads, etc. I saw bits of other islands and thought they were beautiful too and worth a visit. However, the most important thing to me was the resort, and points resorts are scarce on the other islands. Diving and other water sports aren't very important to me, and I believe BOB has more options for those (unsure if the quality of diving/snorkeling is better in BOB or the same as other islands), so if those are important to you, you may want to stay in BOB.

A+ is cash, I'm not sure why people here think that they're getting their vacation for free when they use the points. You're using money that you could have used for anything, for a vacation. Nothing wrong with that, just realize what it is.

Lol, didn't realize you were such a n00b ;)
You are repeating the same argument that I always made with @yehuda back in the day.
