Having stayed at several of the Disney properties, we chose the Beach Club Villas because I was running in the Princess Half Marathon starting outside of Epcot. We rented the points though a DVC rental company, but we still paid quite a bit when compared to if we had stayed at a Value Resort.
Some of the things we liked about Beach Club Villas- access to Beach Club pool, located between Epcot and Hollywood Studios (and monorail access to Magic Kingdom through Epcot) we could pretty much avoid bus transportation unless going to Downtown Disney or Animal Kingdom. Also liked the kitchenette, and balcony. It was nice to make breakfast and eat outside on our balcony before heading out to the parks.
Some things we didn't like- lowest ranked room view put us against the access road that has a lot of traffic. Also, the 10K run started and ended at Epcot, with entertainment quite loud outside our room starting at 5AM on Sat morning. Hallways were freezing cold, especially the one outside our room 450- I called it the Arctic hallway.
Overall, not sure if Beach Club was worth the money except for the location. The next level room (pool view I think) was about $80 more a night, outside our budget. I think I will try to get Boardwalk next time, but it's a bit farther from Epcot, and does not have as many DVC Villa rooms.
