El Conquistador La Vista and parking

We are booking at the El Con, probably a Garden View, and I think we should ask for the La Vista building, because we tend to spend most of our time off-site, touring or eating, and it is important to us to be close to the self-parking. Las Olas also offers Garden View rooms, but it looks like we would have a funicular ride (or a hike) between the car and the room every time. If we should upgrade to an ocean view, I am guessing that we would still want to be in Las Vista, as La Marina would also involve a funicular ride, and Las Brisas would be a longer walk from the parking lot than Las Vista? I don't expect to end up in the Casitas, but do they have their own convenient self-parking? Is there anything good or bad that I should know about the Las Vista building? Thanks.

Last time we were there we were in the las vista room, in the corner next to the main entrance. The patio was large and the view of the golf course and mountains was fine. But nothing like the ocean views. The self serve parking area is down the hill, so nothing is without a walk. The Casitas have there own parking spaces that are free of charge. It's a big resort. You'll either be waking to the pool area, the funicular or just around the grounds. I like the Las Brisas southern facing ocean view rooms. We head to the private island a lot and that put us close to the funicular. Plus there (was) a row of shops on the ground floor outside. Self parking can be a real pain on weekends. That is finding a place to park. The casino gets real busy and there are lots of guests in the evenings. Consider paying the extra for Valet.

Thank you. Any sense of whether the week after Easter is typically busy? Is August the worst month, in terms of rain and flies? Any predictable seasonal problems at any other time of the year?
