Alrighty here's your long-awaited review.
The music choice is splendid, and you really fit all of the graphics very well together to create a nice tropical beach atmosphere. I never thought of using the smw wood to resemble a sort of pier or beach post wood. You combine smb3 and smw ina relatively smooth way, so I commend you for pulling that off. The only exception is you should've kept all of the piranha plants consistent; either have them all in smw or in smb3 form. You initially had me concerned with having a goomba coming out of a block, and if you're to do that I recommend having the goombas in blocks be something that's occurring through the level. I was completely confused by why there was a pipe with koopa shells generating out of it; I saw the purpose to the rainbow koopa shell guarding the yoshi coin (which was a nice touch), but there's no reason to have a pipe you're supposed to enter have koopa shells coming out of it in that area. The overall game play of the level was smooth with some nice backtracking implemented early on. You have a nice flow of difficulty throughout with the smw wood being the main cause with it's good placement. With the sections where you have to jump through the smw wood, you assume the player will at least have a mushroom to get the leaf, but overall this creates a sort of leap of faith scenario with the second row of wood in particular with the gap right after the last block of wood. I recommend either changing that area completely or maybe having the lead available through a bubble so the player is guaranteed to get it. Other than that the level isn't too bad, it's really just a lot of the smaller details throughout that hold this level back.
