Can Interval do a bulk withdrawal?

    We are going soon to Westin Lagunamar and i have been monitoring both getaways and exchanges for some friends.

    There was a decent number of weeks both getaways and exchanges in October, November and early December 2018

    The getaways virtually disappeared for this year (one studio left in November). Could they have all been booked in the last couple of days? Maybe but not likely since they had been sitting there for a while, low season in Cancun.
    Some getaways appeared from end March of 2019, but much more expensive. A studio on March 30th is $1197
    The same with exchanges, only studios available April-June 2019. There were several available for this year just a couple of days ago.

    The sudden change in inventory does not appear to be done by members booking the resort overnight. Can Interval (or Vistana) just take back inventory?
    The pool renovation at Lagunamar in going to be finished in few days and that was suppressing some demand. Seaweeds are gone from what was reported. Also, capacity in parts of Florida has been affected by hurricane Michael and some tourists are probably looking for alternatives.

    I think what they do is move that inventory to other avenues to try to unload it. I know that II owns CondoDirect.com, but don't see any Lagunamar weeks sitting out there. I don't really have any other explanation for it.

    I agree with Dioxide's observation about moving it around after depositing briefly into open availability. Sometimes its still there and if you set up an ongoing request it will match even though you can no longer see it. Sometimes it is gone. I have seen shell bulk hawaii deposits disappear like that before. I have seen bulk Hyatt deposits disappear and re-appear as Getaways only.
