Does Royal Aloha Vacation Club (RAVC) have the lowest maintenance fees for Hawaii?

    I have been an owner of RAVC for almost ten years. Currently, the annual maintenance fees for a one bedroom are $698 and for a two bedroom are $850. I know that RAVC has non-Hawaii locations, but the majority of the club's units are in three Hawaii locations (Waikiki, Maui, and Kona) and Hawaii is the main reason most people purchase the timeshare club. I've stayed at the Kona location and while it is not luxurious, my family enjoyed itself and we plan to stay again soon. However, I mostly use my RAVC interval for exchanging because I find it to be a great trader for the value.

    Does RAVC have the lowest maintenance fees for a Hawaii-based timeshare? It seems to me, the owners at fixed Hawaii resorts have maintenance fees that are double my annual fees or more. Granted, the resorts are more luxurious and I know some are paying for an ocean view, but I'm wondering whose fault it is that the fees are so exorbitant? For three years, RAVC had no increase in their annual fees at all, which made me extremely happy as an owner.

    I have no idea. It's tough to compare different resorts. Most resorts on Oahu are Wyndham, Hilton and Marriott, even Disney. Most have high fees, but they are different types of resorts.

    So how would a person make a comparison. Maybe you could check listings for Imperial, managed by Hawaiian Timeshare Exchange. That might give you an idea for apples-to-apples comparison.

    No Waikiki. Banyan less than $600.

    Check the Kuhio Banyan Club and Lifetime in Hawaii. I think both are around $500. Both are in Waikiki.
