    I am a member of RCI and I'm frustrated when trying to read reviews on a property that I'm interested in. How in the world do I get rid of TripAdvisor reviews? I want to hear reviews from RCI members. Is that option still available or has all RCI reviews gone to TripAdvisor?

    On the review page there is a box that says "RCI reviews". Check that box and it will apply a filter to show the RCI reviews only.

    Thanks Katherine, but when I check the RCI Reviews box it takes me right to Trip Advisor reviews. I can't understand why this is happening.

    Weird. I checked it before I posted. I used some random resort in South America and once I filtered out the tripadvisor reviews, it stated that there were no RCI reviews so it seemed to be working on my end. It it happening on all resorts or are you looking at a specific resort?

    I noticed the same thing when searching RCI Extra Vacations the other day. When I go to an available resort and click on Reviews all I get is Trip Advisor reviews, even when I check the box "RCI Member Reviews". I am finding it very frustrating as I prefer to read timeshare owner reviews rather than read about people complaining about no room service or other non-timeshare issues.

    Maybe we should bombard RCI with complaints about their review sections (Haha -like that would make a difference!).

    I found it best just to go to trip advisor for reviews.

    Maybe Wyndham’s top notch programmers will fix RCI bugs someday, without creating new ones hopefully.

    Maybe the tripadvisor reviews are rated higher than their actual RCI timeshare owners reviews. :ponder:

    Is it possible RCI is getting paid by TripAdvisor?

    Anything is possible - I always find it funny when I can't make a reservation I want in my timeshare system(s). But I can go to RCI and sometimes find it.
