    I know...a subjective question as beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

    In your opinion, which timeshare have you stayed in where the views are so beautiful it just stands out from any other place you have stayed?

    My favourite is still Maui Ocean Club because the sunsets are so beautiful. I would rather watch the sunset on my balcony then do anything else.

    We just stayed in an oceanfront unit at Morritt’s Tortuga Club. The view was gorgeous.

    I always love our view at the Pono Kai on the east side of Kauai. It never disappoints. I love the sunrises. I really enjoy the people watching with everyone on the coastal path.

    So far my favorite view is from a 1 BR we had at Divi Little Bay Resort on St. Maarten. The room was at the far end of the complex. It over looked an infinity pool that had a view of the Caribbean. If you look closely at the picture you can see a difference in the water's surface in close to the fence. That closer water is the infinity pool.

    Westin Laguanamar in Cancun. I think there are very few timeshares with 90% of the condos that have oceanviews. The color of the ocean is to die for and it changes every hour of the day, it is hard to stop looking at it.

    Agree 100%. Lagunamar is the best.

    Hands down the Hanalei Bay Resort on Kauai. IMHO there is lots of places with ocean views but the Hanalei Bay Resort view has the bay, mountains, surf, gardens and ocean and when the sun hits it just right it is breathtaking.

    I would put Maui Ocean Club first and Lagunamar a close second. Both are amazing views.

    Best regards.

    I'm sitting on our lanai at HBR right now and I agree. I'll try to upload a pic later. Our view is spectacular.

    The very best views that I have experienced would be from a Tradewinds catamaran. 360 degrees of gorgeous.

    7107/8, looks like a similar view but we're on the 1st floor so we have a bit more shrubbery. I'm having trouble uploading photos so I'll try later when we're closer to a cell tower. We've stayed here once before. This may be the most beautiful resort campus of anywhere we have ever stayed, timeshare or hotel.

    Love the sunrises and just the general ocean view from our unit at Morritts Tortuga Club where we spend part of each winter. It’s our favorite timeshare.

    I'm pretty partial to the views looking south from Hyatt Highlands Inn on the rocky Pacific Coast near Pebble Beach in Carmel Highlands, California.

    We love the Point at Poipu because it's one of the few places you can watch both the sunrise and the sunset over the water, including frequent green flashes.

    We have an awesome view of Smugglers Notch from
    our deck there (and also from our pool.) Only thing is the trees they planted (why I don’t know) have grown over these past 20 years and starting to obstruct it.:(

    Our first ever RCI trade was The Shearwater with a full water view off the Northern coast of Kauai. It's now a Wyndham. We thought we'd died and gone to heaven!

    Our first trade to Kauai was to shearwater and I almost didn't take it because of the no air conditioning. We've stayed at most of the north shore timeshares: Shearwater, Hanalei Bay, Bali Hai, Ka 'Eo Kai, The Westin and the cliffs.

    Hanalei bay is our favorite, followed by shearwater, and then the cliffs. We didn't care for the westin or the other wyndhams

    We had just started timesharing...2000? Maybe 1999? Traded a studio at Lodge Alley Inn in CHS for a two bedroom Shearwater! Those days have passed. We could never get that trade now. The no A/C was a bit of a problem at first but not for long.

    Sorry, tried to delete second photo and leave one of them. Obviously, I wasn’t successful.
