    Upgrade @ Villa del Palmar

    Recent offer was to move from 2775 points to 3600 points at Cancun (adding 825 points) for $16,834 or $20.40 per point. Or move from 2775 to 5000 Elite Level at Cancun (adding 2225 points) for $36,574 or $16.44 per point. I got with the Sales Manager at Cancun (Jose) and told him that I would...

    Upgrade @ Villa del Palmar

    In June or July, the Club Caribe contracts will no longer work for BOTH Garza AND Villa on new purchases. So, I am trying to build up my points on BOTH systems while I still can. After the split, I won't feel the benefit or need to upgrade. Now or never.

    Upgrade @ Villa del Palmar

    I am getting ready to upgrade my membership before the Villa/Garza split. Should I be aiming to pay $12 per annual point? More or less? As always, thanks for your knowledge!

    New Marriott confirmations

    Who do we complain to and how in order to make our voices heard on this? This isn't good for those of us that rent our units/weeks on the regular.

    Transferring a Marriott deeded week w/ a LOAN?

    I did give the seller the option for him to pay it in full and then I pay him our agreed upon price. Not sure if he has the means or not. But that's one option for sure.

    Transferring a Marriott deeded week w/ a LOAN?

    I could pay it off and buy it outright. Though, the loan would actually be easier for me, as it wouldn't dump my savings down to minimal levels. Only has 14 months/payment left. I guess it's time to call Marriott Title tomorrow.

    Transferring a Marriott deeded week w/ a LOAN?

    Yes. LT will no longer touch a transfer in Hawaii in which ANY $ changes hands. Per their attorney's suggestion. I too had done poor man's in the past. No dice any longer. I was even willing to pay the buyer directly without them touching the funds. Nope. They no longer do it. They are still my...

    Transferring a Marriott deeded week w/ a LOAN?

    Would we need to contact Marriott to take care of this? Secondly, which title/transfer company would be willing to handle such a transfer for a Hawaii deeded week?

    Transferring a Marriott deeded week w/ a LOAN?

    Ok experts, I come here seeking help. I have found a week that I want to purchase. There is still a loan on it through Marriott from the original purchase. 1) Can I just take over the loan? OR will it need to be paid off prior to transfer? 2) LT doesn't do Hawaii any longer if $ changes...

    Marriott Hotel question...

    Well I'm paying cash. Always do for big events. Still have a hard time finding a room anywhere close to the event venue. Just want to learn the tricks of the trade to get in on these so I don't have to stay 20 miles away at an underwhelming property.

    Marriott Hotel question...

    That's what I have seen historically. Sadly. If this is the case (and seems to be so) where does the inventory go? They aren't empty on those dates. Any ideas?

    "Event Weeks" at Marriott Resorts

    Less worried about booking and more concerned about returns on rent far exceeding the MFs. Any historical data on this for those weeks?

    Marriott Hotel question...

    Ever tried to book the closest Marriott to say: the Super Bowl? The Final Four? Mardi Gras? 9 months doesn't work. 11 months beyond day 1 doesn't work. Thus my trying to figure out when inventory is released. :(
  24. Slinger

    Marriott Hotel question...

    Any idea what day of the week they seem to release the new 11th month week? Or is there no rhyme or reason to it? Is it also at 9am EST? Or does that vary too? Thanks so much!!

    Marriott Hotel question...

    Does anyone know when hotel inventory/schedules are released? It's not like MVC in which 365 days out, days are released one day at a time. I can't seem to figure out how they do it. Trying to book a vacation for 2019 in a high demand area. Wanted to get in on the first day if possible...

    Quick 13 month booking question (when?)

    As I suspected. The Marriott owner resource was correct in that March 14, 2018 is my date to call in. Thank you all for confirming for me.

    Quick 13 month booking question (when?)

    Ok let me try this again. My desired check in date is Sunday April 14, 2019. That is the ONLY check in day that resort allows. SUNDAYS. PERIOD. They do NOT allow check ins on any of the 6 other days if the week. So is the website helper correct with a March 14, 2018 call in day or not...
