    Cancun Hyatt and dolphins

    Any Hyatt owners know of this? Has anyone visited? Just looking for your thoughts. I personally do not participate in dolphin excursion. I do know if one place in Roatan called Anthony’s Key Resort, where the dolphins swim with divers and can actually come and go as they please (if they leave...

    EBay poll...Private listings

    I have never understood why some sellers use private eBay listings (where you can not see, or even figure out, other bidding action). I have heard sellers say it protects the bidder privacy but don't buy that given the bidder name scramble. I have heard buyers say it is done to allow fake bids...

    II account if you own an unenrolled Marriott Week and a Hyatt Week

    Our portfolio includes 2 enrolled weeks and 1 unenrolled post-2010 week. I noticed that Hyatt has some nice locations where there are no Marriott MVC's. I also learned that resale Hyatt weeks can internally exchange. My question is can a resale Hyatt week and my unenrolled Marriott week be...

    Do HRC Exchanges Get Priority In II?

    First, I fully subscribe to the TUG mantra: "How can you tell when a retail timeshare salesperson is lying? When his/her lips are moving." That said, I was in a Hyatt owner's update a couple of months ago and the topic turned to exchanges. The sales weasel said that because HRC is now owned by...

    Cancel Hyatt after points are expired

    So, I have a two night Hyatt timeshare reservation that I can't use in Carmel. I don't want to pay 50 some dollars to cancel because the points will be worthless. It is past the LCUP time for those points. However, since it is a split week, there is supposed to be a $35 charge at checkin...

    Hyatt Coconut Plantation

    Today I had a meeting with the sales manager of the Coconut Plantation property. I have stayed there as a guest for many years. I have also sat through two sales presentations but never had the desire to go any further. I had a few things I wanted to cover. The first was to see what their...

    Hyatt Kaanapali: Beach with good snorkeling?

    Going to Maui for an extended weekend at the end of Feb and staying at Hyatt Residence Club for two of the nights. Is the beach in front of the resort decent for snorkeling, or do we have to drive to Black Rock Beach at Sheraton to do so? I guess we were very spoiled by the great snorkeling in...

    Booking Hyatt with points

    Hi everyone. I'm looking for some advice! Next year is the first year that I can't use my 2/2 week at the Hyatt Sunset Harbor. It's only worth 1300 points, so I understand my options are limited. Does anyone have any advice when performing a search on the Hyatt Residence Club site? I've been...
