Hi everyone,

I just wanted to see what the likelihood of success would be to trade a 1-BR Platinum at the Aruba Ocean Club for a 2-BR Gold at either the Ocean or Surf Club. Is this a pipe dream? Or is it likely to be very easy?

Thank you in advance for any response!

my advice would be to keep checking II website and if its on there you can grab it..as far as i know that is the only to get a bigger unit no matter what the season is.

It also depends on the time of year. If I were you, I would put in a request for a 1bdrm and if you get confirmation, you can continue to watch for a 2bdrm and re-trade.

2bdrms are easy to come by in Sept, Oct and Nov. Marriott will frequently do bulk bank for these Gold months.

Are there particular Gold weeks taht you are trying to obtain?

Thanks for the responses!

I am actually considering buying a 1-BR Platinum because I will be getting married soon and the Platinum would be the best for me and my fiancee for a few years (since we'd rather use the vacation as a break during the winter). However, before I take that plunge, I wanted to cover my bases since, in several years when we potentially have children, a vacation during the summer would make more sense when we have school schedules to deal with. So the trade I would try to make would probably be from a 1-BR Platinum to a 2-BR in June, July, or August.
