Aruba Surf - What are the chances of an exchange


Nov 14, 2011

We recently purchased a 2Bdr at the Aruba Surf Club. The previous owners had locked-off the unit and booked back-to-back weeks of Jan 5-12 and 12-19. As we are within the 60 day window we can't change the reservation through Marriott. We were hoping to vacation on back-to-back weeks in March (preferably March break) or even in Feb and are considering joining II try to exchange for this. What are the chances of success? If this is at all possible, what would be the best way to do it? Any thoughts or other suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Also, if we are not successful -what happens to our weeks?
