An added bonus is the resort's convenient location between the nightlife of Fort Lauderdale and Miami's South Beach.

You'll have to forgive me, as I've never been able to use the timeshare (despite owning it for 12 years, which is why I am trying to give it to someone who will). I assume TPU is the total points per week/unit? I am not an RCI points member, and I haven't been able to successfully look up that number without being a member.

Weeks are now assigned trading power units as opposed to true points. When looking to exchange through RCI, you can see the number of units (TPU's) needed to exchange into each weeks' property. If the week you own has sufficient TPU's, you can exchange,. If not, you have the option of combining weeks (for a fee of course) to give you more TPU's.
