What ever happened to Sandals Ochi Beach formerly Ciboney. I use to see exchanges from time to time in RCI but have not seen one in a long long time.
Are they not affiliated with RCI anymore?

The resort is still in the RCI directory. DH would love to go back there. I haven’t seen any availability. Not even studio units. I tried to buy one a while back but Sandals exercised ROFR.

Still around. We went a couple of years ago. Rented from an owner.

A few in S and VA, a single resort in NC, MD, PA, and UT, plus Jamaica and the Bahamas
rci offers very low tpu's, so there is very little incentive to deposit. I gave mine to my son when he turned 21 last year and he plans on using it or renting it out.
