Puente Vista, where MROP owns 23 units, also had a sizable assessment per unit.
The 'value proposition' for MROP is currently not attractive. The number of MROP weeks for sale on Ebay has increased which I believe to be a sign of 'dumping' by disgruntled owners. Some weeks do not get bids even at $1.
It stands for 'Multi-Resort Ownership Plan'. A mini-system with some units/weeks in about 55 resorts mostly in the West. Managed now by VRI. It has been a nice outfit, but IMO less so in the last couple of years.
Book-Keeping error, new exchange fee, & question on exchg
Just found out that there is a new fee for the second reservation in any one year, $77 I think. The reservation person was good at minimizing the impact.
They also had an error in recording transfers for the now defunct Resorts West merger into MROP and we suddenly found that we had to use one year of annual points by year end rather than by 2009 YE. They had no announcement going out since they just discovered this 2 weeks ago, just happened to call. Solutions were a case by case basis, it seems.
Again the rep was very helpful and with only 80 days left in the year gave me a week at Canyon Villas at Coral Ridge (#A716) outside St George UT for a 3 BR Red week starting Christmas day.
The question I have prior to giving to RCI I wonder why all the other resorts in St George call Xmas week a White week. Should I be concerned about trade power or point paid since the red designation cost 1/3 more point than a white week? Christmas week seemed good to me.
