Has anyone had luck at giving ownership back for minimal costs? Did you deal with Diamond Resorts or Palms Country Club Resort Condo. Assc.?

It think it depends on the week/season you have. I gave mine back for minimal cost a few years back. Loved the resort, but hated Diamond. They always seemed to taint the stay. I bought it on resale on ebay for $1 about 10 years ago and stayed there 4-5 times. Diamond does a nice job maintaining and renovating, but they are terrible at pushy sales tactics. I had a 3 BR lock off fixed week I liked. I wasn't part of the club. They wanted like $20K to move my week into their club. No thanks. Because the maintenance fee's were going sky high and you can rent those on the secondary market for near nothing, I dumped it. Now I have 3 HICV locations each bought for $1 on ebay. More options and they seem better about controlling MF's.
