I see youa re looking for Autumn, so just so I jsut wanted to make sure you know how it works. We own, for example, a week 41, but it is exchangeable any time from mid may to mid november ( ~$60 exchange fee).....So the fee is small ( and as far as I know has never changed since we owned since 1999) and makes it less important what actual week you get, but get the SEASON that includes your week.
I love the super easy exchanges....we have never had a week refused and always gotten it on the first request....and you can easily book multiple weeks and accelerate your membership. Changes...no problem and no fee, just send an email and get new week...you even get a reservation confirmation through the regular Marriott reservation system....
No HOA, but the simplicity of it all, being set up the way it is has just eben fabulous so far....well worth the risk, IMO.
it is an email rpocess that can take a couple days though and it is frustrating that there is not much dialogue, no owners manual, or anything from them, but we have generally been pleased. WE LOVE the private island and low rise and quite little "beach" for our young kids....easy to run back and forth to the room.
We now have to book 2 rooms ( at least) when we travel as our family has grown and the downside is that it is all 1 BR, but ieasy to do with their system.
We have thought about selling ( not soliciting, just sharing and youa re looking for an EOY anyway) since we own just too many timeshares from our days without children...and we have larger units to use... but it is hard to part with. I think it is a very cut little resort...with very small kids, I am not a fan of the big mega Marriotts in Aruba....fighting for beach and pool chairs???....ridiculous....no thanks!
