I have a 3 TPU in my RCI weeks account that is due to expire at the end of June 2020. I found a 4 TPU at Vacation Village in Weston.
Due to Corona Virus the resorts nearby say the pools are closed. Not sure if the pools are open at VV in Weston. If not why is RCI posting units available?
My son lives in the area and we thought of going to visit before the week expires. If the pools and activities are not open. Do you think they would let us have a unit for 3 TPU?
We have been practicing social distancing and would still do it there.
Just curious as to weather it’s worth pursuing?
If anyone knows the status of the resort ?
Thank you! Stay safe and healthy.

Not sure what the status is, but VV Weston is pretty easy for me to get with a VV Extra vacation certificate. Bottom line is a 1 BR partial kitchen is typically always available to me for just an exchange fee. Happy to get one for you in the future if you need one; we'd have to discuss the fee/guest certificate, of course. I don't use those much myself and am happy to help out.

A few in S and VA, a single resort in NC, MD, PA, and UT, plus Jamaica and the Bahamas
RCI allows exchanges even if the pools and activities are not available if the resort is taking exchange guests. I do not know if they would discount further. I think they would say take it or leave it.
