Have a reservation at WMH in March. It was for our 2 bedroom and the other couple had to pull out. So I called Starwood and deposited the small half with Interval.

Checked around for the heck of it and in looking at possible destinations for the Fall 2012, found I could draw a 2 bedroom at Westin Lagunamar in Cancun in mid-October. Amazing! Grabbed it and started to look for flights from Newark, NJ to Cancun. No economy flights available but two First Class seats there so I grabbed them too!

Can't say I would buy my timeshares all over again, but I have done pretty well - this one seems like a home run!

Congrats! I also have been very pleased with how my Starwood units have traded in Interval. It can always change, but for now, it's great!
