I am trying to understand the differences at star island and if its better to own pints or a fixed week. is there a forum where I can have specific questions answered? Is star island all owned by wyndham and if so how do you know whether it is part of thw wyndham group of resorts and can exchanges be done via wyndham fair share or II or rci. I'm very confused.

Could be wrong. But I believe it used to have 2 different resort groups (Celebrate and Wyndham) that manage that resort. Wyndham only own parts of it.

I also believe it is deposit to II, and some units does converted to the Wyndham point system, but some does not.

But I did not own there,. so could be wrong.,
