Ask the Timeshare Crusader

Lisa Ann Schrier Our "Ask the Timeshare Crusader" series continues this month with a question from Phyllis:

I have been a timeshare owner for the past 12 years and have been reading with increased dismay the media articles bashing timeshare. Is there anything that can be done to combat this rash of negative media attention?

I'm sure I've read the exact same articles as you, and I won't give them any more press by including links here. This rash of articles has me both worried and upset… Read Lisa's full answer »

Diamond Resorts: Integrity Under Fire

For the past two years many debates have been waged on the RedWeek forums about the integrity of Diamond Resorts International. One owner refers to The CLUB at Diamond Resorts International as "a sham", while others simply want to get out from under their ownership. The discussion is still in full swing and owners have a lot to say! Join in the discussion on the RedWeek Forums and share your thoughts.

Member Review:

"The most beautiful and relaxing timeshare I have ever been in. Great for families - playground on site, beautiful walking around resort, separate TS game room, hotel game room, the front desk even loaned us an Xbox with a couple games for our boys-no charge. Pools were warm and never crowded, Jacuzzi was huge, and there is a steam room in the lady's bathroom. Everything is first rate and the staff fabulous."
