How Does a Marriott Vacation Club Timeshare Work?

Timeshare owners that buy into Marriott Vacation Club can return every year to their favorite vacation spots. Owners can book a suite at any Marriott destination for a week of unparalleled adventure and luxury. Buyers receive a deeded real estate interest that lets them vacation annually or biennially (every other year).

Depending on the timeshare package, or the number of points they are allotted, guests can book a studio suite or a one-, two- or three-bedroom unit. Timeshares are purchased according to seasons, which are divided into levels of popularity.

Typically the seasons are labeled as Platinum, Platinum Plus, Gold, Silver, and Bronze. A “Platinum Plus” season would generally be reserved for major holidays such as Christmas, New Years, and Presidents week.

Some resorts are in higher demand than others. That is why it is so important to check the resort calendar for details. Owners may reserve their vacation up to twelve months ahead when utilizing their home resort. This is a great way to ensure availability.

Why should I buy a timeshare and how does it work?

A timeshare is an arrangement whereby property is owned by several joint owners. A timeshare acts as a prepaid vacation. As an owner, you have the right to use the property for a certain amount of time every year. This is advantageous to those who plan an annual vacation. A typical timeshare usage is broken up into a number of weeks. Others offer the flexibility of a floating week or timeshare points as a way of reserving vacations at a Marriott resort.

What are Platinum, Gold, Silver and Bronze Seasons?

This is Marriott’s way of ranking the demand of certain destinations and certain times of the year. Platinum is, of course, the most desirable season, while Gold are also in high demand, silver and bronze can be considered off season. Summertime at a ski resort would be considered a bronze season.

Depending on each resort’s calendar, the season will be labeled Platinum Plus, Platinum, Gold, Silver or Bronze. For example, a Marriott resort inArubaoffers platinum and gold seasons all year long, as this destination is in high demand during all 52 weeks of the year.

How many guests can 2 and 3 bedroom room sleep?

A two-bedroom suite can sleep 8 guests comfortably. The master suites feature a queen- or kind-sized bed while the spare bedroom will feature 2 full-sized mattresses. The fold-out couch in the living room will also sleep 2 guests. 3 bedroom suites can sleep 10 guests without the use of an additional cot.

What is a Five Star resort?

What is a Floating Week?

Based on availability at the resort, a floating week can be used at any time during the year. Some weeks are deeded to a specific week with the option to float. Most Marriott weeks are able to floating within their own season. For example, a week that is deeded to a platinum season can be used any time within that season.

What is a lock-off or lock-out unit?

A lock-off unit or villa is essentially two adjoining room. The suite can be divided into two separate sections, or combined for one larger unit. The owner of a lock-off has several options. He or she may choose to stay in one half while renting out the other. They can rent out their unit to two different parties. Or the entire unit can be rented out to one party.
