Me and my boyfriend were recently at Hawaii and stayed at The Westin Ka'anapali Ocean Resort Villas for a week. During our time over there we were approached and given a sales presentation on Time Sharing property at the Westin. We were really intrigued by the offer, however this was really a new thing to us and we don't have anyone in our friends circle who has taken advantage of similar system.
Do you know anyone who is an owner of similar property? Are these membership worth the money?

    Don't do it. Timeshares are so not worth it cuz of the maintenance fees. There are actually companies whose business is buying timeshares from people since the fees are just not worth it. Getting rid of a timeshare will cost you money. Save up your money for vacation.

    Nonononononono trust me. Talk to anybody who has had them or does points and miles games. It is neeeeever worth it. Sometimes even when you can get in free and just pay annual maintenance it still often isn’t worth it.

    Watch the presentation. They will give you perks (free hotel room tickets to shows) etc. if you negotiate you can get free gifts for around $500. The presentation takes around 90ish minutes. Don’t buy the timeshare after the presentation is done. As others have said it’s a trap. Walk away with freebies.

    From what I have read, the property and extra fees are high and they keep increasing it every year to unreasonable amounts. So much that people give up their timeshare for free http://timeshare4free.com/
