Timeshare 101

Here are basic questions about buying timeshare and vacation ownership on the resale market. See below to view the answers to our most popular timeshare buyer questions.

What is a timeshare?

A timeshare is a form of vacation ownership. Essentially, when you buy timeshare you purchase the right to vacation at a resort. Usually, your timeshare will allow you to visit once per year, or sometimes every other year. In the last decade, timeshare has grown from this most traditional form to include a variety of options. Now a timeshare can mean owning one week every year to a collection of points.

A timeshare resale is any ownership that is purchased on the secondary market. These timeshares are typically sold by the owner, rather than directly from the resort. An Aruba Surf Club resale can offer significant savings to the timeshare buyer.

How do timeshare maintenance fees work?

Timeshare maintenance fees are annual fees charged to the owner by the developer or HOA. These fees cover the costs of resort maintenance, housekeeping, and renovations. Most timeshares will also be charged a tax fee along with these yearly maintenance dues.

Hotels vs. Timeshare

What’s the difference between a timeshare and a hotel? Well, timeshares usually provide more space and more amenities than a traditional hotel room. With a hotel room you’ll typically pay an expensive rate for a cramped studio hotel room. However, with an Aruba Surf Club timeshare you’ll receive a week-long stay in a one-, two-, or three-bedroom suite. With a timeshare resale, you’ll also save up to 70% on retail prices. Skip the hotel, buy a timeshare resale for your next vacation and save.

Frequently Asked Questions for Timeshare Buyers

Why are timeshare resales less expensive than buying from the developer?

Timeshare resales are typically priced 20–70% off retail prices. This is because the developer usually charges a premium with all purchases. This upcharge is typically used to cover the resort’s cost for sales & marketing.
These fees may cover the resort’s giveaways, prizes, free meals and more. However, smart buyers understand that these “free” prizes and upcharges are unnecessary. At, you’ll buy timeshare directly from the owner allowing you to skip the inflated prices.

How much does it cost to buy an Aruba Surf Club timeshare resale?

The purchase price of an Aruba Surf Club timeshare will depend upon your unit’s ownership details. Buying a timeshare resale during a peak week (such as Christmas week) will typically cost more than a non-peak week (September-October). The size of a unit may also affect price. Usually, a three-bedroom unit will cost more than a one-bedroom unit.

To view exact prices, such for your desired unit in our timeshares for sale or contact a resale representative.

Can I afford vacation ownership?

A timeshare can be an affordable way to travel, especially if you travel on an annual basis. You can save hundreds off your yearly vacation when you buy an Aruba Surf Club timeshare resale. However, for families that do not travel often you may benefit more from a one-time timeshare rental.

Only you can determine if a timeshare fits your needs financially. However, our representatives are happy to work through this information with you.

What is the difference between Marriott Vacation Club weeks and points?

There are two types of Marriott vacation ownership: weeks and points. With a weeks ownership you will purchase a fixed timeshare week, such as Christmas week. This type of ownership is ideal for those owners who like to travel the same time each year.

With a points-based ownership you will have more flexibility to travel within the Marriott network, but you’ll need to plan ahead. With a points ownership, it is recommended that you book your desired week as soon as possible. This will allow you the greatest chance of receiving your desired week.

Due to its popularity, the Marriott’s Aruba Surf Club is primarily sold in weeks. This allows Aruba owners to have the first opportunity to book a week before points members are permitted to do so.

Can I exchange my Aruba Surf Club timeshare week?

When you buy an Aruba Surf Club timeshare resale, you’ll have the ability to trade your week through Marriott Vacation Club, as well as with Interval International (II). With an II membership you’ll be able to travel to the 53 Marriott Vacation Club timeshare resorts around the globe. You can also travel to almost any Interval-affiliated resort. With your Aruba Surf Club ownership, you’ll have access to them all.
