We bought into Marriott Vacation Club 2006 with a platinum package. We have struggled every year to be able exchange our 2 bedroom unit for any properties within the Marriott Vacation Club locations like we were told. Marriott Vacation Club is a HUGE ripoff…!!! We spent thousands of dollars on this property, but we ALWAYS have to go outside of Marriott and use non-Marriott locations for all our vacations. Its extremely aggravating because I travel a lot (using Marriott) and they have been consistently good over the years. But buying into Marriott Vacation Club was the worse purchase I have ever made. I HIGHLY regret it.
