Timeshare Versus Hotels

A timeshare may be as simple as a converted hotel room or it can be a spectacular three bedroom tree house villa overlooking a golf course complete with flat screen televisions and gaming systems. With 6,000 properties around the world, they can vary greatly even within the same geographic area. The major difference of course is the fact that you rent a hotel room while you own a timeshare.

In comparing a typical timeshare to a typical hotel room you will find that a timeshare:

  • Has more space-most feature a separate living area and sleeping areas
  • Has at least a basic kitchen or kitchenette unit, complete with cookware
  • Has more and higher quality services and amenities, many of which are included (as opposed to a fee basis)
