How do they determine how much your maint. fee will go up from year to year in our place. I'm thinking about buying a timeshare in Costa Linda the 2 bedroom goes for 870.00 per year. I called the resort and they told me the Costa Linda maint. goes up if the cost of living goes up, whatever % that is per year. I asked her to send me the last 5 years maint. invoices and they avg. about $40.00 more per year. That place looks so much better than our place. They charged all there member $300 per unit and the renovation consisted of All new Stainless steel Appl. granite counter tops new tile in every room new bathrooms and they also reupholstered all the furniture. Our place charged us $150.00 for a sofa and lounge chair. Just something to think about.

I don't know the answer to that. I bought my 1 bedroom in 2001, here are the fees since then:
2001 395
2002 420
2003 430
2004 480
2005 505
2006 Riu closed
2007 555
2008 555
2009 620
2010 620
2011 620

Back in 2005 the Aruba Grand proposed a total overhaul of the 5th floor units with an assessment of $580 per week owned for the 5th floor owners only. It was voted down. The only assessment that I know of has been this years $150 which is for everyone. I don't believe there has been any major work done on any of the units since they were new.
Last year all the units were painted and we got new mattresses and draperies without any cost to us.
