Smile Re: Timeshare inquiry at Marriott Surf Club

Do lots of background work on this before you decide. There is much info on Aruba available and some good places to find resales. I think most people would recommend a resale as the best financial option. Some people will say that you can rent timeshares and not spend "all that money" and that's probably true, but some people (us included) like to know that they have the same place every year available to them. We love owning and are probably going to buy a second week, but it's definitely not a sound financial with returns investment.
The Marriott is probably one of the most expensive on the island and one thing to check out is if you are getting a particular week or a time frame. For instance, we have week 6 at the Divi Phoenix for 40 years-same unit every year. There are many very nice complexes and I'd check them all out before jumping in. If you look at Playa Linda and Costa Linda, they have their own web page with resales listed. Divi has a web page for owners on yahoo and they list resales there. Then there's redweek and tug2-they list alot of them.
There's much to look at and know and the people who already own can be a real valuable asset.
Good luck,
