Timeshare Resort Review Awards!!!


To help generate needed reviews on resorts that either lack current reviews or resorts which only have older reviews, we are awarding Special Review awards good for a 6 month TUG membership extension

To qualify for this review award, the review must be detailed in the resort information (see tips below) and it must be for a resort that either does not have existing reviews or the last review posted is at least 6 months old.  If the review is qualified, the reviewer will receive the new resort review award.  If the review is not quite award standard, we will ask the reviewer to expand it so they can qualify for this award.

We have rewarded over 4000 Resort Review Awards to our current members who have taken the extra effort to provide in-depth reviews of resorts that we needed updated input. That works out to over 2000 years worth of Free memberships awarded. Let's keep them coming.

Also note we have enacted a new permanent review award for any and all reviews!  This award is granted for any review for any resort submitted by a current member.  No requirements (within reason here folks) in terms of length or content, and it doesnt matter when the last review was submitted!  This will earn you a 2 month extension of your TUG membership absolutely free!

We use these awards to reward those in the TUG community who give back and help build a better site for all other Timeshare owners who visit, we have hundreds of owners who continue to extend their memberships permanently by doing nothing but submitting resort reviews!  Its quick, its easy, and its 100% free!

  • Unit Features
  • Kitchen Features
  • Resort Amenities
  • Size of Unit
  • Condition of Unit, Resort Buildings, and Property
  • Staff Friendliness and Responsiveness
  • Convenience to Area Attractions
  • Any problems encountered such as check-in problems, room changes, etc.
  • Your opinion on numerical rating for the resort and why.
  • Planned Resort Activities such as welcome parties, barbecues, kid programs, and outings
  • Suitability of Resort for couples
  • Any Additional fees assessed
  • What you Exchanged the unit for?

The main reason this group was started this group 22 years ago was to provide a place that individuals owners could exchange information about the resorts they have visited. I had a bad exchange prior to TUG and now hopefully because of our review database no other member will ever have to go to a resort without knowing what it is really like. The reviews are the heart and soul of our group so please keep them coming even if they are not qualified for this new award. Everyone has different viewpoints and observations and the more resort reviews we have the better it is for all of us.

Thanks for everyone's support on this effort to improve our TUG reviews!

Why become a TUG member?

There is an extended TUG resort reviews database here on this web site available only to TUG members. There are over 4000 resorts covered by this database now and growing weekly. The reviews also include pictures of the resorts, general resort information and a list of owners' email addresses who are willing to answer additional questions regarding the resorts not covered by the detailed reviews.   This is a quick way to see how our members rate the resorts which they have actually stayed at. It has become a valuable source of information to use when planning for exchanges.
