We have owned a time share at Westgate for 25 years. Last year we secured thru trade3 units at Westgate Lakes.
They placed us in the older original resort without any recourse. This year they are trying to charge us a 250$ event fee if we want to exchange our Florida unit for a lesser unit in Phoenix. These folks are greedy beyond belief and I have had it with them! Additionally,the maintenance fee is900 dollars now and many of their resorts are available for a lesser price than the main thence and exchange fees.
Don't waste your money.
Go to a reputable website and get your accommodations on a yearly basis. You will save money and avoid the larcenous and escalating fees that Westgate charges!
Monetary Loss: $1000.
