My grandparents are giving us the wonderful wedding present of a honeymoon through their timeshare (RCI). I’ve found plenty of beautiful places on there, but know it will be hard to find an availability when were wanting to go, May 16th-?
I was wondering if anyone had been on a honeymoon through RCI and had any suggestions of where to go or where not to go. Any tips will be greatly appreciated!
Some places I’m thinking of include: Breezes Curacao, Windjammer Landing Villa Beach Resort & Spa in St. Lucia, Oasis Marigot in St. Lucia, MVC at Paradisus Playa Conchal in Costa Rica, Casa Marina Reef in Dominican Republic, Ocean Blue & Sand in Dominican Republic, Sol Melia Vacation Club at Paradisus Palma Real in Dominican Republic, Nikki Beach Resort in Turks & Caicos, Grand Waikikian in Oahu…

I was also gifted and RCI honeymoon- we went to Sedona, AZ.
But when we were looking at places to go, I found TripAdvisor.com invaluable. A lot of the RCI properties are reviewed on there and it was really helpful to read the reviews and see other people’s photos and stuff.

I agree, make sure you read all the reviews you can. Some of RCI places can be just incredible and some not so hot. It can REALLy vary. GOod luck. Have a wonderful time.

My fiance’s parents also gave us their RCI timeshare for our honeymoon as well! We are in the process of trying to book Key West Fl! There are only two RCI places there, so hopefully we’ll be able to book it…otherwise I would like to go to Aruba or anywhere in the Carribbean really. I think its awesome that basically you an stay any place in the world for free for a week! I wish I had taken more time to research all the different places but we kinda picked Key West really quickly….reguardless I’m really excited! I kinda picked the destination over the “room/resort.”
I have also stayed in Naples FL with RCI last year. It was really nice (tons of shopping) but not an ideal honeymoon spot IMO.

Thanks! I’ve found a lot I like in the Caribbean and Tripadvisor.com helped a lot with the reviews! Good idea!
