My wife is thinking about buying a timeshare from a friend that would provide a week stay in resorts around the world. Cost is about $2500 + <$400/yr fees. I'd like to hear about your timeshare experiences, the good, the bad and the ugly. What should we look for, or avoid? Have your experiences been worthwhile, did you get your money's worth, and would you buy a timeshare again if you had it to do over? A few years ago we joined family at their rci timeshare in Kauai and had a good vacation, but after sitting in on a sales spiel, I swore I'd never do it again. I just hate the multi level marketing BS. It that avoidable or are you always having to fend off the sharks? What do you say, yea or nay?
