Marriott to debut new Singer Island timeshare

January 13, 2010 04:01PM

Marriott is planning to open its new timeshare resort, Oceana Palms — the Palm Beaches, on Singer Island in Riviera Beach  this week. The 19-story tower, which sits on the oceanfront site of a former Crowne Plaza hotel at 3200 North Ocean Drive, had 75 two-bedroom, two-bathroom units initially available, plus swimming pools, a restaurant, fitness center. Units are going for about $35,000 a week, though they can also be rented through Marriott. The company has another timeshare resort, the 333-unit Ocean Pointe in Palm Beach Shores, and plans to expand Oceana Palms with another tower if sales are brisk and the economy moves further into recovery.

    Most timeshare companies are taking advantage of people, often those who are more vulnerable and less able to resist hard sales tactics. I have heard of many cases where maintenance costs rise well above inflation. It would appear the timeshare companies lock people into contracts and then drive up their profits though increased maintenance charges. It would be good to see legislation whereby timeshare companies can only charge “reasonable” maintenance costs and not use this annual fee to fleece people’s bank accounts
