Hyatt Residence Club Visit Site

Hyatt Residence Club makes it easy for you to take your vacation every year with its time-share program. With your membership, you can stay at popular destination spots, including Key West, Aspen and San Antonio, depending on availability. If you choose a home resort in a place you love – like the beach if you're a sun worshipper, or the mountains if you're a snow bunny – you can vacation there each year without paying extra fees. If you cannot take a trip this year, you will not be charged a fee if you bank your points to use on a vacation next year.

Hyatt's vacation travel club uses a point system, so you can use your points to stay at a resort within the company's network or trade your time through Interval International to see the world at thousands of different resorts. These resorts cost extra, and the point value for different resorts and during different times of the year may vary.

There are very few fees, and maintenance costs are included in the club dues. If you cannot use all of your points, you can save them for the following year (there is no fee for this), which is common for other clubs on our list. As with any family vacation package, Hyatt Residence Club may raise the cost of dues or fees, or raise the point cost of a block of time or units in a particular resort.

If you cancel your reservation, you will be charged a cancellation fee. As a Hyatt Residence Club member, you are enrolled in the Hyatt Gold Passport program, which allows you to earn points that you can use at Hyatt hotels, spas, restaurants and more.

When you purchase from the best time-share resorts, you can usually expect the deeded property to remain in your name in perpetuity, but with Hyatt, it won't. You can hand it down to your children or grandchildren, or will it to friends or other loved ones, but after 88 years, it returns to Hyatt.

The best vacation clubs give you the information you need to make an informed decision on whether you want to invest. When we checked, Hyatt Residence Club did not disclose all of the details of its program, but the sales and customer service staff we contacted were very helpful in answering all of the questions they could. We found a handful of complaints, but Hyatt either resolved the issues or attempted to do so.

As a member of Hyatt Residence Club, you can enjoy the Hyatt brand of resorts and hotels that are located around the world. You have even more options with your membership to Interval International, the time-share exchange group. Although you won't keep your ownership forever, this is a good choice if you're in the market for a vacation club membership.
