In general, maintenance fees at the majority of Marriott Vacation Club resorts will be rising in 2018. Most owners can expect a jump of anywhere from three to five percent, with dues increasing by as much as one hundred dollars overall. While specific maintenance fees are determined on a case-by-case basis, Marriott Vacation Club owners will largely be in store for some kind of increase. Popular home resorts like Marriott’s OceanWatch Villas, Marriott’s Newport Coast Villas, and Marriott’s Grand Chateau fall into this category, leaving owners with a higher bill than what they paid in 2017.
Other properties are seeing a rise in annual dues of over seven percent, marking a significant jump from 2017 rates. Marriott’s Harbour Point at Shelter Cove will see a jump of around 8%, while certain Marriott’s Imperial Palms Villas owners are reporting increases of 7.3%. Some two and three bedroom units at Marriott’s Ocean Pointe are even seeing increases of up to 19%—this massive jump is rare, but can happen.
