I am always getting asked about the actual number of true hotels/resorts on the island vs timeshares and condo developments that rent out as "resorts"? Even when I lived on the island, places calling themselves "resorts" were really other types of developments. Does anyone know how many non-timeshare/condo complexes are actually on the island?

depends on your definitions I guess.

Now back to your regularly scheduled drivel...

Ok - meaning accommodation types that are not deemed individually owned units within a larger entity. Hotels are owned by a corporation or individual vs the timeshare/condo model

This is a really rough list of properties on the island:

You would have to go through the list and make a determination as to which ones are condos, which are villas, which are hotels, which are timeshares, and which ones are full service resorts.

A number of condo/hotels are mixed type ownership where the developers sold of some of the units as condos, then put them back into the hotel operation under contract. The remaining units are still held by the developer/hotelier. A guest wouldn't necessarily be aware of all this.
