Does anyone know which RCI hotels are good. My information shows that Banyan Bay is very good but we wonder about the rest.
-Caribbean Jewel under construction
-royal palm beach club
-seven seas resort

I have stayed at a number of RCI time shares and they can be from luxury to dumpy, it is nice to know ahead of time.
Royal Palms' few time share units(4 I think) are well worn and according to a person I met last week a bit dirty. Nice pool and quiet. No activities. There is a bar and resturant close by. If you can get in cheap, I'd say go for it.
Seven seas is just plain rag tag. No way I would stay there.
If you can get into Banyon Bay it is very nice.
Caribbean Jewel is doesn't exist. Banyan Bay is Gold Crown and really nice. Grand Colony, also Gold Crown, is one of the most luxurious and most expensive accomodations on the island ($1000 per night). Royal Palm and Seven Seas are ok for some but many have had bad experiences with their exchange.
I work with RCI, PM if you need additional assistance.

Stayed at Royal Palms in Feb and did the RCI tour of Banyan Bay while there - definitely stay at Banyan Bay

IF you can get in....and it is a big IF....Banyan Bay is the ONE.
Banyan Bay's RCI sales group is touting giving two weeks of RCI trades for each week you transfer into the pool. Few RCI weeks are available in Belize.
Fact of life...most RCI trades are done by US Citizens...other countries' owners use their weeks at their resort. I've tried unsuccessfully for three years to get a place in Venice, Italy.

Have stayed at BB. "Won" a free week in Feb '06 and stayed there in Oct 06 to experience the southern part of town.
Have spent the last three Jan/Feb's in SP north of the cut.
