Are there blackout dates?

Remember that some timeshare properties do not only cater to timeshare owners. They also offer overnight or multi-night stays to non-owners, functioning like a regular hotel. In these cases, “hotel” guests pay far more per night (sometimes five times as much) to stay at the property than timeshare owners do. For that reason, the property may cater to non-owners during major holidays, knowing that’s how they make the most profit. This can be frustrating for timeshare owners, who find they cannot use their timeshare during said holidays. The property may black these out for timeshare holders, reserving them for short-term guests who will pay much more.
