The 5 Best Wyndham Timeshare Resorts

Timeshare resorts offer the unique advantage of having a vacation home, that still feels like home.  Whether you’re looking for me time, tee time, or family time, these budget timeshare resorts are a great option for your next vacation. 


First things first: Why rent a timeshare versus a hotel room?

Timeshares, also known as vacation clubs, allow for a ton of flexibility when it comes to traveling frequently on a budget. When you become a club member, you can buy into points systems or own a certain week each year and take advantage of many different timeshares around the world within the same family of resorts! Timeshares also offer far more comfort and amenities than your average hotel, suites and villas typically boast full kitchens, separate bedrooms, private balconies, living rooms, and multiple flat-screen TVs while on-site you’ll find pools, bars, restaurants, nightly entertainment, and more.  One such resort brand is the Wyndham Vacation Club, which is a great choice for timeshares since they offer over 200 properties across the globe, allowing for tons of awesome opportunities to vacation under the Wyndham umbrella.

Not only that, but even if you’re not part of a timeshare or vacation club, you can rent other people’s extra timeshares (via the links below), allowing you to get big discounts on resorts that would otherwise cost much more. 

Here are my picks for the best Wyndham Vacation Club Resorts

1. Wyndham Royal Garden at Waikiki in Hawaii 

Perfect for: Couples and families looking to head to Hawaii this year

Hawaii is opening up for travelers again October 15th (and you can read everything you need to know about that here).

If Honolulu, Hawaii is on your bucket list, The Wyndham Royal Garden is located in Waikiki along the Ala Wai canal, and is a great budget option in downtown Honolulu – walkable to tons of restaurants and bars, and to the main strip of world-famous Waikiki Beach. This Wyndham property mixes European-style gardens blended with the tropical appeal of Oahu. The outdoor pool, garden, media lounge, and sauna bring tranquility, while bustling Honolulu calls just steps away. 

2. El Cid Marina Beach Hotel in Mazatlan, Mexico

Perfect for: Families and couples looking for a Mexico getaway

You guys I used to go to this hotel with my family growing up and have SUCH good memories here! This all-inclusive resort and timeshare property in Mazatlan is perfect for families looking to have a good time South of the Border. Surrounded by sea, sand, and some epic pools, this timeshare oasis is one you’re not going to want to come home from. 

Each of the 500 rooms at El Cid offers modern amenities including flat-screen satellite TVs, air-conditioning, and private balconies, some of which have sea views. The property also boasts a wide beach, three restaurants with alfresco dining and room service, and a massive, family-friendly pool complex is among the area’s largest and is sure to be a kid-pleaser. 


3. Wyndham Bluebeard’s Beach Club in St. Thomas, US Virgin Islands

Perfect for: Couples looking to sneak away to the Caribbean this Winter

Nestled on a secluded Caribbean beach at the southern end of St. Thomas island (where my fiance Kenny did his Virgin Islands Bachelor Party), this is your idyllic oceanside timeshare vacation in the Caribbean. Bluebeard’s Beach Club offers a cozy escape, with its bright and airy rooms that open up to balconies and views of an outdoor swimming pool with a swim-up bar, an exercise room, massage services, and beachfront access. The surrounding area offers opportunities for shopping, dining, visiting other islands such as St. John or Tortola, and exploring some of the world’s most beautiful beaches.

Perfect for: couples, solo travelers, families, business travelers, or anyone wanting to go to Las Vegas

If a trip to the entertainment capital of the world – Las Vegas – is on your bucket list, you’re definitely going to want to check out a Wyndham Grand Desert timeshare. Located a short 5-minute walk from the Las Vegas Strip, a timeshare at the Wyndham Grand Desert Las Vegas offers access to 3 outdoor pools, 4 hot tubs, a gym, a game room, apartment-style accommodations including full kitchens or kitchenettes and in-unit laundry. The hotel also offers complimentary shuttles to the Strip, giving you exceptionally easy access to all the thrills of Vegas, while also being able to enjoy family fun within the resort grounds.


5. Wyndham Bonnet Creek in Orlando

Perfect for: golfers and families

Many families may be planning trips to Walt Disney World next year, and the Wyndham Grand property is an excellent choice for your big family trip to Orlando. The resort spans 500 acres and has 400 rooms and suites with pillow-top mattresses, Mediterranean-style furnishings, and plenty of entertainment right on the property, including a lagoon pool (complete with cabanas & fire pits), Blue Harmony Spa, three restaurants and even a jogging trail. Guests also get complimentary shuttle service to Walt Disney World. Big win!, who is not affiliated with Wyndham Resorts, offers affordable rentals and resales at the resort from private owners, making it possible to save money on your next vacation. This post was written in collaboration with them to showcase some of my favorites on their site. As always, I’ll never recommend a place or site I don’t think you’ll love.
