While a great location will always be attractive, it’s important for resorts to invest in the upgrade of guest areas to ensure that the quality standards their owners, and RCI members, expect are maintained. Timeshare annual maintenance fees are used to pay for resort refurbishment work, and the benefits are there for all to enjoy.
A number of our resorts affiliated to RCI across Spain and the Canary Islands have carried out upgrades recently. Here are just a few examples of those resort transformations.
Pearly Grey Ocean Club (1786)
The RCI Gold Crown Resort in Tenerife is undergoing a major upgrade, with all the studio, one- and two-bedroom apartments in the hotel being completely refurbished to high standards, and with the latest technology. The resort’s seafront apartments are also being refurbished, the first of which are already available.
Apartamentos Tropical Park (2403)
With a fabulous location just 150 yards from the beach of Callao Salvaje, this Tenerife resort is undergoing a massive €6 million refurbishment programme that will see the whole resort given a new look.
