For any holidaymaker, choosing a resort or hotel requires careful consideration, especially if it is somewhere new and unfamiliar. For timeshare owners looking to make long-term holiday decisions, it is even more crucial to ensure the right choices are made at every step of the journey. Looking at different opinions available on review websites is often one of the best strategies an individual can make when forming holiday plans. It allows you to glean impartial views from people who have experienced different aspects of a holiday, and can form an essential part of the decision-making process.

In particular, TripAdvisor is one of the most well-used tools for holidaymakers searching for unbiased opinions on lots of different aspects that make up a holiday. Using TripAdvisor can also be helpful for newbies to the timeshare industry, who might want reassurance that they are dealing with reputable organisations along the way.

One such company that has been proving its worth in the holiday ownership industry in recent times is RCI. The leading vacation exchange company has seen several of its affiliated properties rank highly as some of the best in the world, according to a recent TripAdvisor poll based on user reviews and their experiences.

The poll highlighted the top 25 all-inclusive resorts in the world, and was based on user opinions from August 2013 until July 2014. According to the results, seven of the properties in the top 25 list were affiliated with RCI. Those properties included The Reserve at Paradisus Punta Cana, Punta Cana, Dominican Republic; Secrets Maroma Beach Riviera Cancun, Playa Maroma, Mexico; Grand Velas Riviera Maya, Playa del Carmen, Mexico; The Reserve at Paradisus Palma Real, Punta Cana, Dominican Republic; Salinas do Maragogi All Inclusive Resort, Maragogi, Brazil; Secrets the Vine Cancun Resort & Spa, Cancun, Mexico and Secrets Silversands Riviera Cancun, Puerto Morelos, Mexico.

Even if you are not planning on taking a holiday at one of the high-ranking resorts from the poll, or you are not seeking an all-inclusive option, it is still useful to know that a company that you might be considering dealing with links itself with properties of quality and excellence. This shows that the company has a set of standards that it adheres to, and can help to provide the confidence an individual might need when making their holiday choices. For anyone looking to enter the holiday ownership industry, it is certainly, therefore, well worth taking the time to study user experience and reviews to ascertain the information you need to make informed decisions.
