Affiliation with Resort Condominiums International, Inc. (RCI)
RCI is the largest and most experienced vacation exchange company in the world and it is a leading provider of travel services nationally.
RCI pioneered the vacation exchange concept in 1974. Today RCI has over 4,000 affiliated resorts in 89 countries around the world. RCI's
worldwide membership is over 3 million, with nearly 75% of RCI's membership exchanging and vacationing at RCI resorts around the world every year. RCI's audited
performance record points to the fact that over 97% of all exchange requests are fulfilled.
Jacobs Landing Resort has been affiliated with RCI since 1989.
GOLD CROWN STATUS
Only the top 10% of the resorts in the RCI exchange system are designated "Gold Crown".
To achieve this recognition a resort must meet the highest standards of quality and
service excellence. Jacobs Landing meets those standards. Because the RCI exchange is based
on value of deposit for value of exchange, you will have the advantages of owning at an RCI
Gold Crown Resort and being able to more easily exchange your unit for other high quality
Gold Crown resorts, along with all the other resorts in the RCI exchange system.
Every unit in the RCI system is assigned an RCI "maximum occupancy". For instance, a one bedroom
has an occupancy of four, and a two bedroom has an occupancy of six. A private occupancy is also
identified, which informs RCI members the number of occupants a unit will sleep with privacy.
RCI, not the resorts, determine the demand periods (seasons) for every affiliated resort worldwide including
Jacobs Landing. The demand periods for Jacobs Landing are as follows:
Red Time (greatest demand) are from:
March 27 to October 22 and
December 18 to January 8.
White Time ( average demand) are from:
January 9 to March 26 and
October 23 to December 17.
Blue Time (Lower demand)
Jacobs Landing has no blue time on its RCI calendar.
RCI seasons are different for most resort areas. For example, all resorts in Hawaii are Red Time year round.
Palm Springs is Red Time in the winter and Blue time in the summer months.
