What is the difference between Biennial Membership and General Membership?

Biennial Membership is, as the name suggests, Club Caribe membership that is valid every alternate year. It is sometimes known as Odd-Even Membership as members can use their club points during either odd numbered calendar years or even numbered calendar years. On the other hand, standard General Membership is the full yearly allocation of your Club Points.

Certain restrictions apply to Biennial Membership when banking, borrowing or renting Club Points. For example, full members will be able to bank or borrow Club Points for up to 5 years in advance, while Biennial Members will be able to bank towards or borrow Club Points from their next Use Period only. Likewise, when wishing to rent Club Points, Biennial Members can only rent up to 50% of the amount of Club Points currently owned for season upgrades (but not for suite size upgrades), whereas Full Members can rent up to 50% of the total number of Club Points needed to confirm your desired reservation.

In most respects, your Biennial Membership offers similar benefits to Full Membership except that you enjoy your Club Caribe accommodations every alternate year; however, it is always worth consulting the Rules and Regulations document if you have any doubts. For upgrading from a Biennial Membership to a Full Membership, speak to your Club Caribe Concierge on you next visit to Villa del Palmar Cancun or call 1-877-722-4592.
