What’s the difference? You might say. A hotel is a room. A resort is a room with a view. A time-share is a home. While a hotel room provides a place to rest after a busy day sight seeing, or on the road, it does not provide much more than a shower and bed, even in the most luxurious accommodations. A resort provides the shower, the bed and usually spectacular views of beaches, snowy mountains or pastoral scenes. Together with these perks comes also a hefty resort fee. We can also choose an all-inclusive resort, which will provide the room with the view plus meals, entertainment, drinks and, as the name describes, everything you might need or want. The time-share may be all-inclusive, a resort, or small apartment, but it is always a home away from home. Even in the most limited areas, such as Paris and New York, the time-share concept will provide the room, plus a sitting area, spacious bathroom and a kitchen, allowing the guest to prepare meals, have a leisurely breakfast in pijamas or to entertain friends.
