Occupancy Level

The occupancy level, also known as occupancy rate, refers to the amount of reservations booked at a particular resort compared to the accommodating space at the resort.

Occupancy describes just how full a resort is. It is in everyone’s interest to keep occupancy level relatively high, and more importantly, constant. Maximum occupancy is the absolute highest number of people that can be accommodated by a resort at one time. Of course, if the occupancy level of a resort is near the maximum, it may be hard for other owners to book, if they are utilizing a points-based ownership. But also, reaching near maximum occupancy means that owners are actively using their timeshares, which is always a good indication that folks are getting to enjoy their vacation time.
