Royal Sunset- AI mandatory or not?

I paid this off back in 2004 and have not stayed at Royal Sunset yet but have used the interclub to stay in Aruba for my honeymoon in 2005. It was a hassle with their old reservations system but otherwise we had a great time afterwards...

Anyway, we are interested in renting out our weeks but not sure how to deal with the all-inclusive fee that they have at Royal Sunset.

I've searched some rentals for Royal Sunset by other owners and some post that the all inclusive plan is optional and then others post that it is mandatory. I have received email responses from Sunset's reservations rep, Luz Salinas, who said that the AI is mandatory at both Royal Sunset and Sunset Lagoon and you must pay for per person for as many days that you will be staying at the resort (which I think is ridiculous, I would rather choose how many days to be on it).

Someone else told me that it is not mandatory for renters but the renters would be going under my name right,? So wouldn't they have to pay?

Thanks, any help appreciated.

Check your contract. If you are obligated to use the AI then whoever you rent to must. We went to Royal Sunset on my sister's RCI plan and had to do the AI>

Absolutely right. If your contract says AI is mandatory, it is for whoever uses your week. Ours is non-AI from 1994 or so. They didn't do AI then. I believe the new ones are all mandatory-AI. If it's not mandatory AI then you can choose to do AI for a day or so, the whole week or not at all.

I know that in our RCI book, the Royal Sunset is listed twice (with different numbers). One is AI mandatory and the other is AI optional. I'm not sure what happens when you own there. This is just to exchange through RCI.
