Why is 'Vacation Membership' different to Timeshare?
Genuine timeshare is a potentially fantastic concept because it offers flexibility and affordability. However, Vacation Membership goes beyond this by filling in the gaps, expanding on the overall concept, and setting new standards you deserve and that only Anfi can achieve. Vacation Membership is what, in an ideal world, timeshare should have been.
At Anfi, excellence and values are not only maintained, but continually improved upon. Our core values are to offer security, customer satisfaction, service, quality, integrity and innovation.
Membership should not be seen as an investment for financial gain. It is an investment in your life, your family, and your future holiday experiences.

The Anfi resorts were carved out of the volcanic rocks on the island’s south west coast of Mogán.
