Great resort... but its a Time-Share Sales pitch
Posted Sep 13, 2016
We booked through expedia to stay at a wonderful resort - with pools, lazy river, mini golf, and a great 1 bedroom villa apartment. Within 20 minutes on the property, they were trying to sell us a time share... booking us for a 9am tour the next morning (not asking... just booking it). Finally I said "Im not interested" and she kept on talking. By the third time I'm in her face "I've been in this room (lobby) 40 minutes. I want to go to my room. Give me my key and parking permit". The next morning, at 9am I get a call with the same pitch. I said "I booked a room" and they said "Didn't you know it was a time share?". NO! Expedia doesn't say that on their site.
The resort was lovely, the room was good (except the bed). But it was over 1 mile to the lazy river that the picture makes it look like its outside your door. And they charge $9 p.p per day to use the lazy river, on top of the $9 per day resort fee. So, OK, it costs more to use some things ... I can live with that because the cost to stay was very reasonable.
So Its a great place, its VERY large, and there is a STRONG sales pitch (pretty much a used car salesman... I asked a guy who went on the tour, how much? He said 'I have no idea.. it started at $42k and was down to $5k when I left").
