Every couple of weeks I save time to read through the reviews at a few resorts in PC. The Ambar has been my only experience in PC but I feel I can relate to most.
Today, on the Ambar front page, there are two reviews that talk about the Time Share pitch or whatever you call it, that happens. As you read other pages you see that quite a few are turned off from it and even though they have had a great stay, they don't like the "Come see the Esmerelda" or "Celebrate the anniversary of the Esmerelda"
I too had a small run in with these people when I was there. It left a little bit of a sour taste in my mouth. I politely said "no" and the guy stayed on us. I had to get assertive with him to make him go away.
Is there some way that we can tell the resorts that this is "Old School" and people just don't like it anymore? If you look at the reviews as an indicator, I think the reviews show that most people don't like it.
