Upon arrival to the beautiful lobby, we were attacked by the sharks from the timeshare. They were ruthless in getting us to sign up, and even though we knew better, we were worn down. The perks kept increasing, and our jet lagged bodies just wanted to get to our room. The next morning we appeared at the required location, and enjoyed an amazing breakfast. Then to the selling room, where the torture began. As we said no 3-5 times, we were elevated to the next chap in the management Que.. No to him, sent us even higher up the shark food chain. We have now invested nearly 3 hours, when we were promised 1 hour max. Along the way, one of the "Sales Professionals" said, when we said we were leaving that he would be penalized if we didn't stay through his presentation. We finally stood and started walking out, when we were shuffled into yet an other room, and told to sit again. When we refused, we were told by a retirement aged, very nice gentleman, that he may lose his job if we didn't comply. We sat. Then, we were approached yet again with another sales speech. We stood and attempted to leave, but were halted yet again to sign some paperwork to get our promised perks. From there we sent to another place/room to get them; another line. We were promised 4 things, received 1.5 of them, oddly enough both of which were on site. The other two were travel promotions, sounding to good to be true; $99 week of travel and $300 travel voucher. Neither of which could be used for any average vacation w/out spending hundreds more.
The hotel itself is beautiful, and the grounds impeccable. The timeshare experience totally ruined what should have been an exquisite experience.
