How intense are the timeshare pitches? Do they force you to go?

We found these time share pitches to be even more pushy than in the past. They seem to have a new gimick now in which they suddenly come up with "an offer that you can't refuse" and in the seconds you are assimilating what they are offering, the sales partner comes to the table to push you more! I believe if you are a time share owner that you have to go to one presentation.

No, they will try to entice you with some discounts but a simple and meaningful No Thank You will get the job done! PS.... Do not accept room 2206, just stayed there, maintenance daily. Ouch

We own here and return every spring. With each return we sign up for the meeting, see what’s new in the group and eat breakfast on them. Once they give their two cents a simple no thank you with respect and that usually ends it just fine. I have never had a bad experience with these meeting and enjoy seeing the changes to the area each year.

Hi, we are members so each year they want us to go to the member's update and they incentivize that by giving discounts on activities. If you are not a member and just staying as a hotel guest, it's probably the same, but, if you don't plan on doing activities, no need.

The presentation is not that hard-sale. If you are candid with them about your intentions to buy/not buy, they appreciate your honesty actually because remember, they're sales people and would rather spend time with someone they have a shot at signing. Just be direct and firm.

You are definitely required to go, but it wasn’t super high pressure in our experience. Seems like they’re either a) doing well enough that that’s not needed or b) have better sales training for their staff than most other places with a similar deal. They emphasize things like favorable social media reviews and even just coming down, having fun and telling your friends about it is a win (which really it is - I don’t generally book anywhere without checking TripAdvisor first). I actually thought the presentation was fun as we got to walk around a lot of the property and see different options and enjoy mimosas on the house

We went to one not really knowing what we were going to and although they were trying to make a sale they were respectful of our decision. We did like the place, just not the route we want to invest in. I mentioned to our sales person (Gerald) that we had gone to one many years ago and the person was very demeaning and pushy once we decided not to sign and he did take that into consideration. They still gave us the vouchers they had promised us and overall we thought our experience was worth it even though we didn’t purchase, hopefully yours goes well!
