This was the worst vacation ever! First we were brought to a room which was already occupied, then after trekking back to the desk we were offered a small dingy room off in "left field" of the resort. Finally, a nice desk clerk got us into a decent room, whew! The "Vacation Club" (aka Time Share) representatives were like vultures, finally my husband said ok, show us your stuff. After quite a few top shelf drinks hubby decided to sign up for a $5,000 trial membership. The sales pitch was a total mis-representation! Within a day or so of annoying issues and members telling us how they had gotten trapped into the program and you are lucky to get any of the benefits we tried to opt out but were told the only thing we could do was possibly write to corporate and maybe they would redeem a portion of our money, if they agreed with our complaint. Luckily our credit card company sided with us and refunded the entire amount. I have been so embarassed about being suckered in that this is the first time I have admitted to anyone that we were so stupid.
P.S. the food was also as bad as every one said!
