I thought I had already written a review on this tine share, but it appears that it did not go in. I wanted to say a few very important things and touch on a few issues based on other comments made on trip advisor.
First of all, we have been going to island seas for four consecutive years .this year we will be staying for a month. We began by purchasing a 1BR on Court Yard view. We went to the 90 minute presentation, which it actually took over 3 hours and ended up involving the then Sales Manager, who now is the General Manager( very much deserved promotion). My husband and I don't look lightly at purchasing anything, much less a time share. It is a second home and the price is just about the price of a new car or a down payment on a house. We made sure that all our questions were answered and that we understood every statement on the contract, including small print or not. We also made sure that we took full advantage of our meeting with the Verification Manager who is also a pleasure to deal with as a professional and a representative of the resort . We know own 2 ocean front weeks. That should tell you how much we love our "second" home.
This is not a HOTEL! This is a time share and travelers need to carefully read about this and other time shares, you will find what to expect in terms of amenities, age group appropriate activities, weather conditions when you plan to travel, and what the resort offers in terms of room(s) amenities, ask about when /what maid service is going to be given, then you won't have any surprises and therefore no complaints. Island Seas Resort
Is the best time share we've been privileged to visit. We own other time shares and we always deposit those weeks to use them at Island Seas. My husband and I have discussed,many times, in visiting other resorts , but we coming back to Island Seas. Now it's really our "second"home. We know everyone, their families, their work schedules, how many jobs they have( usually at least two) to make ends meet, and we care about them deeply.
We know what to expect and when, we cook and clean our room, we make the bed daily, except for once a week when the maid service does it and cleans all the rooms.
Otherwise , they take out the trash daily, change towels if you have them on the floor. We usually don't change towels daily, we don't need to, and just like at home, we like to conserve energy by not using hot water,etc.
So, our opinion is that this resort does not deserve negative comments if you ask what to expect.
You don't have to cook there, you can go out to eat, or eat in the resort's restaurants, you can change your towels daily, have the trash taken out daily, but you will have to make your bed daily,etc, except the once a week I discussed earlier.
In any case, read up about this or any other resort you plan to visit and know what to expect. Call the resort and ask questions.!!!! The membership department is wonderful and works wonders when you get in and get to your room and review( based on a list they give you) if you are missing any items or something is not in proper working order.
Also please fill out the evaluation sheet before you leave . They do read it!
Don't we love this place?!!!!'
