Horrible. DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME HERE. We went for the time share presentation and were told that it would be 90 minutes and we ended up being there for 3 1/2 hours. It was the same typical time share draw where they make you seem like you are getting a good deal and pressure you into buying something on the spot. Part of me actually believed them, but the one main draw back with what they are selling is if you look more into the properties you can switch your time share with most of the places I want to go are not even in there. Anyway the first time share person who was with us for most of the afternoon seemed friendly and helped the time go by faster, but then the actual sales rep came over he was horrible. I do not remember his name, but I will say that it was a lot to do with him that made us really not want to buy here. He was very unpersonable and was just direct and to the point and was in no way willing to negotiate at all on price. It is all about coming up with numbers that after you leave there you realize made no sense. The other huge disappointment was that we went to the time share presentation being told we were going to get a three night trip to Hawaii with airfare, but when looking at reviews before we went I found out that you really only end up with about one full day there with the times the flights come in and leave. So we asked to switch to the other gift which was supposed to be three nights in Catalina with boat tickets. I was also told that if the gift did not involve airfare then you were able to go any day of the week including weekends. Well after the presentation we were given our gift and it was one night in Catalina and has to be used midweek with a bunch of restrictions. When I saw this I said this is not what I was promised and was told that they could not do anything and I was given a small slip of paper with a number on it to call. Well I have been calling that number daily and leaving messages and I have not received one call back. I don't even think someone listens to those messages or answers the phone.
The resort itself was not that great either. It was very overcrowded and the amenities were average at best.
