If we didn't have two Teens starting College in September, I would have bought a Gold Membership. Before we left I read some of the negative reviews and went with an open mind. As for the Timeshare Hounds this is how I handled them, I told one of them that we were here for two weeks and promised him that we would talk to him in a week after we had a look around and did our own exploring and offered to shake his hand, after we explored for a week we went on the presentation. We just couldn't dip into the Kids College Fund, maybe in a couple of years.
The Resort is wonderful, the service, meals and drinks were better than expected, Yes the Buffet is a little repetative but at home I don't eat 4 types of meats and 3 different starches in the same meal, do you? The V.I.P. Welcome party was SUPER, show, food, fireworks and drinks. The V.I.P. Beach and Pool had the top shelf booze, but we hung around the Pool bar, little more room and friendlier. You have to remember the average wage in DR is about 50 pecos a hour ( $1.35US ), so that $1 US tip carries alot of wieght.
There is only one thing to remember, you are on Holidays, enjoy, relax and don't sweat the small stuff.
