My husband and I were approached about Westgate while vacationing in Vegas last year- we sat down with them but with no intention to buy and I specified that..but they were persistent i must admit. We use Marriott villas exclusively for our vacation travels but was asked to give them a chance as an "owner" with an incredible deal. We agreed and again I specified "no high pressure sales while visiting as i am clearly NOT interested in buying but may possibly stay with this brand if the Marriott properties are not available when I need (im a procrastinator sometimes :) Westgate reps agreed to my request "once you arrive just let the FD agents know yoy are not interested. Upon arrival i had no idea what to expect...NONE! Have only stayed with Marriott. We werent greeted by valet or Concierge....so maybe i was asking too much. I reached the Westgate Owner line to check in and it was a very smooth process and when my reservation was being pulled up another agent stated I ensured you got your request of 2 double beds in the 2nd room, we stayed in the new tower on the 7th floor 2 bedroom 2 baths. Our suite was very nice! Our balcony was beachfront and my daughters room was partial beachfront. The suite was clean and we didnt need to ask for anything except how to accurately plug into their internet which included a long walk to the Front Desk. That was resolved. May I recommend to all of you to bring your beach towels...towels are a hot commodity here and sre very hard to come by!!! My only complaint. Second - obtaining an umbrella and chair complimentary as an "owner" was brutal. On our 3rd day and the nice gentleman from Concierge personally walked me to the correct area. After that ..we were set...that is ...until the high pressure sales calls started in our suite. I was very agitated as a result and I expressed my dismay with Tyree...not happy! He said if I didnt meet with him and sign off as "decline" i could run the risk of being double charged. I said "oh no" i dont think so. He however was very pleasant after i calmed down. I said you guys lost a guest as a result of not following thru with my request. The newer tower is very nice. AMENITIES are not what i am typically accustomed for it being a "resort". Pools are small and as well as the arcade but the location of the property is ideal in my opinion for the kids. For the most part i thoroughly enjoyed my stay until the high pressure sales tactics put a damper.
