Avalon- tips for timeshare avoidance

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on August 20, 2006

We didn't stay here but we took the grand tour when we were okie-doked into a timeshare sales presentation with an incentive for a free lunch and a discounted golf cart rental. The place was a super nice all-inclusive type place and likely the largest on the island. I think it would be nice staying here but the timeshare sales staff is wandering around giving prospective 'buyers' like us tours and sales pitches all day, which would be a bit distracting if it were me who was staying there trying to relax. But for $100-200 USD per day for an all-inclusive (especially if you're a drinker...), this place is really nice and a fairly good deal. If you decide to go through with the timeshare sales pitch as we did (they call it a 'vacation club' and deny vehemently that it is a timeshare, but don't be mislead... ), make sure you dicker/deal with the sales guy on the street ahead of time to get the most premiums that you can. You should be able to get a free or $5/day golf cart rental, a free meal (on top of the freebie you get with the presentation), and a day pass for the hotel's pool, and definitely DO NOT give them any deposit money ahead of time- if you do and you absolutely HATE the 2+ hour presentation/ incarceration, and if you want to walk out you'll have to fight with them to get your 20 bucks back (and they won't give you the freebies they promised by the way). Just be warned- if you have never sat through a timeshare sales pitch, don't think it won't be painful. One more thing- If you tell them during the sales pitch that your brother already owns a timeshare and they hate it, the sales vultures won't be quite as relentless.

Unique Quality: Avalon is reached by a long wooden bridge just east of the north beach a few minutes walk from the middle of downtown. There is a nice beachside palapa bar which also faces the pool. The nicest thing about the whole place was the King's Pool, which is a natural tidepool on the east side which is protected from the waves and looks like a great place for kids to snorkel and feed the resident tropical fish). We toured the 2 bedroom swanky unit in the tower that overlooks the beach and villas below, which we also toured and found to be very spacious and modern with big bathrooms and decent sized kitchens with full-sized refrigerators and granite counters.

Directions: 5 minute walk northwest of downtown and North beach.
