Research and Know Before You Go! We loved Sunset!

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on January 12, 2007

We are very happy with our timeshare and will be extending it, possibly buying into the resort. There are three things that I would mention before you decide to go to any resort that offers timeshares:

Write and send a letter to the resort, confirming your stay and that you do not wish to be contacted by a timeshare representative. Keep a copy and give it to the timeshare office when you arrive. Do not converse, be in a hurry. If anyone approaches you tell them to check with the office or make several copies of the letter to hand out. We were very happy with the free benefits that go with this timeshare. Use of the facilities in Cancun and other Sunset localities is nice. We checked it out in advance, however and knew the bartering rules.

If you are interested, look on the internet for discounted timeshares and check in to that resort to look it over. If you are satisified, buy the discounted timeshare and tell the representative that you already own a timeshare in their group.

The last , but most important, have enough money to not only buy into the timeshare, but to use it regularly. If you are strapped for cash or may be in the future, a timeshare is not for you.

Unique Quality: It is a lovely place to take small children. They have a nice children's pool and activities.

It is located at the end of a gated high end (1m +) community. It is a short walk along the community's coastal, cobbled road to the town of Playa and there are several Myan ruins along the way.

Playa is right across from Cozumel, a forty minute boat ride, and about an hour from Tulum and Cancun. Outside of Playa is a new highway that is an easy drive. We rented a car and enjoyed our stay a great deal. Be sure to check out all the car rental facilities first. Rates are not the same and sometimes you can barter a free show or dinner. We rented from a major chain because we felt safer with the company.

We felt that food in the resort was rather high, so we shopped for food at Wal-Mart, and fixed our own meals most of the time.

Avoid the Time Share Salespeople

by written on May 15, 2006

We were lured into a 90-minute sales presentation by a representative of this hotel with promise of a complimentary breakfast and free tickets for a local tour. Four and a half hours of high pressure sales tactics later we owned a time share with Sunset Fishermen's Spa & Resort. A brief web search on this resort will yield a plethora of complaints and problems of a fraudulent nature with this resort and its parent company the Sunset Group.

We are a couple months into a battle to cancel the contract and obtain a refund. To this end we have enlisted the help of several U.S. and Mexican Federal agencies. It's not a company one wants to invest in.

The best course of action is to avoid the possibility of this circumstance all together and stay away from Sunset Fishermen's Resort.
