Time share parasites

Bad (2.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on June 17, 2007

I have to say that the food and all you can drink all-inclusive plan were great. Unfortunately, the negative aspects of our trip outweighed what should have been a great time.
We cleared customs at the airport and had to wade through a sea of "time share sales sharks". Upon arriving at the Royal Solaris we soon found out that our "personal representative" Hector was no more than a high pressure salesman for R.S. V.I.P. membership/ time share sales. We decided to go on foot to a nearby supermarket (MEGA) and were approached once on the street and twice in the store with more time share sales pitches. All of this within the first 36hrs of our arrival. We figured out that Sunday was the ideal day to venture since most of the locals were off work. We managed to get some great deals on souvenirs. Don't pay the exorbitant prices at the Royal solaris gift shops! The day before we left we went on the Caborey snorkeling trip. We paid for this out of pocket but it was worth the money. The worst part of the snorkeling trip was our hotel departure. Hector, our personal representative had mentioned that "if we had any questions about anything to contact him." Since we weren't members, there was no pre-arranged transportation for the snorkeling trip so I asked Hector "What bus should we board?" He replied "Oh, you paid for this trip? If you were members this would have been free." Then he proceeded to go back into his sales pitch. Needless to say, I was getting more than a little annoyed at this point. I replied "I told you no, once already. Just tell us which bus to get on!" We went on vacation to relax and wound up being stressed out on several occassions. Royal Solaris was our first experience with an all-inclusive resort and with a resort of this size. I had never been an adult field trip with 200 of my closest friends. This is the nature of the excursions from the Royal Solaris. Sadly, since our return home i've been told by several people that Peurta Vallerta and Cancun are no different.

Unique Quality: The oceanview rooms are worth the extra money however, by Royal Solaris' definition not the same as oceanfront. They are reserved for members only. Unless you are booking adjoining rooms, ask for one without the door in between. You'll be able to hear everything going on next door. Before making reservations, try to find out if there are any sales meetings, business conferences or things of this nature occuring during your stay. Reef (the flip-flop/ beachwear people) were having a sales meeting during our stay and several dinner shows in the on-site theatre were cancelled or relocated to the lobby. Two of the on-site restaurants were also closed for private dinners (Reef sales associates only or V.I.P. Royal Solaris members only) on different occasions. This is a great place to stay if you are a Royal Solaris member or an RCI member. If you are neither, you'll feel like a second-class citizen here. We won't be back. If you decide to go anyway, when it comes to time share presentations and membership offers just say "No thank you/No gracias." By the way, the 1 1/2 hour presentations will be more like 3 hours.

Royal Solaris Membership Rip-Off

by written on February 10, 2007

My husband and I had a wonderful time at Royal Solaris with our friends who went too. We highly recommend it as a place to stay BUT DO NOT JOIN! Luckily we only bought the 3 year "trial" membership. By the time they added on "escrow fees" and such, it was almost $5000. Since I'm a teacher we only travel the week of Spring Break and a week at Christmas. We went to book next Christmas and found that the cost of our food and beverages for the week is $2058.00. Airfare for us is another $620 per person for a total of $3278. We can book the same vacation as NON-MEMBERS for $2374 including airfare. What a rip-off to have a membership! Does anyone know what I can do to get this message out to more people?
