My husband and I "won" a trip through Bass Pro to a Bluegreen timeshare adn we chose Orlando. We had to postpone the trip 3 times and they were always very nice.
We finally mad the trip and booked within the timeframe to receive an upgrade and we stayed at the Fountains Resort. We absolutely LOVED the resort. My husband, son and I checked in on Friday, our room was ready by 1:00pm, not 4. Saturday we had to go to the presentation.
It did take longer than expected but we were showing interest. The initial presentation was about an hour and interesting and entertaining. Then came the salesman. We asked him to please skip the tour, as we were staying there and had already familiarized ourselves with it and wanted to enjoy our time as much as possible.
(And we had an antsy 5 year old, though, they did have a daycare during the most of it, which was nice). When it came to money, is where our problem came. We couldn't afford the down payment and they kept pulling packages out of nowhere, yet they weren't listening to my husband say "We cannot afford a down payment today." They just kept coming with, "Well, here's another package." But it still had a large downpayment. The salesmans solution was "put it on a credit card." Hello!
So when my husband said Yeah, but you still have to pay that off and we're not going to put something like this on a card. We save those for emergencies, they were just appalled and their attitude just went totally to well, I guess we can't do anything for you, goodbye. But the rest of our trip was great. The Fountains was great; the pool there is awesome, the rooms were very nice and we had an awesome time in Orlando.
You don't get maid service but you don't get that at most extended stay, condo type places. We won the inital accomodations adn part of that was a free Carnival cruise after we complete the timeshare portion. We've been home for 2 weeks and upon checkout were told we'd get our cruise info in a week but haven't yet.
So hopefully they don't try to rip us off with that. My husband and I never got a honeymoon and are really looking forward to it.
