Hyatt Residence Club Timeshare Vacation Packages at San Antonio Wild Oak Ranch & Bonita Springs Coconut Plantation

Good morning everyone.  If you are looking for a discounted vacation, check out these timeshare vacation packages from Hyatt Residence Club.  They should be open to anyone who meets the age and income requirements (differs by property).  In exchange for booking the discounted vacation package, you will be required to attend a 90-100 minute sales presentation.  I have attended several timeshare presentations over the years.  In most cases, I know more about hotels and loyalty programs than the person trying to sell the timeshare.  And remember, if they were as good a deal as they sound, why would you need a team of salespeople to sell properties.  Lastly, people will sell their current timeshare on eBay for as low as $1 just to get out of the deal.

With that said, here are 3 “Featured Vacation Offers” currently listed on the Hyatt Residence Club website.  The three properties are:

  • Hyatt Residence Club Maui, Ka’anapali Beach
  • Hyatt Residence Club San Antonio, Wild Oak Ranch
  • Hyatt Residence Club Bonita Springs, Coconut Plantation

Westin Mission Hills Resort & Villas Palm Springs Timeshare Vacation Package ($389 for 5 Days / 4 Nights + Freebies)

Good afternoon everyone, happy Friday.  If you are stuck in the cold, you might be thinking about taking a vacation to a warm, sunny destination.  Maybe Palm Springs crossed your mind with their warm, year-round climate.  Not to mention, this is the second weekend of Coachella, which is a short drive away.  I just received a timeshare vacation package offer in the mail for the beautiful Westin Mission Hills Resort & Villas in Palm Springs.  They have several beautiful photos of the resort, but here are just 2 that stood out to me.  The timeshare vacation package includes 5 days / 4 nights in a 1 bedroom villa, 2 tickets on the Palm Springs aerial tramway, and a $100 gift card to Pacifica Restaurant, a nearby restaurant serving steak and local dishes.  The cost of the timeshare vacation package?  Just $389, but if you don’t know when you want to go, a $200 down payment is all that is required.  The timeshare vacation package is addressed to me and includes a unique preferred invitation number, but if you want to participate in this offer, you can try calling or emailing the contact info on the letter.

Profiting from 2 Timeshare Presentations in Hawaii (Secret: Attend, but do not Buy!)

Full disclosure: I have only been to 3 timeshare presentations in my life (Hilton Elara in Las Vegas, Westin Ka’anapali Ocean Resort Villas in Maui, and Hilton Waikoloa Village in Kona), so I am no timeshare expert.  I am not married, so I go to the presentations by myself.  I have never gone to a presentation outside the US, but I have heard nightmare stories about timeshare presentations in Mexico lasting hours.  Proceed at your own risk!

Good morning everyone, greetings from my local Peet’s Coffee at the SF Ferry Building.  Between the pushy salespeople (usually a small sales team), lengthy presentations, and overpriced fees, timeshares get a bad rap in the travel community.  But, if you can sit through the presentation and leave without buying a timeshare, the sales presentation can be worth your time.  To illustrate this point, I want to tell you about my 2 timeshare presentations in Hawaii last week.

The first presentation was at the Westin Ka’anapali Ocean Resort Villas in Maui, Hawaii, where I was staying thanks to the targeted vacation package offer I received a few months back.  I wrote about the offer details here, but to recap, I received 6 days / 5 nights in a villa studio, 5,000 SPG points, and a 6 day Avis car rental for $798.  I value 5,000 SPG points at $100, the Avis car rental at $150, so that means the stay in the studio villa cost about ~$550 for 5 nights in Maui.  That’s a great deal if you ask me.  The property is very nice, I loved the $5 Mai Tais during happy hour (4-6pm and 8:30-10pm) and the pools were great.  Valet parking is only $12/day or $10/day for self parking.
