J and I are just now (after being married two years) gearing up to plan and take our honeymoon. It feels weird to even call it that, but we need a vacation in the worst way. We put off going anywhere because I was laid off 3 months prior to the wedding and had just gotten a new job. He didn't have PTO available either, so we just said 'eventually' to the whole honeymoon idea. The time has come.
I am really only considering all-inclusive resorts in Mexico (Cancun, Cozumel or Cabo), and have been pricing everything out through every site imaginable. The other day, I found a site that was offering 5 nights in Cancun/Riviera Maya, all inclusive for $399 for 2 people. The resort looks amazing (Villa Del Palmar), but as I dig deeper I found out that this is a timeshare hotel and part of the discounted pricing is that you have to commit to a 90 minute timeshare presentation on the first day. In our case, this discounted price would save us over $400 for the whole vacation. Would you do it?
We attended a TS presentation before at a company in Richardson, and it wasn't too bad. I guess I feel bad because we would go into it with absolutely no intention of getting a timeshare there, but would be taking full advantage of the discounted rate.
