    I’ve read reviews on other sites where visitors were treated poorly by turning down the time share folks. Will my stay be sub par if I choose not to get a membership? What will I miss out on besides premium alcohol?

    Absolutely not just say I'm not interested with a nice smile, direct eye contact and then walk away. When you get to your room unplug the the phone.

    Our first two visits we opted out of the sales spill and had a great time. We were treated no differently than other guests who attended the sales pitch. The third trip we went on a referral and had to go to the sales meeting. We didn't buy that time either and still treated the same. Our fourth trip there we bought a membership and still are treated the same buy the staff. The only difference since we bought in is we have a few extra choices at the restaurants and bars and have access to the member only areas. And we have had to payless for our stays since buying in mostly because on several stays we have got free room upgrades and spa discounts.

    On 10 trips we’ve never sat through the sales
    pitch. Most of the time we get a little pushing and then they take no with a smile and shrug. Once or twice the staff has gotten rude when we refuse. Even then though, a snarky comment is all, the rest of our trip had never been effected

    Our first trip two years ago we said “no” at check-in. The didn’t pressure us at all, and it was dropped. It was a complete non isssue.

    Last trip we had to go in a referral, they messed up, and never contacted us about a presentation, so that was painless as well. So we have had no isssues in two trips.

    we have gone several times no one was every rude to us ..they got pushy once but when we pointed it out it stopped
    we did the sales pitch once laughed at them cause they couldn't beat our prices .. went this last time on a referral so did the pitch again and actually bought in
    no matter if we went or not or were premier or not ..we have always been treated amazingly well ..its one of the reasons we go back

    No...but they will keep trying. To the point that it is annoying. Also they hate it when you call it a time share...so if you want to see them get frustrated while not leaving you alone just keep calling it a timeshare.

    We/I were harrassed every morning. To the point where I was avoiding the lobby and taking the long way.

    I founded them to be far more pushy since the reopening...I will confess we did it and enjoyed the couples massage and lobster dinner promo...and had no intention of signing anything...but yeah it was annoying you couldn’t even make it through the the lobby

    It appears that there is a great inconsistency with whom the bother and don’t!
    This can be seen by the trip reports.

    We have never had an issue.
    I suppose because I am mean looking, drool from the mouth, run snot from my nose, dress like a hobo, and speak in tongues as I walk through the lobby...even when alone!
    I also burst out with Tourettes screeming at the floor and ceiling anc occassionally break out a Broadway song and dance routine.
    I also told them I was unemployed and poor;)
    My guess is they just dont want my kind around:D
    Try it and see if it works for you too.

    Seriously though the inconsistency appears to be the way as in the dress code enforcement, closing times, security clamp down on some fun...and on some people, etc.

    We stayed in the tower last April. Rather than walk through the lobby (where the timeshare people were eager to greet us every morning). When exiting the elevator we used the hallway that goes to the Hibachi restaurant, cut across at the coffe bar and avoided the sales people everytime.
