Jungala is now open. Speculation was Jungala would not open for a month or so, based upon observations of work still to be finished. Looks as though that work was done quickly because the Water Park is now open. Looks very attractive and should be quite a draw. Stay tuned....

2019-06-28 Timeshare Contracts - Is there really a way out?

This article is written by Mr. Christopher Elliott, a consumer advocate. He writes articles designed to make consumers aware of hidden issues associated with the purchasing of items in many industries. This particular article provides his recommendations for getting out of timeshare contracts issued by resorts.

The article provides points we should all look at when we buy into a timeshare. It also highlights the benefits of contracts we all own that have been issued by Grupo Vidanta over the past ten years.

Although we all may have ownership issues at one time or another, one issue we don’t have to worry about is how we get out of them. They expire ten years after the activation date.

2019-06-24 Jungala - Not Open Yet - Testing Quality and Safety....

Although the original plan was to open on June 22, 2019, that did not happen in spite of the Travel Agent Central article that was posted on June 23, 2019 stating that the park was open. Likely, the authors were going off of earlier expectations, and they may have thought the park opened on time. Not a big issue. Better to be safe and high quality and late than not safe and low quality and on time. What do you think? Stay tuned....

2019-04-12 Riviera Maya Experience on TirpAdvisor:

Just returned from my 5th trip to Grande Luxxe since 2012 as an Interval trader.
Here are a few tips to help you enjoy your vacation:

1) Avoid the sales presentation at all costs, no matter what discounts, freebies or bargains they offer. They flatter then insult and degrade you if you refuse to buy — I have never felt so disrespected. It ruined my vacation. Better train your sales staff in respectful business practices and good manners.

2) Traders pay a "resort fee" depending on room size which will include an airport transport to the resort but not back. Read PG 2 of your confirmation. Return trip is $1360 pesos for a van which fits 5-8. Pay in pesos not dollars otherwise you get ripped off.

3) Main Pool Cabanas are reserved the day before at 7:30 AM and cost $25 US which is credited to food and drinks. Very busy. Don’t expect a shady place at main pools. Great Zumba at 10 AM and noon poolside and free kids' activities all day. Best food - drink service - in front of Havana Moon. Happy Hour is 12-2 PM= 2 for 1. Cocktails have virtually no alcohol; a lot of empty calories.

4) Grande Luxxe/Bliss Beach Club line is ridiculous. Get there before 9. Great if you have kids; incredible service.

5) If offered an upgrade, stay in an ODD numbered GL room. Otherwise you are on top of the 7:30 AM to 9:30 PM construction noise-- and it is loud --even with the AC and fans on. Like to sleep? Stay elsewhere. Waterslides they are building next to GL Jungle wont open till after June.

6) All restaurants, casual and elegant, are excellent. US prices, no bargains, but fresh and delicious selections esp the ceviche and Mexican favorites at Balche/Fridas. Try the crickets. Tramonto Italian is probably their finest; need a reservation.

7) The rooms are gorgeous, modern, very clean and extremely comfortable. Maid service twice a day. The employees are warm wonderful people. Treat them well.

8) Best place for an ocean swim is north of the resort where there is less coral and seaweed, near Valentin. Visit a different saltwater resort pool each day. There certainly are enough.

9) Dont miss the Flamenco night on the beach at Chiringuito Saturday nites with Natalia and her husband guitar player. Paella and sangria are amazing. New Salum is always fun anytime with hammocks and swings in the water. Try the tamales, and fresh fruit icepops and churros filled with creme for dessert. And of course, dont forget the traditional flan.

10) The transportation is a major problem. The trams/golfcarts can take forever. Wait is 5-20 minutes. Rides are long, windy and bumpy. Enjoy the iguanas and quatie (racoon/squirrel/mongoose, whatever!) with the two-foot brown tails. There are crocs at Greenbreak and flamingoes somewhere.

Enjoy your vaca, the beautiful Caribbean, and try to tune out the craziness.
Every little tip helps.
