If you are looking at the Hotel, The Wyndham Grand, Keep in mind that MANY of the details here are regarding the Timeshare Resort. The Hotel has different room types and some additional charges/fees which they charge above the room rate.

I like the idea of being close to the action
I had to buy another piece of luggage today and shoes and a floppy hat
The camping trip got a little hairy

Hope this helps.

This looks just like the "porch" at Beach Club! You can walk out onto the patio, but the shrubery makes it impossible to climb or walk through..believe me..my very resourcelful children tried to find a weakness and never could

I think if it were an emergency you could squeeze through the bushes but would get pretty scratched up. Not sure, but that's what it looks like in the picture.

Have we talked about the activities and which ones are better than others? We will have 4 kids - 2, 5, 8 and 10YO. What did your kids find enjoyable?

regarding the shuttles...

Coming down in July and wondering if the shuttles will be crowded (especially for the first bus returning in the afternoon). What happens when there are too many people to hop on a shuttle? Does this ever happen? Do they rotate in additional buses, or do you just wait for the next one? Seeing the intervals during the afternoon, it seems like it could take a while to get back to the resort.

We'll have a car, but want to find out as much as possible just in case we opt for a shuttle one morning.

Vacation Strategy quoted me $151/night for 5 nights in July in a 1 bedroom deluxe or $175 for 2 bedroom. I thought I had read earlier that less than 60 days out was about $100-120 - or am I wrong about that?

Any other suggestions on who to rent from for less?

Also, I think I read somewhere once that there is a law that limits how long they can keep you in these "meetings". Is this true?
We were there probably about 30 - 40 minutes. I'm not sure about a law limiting the time. We were amazed how many people we met down by the pool who had purchased more points during their "updates".

We spent a ton of time at the pools. (My kids are 8 and 10.) My son really wanted to play mini golf, but we never got around to it. We spent a few hours one day "pool hopping" around the resort. My 8 year old son was obsessed with the pirate slide, while my 10 year old dd preferred the open slide at buildings 2/3 and swimming at the Grand's pool. I like the main pool the best!

Thanks for that...I am surprised that you got that much for such a short presentation. Were they very pushy? I think DH is gonna want to do this if they offer enough incentive, I just wonder if you didn't get lucky? And I agree, people need to do some research before they agree to buy from the developer. Whether it's their first purchase or to add on it doesn't matter.....just look at ebay! We bought ours for a song....so far we have been happy with it and we haven't even explored the option of trading into RCI yet.

Thanks again for the info!

Hi. Just reported on another thread but thought that I would add it here. I'm currently in Tower Two. They installed WIFI yesterday and it is up and running. .

Enjoy your planning!
