Posted on: December 19, 2012 at 8:36PMthought I had gotten a great deal when I traveled to Cancun Mexico and bought a timeshare (this was my second timeshare purchase) to the beautiful Palace Resorts Premier organization. I guess it's all in the way that you look at it. Palace Resorts offers some of the most beautiful five star properties in Mexico. I have a hard time deciding which one of their properties is my favorite. Moon Palace Resort is huge, boasting over 2,000 deluxe jacuzzi rooms. Their lobby entrance is grand, decorated with marble columns, marble floors so clean you could even eat off of them, and gorgeous stained glass ceilings. The lobby is bustling with excitement and visitors are scurrying to and from the 12 on-site restaurants, shops, and spa facilities. You really couldn't ask for a more wonderful vacation resort. Then there is my personal favorite, the Playacar Palace Resort. Playacar has about 200 modern and beautifully appointed deluxe jacuzzi rooms. The view is spectacular as you look out over the blue greens of the Mexican caribbean sea. Off in the distance faintly, you can see the island of Cozumel and at night, the island's twinkling lights. Just to your left, the ferry boats maintain their busy schedule taking tourists and local workers to and from the island of Cozumel many times throughout the day. If you are a shopper, you will love Playacar as the famous 5th Avenue shops are right around the corner from the resort. There is a huge local Mexican marketplace right beside it. The famed Froggy's sits right on Playacar's small, but white powder sugary sand beach. The pools and swim up bar are ever so relaxing. The service is second to none anywhere I have traveled. I could go on and on, and maybe now you can see why I purchased my timeshare. But the point to all of this is vacation discounts. Now that I have purchased way too many weeks for me and my family to use in both of our lifetimes, I sell the use of my VIP membership on Ebay. That is a great deal for you, the vacationer, as you get all of my benefits and save $700 or more off of your deluxe jacuzzi room while getting a free manicure, pedicure, massage and free unlimited tours and so much more. You will have an excellent vacation taking advantage of using my VIP discount. But that's not all. I recently joined a travel membership club that, had I known existed before purchasing my timeshare, hands-down, I would not have purchased my timeshare. Here's why. My Palace Resorts Timeshare is an excellent timeshare. I know what I am going to get when I travel and I know I am getting the best value for my money. I have to be honest with you though. It was very very expensive. The downpayment was expensive and now the monthly payments on top of that are very expensive. I even have my whole timeshare up for sale, along with selling the use of my membership weeks on Ebay. Here's why I have it up for sale. I joined a travel membership club. When I took a look at this membership club and saw that they were negotiating with Palace Resorts to get just about the same discounted rates (not the same vip membership benefits but just a little bit higher cost than my own vip membership WITHOUT having to join the timeshare), I almost fell off of my computer chair. In fact, this membership club offers timeshare travel to four and five star resorts (over 5,000 of them worldwide), and deep discount cruises and airfare discounts, without having to pay the extraordinary charges associated with a timeshare, to numerous resorts I had already been to. I knew the quality of the resorts they were offering and it took me about a half hour and I became a member. Having owned two timeshares, I immediately saw the value in this club membership and knew I would never buy another timeshare again during my lifetime. I could not believe that they even have what are called "hot weeks" to five star resorts for $298 per week! The most they ever charge is $698 for a week for a family of up to four. And, they were offering to give members a chance to tell others about their club and if they did, and someone joined, they could earn up to $1,000 over and over again. It does seem to be too good to be true, but now I have something else I can pass along to my children and family members that will allow them to save literally thousands upon thousands of dollars when they go on vacation. In conclusion, you have two new discount vacation options open to you. . . you can rent my timeshare week on Ebay which is a great deal (remember, I paid all of the timeshare costs so you don't have to) by paying to use my VIP membership number or you can find out more information about joining one of the best travel clubs on the planet today, backed by 20 years of success, and save yourself and your family a small fortune in the process.
