Bookvip 4 Diamond Cabo – Review 2022-3

Invest less, take a trip more … right?! If you like to make your trip travel dollar stretch, then like us, you might find yourself thinking about a holiday bundle promotional deal. Know that these marketing getaway package companies are not at all equal.

After the let down of our current stay at the Cancun all inclusive through Premier Travel Resorts, I simply left the phone from trying to schedule the rest of our holiday bundle with them (a long time in Florida). Let’s just state that will not be occurring. We are just going to eat the expense and forget about it.

From here on out, we will be booking vacation bundles through BookVIP. If you click over to their website, you will see that it is full of the least expensive getaway bundles to some of the most popular locations.

Our first ever all inclusive experience was with BookVIP and it was fantastic. Perhaps the Dreams spoiled us.

One quick note … We have actually just utilized BookVIP one time, at one high-end resort in Cancun. Logic tells me that not every resort trip bundle is going to provide a comparable experience. It actually is all going to boil down to the research you put in.

They don’t market the real name of the resorts. If you truly want to sleuth out the place you will be staying a bit of investigative work on Google to match up the images will reveal the real identity of the home you are considering. There was plenty of information on the BookVIP website to help us feel comfortable with making our appointment.

What we like about scheduling with BookVIP? You are on your own schedule. No sales calls, no pressure. Schedule when you have actually done your research and you are ready. You will know what you are getting. You know ahead of time if the dates you wish to travel are available. There is time to compare the dining establishments and amenities. This is a huge contrast to the advertising holiday package sales calls I will speak about in the next area.

When you are prepared to make your booking with BookVIP, simply be prepared for a couple of extra resort charges and taxes. In our case, part of the additional charge was to cover suggestions for the resort personnel.

OUR EXPERIENCE WITH PREMIER TRAVEL RESORTS Bookvip 4 Diamond Cabo
In contrast to BookVIP, our experience with Premier Travel Resorts (out of Florida) was not the best. We extremely likely would not have actually taken part in another advertising deal if this had been our first experience. It was that bad.

Are you on the calling lists? After our very first advertising resort stay, we started getting telephone call offering vacation packages to different locations. That is how we wound up with a holiday plan including our most recent Cancun all inclusive plus a couple short remain in Florida and elsewhere.

These travel sales calls are constantly a high-pressure scenario unless you simply hang up. Say no adequate times and they will keep dropping the rate to where it in fact seems like a good deal. It is required that you do so before the end of the phone call if they record your interest and you choose to purchase. There isn’t much time to investigate the trip residential or commercial properties they are providing. You may have a few seconds to quickly pull up some photos however that is about it. A photo is worth a thousand words, however unworthy almost as much as being able to check out a few evaluations.

They drew us in with a remain in Cancun (which is convenient for us because of the proximity to Belize) and a long time in Florida (hey there, sailboat shopping!). So we pulled the trigger and bought a package. Using it, that is an entire different story.

Premier Travel Resorts does not make it simple to actually use the holiday time. There is a lot of small print that makes travel planning extremely challenging and possibly a lot more pricey. They don’t expose these details during the sales call.

IF YOU BUY A HOLIDAY PACKAGE WITH PREMIER TRAVEL RESORTS, THIS IS WHAT YOU MUST BE PREPARED FOR …
You can only schedule your dates 45-90 days ahead of time. Okay, reasonable enough.

Nevertheless, when you contact us to request for your preferred dates, they require you to submit a long kind requiring all the information that they already have. You then need to wait about a week to see if your dates are even available. Unless your travel plans will only consist of your remain at their resort, this makes planning the rest of your travel really inconvenient.

Planning budget friendly flights, or available Airbnb stays in combination with your Premier Travel Resorts getaway bundle is extremely challenging. In our case, the Airbnb we wanted to stay at after our stay at the resort was reserved by the time Premier Travel Resorts got back to us.

Our bundle included a remain in Orlando and a stay in Daytona Beach. Premier Travel Resorts needs that those stays be back to back or thirty days apart. So, in our case, utilizing them on either end of an organization trip we had actually planned was not permitted.

We utilized the Cancun portion of our getaway package, however we will not be utilizing the rest of it.

THE BAIT AND SWITCH CANCUN ‘ALL INCLUSIVE’ THROUGH PREMIER TRAVEL RESORTS
You see, they put us up, not in one of the luxury properties that they wanted to sell us on, however rather at their ‘cemetary resort’. Seriously, that is what the men at the nice property informed us they called it.

Now, to be fair, Laguna Suites wasn’t all bad. The one dining establishment that was included in our ‘all inclusive’ (if you ignore the ac system leaking into our food) was actually a great experience. They altered the menu every night, featuring foods from various parts of Mexico. And the personnel was fantastic. Extremely friendly and accommodating. And really ready to help us with our Spanish.

Once over the shock of the difference in the sort of place we thought we would be remaining, we maximized it. We satisfied some nice individuals. Consumed some fantastic food. Took some great strolls on the golf course. And got our rental vehicle a couple days early to go off and check out the location.

THE SALES PITCH
Both BookVIP and Premier Travel Resorts require that you attend a 90-120 minute sales pitch to get their discounted prices. No biggie. We seem like that is worth it.

Premier Travel Resorts, however, requires that you attend an advertising presentation throughout each stay. This is various from what we were informed when they sold us the bundle.

OK, THAT’S IT FOR MY TIRADE
