Bookvip Now Sapphire Riviera Cancun – Review 2022-3

Spend less, travel more … right?! If you like to make your vacation travel dollar stretch, then like us, you might find yourself thinking about a vacation package advertising offer. Know that these marketing trip plan companies are not at all equivalent.

After the let down of our current stay at the Cancun all inclusive through Premier Travel Resorts, I simply left the phone from attempting to book the remainder of our getaway plan with them (a long time in Florida). Let’s simply say that will not be happening. We are simply going to eat the cost and forget about it.

From here on out, we will be reserving holiday packages through BookVIP. If you click over to their website, you will see that it is full of the most inexpensive getaway plans to some of the most popular destinations.

Our first ever all inclusive experience was with BookVIP and it was amazing. Maybe the Dreams ruined us.

One fast note … We have only used BookVIP one time, at one luxury resort in Cancun. Reasoning tells me that not every resort getaway package is going to offer a similar experience. It actually is all going to boil down to the research you put in.

Investigating the properties offered on BookVIP can be a little bit of an obstacle. They do not promote the real name of the resorts. Rather, they use fake names. If you truly want to sleuth out the location you will be remaining a bit of investigative work on Google to match up the photos will expose the true identity of the property you are considering. We didn’t trouble going that far. There was lots of information on the BookVIP site to assist us feel comfy with making our booking.

What we enjoy about reserving with BookVIP? You are on your own schedule. No sales calls, no pressure. When you have actually done your research and you are ready, schedule. You will understand what you are getting. If the dates you want to travel are readily available, you understand ahead of time. There is time to compare the features and restaurants. This is a huge contrast to the advertising trip bundle sales calls I will talk about in the next area.

When you are all set to make your appointment with BookVIP, just be prepared for a few additional resort costs and taxes. In our case, part of the extra charge was to cover tips for the resort staff.

OUR EXPERIENCE WITH PREMIER TRAVEL RESORTS Bookvip Now Sapphire Riviera Cancun
In contrast to BookVIP, our experience with Premier Travel Resorts (out of Florida) was not the very best. If this had been our very first experience, we most likely would not have participated in another marketing offer. It was that bad.

Are you on the calling lists? After our first promotional resort stay, we started getting phone calls providing holiday bundles to various destinations. That is how we wound up with a vacation bundle including our newest Cancun all inclusive plus a couple short stays in Florida and in other places.

These travel sales calls are always a high-pressure circumstance unless you simply hang up. State no sufficient times and they will keep dropping the price to where it actually sounds like a good deal. There isn’t much time to investigate the holiday properties they are providing.

They drew us in with a stay in Cancun (which is convenient for us because of the distance to Belize) and a long time in Florida (hi, sailboat shopping!). We pulled the trigger and bought a plan. Utilizing it, that is an entire various story.

Premier Travel Resorts does not make it simple to actually utilize the vacation time. There is a great deal of fine print that makes travel planning really tough and possibly a lot more costly. They don’t expose these information during the sales call.

THIS IS WHAT YOU SHOULD BE PREPARED FOR …
You can only reserve your dates 45-90 days ahead of time if YOU PURCHASE A TRIP PLAN WITH PREMIER TRAVEL RESORTS. Okay, reasonable enough.

However, when you contact us to ask for your preferred dates, they require you to fill out a long type requiring all the details that they currently have. You then have to wait about a week to see if your dates are even offered. Unless your travel plans will only consist of your stay at their resort, this makes preparing the rest of your travel really troublesome.

Planning budget friendly flights, or readily available Airbnb remains in conjunction with your Premier Travel Resorts getaway package 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 returned to us.

Our package consisted of a stay in Orlando and a stay in Daytona Beach. Premier Travel Resorts requires that those stays be back to back or one month apart. In our case, utilizing them on either end of a business trip we had actually planned was not permitted.

We utilized the Cancun portion of our holiday bundle, but we will not be utilizing the rest of it.

THE BAIT AND SWITCH CANCUN ‘ALL INCLUSIVE’ THROUGH PREMIER TRAVEL RESORTS
The space was filthy, the toilet was chipped, the lights flickered, and that is just the beginning. You see, they put us up, not in one of the high-end residential or commercial properties that they wanted to offer us on, but rather at their ‘cemetary resort’. Seriously, that is what the people at the great home informed us they called it. For real.

Now, to be fair, Laguna Suites wasn’t all bad. The one restaurant that was consisted of in our ‘all inclusive’ (if you overlook the air conditioning unit dripping into our food) was actually a nice experience. They altered the menu every night, featuring foods from different parts of Mexico. And the personnel was incredible. Extremely friendly and accommodating. And really willing to assist us with our Spanish.

Once over the shock of the distinction in the type of place we believed we would be staying, we took advantage of it. We fulfilled some good people. Consumed some fantastic food. Took some great strolls on the golf course. And picked up our rental cars and truck a couple days early to go off and check out the area.

THE SALES PITCH
Both BookVIP and Premier Travel Resorts need that you go to a 90-120 minute sales pitch to get their affordable prices. No biggie. We feel like that is worth it.

Premier Travel Resorts, however, needs that you participate in a promotional presentation throughout each stay. When they sold us the bundle, this is various from what we were told. A two-hour sales pitch when you are remaining someplace for just 2 nights is a big piece of time. They sold us four different stays, that indicates approximately eight hours of reasonably high-pressure sales! No thanks.

OK, THAT’S IT FOR MY RANT
