Bookvip Secrets Punta Cana – Review 2022-3

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

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

From here on out, we will be booking trip bundles through BookVIP. Here’s why …

Definitely, you have actually seen the Facebook sponsored posts. If you click over to their site, you will see that it has lots of the most inexpensive trip packages to some of the most popular destinations. They have some seriously glamorous looking stays all over the world at some crazy good costs.

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

One quick note … We have actually just used BookVIP one time, at one luxury resort in Cancun. Logic tells me that not every resort trip bundle is going to provide a similar experience. It actually is all going to come down to the research you put in.

They do not market the actual name of the resorts. If you truly desire to sleuth out the location you will be staying a bit of investigative work on Google to match up the pictures will reveal the true identity of the property you are thinking about. There was plenty of info on the BookVIP website to help us feel comfy with making our reservation.

You understand ahead of time if the dates you want to travel are readily available. There is time to compare the dining establishments and facilities. This is a huge contrast to the promotional trip plan sales calls I will talk about in the next area.

Just be prepared for a couple of additional resort costs and taxes when you are all set to make your reservation with BookVIP. Our $599 for 5 days/4 nights at a Cancun all inclusive cost around $720 after everything was said and done. In our case, part of the service charge was to cover suggestions for the resort staff. After the experience we had, we found this to be well worth it.

OUR EXPERIENCE WITH PREMIER TRAVEL RESORTS Bookvip Secrets Punta Cana
In contrast to BookVIP, our experience with Premier Travel Resorts (out of Florida) was not the very best. If this had been our first experience, we likely would not have taken part in another promotional deal. It was that bad.

Are you on the calling lists? After our first promotional resort stay, we started getting telephone call providing getaway packages to various destinations. That is how we wound up with a getaway package including our latest Cancun all inclusive plus a couple brief remain in Florida and elsewhere.

These travel sales calls are constantly a high-pressure circumstance unless you just hang up. State no enough times and they will keep dropping the price to where it in fact sounds like a good deal. There isn’t much time to look into the holiday properties they are using.

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 (hey there, sailboat shopping!). So we shot and purchased a plan. However utilizing it, that is a whole different story.

Premier Travel Resorts does not make it easy to actually utilize the vacation time. There is a great deal of fine print that makes travel preparation very hard and possibly a lot more costly. They don’t reveal these details during the sales call.

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

When you call to ask for your preferred dates, they need you to fill out a long kind needing all the details that they currently have. You then need to wait about a week to see if your dates are even readily available. Unless your itinerary will just consist of your stay at their resort, this makes planning the rest of your travel really bothersome.

Planning economical flights, or readily available Airbnb remains in combination with your Premier Travel Resorts trip plan is really hard. 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 plan consisted of a stay in Orlando and a stay in Daytona Beach. Premier Travel Resorts requires that those stays be back to back or thirty days apart. In our case, using them on either end of a company journey we had actually planned was not enabled.

We used the Cancun portion of our vacation bundle, however we will not be utilizing the rest of it.

THE BAIT AND SWITCH CANCUN ‘ALL INCLUSIVE’ THROUGH PREMIER TRAVEL RESORTS
The space was dirty, the toilet was broken, the lights flickered, which is just the beginning. You see, they put us up, not in one of the high-end homes that they wished to sell us on, but rather at their ‘cemetary resort’. Seriously, that is what the guys at the good residential or commercial property told us they called it. For real.

The one dining establishment that was included in our ‘all inclusive’ (if you neglect the air conditioner leaking into our food) was really a great experience. They changed up the menu every night, including foods from various parts of Mexico. And very willing to assist us with our Spanish.

Twice the shock of the difference in the sort of place we thought we would be staying, we took advantage of it. We met some good individuals. Consumed some great food. Took some nice walks on the golf course. And picked up our rental car a couple days early to go off and check out the location.

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

Premier Travel Resorts, however, needs that you attend a marketing discussion throughout each stay. This is different from what we were informed when they offered us the plan.

OK, THAT’S IT FOR MY RANT
