I would be interested to know if anyone has ever tried to assemble a Polo Towers owners' group.

I know Worldmark Owners have a site, and someone from Summer Bay in Las Vegas is starting an owners' website as well.

Does a Polo Towers owners' group exist, and if not, is there any interest in participating in a group like this at all?

100% increase in membership

We've officially doubled our membership in one day! (Ok, it is from one to two members). Any others interested?

If you count VPT, I'm in. Should be an official owner in the next couple of weeks... I know there are some different issues and there are separate boards, but ??? Maybe we could start as one group, then split off when the membership gets big enough (at this rate, it'll be soon!)

Assuming

Assuming we could get a large enough following to get started, what would we want on this site? For instance, just as ideas:

Recent sale prices of units from Clark County Registry of deeds?
Reports of anything of interest to other owners picked up by one of us at a recent visit, i.e. construction noise, changes at PT's?
Photos of interiors of units to see how they compare for wear and tear and/or views?
Units being remodeled ready/not ready on time if the assessment passes?
Getting AC's (or not) for deposits for certain weeks?
How construction is looking and sounding for Project City Center and the Cosmopolitan across the street?
Rumors section?
What we like about owning at PT's?
What problems we have with units/property management?

Could this/should this be handled on a separate website? Could/Should it be handled on TUG in the Western Forum?

There are some similar groups on Yahoo. I like all your topic suggestions. I think for owners only it should be a private group like on Yahoo if we can get enough interest.

We'd be interested as well. We own weeks in both the Suites and the Villa's. They might be different HOA's but they both share the same management team. For the most part the Villa's and Suites HOA'a seem to move lock-step with each other on most issues. It makes sense as they both share all the common area's of the building.

Count me in when you get this owner's group going! We love staying at Polo, but there are definitely some "issues" with this resort.

Sent a message to a moderator

Sent a message to a moderator here at TUG, asking about an owners forum section, similar to what's on Timeshareforums.com. The moderator explained they get a lot of requests like this, and if they started saying yes to these requests, the discussion boards would become too cumbersome with miscellaneous forums.

So, if we have interest, we could go to yahoo groups, or ask timeshareforums if they're interested in hosting our owners' group.

What do you think?

You can find more TUGgers who own at Polo Towers by clicking on "Users List" on the above blue bar, then on "Search Users" (on the right side of the page) and then on "Advanced Search". Then enter Polo in the "Resorts Owned" box and click on "Search Now".

A little off topic, but I am checking into the studio side next month.

Is it customary for owner to ask for an upgrade if available? has it ever been done? and did anyone had a success of upgrading?

Not At Summer Bay

I don't know of any owner from Summer Bay Resort at Las Vegas starting a website. I did one for short time, but closed it down.

Is there another owner starting one?

We were just there in a studio in March (over NASCAR weekend). We asked for a room change because of the view and not having the hide-away bed in the room they gave us. We arrived on a Saturday and made the request the next day. They were very good about moving us --but couldn't do it till Monday. It wasn't really an upgrade, but they did ask us if we WANTED an upgrade--so it must have been a possibility.
Good luck and enjoy

Upgrade

I don't really have an upgrade story, but we were quoted $55, $70, and $115 per night for studio/1 BR/ 2BR, for buying additional nights at Polo Towers. We added a Friday night prior to our normal Saturday check in.

Do you think I should phone before arrival and ask for an upgrade and view?

Is it possible? has any owner done it?

Can we trade our studio units with II yet??

I've been reading over my ownership documents since joining TUG and I just noticed that in our agreement signed in 2003, after they 'remodeled' we could exchange our studio unit as well in II. We've been operating under the idea that we can trade the whole unit (6 people) or the 1 bedroom (4 people) but not the studio. What remodel were they talking about then (the units are the same now as when we bought!) Is the remodel they were talking about then the one they are pushing now? (you know--the one that's going to cost us an extra, one time fee of 1200.00 that they'll take all at once or in three or four year installments) Then there was that whiole Hawian Market place thing??? My documents said that anyone buying after Jan 2003 (our date was Aug. 2003) would not be assessed for the 'upgrade' since it was built into our purchasing price. I'm so confused!

does that mean that if we own a two bedroom lock-off, we can trade a one bedroom for one week and a studio for another week?
