Today I had a meeting with the sales manager of the Coconut Plantation property. I have stayed there as a guest for many years. I have also sat through two sales presentations but never had the desire to go any further. I had a few things I wanted to cover. The first was to see what their current inventory was, discuss resale, the Pure Points Program and the availability of the "limited country club membership" offered for an additional fee. This is something I am interested in since we live in close proximity to the resort. We would be able to use the facility on a daily basis with our family. I had found a unit for sale from a broker for an annual two bedroom at a low price. The sales manager gave me a document stating the club membership is only available if you purchase a timeshare through Hyatt. He showed me a unit for the week I was interested in. It was an Every Other Year that was $8000 more than the one I was looking at through resale. The resale was annual. I'm trying to decide if it's worth paying the extra money just to get the country club membership and possibly some Gold Passport incentive points for buying through Hyatt. I asked him about the Pure Points Program. My main concern from reading some posts was the availability of weeks at other Hyatt properties. He said that wouldn't be a problem, I'm not so sure! My wife and I are new to this and are hesitant as we no nothing about the Hyatt system (or any other). We like the thought of being able to trade a week to use at other Hyatt properties but I know it can be confusing.
