We just got back from a few days over the kid's spring break. We stayed in
Tower Two becasuse we wanted to see their refurbishment. My wife and I both thought they did an excellent job. At least the floor and unit we stayed had new carpeting, granite counters, and new furniture for a start. The beds,even the sofa pullout, were exremely comfortable. The linens were also an upgrade.

The resort was at capacity and I have to say they appear to get better at the management everytime we go. The resort is really looking good and well managed as far as we are concerned.

This trip was really important for us on a personal level. I went into th hospital on the 8th of Feb. Turned-out I had 3 small strokes. I have fully recovered and returned to work late last month. On quite alot of meds now considering prior it was an 81mg ASA and a MVI. Around Christmas I was talking with some friends and one said, "A healthy person has a thousand wishes and an unhealthy person has one". I feel really fortunate not only for myself, but for my family as well.

I am so fortunate.

Glad to hear things are looking up for you! If you don't have your health, you have nothing....

Best wishes for you and your family.

There is a post here somewhere that a sales rep at an "update" was badmouthing Bonnet Creek, recommending divesting points there and purchasing at the other resort. Reminds me of the Yogi-ism, "Nobody goes there anymore. It's too crowded."

Until there is a rip in the fabric of time, Bonnet Creek will be a thriving resort. I'm happy to own 1.5 million PresRes points there.

I remember when I was very young, the scandles involving worthless property in Flordia. I wish my parents fell for some of those. The current kick at National Harbor is to bad month ownership in Myrtle Beach. There bases for this is that they know all three areas and sell the Myrtle Beach timeshares, the Bonnett Creek timeshares, and the National Harbor Timeshares.

good to hear about the upgrades, and even better to hear about your recovery. As the PP so eloquently put it, ” enjoy your new lease on life” indeed

Funny thing is these same guys probably sold SeaWatch, Ocean Boulevard, and Bonnet Creek and now they are at National Harbor dissing the places the helped sell. How did those places get so bad, so fast?

Maybe they did not get the incentive to sell their properties. I know when I was in high pressure sales contests were commen to get a prize for whatever the contest in progress was. It was just a way of doing business in the firm I was with.
