I'm in the same boat as you i did for my wife she like alot that Vidanta and i wanna ride my bike across the country once a year and she hates motorcycle and now she is going to mexico with her friends and family and I'm riding му вike.
Happy wife / happy motorcycle bike life

As long as she & you use it / it is a "good deal"
I would suggest you don't go to a presentation & upgrade (spending more $) any time soon

FYI - we bought on Valentine's Day - then we deposited into RCI & let the deposits expire for 3 years.
Then we booked in Jan 2010 to go in Feb 2010 - only Sea Garden Mazatlan & Acapulco had space
We had a great vacation. My wife likes Puerto Vallarta best - so I had to learn that you have to plan ahead & book ahead
I started reading TUG to learn how to use better.

most of you here complaining about cost i dont care about spending 23k vs renting i am fine with current parks i dont need new hotels i dont need new parks i want to able go when i need to go and get set up not to be depending on other owners . We have big family lives around the world couple times we wanted to get together and Vdanta owners couldnt deliver promises insted of master suite they could only get studio and that was a big problem for us people had to cancel international flights and loose money

That will work fine as long you do not want to go from mid-January until after Easter. Those "extra" weeks are generally not allowed to be booked in those time frames.

We bought a total of 6 Registered weeks just because of what you said. We often needed 3 or 4 2-bedroom units at one time for our group. Then we wanted a couple just for ourselves. Then we could choose any time frame. We did have the 6 month reservation window with those, so every June 1 and August 1, I was making reservations for November and then February. We also had 6 "extra" weeks that we never used unless friends asked us to get them a week at one of the MP resorts. We did that a few times and sent them as our guests. They reimbursed us for the MF costs. We never asked for more money.

THere is nothing wrong with MP units. We love the MP in PV because of the location.

OK - can send you a Conversation PM tomorrow

We paid $ 16 K in 2006 / have used every year since 2010
I believe we paid $ 5 K down - balance in 30 days
Was there a cheaper route - (probably) - but at the time I knew very little.

So I spent the cost of a new car - but my wife is very happy going every year to Mexico
So am I . All good .
Happy wife, happy life, basically the same reason we bought Grand Mayan in 2012. the wife loved it.
