Has anyone heard of the Vidanta Empire Estates? Supposedly under construction and all will have Ocean views?
I have heard of the Estates, but not Empire Estates.
You better get the guaranteed Ocean Views in writing or you will not get it. Also, if it is not built yet, things can change and those units might not have ocean views. Most people were told that the DeLuxxe units were all going to be ocean views and now we are hearing that is not true. There are folks who paid for the Kingdom of the Sun and other buildings in the new park that is not open. They got so many uses of the Park for their 1st 10 years and now it is time for their renewal and they have not gotten to stay there yet.
We have owned since 1999 and progressed from Sea Garden, to Mayan Palace, to Grand Mayan and then to Grand Luxxe and are happy with what we have. There is no need for us to go to an "update" because we do not plan to give them any more money. We can go 2 weeks a year in GL or do 4 weeks in Grand Bliss or Grand Mayan. We have not invested nearly as much as you are talking about. We could have gone 6 or more weeks any year if we had wanted to pay the User Fees for both our Registered and Residence weeks. But generally the Residence weeks cannot be used February - April. When we still lived in Kansas, they did not have GL, so we used 2 of our 4 MP and 2 GM weeks to spend the month of February in Mexio. Now that we live in AZ, we go at Thanksgiving and family joins us.
We already have reservations in Acapulco, Puerto Penasco, and Nuevo in 2023. Because ACA & PP do not have Grand Luxxe, we were able to split one of our weeks into a 2-bedroom GM in ACA and a 1-bedroom GM in PP. Then we have 1 week in GL 2-bedroom unit in NV.
