Will we have problems with people selling timeshares? We didn't last time we were in AC, but times change. In Mexico it has gotten so bad that we don't want to go there again. And it is not just one area. We have vacationed at quite a few areas and it is the same problem with timeshare sellers. And they will not take no for an answer. That does not make a relaxing vacation. Hopefully, we won't have problems or AC will be off our list of places to vacation at.

I was there last week and didnt get hassled at all. I was offered just about everything except for timeshare and no one was overly pushy. Just ignore them and they'll move on. If you pause and accept a brochure thats like an invitation to them.

Seven seas will try to sell you timeshares, and I believe there are a few others. There were a couple of obnoxious sales guys around town selling other things. So, yes, I believe you will find more of these types than in the past.

I agree with you, Aeriel, it's annoying to run into something that we are trying to get away from.

Just say no to the timeshare people and go on your way. Remember they are only trying to make some money to survive like all the rest of us. They are not bad people.

But there are some people that are bad that sell timeshares. We have had them lie to us, telling us that our tour had been cancelled, so why not see the timeshare. Saying no did not work. They got very rude and annoying.

When the timeshares first started on the island most people did not understand it, especially the local sales representatives. As it has evolved the sales men see how easy it is to make money. They get paid for each couple that visits their resort whether they buy or not.

Now you see them all over the place even on golf cart stopping any person they see. I think it has gotten out of hand and I feel terrible for the people who come here to relax because they get bothered at any opportunity. The good part is that most of them leave you alone the minute you say NO! Aeriel please don't be discouraged by them, the island is beautiful and it would be a shame if you miss out on it.

Captain Morgan's has timeshare booths at Fido's Courtyard and Mango's (on the beach).

They also have a European couple and a young guy (with a doo rag his head) on golf carts that stop you in the street to invite you for a timeshare presention.

Watch out for the free week you "win" when you draw a ticket out of the bag, everyone wins.

that's funny, a couple staying at Seven Seas when we were there "won" a free night at Seven Seas or a week or whatever and thought they were the luckiest people alive.......know we know...

Bzedoll and others,
We have been at Ac before and will be returning in Oct. We wanted to be prepared about the timeshare problem, if there is one. If this problem is as bad as areas in Mexico, we won't be returning to AC after our Oct. visit. Last time in AC we didn't get "timeshared" at all and we stayed at the Seven Seas. It was the most relaxing vacation that we had in a long time. Hopefully, the Oct. vacation will be, too.

We were in Belize July 3-10 for the first time. We walked by the blue hut on the beach next to Fido's on the beach ( I think the location is correct). Met Kenny, a big personable black guy who was charming. We said "no" to seeing Captain Morgans for 5 days but finally agreed to when he told us he would get $50 if we went and he needed the money for his 4 year old son. We should have listened to our instincts. Our experience with Captain Morgans time share has been unpleasent to put it kindly. Warning- look long and hard before buying. There was a great deal of misrepresentation in our case.
