August 21, 2015 — Do not prejudge the title! But so help me God I thought I was going to vomit after I painfully endured a video that a sales guest recorded leading up to the timeshare sales presentation he and another person were attending in Puerto Penasco, Mexico (aka Rocky Point and/or Arizona’s Beach). This video was filmed at the Laguna Shores Resort (LSR) sales center and it demonstrates, in part, why LSR just can’t get their timeshare act together.
So Here’s The Scoop: If you visit the LSR website it would appear they are no longer selling slices of Paradise and from what I understand along with other ‘issues’ surrounding the property LSR has started and closed down their TS marketing and sales operation several times over the past decade. The Sept. 2014 video you are about to watch should be a good indication as to why LSR has severe timeshare marketing and selling ‘problemos’.
Of course that will be for the viewer to decide. But I’ve seen many poorly run and operated TS marketing and sales operations throughout the world over the past few decades and this one just might be the worst one within our great global industry.
You should watch this, especially any developer whose sales centers are underperforming because the flat out truth of the matter is that way too many timeshare projects operate, in whole or in part, in a similar manner.
But I caution everyone. Make sure if you take high blood pressure meds or are in need of sedatives, etc. that you have those within an arm’s reach because you will most assuredly need some if you can get through the entire 17 minutes and 26 seconds of pure timeshare hell.
And if you can’t make it all the way till the end at least make it to the beginning of the “survey phase”. I promise you it will be well worth your time, though you will be appalled, stunned, dismayed and outright horrified at what you’ll witness during this portion of what is supposed to be part of the discovery ‘time’.
Oh, and when I say the “survey phase” I’m talking about the one all of us are familiar with, as it seems that LSR has two others that the sales guest must endure before they get to the 3rd one – the one I’m talking about!
So, without further ado I sadly present to you the first part of a Laguna Shores Resort actual timeshare sales presentation – try to laugh, if you can.
Good Luck Out There
