Disney or Vidanta?

I saw an interesting statement posted on Facebook today. It confirms what a lot of us say in person, but we never see it in print. Bottom line: this person's opinion is Grand Luxxe facilities and experience and price is superior to their experience at a Disney location in Hawaii. Here is the post:

An observation and opinion. We’ve been satisfied members for nearing a decade now. This summer we decided to do Disney’s Aulani resort in Ko Olina, Oahu, Hawaii. It is beautiful and we’re having a great time but also we are comparing it to Vidanta. Vidanta is winning , In Our opinion. Not as nice of restaurants here as Vidanta. Not as any pools or nighttime entertainment. Rooms are comparable. Travel time to Hawaii is a lot longer. The staff and people here are kind and gracious but nobody compares to the staff at Vidanta . The biggest kicker is prices!! One week here cost as much as an upgrade at Vidanta, and it’s only one week, not all inclusive either! I am so glad we belong to Vidanta.

Sure, we all have preferences, and they are not necessarily the same as the next person. That said, statements about how good we have it in Nuevo Vallarta or Riviera Maya at the Grand Luxxe Residence Club are more common than not.

What do you think? Are the facilities, services and overall experiences at Vidanta superior to those offered by other vacation options? Let us all know by leaving your comment below.

A Recycled Scam Offer - Lives Forever....

Our email folder has received four - that's right - Four invitations to visit "Vidanta-Group" to take advantage of 15 unused bonus weeks assigned to our account. Plus, the offer goes on to say we can rent the weeks through Vidanta-Group and get $2,400 per week. Oh, by the way, did I mention the cost? Nine hundred sixty five dollars - that's $965.00 usage fee - PAID IN ADVANCE!

What is the trade? One of your weeks for two studio units at the Sea Garden Cancun! This offer is a SURE winner....for the people you send money to.

This offer was presented to us four times between April 16, 2022 and May 15, 2022. It was also offered to us in June, 2021, and several years earlier in a row. Yes, scammers do have long lives, and they are always happy to take your money.

Here is the offer you can count on seeing - year after year after year:

Remember, only YOU can help stamp out scammers - DON'T SEND MONEY!!!

Aimfair Update Progress - Bumpy Road

After 12 years with the Tiki platform, we decided to upgrade to the newest version. Well, all the changes since 2010 are starting to show up as we move through the migration process.

We truly appreciate your patience. The project is well underway. As those of you who are Subscribing Members and have visited the Owners Forum have seen, there are weird, new posts appearing on the Forum, and they are not from fellow members.

The Internet is full of interlopers. Additionally, changes to previous settings do not always carry over to new systems, leaving little gaps in the foundation walls. Thank you interlopers for showing where we need to focus. While probing for openings, they found a way to access the Forum.

Rest assured the intrusions are not material - rather they show us where we need to tighten permissions and other settings. This inconvenience will last for a very short period of time (less than a day from now). We could take the Owners Forum offline, but then we would not have the benefit of seeing where the leaks are.

A frequently uttered saying comes to mind....This Too Will Pass....! Contact information is secure.

Jon Rahm Wins Mexico Open at Vidanta Nuevo Vallarta

Greg Norman Course - Site of the Mexico Open at Vidanta Nuevo Vallarta

We hope you watched the final round of the Mexico Open at Vidanta Nuevo Vallarta today. Jon Rahm was the favorite to win, and he did. But not without a bit of stress. Two other players, Cameron Champ and Kurt Kitayama made it interesting for spectators when they tied Rahm in the back nine of the Norman Course.

In the end, all three were tied at one time. But Champ and Kitayama were unable to keep up with Rahm, and he won with a 2 putt on 18 in the end.

Yes, it was fun to watch the match on TV. We enjoyed seeing the temporary structures that were installed just for the tournament. It was fun to see the Norman Course in such great shape. Finally, we could empathize with the players as they tried to sink putts on the Norman greens, which are notoriously like glass.

If you did not watch the final day live, you can read about it on ESPN by tapping the following link: https://www.espn.com/golf/story/_/id/33834288/jon-rahm-closes-birdie-build-2-shot-lead-mexico-open

We look forward to next year's tournament and hope to attend. It would be wonderful fun to attend at least one PGA Tour at Vidanta Nuevo Vallarta.

Jingle Bells As You've Never Heard Before

January 10, 2022

Yes, it is after the Christmas and Holiday celebrations. We know. BUT, this rendition of Jingle Bells will, if nothing more, introduce you to a new and energetic experience. Joy exudes from this video, which is a pop-up concert performed by the US Air Force Band and Choral group. Remember this link when you feel down or like you need a boost of energy! It will be the cure for all despondency!!

Yes, we know it is unusual to draw attention to something that is traditionally saved for the Holidays. But, if we all keep this rendition of Jingle Bells in mind all the time, chances are we will smile and think of how wonderful the gift of music is; maybe it will also be a mood changer too.
Here's to you and many wonderful years where ever you may be!
