While vacationing in Las Vegas, I had the opportunity to hear a presentation on a "time-share". The representatives from "The Villas at Polo Towers" hearded several couples from the Venetian into vans. (Typical Shuttle variety vans) The tour held at the end, the lure of tickets to a vegas show and dinner vouchers at a restaurant of my choice.

I was assigned a representative whose name is "Chris". Chris we very aticulate and charming. He showed my friend and I around the property, explained the price of the package and the various benefits. Things were going rather well when at the end of this "low pressure" presentation I met "Ramsey". He was dressed like what you would picture a stereo-typical 'Used Car Sales Manager' would look like. I am a woman and he used a very condesending tone. Asking if I could "understand" the interest rate. He quoted a rate of 17.9% to finance this package. Chris did such an outstanding job, that I actually considered purchasing. Asking for what anyone would before they make a purchase of 22,000k. I asked for time to consider and research comp sales from that property. His manager, "Ramsey" said, No one comes back. We dont have "Be Backs". "If you arent ready to purchase, I am wasting my time".

This was said in a loud voice in the presence of several customers. It goes without saying that his behavior was non professional. It was demeaning and uncalled for. I felt I was a threat to his ego asking questions that most consumers don't.

Word of advise and warning, beware of Venetians offering gifts from the Polo Towers. If you are up to an arm wrestling match with a first rate sleazy salesman, by all means go on the tour. If not, kindly decline. I wish I had.

No proof

AUTHOR: Michael - (U.S.A.)

In response to the person who filed the complaint, what proof do you have of your claims? Detailing your experience with a sales rep has no business being listed as a Ripoff Report since you never purchased anything. You can provide no proof of what was said and I have been on that same Tour before and it was nothing like you describe. Sure the end of the interview is a little high pressured but all time-share pitches are. You also make wild claims on the value of the properties, claiming a $22K purchase price with a $4K-$8K resale price. Where do these numbers come from. I have used this site to get information on a lot of companies over the years but your report is not helpful and is actually very misleading.

Now, my tour at Polo Towers was some time last year, and I don't remember the names of the people I delt with. I have recently been reconsidering purchasing a property there and hope that others who may consider doing so will ignore the first persons inaccurate report. Purchasing a Time-Share is not cheap, I've looked into several so I already know that. Don't look at purchasing a Time-Share for it's Resale Value as that's not what it's there for. It's not like a house that someone might "flip" for a quick profit. Owning a Time-Share is like owning any other Vacation Home, it's an expense and one that you should be thinking of for the long term.

22K? resale around 4k for 1 bdrm, 8k for 2

AUTHOR: Tom - (U.S.A.)

Just looked up resale costs at Polo Towers found around $3,800 for a 1 bedroom and around $8,000 for a 2 bedroom. Annual fees are at least $460.

I've heard people rave about their timeshares and other people rail against them. So I can't say they are good or bad, it is an individual decision, but I think everything I've seen they are not an 'investment', they are for vacations.

Just look at any timeshare resale sites. If the first poster's timeshare was costing 22K they would have overpaid by at least 14K + interest compared to a resale. I know lots of factors (which week, which unit, etc.) are involved.

And, high pressure doesn't work with me either. Present the facts and let me make up my mind.

Polo Tower Ownership

AUTHOR: Shawn - (U.S.A.)

If you want more insight on your experience and time-share sales pressure, search for Fairfield Resorts on this site. It is also a time share resort.

As far as the property, I am an owner at Polo Towers. I bought one week every two years, and I have had a good experience with the resort. For what I pay in maintenance fees, the room is a very good deal (they have pictures on their website). The last I heard, it is the only 5-star hotel on the strip and the only hotel with a rooftop pool. Owning a time-share here gives you a lot of leverage when it comes to trading/swapping for another time-share elsewhere in the world.
