Hard Rock Hotel Punta Cana

IMG_5548THE SALES PITCH

When you stay at this resort, you have to know going in that you are going to be pitched a time share.  You will be wined and dined and you will talk numbers and you will either hate it, or you will buy into it.  The day we arrived we had to set up an appointment to speak with a salesperson for the next day.  It was only supposed to be an hour and afterwards we would just say no and we would be on our merry way.  HOWEVER, after about five hours of haggling back and forth, we bought into it.  If anyone has a bridge to share we might just be your victims. I don’t know if it was my wife being a saleswoman and she just wanted to see what kind of crazy deal she could get, or if it was the bottle of champagne that we drank while we were discussing numbers.

Whatever it was, we bought into it.

IT gives us the opportunity to stay at any one of five Hard Rock Hotel and Casino Resorts in the Dominican and Mexico for the next however many years.  The way we looked at it was that we definitely enjoy tropical paradise and this gives us a place to go with our kids and one day their kids to a beautiful resort and enjoy family time.  I don’t know if we got the best deal; there is always a thought that you’ve been had in these sort of negotiations.  But I think by the end our time with the salespeople they had enough of us and just wanted us to leave.  Not that it’s a problem for them, but we will be back.

Up next… the bottom line.

The Beginning
About Daddysincharge

After 15 years as a News Photographer in the fast paced world of television news, I am now knee deep in Legos and laundry as the stay at home dad to to little boys. It was my choice to stay at home, so don't look at me like I am some kid of freak show. We're all parents just trying to raise our kids the right way. Some might be better at it than others, but if our kids love us for who we are, who cares.
