We have been going to the Vidanta property since 2008. So much has changed (a lot for the better), but I really do miss the old days of the easy entrance and the train! I also miss how easy it was to decipher what your room was like and where it was going to be. We are booked on an RCI Exchange into a GL Villa, 1 bedroom, 1.5 bath this coming Nov. Anyone know which building(s) these units are located in? I have read some reviews and it appears, perhaps, these rooms, since they have the much larger decks, are corner units or higher up? We have stayed in a GL 2bd Suite, which was nice, but seemed the basic, entry level GL unit. The room descriptions give no indication of location.
Also, we are RCI Platinum members and it appears what we booked is only available to Platinum members. Can anyone speak to that experience? When we stayed at the GL Jungle Riviera Maya last Nov we booked through our RCI Platinum membership and we were treated like royalty, told that we were part of the Registry Collection, were given a top floor unit with view of water park, vs other RCI members we ran into that were on bottom floor with storm curtains pulled down over their patios and maintenance would not open them up - they were basically living in caves!
Lastly, I have heard sales rumors Vidanta is changing the Grand Mayans into another version of Grand Luxxe. We toured a mock set up in the Riveria Maya last Nov. Any word on when that transition may be happening in NV? Is it already happening? Just curious. Don't want to take a dog and pony show again just to hear about it and waste half a day of vacation!
