We recently stayed at the Ocean Spa in Cancun. It is a timeshare property so expect to attend a sales presentation. This hotel is older and could use some renovations, but it was clean & quiet. First let me say that the employees are all hard working & pleasant. The salesmen are pushy & are trained not to take No for an answer. My #1 advice to you is: DO NOT give the salesman you ID's at the start of the presentation. I do not know if this is common practice of all the salesmen, but ours took our ID's and stated it was policy to make copies of them so that your information stays in a file for future reference (to keep the same people from coming over & over again & saying "no" while getting the free gifts~which made sense). Well, it turns out that they ended up holding onto our ID's until we ultimately signed up for their timeshare & was ready to leave. We asked for our ID's a couple of times and told them that we really could not afford to buy their timeshare, but they never did bring our IDs back to us. I felt like we were being forced to give in. We were not about to get up and walk out without our IDs, we were in a foreign country for crying out loud! As I sat there in tears, we were trying to figure out what to do. It can be a very enjoyable vacation, just keep your guard up & be careful.
