Not too bad

so we went arriving right on time. Free cookies and water of coffee.
good start. Then comes the questions. All about how we holiday and ... what we spend on holidays. We are given the books that show all the properties that Marriott owns and then a tour of the rooms and the site and a presentation room fir the world wide Marriott system. So far so good. Then comes the killer. $35,000 for 3,500 points per yrpear that can get you a week or less ay Ko Olina or three and a half weeks in Phuket and everything else in between. Og yeah, then there is the yearly fee of over $1500. It would take quite awhile before you bot ahead of the game. So no...not at this time although this resort is very very fine!
We agree to do a costomer satisfaction sirvey whixh girns into a second offer of one week for $1900 mountain view or $300 more for ocean view. After some thought ....no. Oh yeah ypou also get $200 Mqrriott bucks which almost opays for your time to park your rental onsite. If you don't use a fental the charge is a out $60 from Wailkiki. But wait ..if you go online you can get very close to that rate.
Any way, we do take the day pass to their pools, but decline a cocktail at $11.50 a drink. We also choose two people on a dolphin cruise with BBQ. The Luau on thier site is the promoted gift, but the dolphin cruise is a short walk from our condo. And we do enjoy the afternoon dipping into their quiet pool, going for a walk and reading in our loungers. It is very tempting, but so much money to sleep beside a pool,
Home agsin we walk to the point, make s margarita....too strong....and I've not had enough food, and steak, sweet potatoes, broccoli and rice. The sun has set and the waves are calm. The parties are over until next weekend, even the dogs and roosters across the roaf are worn out.
