Hello, I have been a member of Global Great for years and so far so good :) but I understand your doubts, it DOES look too good to be true and certainly a few little things might not be exactly as expected. Let’s take the free holidays that include the flights, you can’t choose where and when yuo go...Just wait for the offer to come in and book it if you are interested. Also I don’t think you get free holidays if you don’t reach a certain level of membership, I think it’s 3 or 5 periods…
Thank you Edinem, I didn’t know you could get free holidays offered to you on a regular basis! What about the return on investment? It’s the part I’m most sceptical about.
The return is great, it paid back my loan in a few years and now I’m starting to make profit with the rental programme. My advice is don’t worry anymore and start enjoying the services as soon as you can. Rates for package tours and other services are also very good
I bought 3 periods with them in 2013 and I’m very satisfied as well. We get free stays but not free holidays though, this is reserved for ambassador or platinum members and not for premium level. No problem about the return which is even better since the pound dropped against the euro.
You can check this thread, it’s about real estate periods: https://www.investorsworld.co.uk/real-estate/real-estate-periods-in-europe/
I had never heard of real estate periods before and now it seems to be everywhere. Have you seen the latest article on this forum? It is about...real estate periods! I have personally no experience with it and do not plan to but have a read, it may help you :)
I hadn’t even seen the article!
I also did a quick search online and found these :
Wow, when I became a member, nobody knew about real estate periods, it was still the beginning I guess. This is great news!
PS: Anne.kempton, have you already visited the new hotel Garden Lago?
Not yet, I have been to Marbella for some winter sun instead. I’m thinking about it for Easter next year.
We just spent our holidya in Garden Lago. Edinem, what would you like to know?
I would like a feedback as I have been told by a friend it is infested with mosquitos but my friend can be a moaner sometimes :)
Well, there are mosquitoes as the resort is close to the lake but I wouldn’t say it is “infested”. Take repellent and after bite with you and you’ll be fine
I prefer Aucanada club, stunning views and quieter place, and probably less mosquitoes :)
I totally agree with you @castleyek, Aucanada is much better than Gaden Lago
I've just seen this, we love Garden Lago I cant believe people are complaining about it, it's common sense! If the hotel is next to a lake and it's hot, then of course you're going to have mosquitos!
Our favourite has to be Aucanada always has been.
We love Garden Lago and the locartion is perfect for kids
Completely agree with you great for kids but Aucanada is great too the pools are good and great entertainment
Has anyone tried the Costa Blanca?
Not yet but they have places all over the place
We've been to Denia, absoutely loved it! Denia is a lovely place too
just come across this forum. Ive just invested in real estate periods with them and now I have just found this please can I have some reassurance?
why do you need reassurance? are you worried? Don't be we are very happy cudnt recommend more
yes same here we have had ours for nearly a year now and are really pleased. What are you worried about?
well it's just a lot of money
not really when you consider the return
plus the amount of holidays you get! It's all about the holidays!
that's what attracted us and it's niice to see on here people are using the resorts and they look lovely
they are lovely, and you are not restricted, you can go to many different places
I love Marbella, it's so beautiful and we're booked into Garden Lago this summer which we're so looking forward to
So everyone gets the availability? and income?
Absolutely, why not? But make the request at least a few weeks or months in advance. Income works just fine as long as you dont forget to make the request
That's what we liked the idea of as we are real self-catering people we also need the income to finance the purchase. ok thanks everyone feeling better as there seems to be a real community around real estate periods so much better now thanks again
Any time honestly any questions you have fire away!
am new 2 this forum stuff bt wnted 2 ask as seen on here about these holidays seen this about GGH we bought some products wooried about avail and income advise pls
good for you for asking - you will get used to forums once your in them. I have been a member since 2016 and have received income & hols & see peeps on here saying to good 2 b true well not really as investment is significant but am here to say defo recieved results so far & they're really helpful.
as I have said before on this forum I would absolutely recommend. The customer service is excellent, and we have just booked a "bucket list" holiday through them too nothing is too much trouble and its very useful to have your own travel agent. I can recommend and I would say anything you're worried about just call them. Am booked to go to Aucanada in May again can't wait!
gonna wade in too if I may - excellent customer service, and we are booked into 2 places for this year so v happy so far.
I can't understand why people are so worried tbh
I thin its because its a significant investment
I suppose so it seems a long time ago now, and as we have income every year
If something seems to good to be true luv its normal to be worried
Can I just say we bought in September and have just completed. I am also worried too but my husband persuaded me its a good idea I am a worrier by nature but its a lot of money and I worry that its not what they say although reading this and I have seen some other forums and clients reviews on trustpilot seem good but i dont' kniw if we have done the right thing or not a bit worried tbh
wow you are a worrier but with good reason it is your hard earned money and until you get into the flow of getting the rental income every year I can see where your coming from, you only believe what you see, but if it can reassure you we have been owners for many years.
why dony you phone the customer services if you feel like that? The girls I speak to are so nice and so helpful or maybe go to one of the hotels and speak to someone?
thats a good idea I will ring them up and maybe book somewhere to speak to someone face to face to be honest I have probably got myself into a state about nothing just talking to other owners helps and I am a bit of a worrier
why don't you look on their FB page? Are you on that? Keeps you up to date.
sounds like you 2 have an interest
no, certainly not, we were happy to speak to owners when we first bought
listen, I have been an owner for a long time and I am giving the benefit of my experience to people who need some reassurance which is normal as Ive been through this. There is no use in making stupid statements so if you haven't got anything useful or constructive to say then please do not say anything at all
lol thats a forum youll always find funny blokes
well at least I feel better to see so many people look happy with it
yes me too although Ill feel perfect when I make my own experience lol
Checking in on my compadres!everyone ok?
