As I posted about here, I received an offer for a free two night stay at the Hyatt Wild Oak Ranch in San Antonio, Texas.
I believe that I was targeted for this offer since I am a Hyatt owner and live in the immediate vicinity of San Antonio.
The Hyatt Wild Oak Ranch is one of my families favorite resorts. It is one of the material reasons that I actually first bought a Hyatt timeshare. We tend to visit the resort at least 2-3 times per year.
We have been coming to the Hyatt Wild Oak Ranch since about 2007. In all that time, they had grandiose plans to build out the property with additional buildings, more amenities, another large pool area and additional restaurant facilities. Since 2007, while there have been some changes, the resort has mostly stayed the same.
It appears that the Hyatt Wild Oak Ranch has finally made progress on its expansion and just completed a brand new building on property called Cedar Elm.
The likely reason for the offer was to allow existing owners to see the new building and potentially up sell them to the new Hyatt Portfolio program.
As you might expect, a timeshare presentation is required in order to get your two nights free. In a separate post, I'll give you a review of that experience but I can tell you now that I am not looking forward to yet another timeshare presentation. If you read this blog regularly, I have been doing a lot of these tours in order to give my readers better insight into the timeshare industry.
We checked into the resort without issue and was fortunately placed in the new building. We received a two bedroom unit which is absolutely huge. It is an absolute pleasure to have some much space and have my family of four each have their own bed.
The new two bedroom units are fairly similar to the older units but has some nice updates. The TV's are large and new, (there are 3 TV's in the unit), the appliances are new and of high quality and the furnishings, while still a bit rustic for my taste, are very comfortable.
Here are a bunch of photos that I took of the room. Scroll through them all to see the entire unit!
As you can see, the room is huge and well appointed. I would not say that there is a tremendous difference between the new units and the older units but if you do stay, definitely request to be in the Cedar Elm building.
Stay tuned for additional post on the Hyatt Wild Oak Ranch and my thoughts on the timeshare presentation!
Have you ever stayed at the Hyatt Wild Oak Ranch?
