Global Resorts Network was established in 2006 and located at  N 17th Ave, Phoenix, AZ 85027 22601  by Al Morales.  Global Resorts Network is another  MLM Travel business opportunity.

Global Resorts Network is a luxury travel club in which members can book some of the world’s finest 4 and 5 Star hotels, resorts, and condominiums at deeply discounted prices between $298 to a maximum rate of $799 for a week stay.  Some of these properties include Shell Vacations Club, Wyndam, Worldmark, Sheraton, Perennial, WIVC, Club Intrawest, Diamond Resorts, just to mention a few.  Global Resorts Network promotes travel club memberships offering  properties and resorts in over 5,000 locations worldwide.

Global Resorts Network product is a membership that has been sold for 20+ years to the customers who attend a personal Gold Crown Resort sales presentation.

Years before, as an established timeshare host, Gold Crown Resorts, began selling memberships to access timeshare properties worldwide. Gold Crown Resorts purchased  inventory from timeshares and resorts around the world known for dealing almost exclusively with 5 Star properties.

The 20+ years of experience in the industry has helped to shape GCR in changing to popular interests in which people are more inclined to renting instead of owning timeshares; and the eventual week long vacation stay opportunities for the broader public.

Global Resorts Network gained the exclusive rights to offer this GCR membership through online marketing and purchasing privileges beginning in 2006.

At end of 2013, they announced that they would no longer be using the name Global Resorts Network, but rather Internet Lifestyle Network.  This caused a stir among long time affiliates who have been marketing the company for years and where content through blogs and articles, forum posts, videos and etc have been embedded on the internet for years.

After members protested the change, they decided to keep the Global Resorts Network name for the “retail only” side of marketing.

They would implement the name Internet Lifestyle Network, a name and company created by Vincent Ortega, Jr. for the “home based business” side of it.


Membership cost:
• $11,995 Diamond Lifetime Member has 20 Premium weeks annually with concierge services
• $7,995 Platinum Lifetime Member has 10 Premium weeks annually with concierge services
• $2,995 Silver Lifetime Member has 2 Premium weeks annually with concierge services


Global Resorts Network operated a one-up compensation plan, sometimes called a “pass up one” plan.  To become active as an affiliate the very first Platinum sale any affiliate makes in the GRN arrangement is passed to your sponsor, you don’t receive any portion thereof. Once the first sale is passed up, then all sales thereafter provides a $1,000 commission to the member who makes the sale and $1,000 to the sponsor of the member who made the sale. Every sale, after passing up the first one, produces a $1,000 commission to the seller and the same to the seller’s sponsor.
