So, The Big TimeShare Companies Don’t Like Timeshare Cancellation Companies!

So, The Big TimeShare Companies Don’t Like Timeshare Cancellation Companies!

Here’s an article about Diamond Resorts International going after legal firms, law firms that offer timeshare customers a way out of their contracts. We can see why they are upset but locking customers into long term contracts under high pressure salesman can be damaging as well. This is something that timeshare companies should address. The sales pressure that is applied to new customers is the same sales approach 30 years ago. The points program is where the fraud starts, in our opinion. Deeded weeks is our preferred timeshare concept. Click here for further information or resume below.

Finn Law Group Files Suit over Timeshare Maintenance Fee Practices at Diamond Resorts

July 13, 2017

Timeshare owners upset at the maintenance fee’s. That’s the one thing we have against “Points vs Deeded” timeshare properties and large corporations that run them.

We, my wife and I, own at smaller 5 star resorts and deeded only weeks. We have attended two of our resorts annual meetings and have had great responses to questions. With huge corporations  have you ever attended an annual meeting to find out where you monies go? I doubt it?

Take a look at our last timeshare meeting at The Village at Izaty’s

The Village at Izaty’s 2016 annual meeting. It was a great and informative meeting with over 50 timeshare owners present.

Los Abrigados Resort – “Loved our stay, timeshare sales complaints” – April 2017…

April 2017

We had a 2 bedroom suite. The beds were so comfortable and our unit seemed to have been remodeled and extremely spacious. We could have stayed there much longer than the 5 nights we booked and would definitely go back. We would have appreciated some notice for our housekeeping day. She told us she couldn’t make our beds because we had some personal items on them. The pool was well heated and the grounds are very nice. My biggest complaint are the underhanded sales techniques for the timeshare. We had a call during our service to ask if we needed more coffee or towels. We said no, but my parents who were staying in another unit said yes. They thought housekeeping would be delivering this, but a guy in a suit showed up and tried to guilt them into a meeting. When they called us, the guy lied to my husband and said I expressed interest in setting up a special breakfast to hear ‘the talk”. I definitely did not, and if they need to lie to us to get us to meet with them, then I guess their program isn’t a good deal. Not a good way to try and start a business relationship.

Review of Los Abrigados Resort and Spa…..April 2017

April 2017

“OMG! Soooo Disappointed!”

Grounds are well kept but room is very outdated and utilitarian! For a romantic weekend this is NOT the place!! They try to get you to go to timeshare breakfast ….who the heck would buy here once they took a look at their room! Rooms and bathroom are very rundown!! Ok if you are traveling with a car load of kids. Otherwise don’t bother!

Diamond Resorts Accused of Using Hard Sell to Push Timeshares…Pretty Much True

Dinner on a catamaran on Lake Tahoe
                       <a href="http://www.nytimes.com/2016/01/24/business/diamond-resorts-accused-of-using-hard-sell-to-push-time-shares.html?_r=0" target="_blank"><strong>Read This Article About Diamond Resorts</strong></a>

Read this article about Diamond Resorts and how some of their salespeople work. My wife and I have been through many presentations over the last 15 years. Even though we can almost recite their presentations verbatim there is a lot of physiological pressure in a presentation that is supposed to only last 90 minutes but usually stretches out to 3-4 hrs.

When approached by a representative to take a tour we explain that we already own 3 weeks.
They say, “That’s OK we love existing customers. We also tell the salesperson that we already own 3 deeded weeks, but they press on as if they didn’t hear us,
like the people in the attached article.
