    Vidanta: how long do I have

    Greetings! It's been about three years since we've used our Mayan Palace week: it has gone to family or friends. Anyway, back in Feb. 2023 we paid our annual maintenance fee (we have an old contract (2002) with mandatory fees). My question is: I can't remember how long we have to use our 2023...

    Purchased a timeshare with Grupo Mayan in 2007 and am using it for the first time

    A little backstory, me and my wife purchased a time share with GM( now Vidanta Vacations) in PP in 2007 and we came to a property in Cancun this week. We have not been able to use it regularly due to the fact that life has sort of gotten in the way, and we started a family, etc. In preparation...

    My Vidanta Story

    It was late Summer in 2007, the end of a long work day in Iraq when I decided to surf the net. I saw an incredible deal to purchase a one bedroom at the Mayan Palace for less than a single year's maintenance fee. I immediately decided to make an offer, and I was the winning bid. I don't know...

    Vidanta at Puerto Penasco (aka Rocky Point)

    I know Vida Vacations now has two timeshare resorts in Puerto Penasco (the Mayan Palace and the Grand Mayan). When I attended an upgrade presentation in April 2010 I was told the property will include a Grand Bliss. Does anybody know if construction has begun on Grand Bliss or Grand Luxxe...

    I spoke with Vidanta mangement and they offered me the opportunity to cancel and walk away. I take back any bad things I may have ever said about them. I explained that we were going to sell it and were members of TUG and just needed to know the accurate Maint. fee and when the lady asked...
