    Villa del Palmar Cancun....a nice change?

    We have been fortunate enough to exchange into the Westin Lagunamar in Cancun twice just before the Covid travel bans put a stop to that. For those who have stayed at Villa del Palmar Cancun, do you think the resort would be favourably comparable with the Westin Lagunamar. Everything about...

    Looking to give my Villa del Palmar membership away?

    Hello, I've only had the membership for a year but I haven't had the opportunity to use it at all. My whole life has changed. As a result I am interested in transferring the membership. There are monthly payments and a yearly maintenance fee. They have amazing hotels!

    Has anyone been called buy this commodity firm? They said they contacted members who had trial weeks and are brokering a deal to buy them.

    Delinquent in Villa Del Palmar Mexico

    Hi, We bought a timeshare in Cancun Mexico in 2014 and financed about 11K with them. We used the resort 5 times and every time we got back we regret doing that deal as there were multiple empty promises and horrible customer service experiences. So when we came back last year in July 2018, I...

    Villa Group said they will buy our old timeshare

    We just purchased a time share from the Villa Group at Villa del Arco in Cabo San Lucas 4 days ago. They gave us $15,500 off the purchase price for our old time share in Aruba. We have 30 days to get the paperwork to them and they will transfer ownership. Now I'm getting nervous that they may...
