The whole Mexican timeshare experience is turning into a nightmareRVC is having a problem with a group of people they took money from for villas they were to built in Cabo but not only did they not build them the money was used to pay off debt. The s/a might be a way to raise money for it's current legal problem.
I just found out about the special assessment yesterday when I wanted to reserve for 2010. Of course I had not received any notice about it yet, but I was emailed the letter. I'm Club Regina, bought 2nd hand, and of course have never received the contract I've requested from Mexico.I suspect most of you are going to think that I am nuts, but here it goes.
I am not thrilled with idea of having to pay a special assessment, but if it is going to make a noticable difference in the look and feel for me as an owner and increase the trade value then I guess I can live with it. All I can say is look at marriots maintenance fees, they are huge and you can see the quality in thier units. You get what you pay for. I just want to see a difference if I have to pay this.
You have expressed my sentiments exactly! If you get ANY realistic advice on how to exit this timeshare at RVC, please forward to Buddy@Popesays.comSeriously, anyone with practical advice on dumping this thing, please respond. Obviously, if I could recoup some of the $$ I've dumped into this thing, that would be great, but at this point I would practically pay someone to take it. I have come to dread making our vacation plans. We always seem to be forced into a compromise between timing of the vacation and/or quality of the resorts. The fact that I am forced to make my reservations through Raintree, and unable to fully utilize RCI's website to search for resort availability, exacerbates that problem. Frankly, we bought the membership to "see the world", and it was foolish to buy a location that we were not willing to utilize on a regular basis. Again, any advice would be appreciated.
Thanks for listening
