Hi there! My wife and I have been fans of timesharing for quite awhile, and in fact own with Westin resorts as well as Silverleaf. Our Silverleaf Seaside (Galveston) timshares were recently purchased by Orange Lake Resorts, which also own Holiday Inn Vacation Club. We were recently enticed to purchase a small share in the Galveston, Texas Holiday Inn Vacation Club property ostensibly to increase the value of our weeks properties there. Well, we just received our 2017 maintenance dues statement, and see that our annual fees have increased from appx. $1800 a year for both properties, to almost $2500 for each of our 2 properties.... Has anyone else heard of such an increase? Is this legal? I am waiting for them to get back to me...I have already told them to come up with something more reasonabl. For the new amount of money we could stay at a luxery hotel in Galveston and still have funds left over....unacceptable!
