While on vocation in Mexico, my wife and I purchased both a Resort and Equestrian membership with Sunset Lagoon. On our return to the states two days later, we decided that we did not really need the Equestrian (Yacht Club) membership, and decided exercise our option as provided in the contract to cancel this portion of the membership. I attempted to contact Sunset Group regarding cancellation of the
contract. However, Sunset Group refused to return my phone calls or
answer my e-mails
When I finally got on to one Mr Alverez,they kept giving us a run around stating that they will get back to us. They finally got back to us about 8 weeks later, with the following email" CLUB LAGOON BEACH Y MARINA S.A DE C.V
Dear Mr. Baptiste:
Good afternoon, I hope that you are having an excellent day.
Regarding your cancellation request for the Yachting & Equestrian
membership, allow me to inform you that like I explained you via telephone, our
Board of Directors authorized me offer you the total
cancellation of the
membership if you pay the Resort Membership in full (25-1-13828).
Please, see the promotion attached.
The promissory note that you have signed was for the 30th of November. Was not applied because we are working with a cancellation.
I will appreciate your response to this e-mail in
order to show in the Board of Directors your answer.
Thank you for your time.

The promissory note that he mentioned in his email is the
same one which stated that I can cancel the contract within the given
time. I have also been unable to reserve or use the timeshare that I am now out $13,474.00
The final straw is that they have reported my wife to the credit bureau which
resulted in her security clearance being revoked. This have in turn placed her
job as an Army Officer in jeopardy.
