Vida Vacation Club Grand Mayan, The Bliss Resorts, CVM Custom Vacations, The Bliss Vacation Club High Pressure Timeshare Sales, False Promises, Lies Cabo San Lucas, Mexico Mexico
Timeshare ordeal at the Grand Mayan – high pressure sales, fast talking, false promises, lies, and another unhappy customer. The resort looks to be very nice, but absolutely stay away from the timeshare sales.
“Marco” hit us up at the rental car office, after we were stung by a $99/week car rental turned into an over $500 car rental due to Mexico’s absurd insurance rates. Marco promised $450 off the car rental, plus some other perks, if we would attend a 90-minute sales presentation for timeshare at the Grand Mayan. Our first mistake…
Grand Mayan – long story short, our 90-minute presentation took 7 hours, with deals and promises and lies. In the end, I agreed to a purchase. 3 “Bliss” studio weeks, plus two “Vida” weeks, with the promise that I could “return” the Bliss weeks and they would pay me $800 per week each year – immediate wire transfer when I returned the weeks. Also, they would buy my timeshare in Vail CO (so I can get out from under the $1000 annual maintenance fee) but I could exchange a Vida week for the same condo only $699 per week. Sound too good to be true?
You don’t find out the details of the lies until well after your Mexican holiday – there is a 5-day rescission period, but 5 days after you are bullied into the contract, their offices are closed. Then the other agencies start to contact you regarding their bits (timeshare exchange, Golf Network, etc), and you don’t find out about the original lies for a month after you’ve signed the original contract.
How obvious is it that when you do an internet searches on Golf Network CVM, Grand Mayan timeshare, Vida Vacations - the first sites that display are complaints from customers!
