Sunday, January 19 my wife and I boarded a US Air flight in Charlotte, NC at 6:30 p.m. est to start our trip to San Jose Cabo, Mexico.  We landed in NYC at 8:20 p.m. est and did not depart until the next morning around 6:30 a.m. est. We then flew to Houston, TX and landed around 10:04 a.m. ct.  We departed from Houston and landed at San Jose Cabo, MX at 12:55 p.m. mt.  We were in airports 22 hours.  After going through airport immigration procedures for the next hour we were exiting their airport to find our pre-paid transportation to the Pueblo Blanco in Los Cobos.  A man told us he would give us free transportation to our resort and took us to the Mayan Resorts desk.  We were immediately bombarded with a presentation of gifts including free transportation to our resort.  Instead we were taken to the Grand Mayan in San Jose, MX. 

We then informed the saleperson that we could not pay anything to upgrade our already existing Grand Bliss ownership with Vida (Mayan).  After three hours we agreed to a program where we would pay $5388.00, which they set-up with Interval Internation for 2.99% interest for a limited time.  They accepted our Great Smoky Lodge by Wyndham and Shawnee Village Resort as properties to lower the price.  In addiiton we were offered a program to rent two of our Grand Mayan weeks each year to take care of $15,000.  We agreed, however even with this deal I was completely satisfied with my Grand Bliss and should have not accepted any changes. 

Then we went to another office to sign  12+ pages with numerous signatures.  I questioned a form that had us paying the $15,000 and the salesperson was brought back.  He did not talk to me in front of the person presenting the forms to be sign, but we went into a hallway for him to explain again the rental program. We re-entered and signed. 

 

The pages that we signed were not given to us at this time, but instead were mailed to us weeks later at our home address.

At the beginning of April I received a bill for $15,000 due by April 21.  Later I received an amended bill for $13,420 that reflected the two Mayan weeks being rented this year.

 

Currently I am waiting to see if Vida will accept my offer to keep my original contract with Grand Bliss and I loose $5388 plus $749 I paid to trade my Great Smokey Lodge by Wyndham property.

Mayan Palace Timeshare Scam

AUTHOR: margaretsims90 - ()

Getting into a timeshare can be very easy, getting out, not so much. Many vacationers purchase timeshares with the intention to travel around the world, some others pretend to buy the vacation property as a financial investment (which is actually unwise move), while some of them were practically pushed into it. Whichever the reason is, the truth is that loads of timeshare owners regret their purchases. There are lots of timeshare scams.

Mayan Palace Timeshare Scam

AUTHOR: SophieM - ()

The sales tactics are the same for everyone at the Mayan Palace timeshare resorts. Hard sell, disrespectful when you say no, broken promises. DO NOT think for one moment that you have an upper hand...these are professional con artists highly trained to take your money. You have no chance of ever seeing your money again or receiving anything close to the value you were promised. Assume that everything posted by Grupo Mayan and its affiliates is a lie or a scam. Never do business with this company; never buy a mayan palace timeshare scam.
