Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

In January of 2010 we purchased a timeshare from Grupo Mayan, we traded our two timeshares one from New Orleans and one from Orlando.   Every year we have to jump through hoops to get the maintenance fees paid, when the deeds should have been transferred to Travel Around the World back in 2010.  We paid all of the transfer fees in 2010 and to date all statements still come to  us and now we have been sent out to collections.   We sent them the deeds back in 2010, so we don't even have the deeds to reference.  It is getting very frustrating having to deal with this every year on properties we don't even own any longer.

Yes, unfortunately Mayan Palace is one of the most fraudulent resorts!! I also had a bad experience with them, the way they treated me, and all the lies i've heard. 
The worst thing is that once you fall into their scam tactics it's almost impossible to get out. 
Here's a list of complaints about this resort i've found recently, 
you should take a look:
Don't give up, i still have hope that sooner or later we are going to make a difference against those thieves.

Mayan Palace Timeshare Scam

AUTHOR: BetzabethT - ()

Do NOT do the Mayan Palace Timeshare presentation! We tried to say no until we were so tired of it we agreed to a 90 minute presentation for $100 USD per couple and 10% off of our charges for the week. The 90 minutes became 150 minutes. Each time they were ready to let us leave a different person prevented us from leaving. Very rude and dishonest. I had to express anger at the fifth person before they showed us the door. This left a sour taste in our mouths for the last few days.

Mayan Palace Timeshare Scam

AUTHOR: Brad304 - ()

It is the same old story with the Mayan Palace timeshare resorts (owner David Chavez) who does not care about what fraud he perpetrates on timeshare buyers.  The same old adage applies, with regard to rental fees applicable, etc. It is fraud and there is right of rescission in Mexico no matter what program you buy, no matter what the horror show salespeople tell you.  Heve not met one semi-honest one representing the mayan chain yet. Yes, we got scammed and bought, never again. These are the worst operators in the business.  The name of the programs, Mayan Regency, The Dream, Mayan Palace, Grand Mayan, Bliss, Grupo Luxxe change with regard to what they wish to charge.  The upshot is if you are down the line in their program name game list you lose benefits. The tiger does not change its stripes.  Beware

Grupo Mayan/Scam

AUTHOR: IsabellaP - (United States of America)

Actually Grupo Mayan is one of the most fraudulent timeshare companies in Mexico. The salesperson says that they will rent out their Mayan weeks for a large profit and issue a check to the client within a few months so that they can pay off the timeshare with the rental income, or that they can sell your old timeshare, or ANYTHING to get a sale done. I know a company called Mexican Timeshare Solutions that can give a free consultation on your matter, you should contact them to see what you can do now. This is a forium with more people who were scammed by Grupo Mayan:
