This company charges people as much as $8000 for a membership for alleged wholesale prices but all they do is go on the internet and do it for you. Anyone can go online and get the same prices. Since they opened their doors in Ormond Beach they have changed their name several times in the past 6 years trying to hide from their own members so they cannot file claims against them. The real companies name is Resort Services International located in Winter Park, Fl. They have almost 50 distributorships all with different names so that they cant be traced to RSI. The prices they show at the presentation are mostly made up and they have prices on a dry erase board they say are updated weekly but they havent been updated for years. The same product is sold to some people at $8000 and others for $2500. They just try to get as much as they can.

They chose the name Florida Beach Destinations because of how many hits you receive when you place a search trying to hide from the ripoff report. I know all of this as facts told to me from the actual employees who have worked there for years and joke of how they ripoff people.

rebuff re Florida Sport and Recreaton

AUTHOR: cassa - (Australia)

POSTED: Sunday, May 02, 2010

In October 2009 my family of 2 adults and 2 children found an all inclusive holiday at Carbo San Lucas including airfares return from LAX,transfers to hotel when we arrived and left, one week accommodation, all meals, all drinks, for 7 nights at cost of Australian $460 each. As I am a member of Florida Sport and Recreation I compared the price with them.It was cheaper per person by Aust$40 each. The booking was easy and promptly attended to.It was incredible value for us who were coming to USA for other reasons. This is a holiday that we will never forget.Superb food, beach setting,entertainment.Everything that we could wish for.

The presentation when we joined was factual and truthful.We were able to book accommodation in New York on Central Park at a fair price, whenever I go onto the site and look at accommodation or a cruise, it is easy to speak to someone re any queries.

I am more than happy with my membership.It works for me and my family.

#1 UPDATE Employee

Company Rebuttal

AUTHOR: Florida Beach Destinations - (USA)

POSTED: Monday, March 01, 2010

The complaint filed by Alain against Florida Beach Destination (FBD) is inaccurate and untrue. FBD members purchase a Software License which enables them to receive access to resort condominium inventory and concierge services that allow for booking hotels, cruises, and other travel services.

Condominium inventory made available through our website is generally not available through public websites. Our hotel and cruise prices are typically much lower than any travel agent, travel website, or other free outlet. Further, we offer a Price Match Guarantee to each of our members which ensures theyll never pay a single cent more when booking travel through our company. Whether a member is more comfortable booking travel through our website or by contacting our concierge department, our agents will search for the best available price through a multitude of sources. 

Our company has not changed names numerous times in an attempt to avoid our members. We give each member numerous, valid working telephone numbers which are answered seven (7) days a week. Our company is also licensed and bonded with the State of Florida. Any complaint that has been  brought to our attention has not only been answered, but fully resolved.

Reservation Services International, located in Winter Park, Florida, has been contracted by FBD to fulfill travel for our members. FBD is not the same company as Reservation Services International and FBD has only one sales office (contrary to the complaint stating there are 50+ distributorships).

The prices shown at our presentation are based on current, real travel prices available the day of the presentation. We do not falsify information and post it on our board in an attempt to make a sale.

The price points for membership vary greatly depending on a members wants and desires. Some people travel more than others and may opt for a more comprehensive package which would entitle them to more benefits than others. Its much like a fully loaded car vs. base model.

Our office in Ormond Beach/Daytona Beach, Florida, may be reached by phone at (386) 672-6009. Our concierge services department may be reached at (888) 277-0601. Hours of Operation: Monday-Friday 9am-9pm. Saturdays 10am-4pm. EST. Closed Sundays.
