I am lodging my complaint here to raise awareness about what’s going on at Vida Vacations.I made the mistake of believing what my Vida sales rep told me. When I was looking at Vida, I told them we rarely used our 2 weeks per year that we already had with Shell Vacations. The Vida sales rep told me that this was not an issue at all, that we could easily sell our Shell timeshare through a recommended broker for cash and that this was a plan that many of their members sucessfully used. We could then use the cash procedes to replace the money we would use to buy the Vida timeshares. Plus, Vida was different because whatever weeks we didn’t use from Vida could be rented out through the same broker, which seemed like a safe bet to me. A year and a half later nothing has happened—I now own 4 weeks that I don’t use, cannot sell and cannot rent. I feel like fool because I believed them… I couldn’t imagine how the developer Daniel Chavez would allow his sales people to do such things. But after reviewing the internet, sadly I’m not alone. In fact, I have just seen the Youtube video “The Philanthropist and his Mayan Empire”, which is an indicment of the entire fraudulent Mayan sales process.I’m originally from Guadalajara and it’s sad for me as a Mexican to see how a man capable of such greatness has allowed this.
