2020-06-02 Empire Realty Group Incorporated, Chicago, IL

The Aimfair member who sent this to us noted the errors in the letter sent by the contact person and the untrue statements about his ownership. It was clear this offer (and all the other cold call offers) was a scam. Be aware and no need to take the call.

2020-05-30 Fake CEAV Inquiry

The CEAV is a number of agencies in Mexico that are devoted to supporting victims of abuse, hardship, and other possible crimes against them directly or indirectly. This scam leads the recipient of an information request to believe the sender is going to investigate scams and attempt to recover money lost to scams.

Not true. The sender is impersonating an investigator for one of the agencies and requests information that can be used against the recipient.

2020-04-07 Sayulita and Nayarit Message to Easter Vacationers - Stay Home….

The Governor of Nayarit has imposed strict directives that have closed all the hotels in Nayarit and required citizens to use best practices to keep the coronavirus from spreading. It seems to be working. Locals are not allowing people inside their communities if they don’t live there. Reported cases as of April 5 - 9; reported deaths - 1. Nayarit seems to be doing a great job containing the spread of the virus. Keep it up so we can all return soon....

2020-03-25 We returned from Neuvo Vallarata on March 22nd after spending three weeks in the Lofts. Vidanta is effectively now shut down. There was less than 20% occupancy at the resort starting on the 23rd. Towers 6,5, the Residence Club, 4,3, the Mayan Place, part of the Grand Mayan and the Sea Garden were all closed as of the 23rd. The few remaining guests were moved into Towers 1 or 2. Some were planning on staying until the end of May but were told they would have to leave by mid-May. All the night maids at the resort were laid-off on the 19th; all the concierges were let go after the 22nd.

A similar or worse situation exists for tourists related businesses in both Puerto Vallarata and Neuvo Vallarata due to the corona virus.

Regardless of the effect of the virus on Vidanta, we noticed a significant decrease in both the quality and quantity of services provided to guests. This includes the maid service, the maintenance needed to be performed, and the pool service. There were fewer servers and the drinks were "watered down" to the extent that is was questionable whether alcohol was included. One of the servers admitted that a cheaper quality of tequila was now being used. The only bright spot was at the gym. The quality of the equipment remains high and the service is still superb.


The worse meal we experience-either on or off the compound-was at the French restaurant formerly known as Azur. While the service remained high, the quality was-at best-only average and was unbelievably over priced.

It appears to us that management is either: (a) trying to squeeze as much profit as possible out of the resort; or, more likely, (b) experiencing financial stress due to being overextended. The cruise ship appears to be a disaster as does the "sky dream," i.e., the tram. It will significantly affect the "garden view" from all the towers, including the Grand Punta and the Residence Club. It is not clear to us how Vidanta will keep the cruise ship passengers and those coming only for the "carnival" will be kept from the pools, restaurants, etc. at the resort.

If we had realized that the resort at Neuvo Vallarata was going to be turned into a carnival we would not have purchased. Without question we will not be putting more money into Vidanta.

2020-03-23 Coronavirus - Another Point of View

A Stanford Biophysicist and Nobel Laureate winner has been studying data on COVID-19 worldwide and, in particular China. Conclusion: Maintain social distances, keeping sanitizer close by, covering a cough with an elbow and other good practices will reduce the spread and impact of the virus. Maybe over a shorter period of time than we think. Good practices are implemented at the resort now too. Stay tuned and stay vigilant....

2020-03-20 On March 12th 2020, we completed a short jeep tour of the Kingdom of the Son (KOS) construction site. The underground access routes for service vehicles have been completed. The hotel structures and water ways are well underway. Part of the waterpark equipment such as large waterslide was visible. One of the Sky Dream stations at the edge of the park had mechanical installs being completed . The lake system for the park also underway. The second phase of the KOS has now been sold out and the 3rd phase is now selling. This is a massive undertaking and will definitely position Vidanta as unique place to own or stay on the western shores of Mexico. Apparently they will also be selling sites on the eastern side of the expressway,being the Water Park Resort. The new building next to Luxxe Tower 6 is the first building for Celebrate Park Resort. There are plans to have the Sky Dream extend over to the Mansion Estates in the future.
