2018-10-04 Estates-Club and PJU Associates are not to be trusted. Stay away because they are phishing for your confidential information. The only way you can gain insight to their websites is to provide confidential information to register first. Not good. Our contacts at the Mexico Department of Tourism says the sites are not to be trusted and Vidanta says the Vidanta legal department is trying to close the site down.

Do not become a victim. Stay away.

2018-10-03 New Restaurants and Shopping Areas are planned for the grassy knoll above the Mayan Palace Pools.

The restaurants may be operated by the Hakkasan Group, and reportedly the Rockwell Group is helping with the designs.

This area of the property is quiet and serene, with views of the ocean and the Mayan Palace pools as you walk up the hill. The planned changes will likely respect the beauty of the area and be an enhancement for guests and members. The company is expecting larger crowds, so the quiet nature of the resort could be short lived. Its not a bad thing....Stay tuned....

2018-10-02 Fake Attorney Representation Offer by Alvarez Asesoria Y Defensa Legal

The caller described in unclear terms the fact that he is with a law firm in Mexico City that is devoted to representing Timeshare owners in suits against timeshare companies that oversold their product with lies and misrepresentations. He invited us to sign documents that among other things asked for confidential information about our ownership.

In a previous investigation, we befriended Sr. Rangel in Mexico’s Department of Tourism. He has provided us with accurate information and warnings. He also confirmed that the group that called us should not be trusted.

Yes, this scam is making the rounds again. Just look at the earlier offers:

2018-07-26 Another Inquiry by Fake Mexico Tourism Department Employee

This is the second time in 2018 that information was solicited by a person claiming to be an employee of the Mexican Government's Department of Tourism. The sending domain is CPTMgob.com.mx and not owned by the Mexican Government. Also, the request is for money to participate in legal action against scammers. Finally, the false claim is the Mexican Government is interested in buying timeshare interests.

Definitely do not respond with any information or send any money!

What is "Creactive"? That is the name of the Cirque du Soleil Entertainment experiential venue targeted for retail spaces. Creactive centers are currently located in Club Med's Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic and Opio, France. Another is slated to open in Toronto.

2018-05-31 A Tower is Under Construction at East Cape

A recent image from Google Earth shows a building is under construction at Vidanta's East Cape property. The first floor pilings are rising from a cement floor. This is clear confirmation that construction has begun at East Cape. Given the time it takes to build and complete a tower, the first tower may be ready for occupancy by 2020. Of course, we all would like availability to happen a year earlier, but the odds are against that from happening. All we can say is.....Stay Tuned....

2018-04-30 Asset Real Estate Investments - AREI

This entity claims to be headquartered in Clayton, MO. However, the address given does not provide a suite number or post office box number. Also, there is a company registered with the Missouri Secretary of State's office, but the name is not an exact match. Therefore, it is highly unlikely that the two are related. Finally, the website claims the business has been actives since 1995, but the domain for the website was created on January 6, 2018 and expires on January 6, 2019.

We would stay away from this opportunity!

2018-04-24 Another Fake Vidanta Offer

An email letter is circulating that offers to rent bonus weeks that are presumably expiring. The deal is pay the $850 usage fee in advance and get $2,200 guaranteed rent. All for using the bonus weeks that the email recipient is not using. Oh, BTW, they will not send documents. Only oral representations over the telephone. Definitely a scam. Stay away from this one if you get such an offer. Remember....only YOU can help stamp out the scammers.....Don't Send Money!

2018-04-14 Just a few thoughts on GL Riviera Maya. By way of background, we are long-time drinkers of the kool aid and have experienced some of the not-so-happy experiences of other members. However, we would be remiss in not praising Vidanta Resorts for what they have here. The people, ambience and laid-back atmosphere of GLRM more than justify the cost and occasional longer-than-expected waits. We’re always blown away by the genuine friendliness of the staff and overall serenity of the environment. Granted, we have not yet had our “update” and therefore cannot opine on this year’s sales onslaught. But after 15 years and sevral upgrades, we’re still fans. For what it’s worth.
