We received the following submission from one of our users about their experience at a timeshare presentation in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico:
“We were promised $400US, massages, car rentals, fish foot spa…we decided to venture upon this presentation at the luxurious Pedregal property of La Vista. We are seasoned timeshare presentation attendees as well as happy owners at Grand Solmar and this is not, by far, our first rodeo. We had been forewarned that this place was a scam but against our better judgment, proceeded. We were greeted by a man who told us we would not qualify for our ‘gifts’ because we are in the process of purchasing a new home, closing next week, and we were afraid to do anything that might mess up our mortgage committment. Breakfast was a disgusting slop that was served in a more than pitiful area, and nobody else was in there. He told us he would take us on a ‘courtesy tour’ to see a room. It did not end there.
We were escorted to ‘the room’ where we then encountered 2 other people trying to push their product. When I asked why they were going thru all the procedure sales pitches when we were told it was only going to be a room tour, the woman, Dalia, winked and told us not to worry we would still get our gifts if we ‘push us.’ We figured that meant the typical banter back and forth. So we sat for 3 more hours listening to their crap thinking $$$ signs and car rental, etc. After the usual attempted squeeze, all the amazing offers they could possibly imagine to throw at us…free weeks, plane fare, a book full of free trips, massages, even to move us over to there for the remainder of our trip…we continued to say NO because of our mortgage situation. The salesman then said he would finance us through Mexico, nobody would know. He had a plan that would work for us. Now we are totally assuming that since there was a way around our mortgage situation, we will have survived positively the presentation, get our gifts, and run. In the end, all the happy faces turned into the devil and they did not give us our stuff. They basically threw us out, would not even pay for our cab back to our hotel, and ended up with this shitty reviews all over the internet. After researching this La Vista we realized it is a total scam, taking on a new name from old busted timeshare hotels. Please dont waste your time. The place is so not worth it. DONT DO IT!”
