Travel Around
Travel Around the World Inc failed to honor contract by transferring title and ownership of three of my timeshares American Fork, Utah
31st of Jul, 2011 by User495284
In July of 2010, my wife and I bought a time share from Mayan Palace, Riviera Maya. Their sales pitch was that we could trade in our current time shares that we own as down payment for theirs. We signed an agreement to have Travel Around the World Inc (TATW, Inc) act as the agent for the transferr of titles for our current timeshares. Shortly after, we received a call from TATW asking for us to send requested documents to get the transfer started and a fee of over $1500. We complied. A few months later, (November 2010) we received another request for notorized documents. We complied. In March of 2011, we received notice from one of timeshares that the maintainence fee was due. I contacted TATW about the transfer timeline. I was told that we were working with the Mexicans and they were slow but that the paperwork was in the hands of the closing agent. I was forced to pay that maintainence fee of over $300. I was receiving emails from another timeshare which I owned so I called them and was told that no one has contacted them regarding the sales of my unit with them. I have been calling TATW over a period of months trying to get them to transfer the titles and kept getting the same response that we were dealing with the Mexicans and they were slow. Finally, around April or May, I received a call from an agent in Florida asking about my timeshare in Park City, if it was for sale and that he had a buyer. I called TATW and asked about that property and was told it was still with the closing agent so I told them I may have a buyer. Thinking back on that, I believe that whole deal was a scam because TATW took my Park City timeshare off of the transfer process eventhough I did not tell them to. TATW told me that the process of transferring title would have to start over again. In July of 2011, I received another maintainence fee for another timeshare and so I called TATW again, but this time they told me that the title transfers had been completed but they weren't sure. That was a lie. The person I spoke to was Lourdes. I told her about the maintainence fee told her their company was responsible to pay this since it has been almost a year. I emailed a copy to her with a semiassurrance that they would pay the fee. On August 1st, I received a second notice for payment of maintainence fee so I again called TATW and complained to Daniel, whom I have spoken to several times in the past. He did not want to talk to me and told me to call back when Lourdes was there. Naturally when I called back Lourdes was not there. I asked to speak to the closing agent in charge of my account. I was refused that information. I asked to speak to the person in charge of that office, I was told by Daniel that he was. He refused to speak anymore and referred me to Lourdes.

I have had the same type of experience and now no one answers my notes and the threat of my timeshare going into foreclosure has been delivered!

We were also scammed with a Mayan Palace Timeshare. They claim they don't misrepresent themselves. Yet the promises and the drinks ease you into signing. Once you've done that, you are screwed. Through all the other initials on your contract, you realize you initialled, that they don't misrepresent themselves. Now you are up the creek. We had 2 timeshares they claimed that Alliance marketing would sell for us in 3 months max. We would recoup the money we paid at the Grand Luxxe and would net out ahead of the game. Well 15 months later, I am out $30k and I still have the original timeshares. I have also not heard a word from Alliance marketing in several months. Plus I found out they are a marketing group, thus not legally allowed to sell. I have had to take a 2nd mortgage out on my house. All the answers I have seen from the Mayan on various websites show they are not at all interested in helping out. Do they not have a concious? you should read this article about Mayan Palace:

I was convinced by Mayan Palace timeshare salespeople that an upgrade to my timeshare from Mayan Palace to Mayan Place Regency would make it easier to rent and more saleable. I entered into a contract for $6, 720.00 to complete this upgrade. I have since learned that this upgrade is doing nothing for me as I try to sell and rent the unit. The list of benefits is this:Elite Reservations rental program (which I had available before), RCI enhanced pkg, certificates for cruise and vacation discounts, 50% off golf green fees (previously it was 20%), senior certificare (I'm NOT a senior), no mandatory maintenance fees after 5 years if I don't use the property?? Lots of free extra benefits and vacation bonuses but nothing tangible. I owe a cash out of $4, 368.00. I wonder what the consideration of this contract is? I have all the paperwork and had to email the sales office to get a list of benefits I paid for. This is a good article about Mayan Palace:
