Palace Resorts Informative - HORRIBLE SERVICE
RIVIERA MAYA, MINNESOTA -- We were staying at Moon Palace for our wedding in October 2005. Hurricane Wilma hit while we were there, and needless to say, our wedding was ruined. We had prepaid for many services which were not delivered.
I disputed the charges after returning home, first with Palace Resorts, then with Visa when I didn't get a response from the resort. They finally responded, talked in circles, and promised a refund.
We were then mailed a free five night stay instead. I complained, and they said they would not dispute the refund, finally mailed me our pictures and paperwork after four months of waiting for them, and apologized for the inconvenience.
I have since been notified by Visa that they have re-charged my credit card for the services they agreed to refund.
I contacted Palace again, this time irate, and was told I was not promised anything, and that I should not complain - I got married and other weddings were cancelled completely! I wish mine would have been.
What should be a pretty clear customer service issue, services paid for and not delivered, has turned into a five month battle and them billing my credit card for items they agreed to refund.
