Taino Beach Resort Complaint - Terrible service, bad investment for vacation timeshare

Review by Anonymous on 2002-09-14
BAHAMAS -- Do Not purchase a vacation timeshare through RCI with the Ritz/Taino Beach Resort in the Bahamans unless you have thousands of dollars to throw away and free long distance phone service for 30 minute hold times. Since falling for their sales pitch last year, I have had nothing but frustration and stress. The people I've actually been able to get through to have been extrememly unorganized & have given me nothing but broken promises. I have a feeling that that I've been scammed & I'm already out thousands of dollars on what was offered as a vacation timeshare which could be rented to others for profit should I elect not to go myself. They will confuse your records, loose your paperwork, hang up on you, and take your money. Consumers Beware!!!!

have you thought about contacting the attorney general? I fell for a similar scam, complained and received my full amount back. It did take me two years but well worth the wait.

Did you buy the timeshare through RCI? I didn't think they sold timeshares, I thought that they were a timeshare trading company.

I can only agree with OP. I had a screaming match with them today b/c for the past 3 years, I have called to advise them of an address change & they can't seem to get it. They end up charging late fees & then blamed me b/c I didn't get in touch with them. I spent $$$$$$$$$$$$ with them & they can't afford people that can change an address in their system.
This venture is definitely on the LOSS column. Don't let it be on yours!
