Krystal resorts are recently being known for their poor service and deceptive sales tactics. Know more about one of the biggest timeshare scams in Mexico

According to the UNWTO (World Tourism Organization) Mexico is one of the most visited countries throughout the world, as a result, Tourism is the third most important economic activity in this country, just after the petroleum industry and the remittances.

Being Tourism such an important activity in Mexico, it is not surprising to know that Mexico is the second country in the world with more timeshare developments. Destinations like Cancun, Puerto Vallarta, Nuevo Vallarta, Los Cabos, Mazatlan, Manzanillo, Ixtapa, Cozumel and Huatulco, among others, are the places where the most timeshare developments are located.

Vacationers should be aware of timeshare scam, especially in Mexico, where the timeshare offer is remarkably high. We highly recommend checking out the hotel reviews and rates before staying there or before thinking on buying a timeshare on a certain resort. This article was written to prevent others from the fraudulent sales tactics used by the Krystal timeshare sales staff.

Krystal Resorts

Krystal Hotels & Resorts were part of the NH hotel franchise, for that reason, they were known as NH Krystal, but due to the bad reputation the Company was gaining under this name, the “NH” was removed and the Company was subsequently simple known as “Krystal Hotels & Resorts”.

The pictures shown on the website are very impressive, and they claim to offer a top quality service and a pleasurable experience. Krystal has 4 different locations:

  • Krystal International Cancun
  •   Krystal International Puerto Vallarta
  •  Krystal Ixtapa
  • Krystal Business Ciudad Juarez

They say you can take the dog out of the junkyard, but you can't take the junkyard out of the dog. Despite the name of the company was changed and some reshuffles were made, the resort still has many bad reviews and poor ratings on TripAdvisor: Most complaints are about their insistent and persuasive timeshare sales staff.

Krystal Timeshare and The big scam operation

According to PROFECO (Consumer’s Protection Agency in Mexico), Timeshares are the Industry they receive more complaints about, and Krystal is one of the most problematic resorts, being that the Company doesn’t respect the timeshare regulations established in Mexico.

They have a club called KIVC (Krystal International Vacation Club). On their website, they claim to be one of the best known and loved resorts in Mexico, despite all the complaints filed against them.

The scam works just the same as other timeshare scam operations, very similar to the tactics used by Mayan Palace. The sales staff invites you to a 90 minutes “sales presentation”, promising free gifts and cash, but without telling you that the real purpose of the invitation is to take you to a timeshare presentation, which is strictly forbidden by the Mexican law.

The presentations are high-pressure and end up lasting over 3 hours. Regardless how many times you say “No”, they will persistently insist until you sign the paper. Many decently intelligent people have fallen victims of this scam.

As a result of this operation, many Krystal timeshare owners are not happy with their purchase. For those who decide not to pay the high maintenance fees anymore, Krystal International Vacation Club has an agreement with a collections agency called Concord Servicing Corporation.

    I would never buy one. They don’t seem like a good investment at all.

    ojala que mucha gente vea esto y puedan tomarse el tiempo de leer mi comentario, este resort es uno de los peores, son estafadores de primera, tengan muchisimo cuidado y eviten hacer cualquier tipo de negocio con ellos

    EL SERVICIO ES TERRIBLE, TE TRATAN MUY MUY MAL Y ADEMAS SON INSISTENTES A MAS NO PODER, NO VAYAN A ESTE RESORT NUNCA

  • GoldLionDecember 9, 2013, 12:56 pm

    Time shares have never made sense to me, even when I was younger. Why pay that much money for one week? And who can plan THAT far ahead? You are sharing that space with 52 other people essentially and you are all paying like you own it? Obvious scam!

    They don't stop until they get all the money they can. Is a terrible scam this resort.

    Hola, hace dos meses fuimos estafados en Krystal hotel Cancun. Les dimos el timeshare de mi abuelo (con valor de $10,000) como enganche. Encima nos cobraron $6,100 dolares en nuestra tarjeta, $895 por un mentado platinum club, $695 por global resort connections para rentar nuestro timeshare, y nos cobran $275 al mes!!! Ahora quieren $2000 por un mentado Lloydshare annuities. Me siento idiota por haberles creido. Mis pobres abuelos estan a punto de jubilarse y ya no tendran su timeshare! Nos pueden ayudar? Por favor!

    Just yesterday we were getting out of some villas in Mazatlan, with whom we had booked, trying to enjoy the last hours they approached us to invite a breakfast, a 90-minute talk lasted nearly three hours! The manager was forcing us to buy a timeshare! According were $ 103,000.00 pesos than which we had to leave half but as my wife and I did not want he told us that with 1000 pesos we could make the contract, so insistently that I got desesperate, besides the guy painted it us as "business of our lives " thing sounded as a joke! Be careful and not be wrapped by this type of people who are not rude but they offer a breakfast that cost 30 pesos and later you have to pay for almost half a million dollars for a virtual property!
