    The sales representatives from Playa Grande used Travel Around the World (TATW), to handle this trade. We had no other option, but TATW. We paid for the transfer fees and TATW fees . After many phone calls and emails this transaction is not complete and Grand Mayan wants money for upkeep of a timeshare I don't want and have never used. They have promised this will get completed soon but I don't know what to think anymore.
