Royal Elite Timeshare scams are very common, since that’s one of the most fraudulent companies in Mexico. They have a terrible reputation regarding timeshares, being that said, a Royal Elite Timeshare is not a good purchase at all.

Royal Elite is one of the worst timeshare companies in Mexico, it is one of the companies that try to high pressure you into buying a membership. People need to be aware of this kind of timeshare scams as mentioned before in:

Royal Elite Sandos Resorts Timeshare Complaints

Buy timeshares – What’s the big risk about it?

Time shares, are they a good purchase?

The Company

Royal Elite’s legal name is Sandos International S.A. de C.V. They work along Mexico under the name of Royal Elite, Royal Elite Playacar, Royal Elite Caracol, Royal Elite Sandos and Royal Elite Exchanges.

Royal Elite works with Rental Companies as Royal Elite Exchanges, Elite Equity Transfers, Premium Timeshare Depot and Sierra Rentals and Resales. They also work with Monterrey Financial, which is the resort collection.

The 10 worst things about Royal Elite Timeshare

Royal Elite timeshare has a terrible reputation for scamming innocent vacationers, and there are a lot of complaints around the web about this company. Here is presented the top 10 complaints about Royal Elite timeshare:


  1. Royal Elite’s salespeople promise all sorts of services and amenities. Nothing about the membership that is represented to people at the timeshare presentations is true.

  1. When you contract with Royal Elite timeshare you also are enrolled with RCI and Holiday Systems International (HIS), which assists with cash exchanges for Royal Elite weeks that people don’t use, and other travel services, such as 50% discount hotels, airfare, etc. None of it is true. Its advertisements are also false.

  1. They promise that you would be able to rent back your weeks, but you cannot find a company to rent your weeks, you cannot get hold of anyone from RCI to exchange your weeks either.

  1. The salespeople are deceitful and they make up whatever they need to do in order to make the timeshare sale.

  1. Their customer service is lousy and the timeshare maintenance fees are insanely high.

  1. The timeshare presentation that should last 90 minutes as Royal Elite salespeople offer turns into 3 hours.

  1. Royal Elite never respond to their client’s emails or phone calls.

  1. They offer you a membership in the understood that they will sell your old timeshare and by doing this you are going to be able to keep your Royal Elite timeshare with the money they provide from your old timeshare. They never sell your timeshare and you end up owning two timeshares.

  1. Timeshare owners are not told that they have 5 business days to cancel the contract with no penalization.

  1. Royal Elite has the worst customer service ever known.


What to do if I was scammed by Royal Elite Timeshare

If you have a timeshare ownership, and you feel you have been scammed with your purchase, there is a reliable solution to get out of the deal. Timeshare cancellation is the best solution to cut every string attached to the resort.

Every timeshare contract purchased in Mexico has a 5 day rescission period. Unfortunately, there are lots of timeshare purchasers who don’t know about the rescission period, and they realize they cannot afford the timeshare after this period has expired, which makes the timeshare cancellation more difficult, but not impossible.

    I purchased a timeshare with Royal Elite, the salesperson stated that I could easily rent/sell it for a profit. He also assured me timeshares have equity. When I contacted the customer service representative and asked the market value of my timeshare she gave me information that disagree with the salesperson's sales pitch.

    We traveled to Playa del Carmen in late March 2015 and unfortunately also got involved with Vallarta Gardens. It appears the way their whole scam works is to suck you into signing a contract with them by having offering a contract with a marketing contract to bring to help offset your costs. Unfortunately the companies they use do not exist.

    Es una burla lo que hacen estos resorts, el año pasado fui victima de estas lacras , se aprovecharon que tenia unas copas encima y firme el contrato , para mi eso es una tactica desleal al cliente , pero bueno ni que hacerle , los que salimos perdiendo somos nosotros.

    Timeshare should be stopped! There should be more laws that will protect the timeshare owners.

    Timeshare owners don't have any rights. Hell you could buy every unit in the resort, pay in full and be the solo owner without having to share with anyone and you still don't have any rights. The management can charge you what ever maintenance fee they feel like it. There no way to vote them out, appeal, surrender your property. It's the ultimate scam.
    Even timeshare that are not total ripoffs are not good deals, the average year maintenance fee is $800 a year, multiply that by 52 deeded weeks in a year, times say 200 units, that's 8 million a year, It does cost no 8 million to run a 200 unit property, lucky if it cost half that with employees, utility and taxes. It's legalize robbery.

    You could say the same thing about property taxes, but you can appeal property taxes, in the next election vote for different people running things.

    I have sometimes wondered how so many of these timeshare sellers can really make any money, when there are so many people who go to the presentations, just to enjoy the freebies! I often will go while on vacation, and leave out with the money in my pocket to enjoy the rest of my vacation. And I don't buy a thing!

    An educated owner is quite possibly the best defense against telemarketing fraudsters who try to con timeshare owners. To see what timeshares are actually selling for you can use Sharket.com. It's a free website that has researched resale history data on 1400 timeshare resorts. When you know the value of what you own you are in a better position to protect yourself against fraudsters. When you don't know the value, you can be tempted to fall for the con man who claims to have a buyer at a price so good that it seems to be too good to be true if only you will pay an upfront fee to the nice man on the telephone....
