    Compramos una membresía con Playa del sol hace unos 3 años, el primer año todo bien, sin embargo empezaron a subir las cuotas de mantenimiento exageradamente lo cual nos desilusiono mucho y nos preocupo, hasta la fecha siguen subiendo mes con mes, a este paso ya no podremos pagar la cuota de mantenimiento

    The tour company is almost certainly real. But, they may try to get you to buy stuff as well. Use the tickets, and continue to politely decline to buy whatever you don't want.

    They got me too. I actually thought we had a decent price, and wanted the deal to work. But they lied about everything. We couldn't get reservations 9 months in advance. Our "VIP week" couldn't be booked at all. We couldn't use the 2 weeks concurrently (travel w/family). We couldn't extend a stay (at our cost) ouside of the proscribed 7 days.

    I have the same experience - the certificate is a scam! I had to let two certificates expired. In my opinion the whole timeshare industry is a big scam. I am trying to get rid of my time-share unit.

    Unfortunately, Playa del Sol sales in Mexico are in its majority a huge scam. The OPC, the one on the street inviting you makes $250-$350 per couple...so be sure he tells you any lie there is. Timeshare sales people are rotating from place to place and mostly alcoholics that look for their 8% comission. We were surprised how they work, like sharks, and some are really good showing numbers, benefits, etc...If i did not know, i probably would have bought. Be careful and NEVER make a decision the same day!! They love this, just tell them that you need to think about and they will throw in all they have..that is the sign that someting is not quite right...

    I'm interested to know if I stop my payments to Playa del Sol what happen? I'm a timeshare owner and I can no longer afford to pay the timeshare fees.

  • Austin TexasAugust 31, 2015, 2:37 pm

    I think timeshares are a poor investment. I would never get one, not even from this company. Its very rare to hear anything good about them. All I hear about is timeshare relief scams and hidden fees.

    Right now I am filing with Profeco and I also filled a complaint on the ripoffreport.com and thesqueakywheel.com Everytime someone logs on to that complaint Playa del Sol gets an e-mail message, it also shows up on search engines for yahoo and google. They have actually now responded to me after 2 years of trying to get a hold of someone. If you have noticed their e-mail addresses on their website no longer work and when you call they just put you on hold and no one ever comes back to talk to you. We were totally lied to and I would do anything to get my money back. If anyone has any other ideas let me know. Thank you.

    We purchased a timeshare contract with Playa del Sol after a VERY high pressure sales presentation that lasted for several hours with our 2 small boys in tow July 22, 2015 at the beginning of a week long vacation in Cabo San Lucas (we were not leaving until day #6 & there was no readily available means to further evaluate this contract plus the 6 month delay to even access any of the "proposed benefits" presented in the contract / presentation). In addition to the fraudulent timeshare contract fee (discrepancies noted below) we were also required to pay an additional fee of $549 to the company for exchange purposes and to use first several years worth of weeks as credit towards contract fee. This was also to be used for rental purposes to provide rental income for our timeshare as an investment. I will continue contacting appropriate websites and agencies to present and/or post my case and the ongoing issues I have with Playa del Sol and their goal to keep our money.

    In my mind it doesn't make sense to buy a timeshare. It is not an investment and it ties you down to yet another payment which may or may not make money. In fact it is not a cost effective way of vacationing. Instead, Playa del Sol is a very scamming resort.
