I can't answer questions now (no time) but I'm working behind the scenes to make some things happen.I need your help everyone...

*************
URGENT RE: CARAVANSERAI
*************

We are working on a lot of things related to this situation. Right now, we URGENTLY need to know a) if there is a Caravanserai Timeshare Owners Association; b) if so, who heads it and how we may get in touch with the top people (phone/email); and c) we need similar contact info for people who have a lot of ownership at the resort (many weeks / penthouse / etc.) Please do *NOT* put this info online; email it to jmbweb[at]jmbcommunications.com as quickly as possible, preferably during the day on Sunday. Time is of the essence to move forward on this situation... I need your help....

Okay, being relatively new to T/S ownership (9 yrs) this obviously sounds disastrous, especially to those of us who purchased our week outright back in 2006 (pre-construction)& who bought a 3 bedroom unit!!! We paid $20,000 for the week. I know of other T/S buildings that have been converted to hotels but the T/S owners have been asked to sell their units back and are paid a seemingly generous percentage of the initial purchase price up to about 75%. This seems like a TOTAL loss on the T/S owners behalf. No T/S unit, no compensation and loss of RCI points!!! We can't imagine that all of the owners will just walk away and chalk it up to a bad experience. Of course it is my gut reaction to hope that if this is the option we are left with that NOBODY EVER stays at the Algeria and that the new owners lose their investment of 12 million as fast as possible. I can see Trip Advisor and any other social media vehicle being bombarded with negative comments about the Algeria with hopes to spread the word about what a rotten deal the T/S owners received. I know that recourse for such actions in another country will probably be very difficult but doing absolutely nothing doesn't sit well with me either. We love visiting SXM so much and will continue to do so regardless of the actions of the new owners of Algeria but if this stands, we will take every opportunity and use every media vehicle we can find to discourage any potential visitors from choosing this "hotel" while visiting SXM.

Jeff...I sent you an email. Let me know if you did not get it. And Paul got a lot of use out of that shirt over the years! LOL!

We have 2 Penthouse weeks so we feel your pain. And believe me I would not be quiet about this if they really do this to all of the loyal, repeat St. Maarten tourists who invested in Caravanserai and stuck with it through all of the difficult times. Shameful.

Yeah...I am a former full time lawyer who is now a stay at home mom. In the past 5 years my husband (at age 44) battled prostate cancer through surgery and radiation, my daughter got type 1 diabetes and went into a coma and nearly died, we lost 2 family members, a crazy former employee nearly destroyed our business, and I was diagnosed with a congenital peripheral nerve disorder. Despite all of that we have managed to stay married, protect our business, raise beautiful high achieving kids, and still donate to charity. We visit St. Maarten for 2 weeks every year and that is one of the joys in my life that is a respite from the stresses we have faced in life, and someone is tarnishing it. Suck it up and run is not in my genetic makeup.

Mecs, and others, did you receive a letter? I got a copy of one forwarded to me, but I still have not received a letter.

I am hopeful that next week we will have more clarity on the plan of the resort and what action we will have to take.

Good luck all,
T

Have not gotten a letter. Just copies sent by others and conversations with people.

We have not received our letter as of yet. After years of broken promises this will be disparaging. Not one to be a pessimist, but we will probably end up taking it in the shorts.
