That is so sad about Tony. The same disease that Ray had and both were Caravanserai salesmen. Tragic coincidence. I hope that he wins his battle.

Very good response, VitaMan.

Sometimes I can be a hothead and particularly so when someone's being taken advantage of (and even more so yet when that 'someone' is ME.....) as is so very much the case here with this whole mess, so I'm sure my first inclination is to want to fight it.

But then the realist in me takes over and I start thinking about how much the good fight might cost in the end, since like so many others here, I clearly remember all the ups and downs at the Pelican/Simpson Bay Resort, along with the other faces of Caravanserai and lastly, the years long saga of the Mullet Bay Resort fiasco before the settlement was finally reached in the unit owners favor, and yes, I do understand the situation there was different and we weren't talking timeshares but a lot of people spent thousands to fight the good fight, taking on all the different entities involved. And many of those owners ended up dropping out because of the very high cost of fighting the good fight when they realized how much the fight was costing them.

If you can afford the fight, Amen, go for it and take a stand for the principle but I'm betting it's going to cost a lot of money to straighten this mess out, and when all is said and done, the good guys could still lose in the end.

I truly hope that isn't the case but just remember, it could be.

From my recollection, Caravanserai had major damage from Hurricane Lenny, just when it was about to reopen in 1999. And for the last 15 years I recall reading about all the great plans that never seemed to come to fruition. I sure hope the people that invested for all of these years can get something back. Never had a good feeling about the place after seeing what Lenny did to it. Good luck to all...
Happy Travels

I am here this week and next at Caravansarai, having bought the two weeks back in June for $200 per week. Not sure about the end of the month or November, but my room was here as promised. I feel relatively sure that RCI will honor your previously purchased weeks even if they have to relocate you to another timeshare. Here's hoping I don't get kicked out after this week.

What are people doing that have reservations in the near future. We are coming down weeks 51 and 52 and have THREE units! There is a total of TWELVE people staying at the resort. Is it their intension on only using the "hotel" or will they be using the timeshare units to house people. All the tickets were bought at the highest prices ever. This is the busiest time of year and I'm sure options are minimal. Looks like there are no answers coming from the resort.

There have been a few articles/editorials in The Daily Herald discussing the Caravanserai/Alegria situation in the past couple of days.

Becky - Are any of the old staff members still there? Have you seen Ozzie at the front desk?

I hope you have a good holiday despite all the upheaval.

I see that RCI is still showing many units available for exchange. One unit with a check-in of Oct 18th and then lots beginning March 21st and running through June. From this I would GUESS that confirmed exchanges shouldn't be an issue, but if it were me I'd continue to try to get confirmation from RCI on that.

Looks like there was a meeting with Ted Richardson and the St. Maarten Timeshare Association. He agreed to invite both Scotiabank and Alegria to discuss how they can come to a resolution on this issue without involving the courts. No details on when that meeting will be held though.

Also, the story at TodaySXM, said the following:

Alegria’s argument that Caravanserai was not allowed to sell timeshare without written permission from Scotia Bank will not hold up. An anonymous source told this newspaper last night that Scotia Bank was full well informed about the activities at the resort.
