Count us in on ANY class action suit. And I urge everyone to broadcast a call for a BOYCOTT of St.Maarten - St.Martin
until they do something to protect TS owners rights.

As an owner who bought while the first floor of the T/S bldg was going up and who has used our penthouse unit 3 times starting in 2010 we have been on a roller coaster ride from day 1. to some of the people who have posted I can truly tell the non owners versus owners.We as many owners recognize the great potential for Caravanserai and have had some wonderful times there. We do miss Ray:( He always tried to help us and give us good info.I know many people posting don't fully understand what is in our hearts but to the people who are siding with Allegria I think they need to walk a mile in the owners shoes. I also think that is shameful that the St.Martin government has not made an effort to better communicate any efforts to solve this dilemma which they obviously have been aware of. As far as the bank goes ...They are a bank and they could give a rat's ass about anything but their money which is to be expected of the bank. I do beleive that it would be in the interest of bothe the government , and Allegria , and The Time Share Assoc. to solve this in favor of the owners for 2 reasons 1.) If they don't this will seriously weaken the timeshare business in general but specifically in St.Martin and 2.) We as other owners also own other weeks in St.Martin and you can bet your bottom dollar that we will spend every waking hour on that island making all parties involved lives MISERABLE!!!

Another thing to consider. What if some TS owners took a mortgage to buy? Didn't the lender require a guarantee (lien) against the property? Did the sale of the TS Resort to Allegria account for that? The borrower doesn't own anything, the lender does until the mortgage is paid off. Lots of unknowns at this point.

I just received a SECOND email from Alegria with the same awful letter attached. That's 2 emails in five days.

Do you own 2 weeks and have separate contracts? Am thinking they are working their way through contract by contract.

Somebody earlier posted that there were about 2,000 timeshare weeks sold. If each one involved an eamail response or a phone call, that would make for a very busy month.

"Thus my original post about how lame it was to send the notice via email vs. certified mail. They have no proof of ANYONE actually getting it."
When an email fails a notice is sent to the sender that it failed to deliver to that address.

And the emails heading come from Algeria not Caravanserai and reference timeshare. I would assume it was spam if I had gotten it. Most people who own at Caravanserai would not even know who or what alegria is. Unless you follow a social media site that talked about the sale and new name then why would you open the email? For all I know I got the email and deleted it as spam.

In theory, you are correct, in practice, not so much. I am involved in a business systems analysis project at work right now and one of the major elements is email deliverability rates. There is a significant gap between reported non-deliverables and actual. If you are counting on reported non-deliverables and following up only with those, you are going to miss a ton of people because there are a lot of ways that email is reported as non-delievered but is never seen by the target.

We have difficulty with purchase receipts that, because of the status of my employer, are held in company records, so must get through. This seems like a notification of similar importance. Our experience is that relying solely on email for critical documentation, especially that with financial implications, is folly.

As far as I know, there is no legal obligation for anyone to have an email address, much less active.
So in the event that an email sent by Allegria is returned undeliverable, the burden of communication and proof of it remains on Allegria's side.
Sending registered mail is the only way Allegria will be able to prove to a Court that they did contact the owners.
Regardless of the above, it blows my mind that Allegria decided to communicate such an important information to the Owners via email and not by registered mail.
