I agree with VitaMan in the aspect of Alegria using the letters to test the water of owner reaction, however there are many opportunities to turn a profit without putting the burden on the backs of the owners. Obviously we would like to see some improvements in furnishings , elevators that work, a well maintained pool, and a water supply that both runs and provides ample hot water, but for certain the other 2 uncompleted buildings could be converted to a hotel or T/S and also there is the last building of the old resort that can be demo'd and rebuilt and sold as well, not to mention the income from the commercial rentals on the property, as well as the additional T/S weeks available to sell. This place has the potential to be a gold mine!

Did RCI refund any money or points you may have spent when you made the reservations? Did you have the RCI reservation insurance?

I have no skin in this game but I was just wondering. Jeff Berger said on 10/4 that he needed information and seemed to have some irons in the fire. Has anyone heard anymore from him?

The notice in the papers describing the actions being taken by the Minister of Tourism with help from the Time Share Association gave credit to Jeff for alerting them of the problem.

I am new to this forum and have received a letter on 10/3, found this last night. I will not be signing the form received.
I bought my TS in 2006 I believe, was given a room #, week, etc. (I need to pull my contract), and have not had the ability to use it, given one excuse after another, the property was not ready, and then no response over the last few years to my phone calls. Only to get a phone call about 3 months ago, asking me to send in my maintenance fee, ASAP. I found this strange, so I called back to the number I received and the person that answered, stated she didn't know who called me. I asked if I could start booking my room and was told, I would get a call back. Still waiting. Now, I receive this letter and it's all making sense. They wanted my money so they could pocket it.

I am in for the fight, I paid for my time share, pre-construction as well in full.

--------------------
Thanks Bruce

Just to update everyone on what I have found out to date. I am currently on hold with RCI waiting for a second supervisor after speaking with one rep and one supervisor.I have explained that I was told this A.M. by someone in authority at Caravanserai that in order to use our confirmed penthouse reservation we were going to have to sign the agreement as well as send them another payment of maint fees. What a shady operation! I will post again as soon as I get off the phone with RCI.

It Is for week 50. One saving grace in this whole thing for us is we also owned week 43 at Divi and wanted to put our 2 St.maarten weeks together so last year we were negotiating with Divi to move and upgrade to week 49 as well as Caravanserai for week 49. The clowns at Caravanserai wanted us to give them our Divi and pay a difference for the week at Caravanserai. At the time or sixth sense told us to go with Divi even though we love our penthouse. Thank God we went with Divi because we could have lost everything!

Lena checked again today and we still have both weeks reserved. We did trade into RI Terrasse for the first week and RI LaPlage for the second week. Maybe because we are not staying at Caravanserai the reservations are still being honored?

I suspect you are OK however I would definitely follow the posts and updates as well as getting on Jeff Berger's everything SXM and search caravanserai for his latest news
