Monique Hoffman--lawyer in St. Maarten
      #1609867 - 10/15/14 03:15 PM (50.70.29.170)

Has anyone had any dealings with this lawyer? I emailed her regarding the situation at Caravanserai and I have yet to hear back from her. I would like to know if she is doing a class action suit or does each owner have to contact her in regards to filing a claim or suit against Alegria? If anyone has any information, could you post it to this site

With the facts that I have read here and other places along with the correspondence from Alegria I doubt if any class action suit would be of any benefit. Fault really is on Manek with filled bankruptcy which is probably cleared of all liability in this matter.
All I can say is good luck but it is probably throwing good money after bad.

The property was foreclosed on yes, filed for bankruptcy that I don't remember. Does not mean that they will not, but cannot find anything about a bankruptcy.

Kildaire Propeties Ltd is an offshore company registered in the British Virgin Islands.

I have a couple of questions.

Don't you have to pay the yearly MF bill to keep your contracts current?
If you don't pay, does that make the contracts void per contract terms?
Has anyone received the 2015 MF bill?
Who would you send the money to? The current owner ( Alegria)? the past owner ( The bank)? OR the owner before that (Manek)?

SXM??? Wendell

Wendell--to me, the people who really have something to gripe about is the people who paid their 2014 fees and have a 2014 week where they haven't stayed there yet. Those people will have to pay twice for the same thing. That stinks..

We would have fallen into that category however we traded to stay at RI way back in February because we were disgusted at the way Caravanserai was being maintained, green pool, no elevator, ect. We have checked several times with RCI and it looks like our reservation is still valid. If all else fails when we arrive on Nov. 1st, its a good thing we have made many friends on island who may end up having a few extra house guests, lol.

Yes, that would stink. But with a place in limbo for the past year or so I might have held back paying till I knew the outcome of ownership of the buildings and the intention of the new owner. Be interesting to see how the rest of the year plays out.

When my wife and I first bought into Caravanserai in 2006 we never did have a warm and fuzzy about the contract for full ownership. We had full ownership contracts on timeshares in St. Maarten since 1998 and had not seen anything like Maneks contract. We contacted and made an appointment with Ms. Hoffman to show her the contract. She revised it and suggested to us we get out of the contract because she had never seen any contract like it before. She questioned if we really owned our unit and her advice was to get our money back. We sold our week 4 at Caravanserai but held on to the 2 bedroom unit on the point because it was a dream of ours. Luckily we always remembered what Ms. Hoffman said so when things never got any better we sold the 2 bedroom two years ago. I think Ms. Hoffman is a very intelligent attorney and saw something even back then that wasn't right. If we ever had any legal problems on the Island we wouldn't hesitate a second in using her again. Hope this helps.
