I feel bad for those who do not follow threads like this and exchanged into the resort and have NO clue that, when they arrive, they will have no place to stay.

It would not have taken much effort for RCI to make a list of ALL that exchanged into the resort and let them know what's up....

I check my flights and reconfirm my car rental times but I never call a resort to see if I actually have a place to stay....

Ok, do you KNOW that RCI has not contacted people who had exchanged into Caravanseri? I'm not saying that they have or they haven't, but you're just assuming that they haven't?

There also could be at least some Caravanseri t/s owners who show up, not knowing what happened either. The only notice I have heard about Alegria giving to t/s owners is by email and we all know how often email can go astray. Otherwise, I think the only way someone would know is if they read about it online and many people aren't internet savvy. Plus, some people could have gotten the email and deleted it as spam..

Plus if people have changed their email address as some do frequently and failed to notify the resort they would never get a notification.

I "own" two weeks at Caravanserai. I also traded one of those weeks in for points to trade into Caravanserai for the week prior to one of my weeks (ie. we own week 31 and 32, but needed week 30 and 31). As of now, RCI still shows me as having TWO CONFIRMED reservations at Caravanserai. One for my home unit, and one for the unit I traded in to. So they are NOT notifying either the owners or the people trading into Caravanserai, as we qualify as both and if we were not on SXM websites we would have no idea that neither one of those reservations (which we made in August) would likely be honored.

I am pretty sure there are people out there who have booked flights in the time between the sale of the property to Alegria and now, during which time RCI was alerted to the situation repeatedly. And I have never opened any email sent to me by Alegria. As far as I was concerned, the subject heading of the email looked like a spam timeshare offer (it did not mention Caravanserai, and I only knew the name Alegria because of posts on TTOL and from Marty). Had I not known the name Alegria as it relates to Caravanseri, the email would have been immediately tagged and sent to spam, without being opened. I suspect that is how a lot of people treated that email who had no idea about the Caravanserai/Alegria connection and still don't have an idea to this day because that has been the ONLY communication (I never got a second email, I have never gotten anything through regular mail, and I have gotten no notification from RCI).

Since I have not read of ANY members that exchanged into Caravanseri being notified I though it safe to "assume" that they were not notified but I guess they could have notified everyone but they just haven't shared it here.

I am not an RCI member nor do (did) I own at Caravanseri so I am going by what I read here. I do belong to II and I do "own" at SBR so I feel I have an interest in this situation.
