Feedback On Defender Resorts?

I own at a resort that changed management to Defender in the past year.

I do not understand why our board went with this company. I find them disorganized with respect to a mixup on my maintenance bill. Owners received their ballots for pending board officer elections that seem to have been full of mis-spelling even giving the address of the resort wrong.

Shell Vacations Club - Don't Go There

PLEASE READ ALL:

I just returned home from the Shell Vacation Club presentation. My career was in banking, so numbers matter to me and jump out at me, too. At the Arizona State Fair, I was talked into the timeshare presentation and went, since I travel often. The brochure I was given at that time offered a "free gift", if I went through the presentation. The presenter did a good job of explaining the general timeshare program, but would not talk cost. When she finished, the closer came in tell about the cost and financing. The cost was just under $30,000, with annual dues of $741. The interest rate was 16.99%!!! With your purchase, you could claim 7000 points for use on hotels.

Another Victim Scammed by Royal Holiday

Royal Holiday Scam at Wyndham Nassau Resort in New Providence Is Ruining Our Finances!

I was scammed--deceived, defrauded and duped--at the Wyndham Nassau Resort in New Providence, Nassau, in March 2011. I want to express my extreme frustration with Royal Holiday Club's predatory sales practices. Since I was hoodwinked into signing a contract with this unethical company, I have been obliged to pay $220 per month and an annual fee in excess of $1,000. In exchange I have received NO net benefits--I would have saved thousands and thousands of dollars by making travel arrangements myself for the one resort trip I did manage to work out with Royal Holiday Club. Including the inittial credit card payment of $15,000, over the past two years I have been obliged to pay them a total of $20,300.
