Lifestyle Vacation Club / Misrepresentation
We were very impressed with the location and presentation at Puerta Plata. However, we had time shares with Diamond Resorts and did not want to spend money at the time. Our maintenance fees were payable in three (3) weeks. We were told that Lifestyle would pay for those fees and we would not be liable for the 2012 fees. We were also told that the transfer cost for our timeshare(s) would be no more than $80.00 per time share. When we got home we found out that we were still liable for the 2012 maintenance fees and that the cost for each transfer was $425 (over five times the amount quoted).
We have been trying to get some restitution, but have not even been able to obtain a name and/or address of any one in top management. I am now in the process of writing to the local chamber of commerce and the better business bureau. I do not expect to get any satisfaction, but hope those organizations will prevent others from receiving the same type of misinformation (LIES) that we did
