To all of you, my wife and I went on vacations to the beautiful Cancun this past May 2013 and we were attending a Timeshare presentation at El Cid, where we were convinced to buy a membership but based on lies, we were offer that we could use our membership at any time and it will include airfare, activities, rental cars and a lot of more things, well let me tell you that we tried to use the membership and SURPRISE!! we had to reserve at least 90 days in advance... they used their "hightech" and showed us how "easy" was to use their program based in ponits, and at the end when we told the sales person that we could not afford it then they offered it as the best program for invest our money arguing that we could rent our points through them bacause as they have other resorts in Mexico they "need" those rooms for their Golf Tournaments celebrated in Mazatlan and conventions etc, (yeah right) also they told us that we could make some extra money renting some of our weeks because as "VIP" members we would have unlimited bonus weeks so we could rent them and make a profit ( sure), if you want to use at least one of those weeks you have to call them and they will reserve it for you which means that you cannot use as many weeks as they said you coud do business with...we have tried to contact them and my wife is a latin person so we have sent them messages in English and Spanish but they just ignore us, we are would like to take legal action agaist them but if we join we could do something better, I have investigated the names of the "big fishes" and I got two whom apparentelly are the owners, so Mr. Julio and Carlos Berdege if you know of these practices of your sales team you should do something otherwise you will have to go to Court one of these days, I will not stop until I get my money back and I will post my experience in every paga on line

    Well, I can ditto every bad thing that has ever been said about an El Cid timeshare. However, we feel very fortunate that we got out from underneath the pack of lies we purchased. We contacted an attorney, and after a little time and some well spent money, we are under no obligation anymore and we no longer have an El Cid Timeshare!! No matter what time of day it is, that's something that is worth celebrating. Don't give up!!! Get out!!! And don't fall for Frank Fallon as your salesperson! Lies, lies, lies...Blessed that we never have to go there again. Perhaps we may wander through however and gloat just a little:

    How did you get out? What did you do? I am in the midst of the lies right now. 4 months ago I purchased and El Cid has 6 months to pay me $30, 000 for my Wyndham ownership. I am scared (assume) that it is not going to happen. Help!?!?!?

    They will not pay you for anything. Not trade in timeshares, not rental fees and not reimburse what you have paid them. They are crafty liars and the laws in Mexico are so loose that they get away with it.
