We have just returned from Grand Mayan vacation. We made the mistake to attend the Grupo Myan introduction to...
HIGH PRESSURE, FRAUDULENT MEMBERSHIP SALES:
HSI is raping innocent tourists on the Mayan Riviera in Mexico with their "Taste of Paradise" package.
Key points tourists at Grand Mayan Riviera Maya & Mayan Palace should know:
1. Free breakfast and 1 hour tour of hotel is a scam to lure you into a day-long sales event. They will frankly lie to you to coerce you to sign. If you do decide to go, DO NOT TAKE YOUR CREDIT CARD because it will be swipe at some point.
2. HSI sales agents will arrive to harrass you after you have said "No Thank You" a hundred times to RCI sales people. HSI sales agents will lie to you to falsely represent their product as follows:
-100 year term of membership is for 25 years on the actual contract you sign. You can renew it in 25 years for whatever price they set in 25 years $$$, if they are still in business of course.
-Their sales office is at luxurious and beautiful resorts, Grand Mayan and Mayan Palace; however, these resorts, in addition to all Grupo Mayan resorts, Grand Luxe, and others, are excluded from the travel program. People naturally assume that they can use their membership at the resort where they are staying and buying a travel membership, but this is a false assumption.
-There is a $15-40 booking fee every time you reserve with HSI. Just one more fee that is not disclosed.
-After you pay the $6000 enrollment fee, you pay $99 per year for membership. They bad-mouth RCI, but RCI, a more established and older company, charges $400 for 5 years or $80/year. When you add up the hidden charges, HSI is more expensive
-After you sign and pay your $[protected] membership enrollment fee, this amount is non-refundable. If you sign, pay, but then decide to cancel within hours or days, they will tell you that you can cancel. Yes, you can cancel, but you do not get your $6000 enrollment fee back. After all, on the contract you signed where it says your enrollment fee is not refundable, and the sales agents will shove the signed contract into your face. **THERE IS NO 5 DAY RESCIND PERIOD FOR HSI**
-You are still paying your maintenance fees when you use your weeks every year. Thus, you are not reducing or saving your maintenance fees. You are just paying for them when you book your weeks. If they promise to rent your unit and give you $1700/week, they will dedcut $650 for maintenance fees; however, none of these transactions are disclosed in their contract, nor would they put it in writing.
-The burn weeks for $100 for 1 day or 1 week is basically a last-minute deal. If you can wait until last minute to book something and you have a lot of time to spend on their website or by phone, you might be able to get something for $100. This benefit is not any different from purchasing last minute deals through RCI, II, or other websites.
-They deserve the award of the year for having the most arrogant, unprofessional, rude, condescending, and sneakiest staff. How can they expect to earn the trust of people when they blatantly lie and twist the truth to their clients? If they really want people to buy into their company, then they should give them the facts, period. If they were selling a great product, then they wouldn't have to trick you by falsely representing their product.
-The small gifts are not worth wasting your whole day with these people. They will spend about $50 on you for your whole day. That's about $7 per hour-are we really that cheap? Make sure you pack your lunch and a co0ler because they won't give you anything after your free breakfast.
In conclusion, Hospitality System International (HSI) and it's "Taste of Paradise" package is just another travel scam on the Mexican Riviera that you should avoid. Keep your eyes open for the next Class Action Lawsuit against them, or they may mysteriously go out of business in few years after they've taken your money.
Totally unprofessional. Las Vegas, NV 8/26/2010. Contacted by the operations manger of Holiday Systems while on the east coast during vacation. Live in Henderson, Nv. Contacted me for position as a Senior Recruiter for the company in LV. Interview confirmed twice. Flew back to NV. Arrived 20 minutes early for interview and introduced myself to admin. personnel, waited 20 minutes. Young gentleman came out and informed me position already filled, no call to cancel interiew, no email, no text, no smoke signals, no ops manger. One hour travel time plus. Was aware of reviews and all the bad print before going but kept an open mind. *** Me.
If you are considering investing any money with HSI, RUN, DON'T WALK, as fas as you can in the other direction. They are no better than snake-oil peddlers. Their guarantee means NOTHING. It is just part of their fraudulent sales pitch. I have attempted to use my membership benefits and had no success. For a recent trip I was able to book a hotel on line and in my preferred location much cheaper than anything they had to offer. Many of the resorts listed in their Vacation Guide are not available through them. I was told, "We do not do enough business with them to offer wholesale rates." This is certainly not what we were lead to believe. THIS IS THE FIRST COMPLAINT ABOUT ANYONE I HAVE EVER POSTED ON THE INTERNET. I am not easily disgruntled, but I thought everyone should be warned about HSI .
I HAVE WORKED A LOT OF PLACES IN MY LIFE BUT LORD I HAVE NEVER WORK FOR A ### WHOLE COMPANY LIKE HSI. IF YOU HAVE HSI AS A MEMEBERSHIP I WOULD THINK TWICE. IF YOU THINK AS A CONSUMER YOU ARE TREATED BAD YOU SHOULD SEE HOW THE EMPLOYEES ARE TREATED. FIRST THE CEO OF THE COMAPNY HAS CAMERAS EVERYWHERE. /censored/ SECONDLY SINCE WE ARE STILL TALKING ABOUT THE CEO. HE HAS NO I MEAN NO RESPECT FOR ANYONE WHO WORKS FOR HIM. HE DEGRADES THEM IN FRONT OF OTHERS. WHAT SURPRISES ME IS THAT THESE( NOT ALL) MANAGERS COULD LEAVE THERE AND FIND ANOTHER JOB WHERE THERE SKILLS WILL BE APPRECIATED, BUT THEY JUST LOVE BEING BELITTLED BY THESE MAN. HE HAS NO DIGNITY NO CHARACTER. EXAMPLE THE OTHER DAY HE PASSED OUT A MEMO STATING HOW MUCH IT COST TO RUN HSI ON A MONTHLY BASIS AND THAT WE ARE IN A SENSE NOT WORTH OUR SALARY. BUT HE DID FORGET TO MENTION IN HIS MEMO THAT HE JUST BOUGHT A NEW 150, 000 CAR. SO YOU TELL ME WHATS MORE IMORTANT TO HIM. IT WAS FUNNY WHEN ARDA CAME TO TOWN HE MADE HIS MANAGERS SHOW OFF WHAT THEY WERE GOING TO WEAR TO GET APPROVAL. WHAT WHAT KIND OF ### IS THAT. THE FEES MAY BE A LITLLE LESS EXPENSIVE THAN RCI AND II BUT THEIR QUALITY IS A. LOT BETTER THAN HSI. I WOULD TELL ANYONE THAT WANTS TO WORK THERE TO RETHINK THAT,
TACO BELL IS BETTER. AND WATCH OUT FOR SOCARTES, THAT IS EITHER THE CEO OR SOMEONE HE BAMBOZZLED INTO WRITING NICE THINGS ABOUT HSI WHEN ITS A HELL WHOLE. I HAVE RENAMED THE COMPANY TO HELL ### INC. THATS WHAT HSI STANDS FOR. GET YOUR MONEY BACK IF YOU CAN . DO NOT INVEST INTO HSI
