With so much negative publicity on timeshare resorts and the hype surrounding certain resorts that refuse to negotiate or cancel burdensome and unwanted timeshares, we decided to take a look at the other side. There are resorts who understand that some timeshare owners face personal hardships, changed circumstances, or simply cannot handle the financial burdens of their timeshare. Rather than group all consumers into a one-size-fits-all category, these resorts take the time to consider individual timeshare owners and may be willing to negotiate a timeshare contract cancellation for the consumer when a good case for timeshare divestment is presented.
The list below represents a rating and grade scale based on divestment protocols and positive results for consumers:
A+: Leaders in Timeshare Divestment and Consumer Results
Wyndham is a stellar leader in timeshare divestment. Though it’s a world leading timeshare giant, Wyndham is able to focus on the needs of the consumer ahead of their bottom line. This good will is exemplary. Now relief is not just comprehensive and industry-leading clean, but also very timely. Wyndham gets the highest consumer protection attorney ratings.
A: Consistently Contribute to Positive Outcomes for Consumers
Diamond Resorts, Pueblo Bonito, Grupo Mayan, QM Resorts
These resorts contribute to positive outcomes in securing needed relief for consumers with good divestment cases. Earning recognition for compassionate relief, they provide clean exit documents in a very timely fashion. Consumer protection attorneys rate them very high.
B/C: Responsible and Generally Fair Consumer Treatment (noted exceptions)
Welk Resorts, Grand Vacation Services, Advanced Resorts of America, Club Exploria, InnSeason, The Ridge Tahoe, Grand Timber Lodge, Quarter House, Kings Plantation and Capital Resorts, Berkley Group/Vacation Village/Lando Resorts/Eldorado
These resorts act fairly and responsibly to most of their consumers and will typically provide releases if a good divestment case is presented (noted exceptions hold them at C or B grades).
F: Non-Consumer Friendly & Require Litigation
Westgate, Hilton, BlueGreen Vacations, Geo Holiday Group/Safire/Starpoint, ResortsCom/The Villa Group in Mexico, (F-) Holiday Inn (Orange Lake and Silverleaf)
These resorts are the ones to avoid at all costs! Known in the Timeshare Industry as the “The Dirty Dozen,” these resorts are infamous for their absolute refusal to release worthy timeshare owners from their timeshares, regardless of whether sales contracts were purchased under fraud or duress.
