The Background to Villa del Palmar Brand
January 23, 2017
The Villa del Palmar brand is one known to be trustworthy and high-quality in Mexico. This is not surprising when you consider the fact that it was created, and is operated, by one of the most trusted and excellent timeshare providers in the world: Villa Group Resorts (majority owned by Tafer Hotels & Resorts). This pioneer of the timeshare industry has been committed to vacation experiences for over 30 years providing excellent and innovative vacation experiences to customers in the USA, Mexico, Canada, and even in Europe! Not only does the Villa Group offer the best resorts and experiences, but it knows the hospitality industry inside and out from resort management and design to construction, and travel agency services.
Villa del Palmar and how it all began
The Villa del Palmar, however, is one of the crown jewel brands in the Villa Group collection operating in a number of top vacation hot-spots in Mexico. The very first Villa del Palmar resort opened in Puerto Vallarta not long after the development of the Villa del Mar resort, and was developed on the back of the success of the first timeshare resort. When a second Villa del Palmar resort was built in Cabo San Lucas along with the Villa la Estancia and Villa del Arco Cabo resorts, a quality brand was fully defined!
The Villa del Palmar Flamingos resort in Nuevo Vallarta was named thanks to the neighbourhood in which it stood, and brought the excellence and luxury for which the Villa del Palmar stands to the golf lovers of the world (the resort is near many world class courses). Soon after, the high-end Villa la Estancia (the second of its name) was opened in Riviera Nayarit.
The pinnacle of the Villa del Palmar brand, however, and the true embodiment of its values and desired effects can be found in the Cancun and Islands of Loreto resorts which, despite standing in wholly different areas, manage to represent every aspect of the Villa del Palmar vision beautifully.

Villa del Palmar Timeshare Scams
The first thing to consider when faced with Villa del Palmar timeshare scams is that you need to work out if you have actually been involved in a scam. If you have purchased timeshare membership from the sales room at a Villa del Palmar resort in Cancun, Puerto Vallarta, Nuevo Vallarta, Cabo San Lucas or Loreto, you can be sure you have not been involved in a Villa del Palmar timeshare scam. However, if that is not the case, you may need to take heed of the following article.
Rental Agency Scams for Villa del Palmar Timeshare
If you have been busy lately and want to earn some money from any unused vacation time at your timeshare by renting it out, be careful when choosing your rental agent. Rental agency scams for Villa del Palmar timeshare are a possibility. Beware those rental agencies who represent themselves as real rental agent but want to charge you for a range of services before even finding a renter for your timeshare. These fees can involve joining dues, evaluations of your timeshare property and even introduction fees. The best thing to do when searching for a reputable agent to rent your Villa del Palmar timeshare is to ask for references and reviews from happy customers that will prove their authenticity as true rental agent. Better yet, get the services of those who ask for commissions after a completed work rather than getting those who ask for upfront fees.
Villa del Palmar Timeshare Resale Scams
Resale scams for Villa del Palmar timeshare owners can affect both buyers and owners. Owners of a Villa del Palmar timeshare can be scammed when the fraudsters call or send an email informing timeshare owners that there is a prospective buyer who is interested in their membership and is willing to shell out a big amount of money. In return for their actions, they charge a high fee to pass on the identity of the buyer. The reality is that there is no buyer.
On the other hand, you also have Villa del Palmar scams for those claiming to be reselling a timeshare. You think you have bought 10 years of a Villa del Palmar timeshare only to find that there is just a couple of years left and a backlog of maintenance fees to be paid before you can even use the timeshare.
Some bogus companies will offer to cancel your Villa del Palmar timeshare membership on your behalf and pretend to have lawyers who can legally do it. At first, they’ll say it’s free, but later on when things heat up, they’ll ask you for payment of this, payment for that. Later, once you think your Villa del Palmar timeshare has been cancelled, you will get a surprise when the vacation club issue reprimands for default payments. That’s the time that the poor timeshare owner will know he was duped and fooled.
What will I do if I become a victim of scammers?
Villa del Palmar timeshare can do very little on behalf of the victims of these kinds of scams, although you should inform them of the scam as soon as possible. You can directly inform them of what happened by contacting their Member Services department. You can also get in touch with governing authorities like the Federal Trade Commission by calling the number of its Business Fraud Division at 1-877-382-4357. There’s also the state attorney general’s office to extend some assistance, and you can search their contact numbers either on the internet or the yellow pages.
Take the time to go to ARDA and share your story of fraud, or visit their website, arda.com. Be wise and save your evidence, such as the emails that scammers sent you or any written materials they gave. These can strengthen your case, and can eventually lead to getting justice for your fate.
