In 2008, was doing just fine with Equivest as my Timeshare company. but they had sold out or supposing to have sold the resort to Festivia. Festivia called my room said they would like to show us some of the improvements they had done. So my husband and I attended the meeting, it was a total pressure sales gemic. Festivia sales personel told us that Equivest was going bankrupt, and they had bailed them out but in order to keep the level we had and improve the level we had to buy up to Festivia, that if we stayed with Equivest the maint. dues would triple and soon they would have to sell off their properties. So we felt we had to upgrade to stay at the level we were at. They told us we would owe 2900 and some odd amount to upgrade and that with Festivia out maintenane would be half the price of Equivest. Well long story short it was half for half the points. basically the same price for points but would only get those points every two years. Now you know anybody that actually was explained this to were they would understand would never change what they had been happy with, much less buy up with more money. Now we are getting triple maint. bills and even an assement bill that was never discussed that can be any amount they choose, and if past due that will turn you over to collection agent. com on it is my place, not theirs. sue the owner????? Please, Please, Please, no matter how good they make it sound, STOP!!!!!!!!!
