When you say your "experience with Captain Morgans time share has been unpleasant to put it kindly", does that mean you actually purchased? I ask because we did puchase last year and although we love the resort, we have felt some misrepresentations have happened. I would be interested in others feedback on timeshare ownership there.

Also... I should note that the timeshare office is making an attempt to make everything right. And the two woman that run their timeshare business in the US are very helpful. I just didnt want to leave others with a negative impression, just interested in others experiences.

Yes, we did purchase. We are trying to get the people at Captain Morgans to contact us so perhaps we can settle some of the things we feel were misrepresented. Will get back on the board with details when we hear from them.

I'm sure Captain Morgan's will square things up with you.

In other, non-related, cases owners have gone to the exchange company for assistance or in Belize, the Belize Tourism Board.

Let us do the math
20000 usd for a timeshare
75 usd for RCI membership p.a.
650usd for maintainance p.annum (which will go up every year-there is no way that maintainance should be 30000 usd per year per appt.)
250usd per week swopped
cannot take advantage of cheap flights as must fly on sat or sunday-must plan holidays way in advance to get ones "floating week" at required date.
try seliing you T/S-the company you buy it from will not even guarantee 50% back-saying property caqn go up and down-personally in my experience over a 10 year period property prices double except for T/S
This is not saying that Capt Morgans missrepresent anything they do not (to my knowledge) and it is a very nice resort.

Pedro1- What is "RCI" membership? Also, so I understand your math, how did you come up with the $30,000 usd per year per appt.?

Thanks for the help.

Not intending to speak for Pedro, but just in case he is busy. http://www.rci.com/index explains that and $650 times 52 weeks is his math.

Thanks bywarren. Got it! We are with Interval International. I guess RCI is another T/S membership co.

Captain Morgan's will offer an "out" if you feel you have been misled.

A quality timeshare developer (Starwood, Marriot, etc.) finds no need to misrepresent the product to produce sales.

If you choose interval ownership go with an experienced developer with a established track record.

Timeshare can be limiting for some but on the other hand open up many oppurtunities for others. It is not for everyone, and like everything else has its pros and cons.

Perhaps you should contact the developer's lawyer in Wisconsin if the sales department doesn't work things out with you.
