Beware, if you don't call and tell UVC you want your points rolled over they will charge you $200 "for not making a phone call"?! No reminder email, no reminder phone call..... just $200 for a phone call that their CUSTOMER must make. When you pay for the timeshare...

I find it very disappointing that as a member of UVC for several years, we are unable to book a trip to this hotel and are being told that there is no availability; however, if I go on the Villa Del Palmar website, there is total availability that week. Customer...

Think of "Villa del Palmar (VDP)" and "Universal Vacation Club (UVC)" as two separate entities. UVC Club is the sum total of memberships sold by VDP's sales team. When you p...

While on Vacation At Secrets in Punta Cana I attended a UVC presentation. It gave me a 2 Night 3 Day free Vacation. When I called I asked to extend my vacation package to more nights. They said I needed $199 dollars plus $20 dollars. Indicated to them I first wanted to...

Timeshare Promise Review

Universal Vacation Club

They will lie to you and tell you anything you want to hear. Watch out for Gareth. We were promised an every year timeshare, only to find out it was every other year. Big ripoff. Beware!! Don't get sucked into their trap.

This group has just gone down hill. you cannot ever get your week and always have to stay at substandard older locations. Then when u arrive and go to say Arco it is empty and or only people who are NON owners are occupying the premises. They NEVER give u an upgrade...

I purchased a 2 Bedroom, 2 weeks approx 15 years ago. The last time I went there, the quality of the resort has deteriorated and I refused to stay in the room allotted. I had to pay $800 extra to stay in the main hotel area,which is all tile and very clean. The added...

This is a horrible, greedy, lying company. Do not buy a timeshare from them. It's cheaper to rent a week. They are not loyal to their paying timeshare owners. You will never be able to book at villa del arco only at the villa del palmar. You can book at a cheaper rate...

As an owner we paid our maintenance fees over 45 days ago and the resort is still unable to get their records correct to make a reservation. Don't buy from this club. Go elsewhere! We wish we never bought into this club and wasted good money. We have spent thousands...

On June 28th, I foolishly bought a UVC membership and gave a $1000.00 down payment . I went to the hotel and did my research about UVC frauds and complaints and tried to cancel the next day. I went to the UVC to tell them I had other payments and priorities etc.. They...

On March 29, 1989, I became involved in a timeshare nightmare that won’t go away. I purchased a timeshare club membership for a one bedroom fixed week during Springbreak in Puerta Vallarta, Mexico at the Villa Del Mar resort, Universal Vacation Club, indicated as...
