I was another sucker who bought into this nightmare as an 'investment'. Now that I am $22k lighter and had a bilateral lobotomy, I see the error of my ways and hope others read these notes BEFORE venturing into this den of thieves. I tried to book a suite in December or January of 2004/2005 and was told nothing was... More

These people are crooked beyond belief. Don't even go near this place. I got duped into a timeshare contract with these guys and cancelled a couple of days later. Only to find out 2 weeks later that they hadn't cancelled anything (even though I confirmed at the time), were not refunding my deposit and were threatening to take legal action... More

After 3+ hours, we, too, signed on the dotted line and gave them our credit card. Luckily, we read the small print and realized our poor judgment. We returned the following day to cancel pursuant to the 5 day termination clause in the contract. After being forced to under go more strong-arms sales we finally received a contract termination document... More

We went to one of there so called timeshare meetings. Three hours later they finally wore us done to buy one of their timeshares. I was promised that it would be no problem backing out if we want to. We called, wrote and sent a fed ex letter to cancel within their five days and they still are saying we... More

It's not the resort's fault that Hurricane Ivan took away their beach, but we found it interesting that the fact wasn't mentioned in the three telephone calls reminding our hosts that the all-inclusive fee is mandatory. Such is the priority structure at Fishermen's. The property has three owners, two of whom are sales-oriented. Perhaps that's why the comfort of the... More

Well, we started out being misled and ended up being misled. It's amazing how many people are involved in these "timeshare scams". They start you out with a couple of nice "local" people that tell you things like, "Yeah, all you have to do is just check out our rooms to see if you would like to stay at our... More

We purchased a Time Share at FV in Feb. 2003. I wanted to book for Feb. 2005 and all is already all booked. This is very disappointing as they are selling new memberships everyday so obviously they are selling way more memberships than there are rooms available. We are trying to sell our time share but have not had any... More
