I have a time share at Occidental Aruba an older "optional contract" (I don't have to buy the all inclusive food and drink) during weeks 2 to 17. This optional contract is great in Aruba since Aruba has tremendous restaurants. All the newer time share contracts you Must pay for the all inclusive. Reservations have to be made 1 year in advance. Inventory "is not released" until exactly 1 year in advance at 9am eastern. Last year and this year I called for reservations and phoned in at 859am and was told there is no more inventory. How is that possible if inventory is not released until 9am. Then I was told that by special request the Aruba Grand would release additional inventory to give me reservations but I would be required to pay their all inclusive. I know they are purposely blocking the optional contracts they sold to us so they can accommodate the more profitable all inclusive contracts. They sold me 2 weeks and pitched me that because I am a 2 week owner I "would never have problems making reservations" and now they are not honoring their contract. I feel I have been scammed! Has anyone else experienced this? I heard there may be a class action suit organizing against this. Can any one give me advice.Edited: 8:04 pm, January 25, 2013
