Puerto bahia timeshares

Has anyone purchased a timeshare at Puerto Bahia Villas in (near) Puerto Vallarta? If so have you stayed in it? My concern is this may be a scam. My friends recently traded some other timeshares and gave money for villa timeshares that are supposed to be ready in 6 (now 4) months.

If it looks like a skunk, and smells like a skunk, the odds of it being a skunk are better than 50/50.

(Just my take. . . .)

Sorry, my sympathy levels for people who go on timeshare presentations is really low.

I sense that the freebies were what drew you in.

Yes we purchased a fractional ownership at Puerto Bahia Villas and Spa in September 2012

promised us many things as a "Charter Member" but they were all lies. DO NOT give these scammers any money.

we just came back from PV 3 weeks ago and checked out the place (they wouldn't let us stay there because we had to own for a year) and the clubhouse is finished as well as the tower and several villas, I will say they are beautiful but my advise is to put your money someplace that is safe and not with these crooks. Don't believe anything they say

I was scammed into using my Visa credit card for a "Downpayment" of $10,000. When got home to think more about it, the 5 days to rescind was up! My credit card company would not reverse the charges because Puerto Bahia sendt them a copy of the signed contract. I fee like such a fool. I will never recover this money. DO NOT GO TO ANY OF THEIR PRESENTATIONS!

They are just horrible. I was sooooo completely frustrated and upset with all the lies. I hope you didn't get ripped off like so many others.
