Club Astoria, is one of the company that offers holiday membership. I and my husband were invited for a free dinner and were to claim a free stay good for two in las vegas/thailand/puerto princess and the like. before we receive the said accomodation,we were to attend a two hour presentation about club astoria.
the presentation was good, i feel for the trap. I was to pay 20,000 pesos for the reservation but was charged up to 36,000 pesos instead. 9 hours to 2 days after november 11, 2011, my husband informed the manager that we decided not to continue anymore. The manager told us that we should think about it. After a weeks time we did informed and was told that our account was currently freeze, no other charges will be collected and a refund will be given since it was still within the 15 days cooling period.
Until today (January 7, 2012), no refund was given. Our other request such as: notarized copy of the agreement, membership ID was not given/mailed. This were some of the reasons that I and my husbad finally decided to stop the said membership. I tried to contact their customer service but was told that no refund will be given for such cancellation when infact we already communicated to them. May this be a lesson for all of you. Please be careful. Learn from this mistake. If someone offers you this please do think a billion times before deciding. If you have internet connection at home please do read more about the company. My experience is bad and i don't know for the others who are/were invited. I felt that I am a victim :(
