Bluegreen Resorts Sucks big time!!!!

We were *** enough to make a reservation with this time share vacation group, paid $49.00. We later found out that we could not go, and called to cancel. We were told there are no refunds, and a $38.00 reschedule fee would apply since we were more than 30 days after booking the reservation. Also found that if we had not called, we would have been charged a $75.00 no show fee. What a crock! We did not reschedule, wouldn't buy anything from these people at this point! So we are out $49, but have learned a lesson...

I don't know how Bluegreen could have sold you property in Kentucky when they don't own any there. I don't know how many points you own, I don't believe it could be very many if your payment is only $164.00 per month. Bluegreen's maintenance fees...

While we are happy with the Blue Green points we own, we have not had issues booking time. The only issue we have is with the sales teams during "upgrade meetings".

These folks are rude and will lie to get more out $$$ out of you. I'm not interested doesn't mean NO to the salesman.

It only means call in the closer to talk to you like you are ***. If this continues, we're out!!

Almost all of the Bluegreen Resorts I have been to have been nice. A couple of things to watch out for at Christmas Mtn.

One, if you stay in one of the campground rooms, they are awful. Dont accept that lodging. The other thing is we had a heck of a time in the winter staying in one of the lodges on a hill. I had to park on a snowy hill and my car slid all over.

It was awful. Bluegreen has better properties than some of the other timeshare companies!!

I recently took advantage of a marketing package to the Fountains in Orlando. The 4 nights for the price was good. The catch is I had to attend an owners update. This started out as a very friendly review of what we had. Then we were told that there were several changes being made and the only way to take advantage of them was to do a mandatory upgrade and the min upgrade was 5000 points. My wife and I turned that down. Then the hadsell double team started. Mary Martin was our sales rep and she brought in her manager who insulted and belittled us for not understanding the benefits we would be giving up. He left to "notify corporate". He returned with a 4000 point offer. We declined. I told Mary that I felt insulted and it was time to end this and that the salesmanager had beeter not return. Now another sale rep moved in to advise we could by 3000 points and take advantage of the upgrade. We did finally take advantage of the 3000 points to upgrade the contract, get it to an annual contract and get the unlimited RCI bonus time. Mary told us that the 4000 bonus points we would get for the upgrade were unrestricted. The form was not given to us until the next day and they were exactly what I had told her were worthless to me. The could only be used during blue or white weeks. I returned the next day to speak with Mary and all I got was I thought they were unrestricted. I was lied to in this case about the points that had to be purchased and the bonus points. When I originally bought I was lied to as well about how the bi annual contracts worked.

I have never had a problem that wasn't taken care of with the Resorts, but the Sales department are several steps under the stereotyped used car salesman. They lie and smile and smile and lie just to make the sale.

I have now filed a complaint with the Florida, Virginia and Nevada attornies general. I have not heard back from any of them. I expect Virginia will respond the quickest as I live in Virginia and Know the current Attorney General.

My best advise is expect to be lied to and ask for written verification of everything you are told and read it carefully. The bright spot in this incident at the Fountains is that I placed a digital recorder on the table and recorded the entire discussion. That was snet with each of my complaint letters.

Bluegreen Resorts in New Britain, Connecticut - There is a solution...check it out!!!

Hello to all, I thought I would let you know there is a solution. I wrote the FTC got nowhere...so there is a company working on our behalf as Owner's... It is called: Owener's Advocate (866) 925-8822 For a small fee they will open a case file and Advocate on your behalf. So very many people have pleased, impressed with the work they are doing. So give them a call, and see for yourselves, at least it is a small answer. Maybe, just maybe when enough of us bail out of Bluegreen the company will start to take notice. I have decided to cut my looses and RUN!!! Take care...Good Luck!

Bluegreen resorts

we have been owners with Bluegreen Resorts for 7 years. We could not be more satisfied with this company and it is everything that it claims to be. you do have to know the rules and book your trips in advance since availability during peak seasons is limited. We could never stay at the really nice resorts because they were just to expensive! the bluegreen places are beautiful and so clean! tons of activities for the kids and the staff members are top notch! as far as the sales presentations, they are certainly pushy but they are just doing their job! you have to learn to be firm and say no when something is out of your reach! Just say no! works for me! i just go to get my free gifts! we have never stayed or been trapped by then for more than 80-90 minutes. i just use that time to catch up on all the changes and new properties! i have given travel gifts to my parents and my in-laws for christmas gifts ,ad traded using RCI with no trouble whatsoever! good luck and happy travels with Bluegreen! rhonda

Tell it like it is is wrong they do not increase the number of points each ownership is linked to a deed which is held in trust by BGVC if you bought in 2003 then in 2011 that unit still uses the same number of points
