Villa Preferred Access

The benefits of Villa Preferred Access are easy to distinguish for both existing timeshare owners and new buyers of timeshare at any of the Villa del Palmar resorts in Mexico. Villa Preferred Access is a timeshare points scheme that facilitates timeshare membership benefits at Villa del Palmar resorts in Mexico. Villa Preferred Access is a program introduced by The Villa Group, who are the developers and operators of the Villa del Palmar brand, which can be used in any of its affiliated resorts as well as used for exchanges with international vacation clubs such as Interval International.

What are the Benefits of Villa Preferred Access?

If you are new to timeshare, then you probably have the idea that timeshare ownership is divided into week blocks. In many cases, this is still true, particularly of older timeshare contracts, but in today’s fast paced world where flexibility is key, the benefit of Villa Preferred Access is that the scheme allows you to stay for as little as two nights and as long as your membership points allow. The limitations of fixed week timeshare intervals disappears and you can stay for the exact number of nights that you choose.

Other benefits of Villa Preferred Access include the flexibility of room choices. When you purchase a certain level of points with Villa Preferred Access, you can start to “mix and match” what you want each time you arrive to a Villa del Palmar resorts. For example, you may have bought Villa Preferred Access membership points that entitle you to two weeks in a one bedroom suite. Those points can then be used exactly how you wish. You could stay a shorter length of time in a timeshare two bedroom suite or a longer time in a studio, or even use some of your timeshare points to pay for an all inclusive meal plan and stay for a shorter length of time. One of the main benefits of Villa Preferred Access is that you can tailor your vacations to your needs every time using your exclusive Villa del Palmar timeshare membership.

Villa del Palmar Class Action Suits Warning

June 19, 2014 at 9:39 pm

Many reputable timeshare companies, including The Villa group (developers and operators of Villa del Palmar resorts) have issued warnings about bogus class action suits that a target long term and new timeshare owners.

What is a class action suit?

A class action suit is a joint case against a company or an individual whereby victims of scams or other fraudulent activity can essential club together and put a case forward. The advantages of a class action suit is that you share the cost of legal fees etc between all parties.

 

So why the warning about Villa del Palmar Class action suits?

The problem with Villa del Palmar class action suits is that Villa del Palmar is a genuine company and therefore it is very unlikely that you have been involved in a scam whereby you would win your case and receive a refund for your timeshare. Unscrupulous class action suit lawyers attract owners by claiming that you can get your money back when the reality is that you will simply be paying their fees for a case that is not going to win. Because it is a joint claim, the amount of money involved per individual claimant is not such a great deal, but together, the lawyers stand to make a great profit when they know there is very little chance of you winning.

 

When is a class action suit a good idea?

Class action suits are recommended if you and others have been involved in a widespread timeshare fraud, such as cases where you are sold a unit on a resort that does not exist or which is never completed. The best solution is to find other claimants yourself and then find a good timeshare lawyer.

 

What to do if you think you have been involved in a Villa del Palmar Scam

In the rare case that you feel you have grounds to claim that you have been subject to a Villa del Palmar scam, you should contact the company immediately or their operator Universal Vacation Club to report the scam.
