quote:Originally posted by SuebeWe own at CLC Las Farolas and have received our invoice for 2006 maintenance fees - now around £360 per week, part of that being an additional levy for apartment refurbishment (what ever happened to the sinking fund we were told is kept for this purpose??!!). Compared to some resorts, this may not seem a lot. The last contributor compared to Four Seasons at Vilamoura (I don't think CLC resorts are in the same league despite some of them being GC).When you compare what we were paying in 1998/99 when we first bought in to CLC - around £170 per week (and that apparently included a small levy) - it puts it more into perspective. There have regularly been higher than inflation increases at CLC. Is this a deliberate ploy to get people to walk away from their 'investment'? Is there a link to their emphasis on their Vacation Club as opposed to weeks owners?To the person who started this chain, if you go on your 'free' holiday, be prepared for the hard sell at the presentation you will have to attend. If you go forewarned though, you might not be tempted to buy at their exorbitant prices. You will no doubt be encouraged to buy into Vacation Club, their points system. If you think you might be interested in buying timeshare, check out prices with the resale companies. What would you rather pay - around £1,500-£2,000 or £10,000-15,000 which you might be asked at a presentation? You will get a free holiday which you will no doubt enjoy but your bank balance may well be seriously depleted if you get carried away by the rose-tinted selling of their sales team!!Sue B [8D]
