Timeshare Scams in Mexico: Garza Blanca

Timeshare scams are an unfortunate reality but you will find that there are easy ways to avoid timeshare scams in Mexico so that you can successfully purchase genuine properties for a fraction of the price.

Buying a timeshare directly from Garza Blanca Residence Club during one of their presentations on site is the easiest way to avoid a timeshare scam and be sure that you are purchasing a legitimate product. Scams associated with Garza Blanca are not the result of dealing with Garza Blanca Residence Club but from buying from or selling to resale companies who claim to be able to sell your timeshare at great prices or to sell you one at a huge discount. These scams appear too good to be true because they are … too good to be true.

When you deal with Garza Blanca Residence Club you can be sure that you are getting the real deal. This timeshare and fractional ownership developer has nearly 30 years in the business and is completely legitimate. In fact, reputable companies like Garza Blanca Residence Club have worked hard to survive the bad press generated by resale scams and other timeshare scams that affect the reputation of the industry. In order to counteract this tendency, Garza Blanca’s rules of conduct and sales tactics are of a high standard, working on the premise that this stunning resort will sell itself.

Nevertheless, there are ways to protect yourself from a Garza Blanca timeshare scam:

1. Only buy a Garza Blanca timeshare during a presentation on site and not in a sale’s room outside of the resort (unless you are certain that the seller is authorized to sell Garza Blanca timeshares).

2. Do not buy a Garza Blanca timeshare from an Internet site.

3. Avoid Garza Blanca resale companies.

4. Do not pay any fees upfront if you wish to sell your Garza Blanca timeshare.

5. If in doubt, contact Garza Blanca Residence Club through their official website: http://www.garzablancaresidenceclub.com

  1. Not all time shares are bad, actually, a time share can be a good purchase for someone who does enjoy revisiting the same destination each year.

    However, vacation properties are not for most people, being that they only seem to work for people with very specific vacation desires.

    Time shares are not for people who like to enjoy trying a new vacation spot each year, nor for people who like to travel spontaneously, or families who do not use to stay at expensive resorts.

  2. We just purchased at Garza Blanca in Vallarta. However, we are considering canceling. The reason is that many things promised to us in our sales presentation aren’t in our paperwork or are different in our paperwork. At the end of our paper signing ritual, a lady explained to us and had us sign a paper to the effect that whatever is in the paperwork is what you get, nothing more, even if the salesperson told you otherwise.

    I searched the web for reviews of Garza Blanca memberships and have only found one that is from a consumer and he was very unhappy. Every review, such as yours, appears to be written by Garza Blanca OR, GBRC is a reputable and good place to purchase. It’s just odd that I can’t find any reviews from happy members.

    1. Jeff, thank you for your comment. As an ethical rule, I try not to write about hotels and leisure companies where I have an extreme negative opinion; it is not my intention to put places out of business but rather to commend companies that offer great services or in this case genuine vacation ownership opportunities. Unless it is an out and out scam I avoid bad-mouthing in favor of positive referrals of those places I do recommend. I have heard many positive comments about Garza Blanca and there are plenty of reviews on TripAdvisor too, so I think you are pretty safe in your purchase. Let me know how you get on with your timeshare.
