Why a Points Membership is the Best!

When it comes to your membership, a points membership gives you a lot of options. Vacations That Suit the Way You Travel Your points membership gives you the flexibility to book different type of units at each resort, and in different seasons. For example, right now you can book at Villa Del Palmar Cancun or Garza Blanca Puerto Vallarta. Later this year and into next year you will also be able to book at Garza Blanca Cancun, Garza Blanca Los Cabos, and Garza Blanca Riviera Maya with your points! Booking with points requires a minimum stay of 2 nights during the regular calendar and requires a minimum of 7 consecutive days during holidays. More Points Means More Flexibility The more points you own, the more flexible your program becomes! A points based membership means that you can use your allocated Club Points to book a short trip in a big unit or a long vacation in a smaller unit, or even two trips in one year in two different resorts.   For example, if you …

Staying Safe – Scam Checklist

Staying safe from scams is becoming more and more difficult, especially with the proliferation of scam companies operating on the internet and the more complex measures legitimate companies have to take to keep your personal data safe.  Here is a simple checklist for protecting your membership from a scam.   Resale scams Be wary of any resale company that contacts you unsolicited. Be especially careful if they use our company name or any of our associates such as ResortCom or UVCI to promote their services. We do not endorse any resale companies. Rental scams If you are looking to rent your vacation time at any of the resorts, be careful when agents ask you to pay fees upfront. These are usually scams. Again, we do not endorse any particular rental agency, so beware if any claim that we do. Timeshare lawyers Most people who claim to be a timeshare lawyer are trying to sell a bogus service and you end up paying money for false promises they cannot legally fulfill. You won’t realize you have …

Congratulations to the Club Caribe team for another successful Annual Members Meeting!

The 2018 Club Caribe Annual Members Meeting was a great success. Our theme was “Havana Nights” and the events replicated the mood inspired by Cuba in its heyday. This was the first time our Annual Meeting was held at Garza Blanca Preserve, giving everyone the chance to enjoy the beauty of Puerto Vallarta while receiving informative updates. We welcomed close to 100 participants this year to a meeting that offers opportunities for members to meet their Club and resort representatives as well as catch up with old friends and new. Meeting packets and gifts are provided to each member; this year’s conference gifts were “dress up” flowers and hats, Cuban-inspired fans with face mister, a thermos, and coffee that corresponded to the Havana Nights theme. With two days filled to the brim with events, the members left informed, enlightened, entertained, socialized and well fed. The Annual Meeting itself is a business meeting designed to hold Club Caribe elections and present important information to the membership in attendance. The meeting featured updates on Club Caribe membership, …

Banking and Borrowing Points

Banking and borrowing Club Caribe club points is yet another of the wonderful benefits your membership offers. You can bank points in preparation for a future vacation or borrow points to cover the amount you need for a particular reservation. The choice is yours. Why bank and borrow points? Just imagine that you have a special event like a birthday or special anniversary and wish to invite a number of your family members to join you in your home away from home. Imagine that you don’t have enough points to cover a three bedroom suite or penthouse; you could bank this year’s points entitlement or borrow points from up to 5 years into the future to put towards a larger unit that can accommodate everyone or even extend your stay. Whatever your reasons, Club Caribe makes it easy for you to administer your vacation points to suit you. How do banked points work? If you do not use all or any of your annual points allocation in one calendar year, full members can bank up …
