This is my second review - my first being this month - “Bluegreen not being responsible.” We have been Bluegreen Owners for 10 years and because of our ownership we have traveled approximately twice a year. Always with nice accommodations. We probably would not have done this if we hadn’t become owners. This year we made reservations in May and a week before we were to arrive in September Bluegreen cancelled our reservation with little explanation. We were upset as non-refundable plane tickets were bought. However, they came through for us and made reservations with another company. We are set to fly out tomorrow —— a big thanks to Bluegreen and their employees. We are very pleased with our ownership!

Booking was easy. Nice Hotel in Orlando. They were helpful in getting me some tickets to Seaworld. I was worried about presentation but turned out to be short and interesting. Got my gift as promised. Will be returning soon.

I’ve been a Bluegreen owner for the last 3 years and had opportunity to go to several resorts and I found that the apartments are very comfortable and my family have been able to use all the benefits and savings, Recently stayed at The Fountains in Orlando. The Experience was great, my kids enjoyed the amazing facilities and we enjoyed the space and privacy at the 2 bedrooms villa, We highly recommend the BLUEGREEN VACATIONS. I read some negatives reviews from owners or people that attended the presentation, we felt the same at the beginning but we took the free owners orientation and we learned how to use the flexible program they offer.

The sales team at the Fountains in Orlando were great. Pablo and the team made the experience enjoyable and exciting. Going into the day we were unsure of how Bluegreen vacations worked, but after the presentation and preview we were very familiar with how it worked. We purchased a nice vacation package and look forward to using it for years to come. Thank you!

It was amazing. We had so much fun. Room was nice and clear! Everyone was kind. We didn’t buy and they still treated us so well. We will buy another mini trip from the Bass pro in Charlotte. Don’t believe everything bad about timeshare!

Bluegreen is horrible! We were lured into a sales meeting disguised as an opportunity to learn about timeshare ownership. The result? An ill-advised decision to purchase the smallest package available, based on promises that turned out to be nothing but lies! We were assured our timeshare would appreciate in value and generate rental income to offset maintenance fees. This was a blatant and despicable lie. How are they allowed to do this to people? A Bluegreen membership is just an endless cycle of grueling sales meetings, smoke and mirrors and false promises. When we tried to make things work out and ask for help, we were duped into buying more and yet things only got worse!
Good luck actually booking a vacation. It’s impossible, this whole thing is useless. The so-called "owner update meetings" were another cruel joke. Disguised as informative sessions, they were elaborate ruses to sell more points. They always say their meetings are brief, but they turn out to be hours long and you end up ripped off at the end. Let's not forget Bluegreen's sordid history of deceptive practices and legal troubles. Their sales tactics have landed them in court, a testament to their moral bankruptcy. Even their loan officers failed to disclose vital information, further exposing their deceit! I refuse to continue to keep getting taken advantage of! I want my money back and for the timeshare to go in the garbage! If anyone considering Bluegreen Vacations to run in the opposite direction. Spare yourself the shattered dreams, wasted time, and financial burdens. Bluegreen is a scam!

Bluegreen has lied and deceived us into signing contracts with them, by using such deceptive sales tactics to get us to say ‘yes’. The worst of the lies, they said we could have access to Disney Resorts, Cruises, and Theme Parks. After about 5 hours we caved in. We were so mentally, physically, and emotionally exhausted. Once we said yes though, we thought it’d be another couple of hours to complete the Contract paperwork, well, this was the quickest part of the day.
However, we find it shady and scarce because our contract is 133-pages long, and took MAYBE 1 hour to complete, 60-minutes at most to go through and sign 133 pages. They took advantage of us being exhausted beyond all belief and NEVER told us of our right to cancel, or even how long we had. Turns out, we only had 10 days to cancel the contract and they buried it in the 133 pages! That would have been great information if were given to us before the 10 days expired. They intentionally pick and choose what to tell you.

We have been Bluegreen Timeshare Vacation Owners since 2010. We made reservations in May and they call A WEEK before we are expected to arrive in September and say “sorry” no availability. This after we have purchased our no-refund airline tickets. So beware!!! They expect owners to be timely with reservation cancellations or they put on a fee but nothing the other way around. Notified us only A WEEK before! Beware!!!!! Not a responsible company!!!

Our encounter with Bluegreen was deeply disappointing. The initial promise of a relaxing vacation was overshadowed by a marathon sales pitch that disregarded our concerns. The recommended hotel upgrade, costing an extra $700, turned out to be a letdown with stained furniture and water pressure issues. The presentation we endured for over five hours felt robotic, with relentless upselling despite our expressed financial limitations and hotel dissatisfaction. We reluctantly accepted an offer, expecting a $14,500 cost over a decade. Naturally, the sales staff neglected to mention that the cost would be over $29,000 after interest was calculated.
Signing the contract was rushed and unclear, leading to confusion about cancellation terms. Promised discounts were absent, and our preferred accommodations were denied, despite availability elsewhere. Trying to use our points proved impossible, forcing us to pay out of pocket, and maintenance fees ballooned unreasonably within a year. The unauthorized credit card charges for Travelers Plus and the insistence on auto-renewal or fees demonstrate a disregard for customer preferences. Overall, this company's practices have left us feeling deceived, manipulated, and undervalued.

My parents gifted me this timeshare since they no longer use since majority of the locations being over East side. I don’t know why I agreed to it! They hike the “maintenance fees and yearly fees” every year! They also never have rooms available. They give all the big nice rooms you see to Expedia and places like that. Good luck getting a beachfront. They say only owners, that is a lie. They have lied multiple times! They also try to get you to sit thru a meeting every time you visit even when are an owner. We have tried to start checking in super late so they don’t harass us every time. They will bug you the whole entire vacation with phone calls to your room! There is always construction! They say you can use a “day pass” NEVER LET YOU!
I will 100 perfect tell you, they make everything sound way better I promise you! DO NOT DO IT. Even if it is handed to you. We have been members for 30 years since my parents have since passed to me and it’s only gotten way worse! All they care about is money. They also change what they tell you and then will say “Do you have that in writing from us” per a bluegreen employee.
