If you are considering buying their timeshare, run the other way. I have been an owner for years. They are pathetic, and incapable of service. I couldn't speak more strongly about not investing your money with them. Resist the urge. You will regret it!!

Do not purchase a timeshare from Worldmark by Wyndham. They are currently worth NOTHING compared to how much they charge these days. I cannot speak for other timeshare companies, but I can speak about my experience with Worldmark. They made false selling points to convince us into purchasing a timeshare that we were told costs around $20,000. (While writing this, I went back to check our contract to see the amount, and it is actually over $31,000, which was never disclosed.) This presentation took 4.5 hours and when it came time to sign the contract…5 MINUTES! We were happy at the time to get out of there, but that was our undoing because they failed to disclose the maintenance fees. They also told us we could earn money by renting out our timeshare in the years we couldn’t travel and that this was a wise investment.
There wasn't any mention of "buyers remorse" cancellation period. When we finally reviewed our paperwork when we got home (because you don't want to look at documents while you're on vacation), we had already passed the date. There are very few resorts in Canada so if you're Canadian, it will cost you a fortune to get to a resort. You'll be too stressed out about the money you spent to enjoy yourself. We couldn’t be more unhappy with this purchase.

How is this even legal? They lie and omit key information. I sure hope people don’t actually fall for their scam. Do your research before you sign anything. I can’t recommend them at all as it’s a total scam. Run your numbers and it will cost you double anywhere else.

Recently I received paperwork in the mail, I had my granddaughter read it for me and explain to me what it was because I seen it said "Justice Court". After she read it, she told me that it was basically saying that I am being sued for a credit card by this company. A credit card that I never used might I add. The first one they sent me I lost it and I told them about it when they asked me about it. So they decided to send another one. But I still never used it. There was no need for me to use it. So here I am now being sued for something I never used.

WorldMark you should be ashamed. WorldMark invited us into a timeshare presentation as we were staying as a guest of a family member. There were a number of lies and misdirections from the beginning. They try and sweet talk you at every turn. As a 'gift' for attending the meeting they said we could have a 7 day cruise out of our port of choice for FREE! Wow, that's amazing right? I wish. The next morning we went to sign paperwork and noticed that you are required to pay $150 in taxes and the only ports available are out of Florida, hardly a deal when it costs $700 to fly from the West Coast. NEXT. On multiple occasions we told the sales team we weren't interested, perhaps we could have been more deliberate in our direction, regardless. We set our timer for 90min and I messed up when we didn't walk out after that time, but here is where they messed up big time and lost any remaining respect.
B) They made inappropriate comments in regards to our marital status, which is irrelevant.
C) Tried to make me feel bad for not investing into this ** to create memories for my partner.
D) the sales lead taunted essentially for not having left already after I'd said no 15x.
And you know what? When he said, "you should regret not doing this for her'. I snapped. I said, "** this, let's go." And they didn't like my 'cussing'. As we go to walk towards the elevator, he rushed ahead and physically places himself between me and my partner. I tell the sales rep we are leaving and he tries to stop me. He becomes so irate that he threatens to say he will leave a note on my family member's account. What a terrifying company. Holy smokes.

If you are thinking about purchasing WorldMark by Wyndham- DON'T DO IT! Their sales teams lie and promise benefits that don't even exist. You can rescind your contract but it takes months of constant calling to get things straightened out. You share your experience with their management team and nothing gets corrected or addressed. Before it became WorldMark by Wyndham it was a great company. If you really want to own WorldMark credits buy on the secondary market - you will save a ton of money and the only difference is you can't use the credits to book Wyndham properties (no big loss) or use them for purchasing cruises or other travel that you can find cheaper anyway.

I have been an owner since 2002 and bought through Trend West. I didn't purchase it for an "investment". I purchased it for VACATIONS. When I first bought in I absolutely LOVED IT! Best INVESTMENT ever, because my investment is in my family & traveling and making memories NOT making money with this one. I have seen a lot of changes in the past 20 plus years, & I will admit not all great ones for us as owners. The first few years were great. With Bonus time, Fax time, Monday madness and Inventory Specials, I never had an issue getting in. Because we were owners we could do what we want with the properties. It semi backfired...Like everything people catch on and unfortunately "MEGA" owners bought in. They booked the units and rented them out on VRBO, etc. (which they still do), which made it harder to get in.
For whatever reason they invited WYNDHAM to manage us. That is when the changes happened and as owners we felt like they were in it for money (which they probably are). The good news is...The points you purchase NEVER change. The points used to book resorts NEVER change so you can always go the places you originally loved. What has changed are the Maintenance fees. They started out about 5 cents per point so 20,000 points used to cost about $1000 per year. 20 years later they are a little over 9 cents per point for over $1800.00 per year. Maintenance fees cover our property taxes, insurance, all the staff at each resort, landscape maintenance, new furniture & updated appliances, repairs & Updates for the units. Costs do go up, so I have accepted that.
BTW I have 20,000 points which gives me a 1 bedroom luxury unit for 2 weeks pretty much anywhere, EVERY year! I normally use 10000 for Hawaii and 10000 for Mexico. Great resorts for basically $900.00 per week! It's still a better deal than a hotel. Yes, being a long time owner means changes and I am not happy with a lot of the changes, but I am still a happy owner. I still enjoy the perks of the specials.
What I would say to owners that can't get in the units is you have to PLAN your vacations in advance. If you wait until the last minute, yes, the units are booked. We have a 13 month window. I have NEVER had an issue getting my vacations booked. I might not always get the last minute stuff but I am flexible, get on the waitlist & usually get in. You have to learn the "tricks" and it can be a great thing.

If you are thinking about WorldMark- DON'T DO IT! This is one of the biggest scams. They lied and didn't give me everything they promised. I couldn't just have someone help me with their system-they made me sign up for one of their sales pitches in order to get someone to help me. Worldmark is sold out 90% of the time. You must pay for RCI-which I was not told when I purchased. Between the monthly fees -I could have have an amazing vacation without Worldmark. You can find rooms cheaper without having Worldmark. They will continue to harass you about sales-always trying to get you to upgrade the top level where they really suck you dry. They call nonstop about owner weekends. Why on earth would you want to use your points for one of their owner weekends? Plus those weekends include---you guessed it. A SALES PITCH. If you think car sales people are sneaky-you have not yet dealt with Worldmark.

This presentation is a scam and they take your information and sign you up for a credit card. They never indicated why they need your information other than to see what you’re eligible for. Do not go.

They will mislead and outright lie to get you to their presentations. The salesmen are VERY good so BEWARE! You can get better deals, better proximity, availability and often even nicer places on vrbo etc DO NOT BUY THIS!!! They will tell you you can sell it back if you dont like it but thats NOT true! You should get a lawyer to help you read your contract before buying if you really think you want to- but they won’t even let you do that because they say you have to buy that day or the price goes up.
