We were swindled out of $15,000 when buying a Time Share from a Jolla in 2013, but only realized it when we returned the next year (flew in from Wisconsin). After getting 2 of the 3 weeks we needed, and repeatedly getting no response when asking for the 3rd week, we were encouraged to come over and talk as the...

Room was clean, restaurant unavailable most of the time due to sales presentations and booked parties and weddings in the evening. They begged to buy back our original contract that allowed us a six month stay and no maintenance. They offered us #160000.00 to let them buy it back. To receive this sale we had to buy into the new...

Once you buy into this resort you will find it almost impossible to get a week. I have had difficulty getting more than a week in the past 7 years. They are still selling weeks and they have not finished the rooms in the tower which only has 5 floors. All kinds of services are promised but you will not...

The premises are OK (even though parts are actually falling apart like the "wet bar" that is inactive and full of unidentifiable rusting equipment). There is no restaurant that deserve that name. What is supposed to be the restaurant is used for their predatory sales "presentations". Parts of the hotel are still unfinished. And then there are the "vultures" i.e....

There was no one there, peak season. Empty pool. Empty beach. We just visited for a time share presentation, did not stay there but the place gave us the creeps. Dusty Dirt road into the resort. Be very wary of the claims made by sales people.

Stay away from this resort!! They are predators, pressuring people to buy their timeshare, utilizing a marketing company (Platinum Marketing of America) that doesn't exist except through some nebulous email setup! We got taken for $25,000.00 with nothing to show for the timeshare and services they promised! This is the former La Jolla Residences property and they did the same...

I can't believe anyone has actually stayed here! We were invited on a timeshare presentation for $250 per family with the promise the kids could swim while we attended the presentation. Right away our presenter asked if we would sell them our current timeshare without even showing us their program. Our kids were able to swim in their non-heated pool...

Be careful, don't waste your time on a time share tour here. They don't pay. First thing they did was sit us down at breakfast and ask if we were going to buy. Umm you haven't even showed us the property yet. Keep in mind that we are a family in our early 30's who makes well into six figures...

Punta Pacifico is little far from the city and other resorts but if you want traquillity, it's the right place. The staff is super friendly and helpful. There is only one restaurant on the premises and you have to take a taxi to town if you want something else. You can also buy your own food and cook. The pool...
