CARLSBAD: Grand Pacific Resorts has been in the news for a couple of positive reasons lately.
Reason #1: The company took home two industry awards, Best Marketing Professional and Best Team, from Perspective Magazine’s annual awards at the GNEX Conference in February. Lisa Wanzenried, Vice President of Marketing Communications, was honored as the Best Individual Marketing Professional. In addition, the company was also honored with the award of Best Team which went to Grand Pacific Vacation Services, a newly formed department that combines the servicing of all timeshare owner programs including Grand Pacific Resorts nightly rental brand ResorTime, and internal exchange program, Grand Pacific Exchange.
Reason #2: The Alii Kai Resort and the Hanalei Bay Resort, both of which are managed by Grand Pacific Resorts, have been awarded the prestigious RCI Gold Crown Resort designation by exchange company RCI, and they’re darned proud of it! Both resorts are located in Princeville, Kauai, HI. It’s very nice, it’s paradise… 😉
So KUDOS two times to Grand Pacific Resorts. Good job!
The news out of Nevada City isn’t as uplifting. A lawsuit was filed in Nevada County Superior Court on March 6, 2015 by Terry S. and Mary Crane
, aged 83 and 77 respectively, Diamond Resorts International
citing an allegation that Diamond committed fraud against them.
The complaint says the Cranes were solicited via telephone to attend a timeshare presentation at a DRI resort in Arizona, and once they got to the resort they claim they were subjected to a high-pressure sales presentation where, according to an article in CourthouseNews.com, they ultimately ended up more than $50,000 in debt to DRI entities.
The Cranes are asking for a cancellation of the contract, restitution and treble damages for elder abuse, unfair business practices and fraud.
Besides DRI, the defendants in this lawsuit include ILX Acquisitions, Diamond Resorts U.S. Collection LLC, and Diamond Resorts Financial Services.
