Like a lot of other people I was lured into going to this 90 miniute tour of the resort in order to collect my prize. One of the prizes was a 40.00 gas card (which was a big joke.)The resort is really nice and they should let that speak for itself instead of misleading hard working citizens expecailly when times are really hard to make ends meet.

The staff are all a joke and should be ashamed of themselves. Npne of the prizes that they promised was true even the cruise that was suppose to be a guarantee was fake.It was truly a waste of time.

Had a similar experience except they said I won a trip to Hawaii including airfare. They involved my daughter,13, and got her all excited about the trip and 2 different people told her and myself the airfare was includes.

When u go to register for the trip you "won" the airfare is not included. Bait and switch. I could go on and on about all the lies, including my $50 Saltgrass Steakhouse gift card I was promised was only $25. When u call customer service to correct what you think must be a misunderstanding, you are directed to their "legal dept." and treated like a piece of ***.

Stay away, stay away, stay away.

Don't mess with Texas and definitely don't mess with my daughter. One thing to lie to an adult but when you involve my daughter, lie to her face over and over and use her to try to sell me a timeshare and then to add insult to injury the trip you promise her I won you take away, you are not to be trusted.

Timeshare Advocacy International is the leader in timeshare contract resolutions!

If you have been a victim of deceptive sales practices during your purchase or upgrade of your timeshare we have the solution. We are the only advocacy group in the U.S. that focuses on deceptive sales practices within the timeshare industry that is accredited with the BBB .

Additionally, we are the only company to win in court against the biggest timeshare company in the U.S.

Timeshare Advocacy International Wins Lawsuit against World’s Largest Resort.

In November of 2010 TAI was sued by the largest timeshare developer in the world for assisting timeshare owners out of their contracts with their resort. The charges ranged from violating the Tennessee Uniformed Secrets Act, Tennessee Consumer Rights Act, unauthorized practice of law, intentional interference with business relationships, civil conspiracy, breach of contract, unfair competition, procurement of breach of contract, and unjust enrichment. On July 19, 2012 it took a jury less than 45 minutes to deliberate and return a verdict of “Not Guilty” on all charges.

“We are excited to finally have this decision behind us so we can now focus on one thing, and that is our clients. During the last 2 years they have been trying to do one thing and that is to shut us up and bankrupt us through the court system. We always felt that at the end of the day a jury would see that TAI is in the business to help people. If the timeshare industry would stop lying and sell their product honestly we would be out of business,” said Sean Austin.

“The jury’s verdict represents a victory for free speech and free enterprise, and against corporate bullying,” said Austin’s attorney, Greg Oakley of DHPM PC in a press release.

Timeshare Advocacy International is headquartered in Mount Juliet, TN and currently has a staff of 19 that do nothing but consult, coach, and mentor timeshare owners who have been deceived during their purchase or upgrade of their timeshares. “We specialize in helping timeshare owners not only get out of their timeshare contracts if they were lied to, but we also help them understand what happened and how they were scammed so this hopefully will not happen again!

ok, i have good and bad experiences with them. but i must say i love going.

i went to the time share in atlanta (out side of atlanta) and the one in conroe. just do your home work when dealing with any purchase. Talk them all down until your comfortable or walk away.

if you ar tired of it, put it on cregs list or call a realtor to get rid of it. i really do enjoy the getaways, its just that i am a single parent of three and i really cant afford it.

Like everyone...we attended the 'planned 90 mins'which turned out to be 4 hours.

I feel sad, I wasted my time and my gas attending to lies and deception.

- They pressured us to do the sampler which could be cancelled in 6 days. Once we left; they pulled our credit report and since then have refused to pick up their calls.

Be really careful when dealing with them...that's my advice

Just returned from Silverleaf villages resort at Lake Palistine, 90 minutes was really 3.5 hours. The salesman, the closer, and the corporate guy. It's amazing the more you say NO, the better the deal gets, We were even offered the sampler. We went from a $15000 7 resorts to a 16000 for 16 resorts.... then the price went to $8000.

Think about the numbers. monthly fees are $71.80 a month, or $861.60 a year for one (1) week. For 52 weeks thats $44,803.20 a year, and with about 200 condo's,,,thats ...HOLD ON... $8,960,640.00 a year forever. Plus the average cost of $19,000 for 200 condos for 1 week is $3,800,000..for 52 weeks us $197,600,000.

Thats what everyone together is giving Silverleaf to be treated like ***,. Check the BBB before you deal with them. The free trips are almost worthless once you read all the fine print and exceptions,. Hope the $40 visa card is not fake.

I have a timeshare with Silverleaf and I love using the bonus time they give us. We have gone about 3 times in 6 months to the Conroe Resort and my time share is in Tyler somewhere.

I like the lake, swimming pools, and hot tube at the resort. I enjoy it and enjoy visiting Houston. We go to the Astros game everytime. I bring my mom and other other relatives at time.

I've never tried the free cruise they offer so I don't know much about that but I hope to use the RCI resort soon. I guess I'm lucky cause I can go often. I've meet some people who have timeshares and they don't have bonus time.

We are lucky. That's really the main reason I bought into it.

My parents own a time share through silver leaf and they hate dealing with all the sales people always calling the house. They've owned it for 10 yrs.

I always had fun going when I was younger as did my parents. We've been to the one in Tyler texas, Galvaston, Conroe texas, and San Antonio texas. My fiance and I are soon to take over the timeshare. We plan on doing a lot of traveling with or son.

Matter a fact we will be using the timeshare for our honeymoon in Orlando, FL in March. We are very excited to take our son on his first vacation.

Although it has been awhile since my last stay at a silver leaf resort, I hope it is as nice it was on my last stay. :zzz

I got the shaft as well I did not know that the time share was a morage loan until we got behind and was told that non-payment would lead to a foreclosure on our credit. It has been nothing but deception from the minute we walked thru those doors, I also have a odd year plan so I didn't use it at all last year. We've only been there once in two years.

We bought a timeshare in March, 2011. We were happy with it and i was going to pay the whole amount in cash.

Something told me to wait. We went to the orientation. There we were told what we bought. It was not what Roy told us.

They lied to us from the beginning to the end. Now I want out and the cancellation period expired. My first payment is due in May. I not going to make the payment and if they want to foreclosue on it.

They are not forclosing on my home. My deed is in Branson, Mo.

No offense, what do I want a timeshare in Mo. I hate the cold weather.

We booked a week prior to our stay and were confirmed a few days ago. :?

I went yesterday to the conroe location. I had a great time.

Definitely wasn't there to buy anything, I had already been warned!!! Anyway its a beautiful resort but u gotta be ready for the dirty sales tricks. I was lucky, I had a very sweet sales lady named Megan.

Cute as ***. Between the 40 dollar card and her delightful cleavage I thought it was worth a few hours of my time.
