I have been a Silver leaf timeshare owner for 2 years now and have NEVER used my timeshare to go on vacation. I have been on vacation many times, but not through Silver leaf because booking through this timeshare is IMPOSSIBLE.
This is the biggest scam EVER. There is a lot of things they don't tell you when you sign up for the timeshare. They failed to tell us that you had to pay for RCI membership every year. They failed to tell us that vacations had to be booked nearly 1 year in advance, if you can even get anything booked.
It is nearly impossible to even get a reservation with RCI. We were not told that along with our monthly charge there would also be a maintenance fee of like 70$$. When i called and complained about all this to customer service I was told: "You need to understand RCI has to fulfill their customer's requests before Silver leafs". When speaking to customer service about the false information that was used to lure me into this purchase i was also told that many sales people in the company were let go because they were using false information to make a sale as if that was supposed to make it better.
The list goes on and on.
I would not recommend this to anyone. STAY AWAY.
