Not resolved

When we purchased this $3,200+ package, (in Feb. 2017) we were guaranteed that our room price would be paid (for the 9 weeks received) and that the all-inclusive fee (in the Hideaway) section would be $89/pp / per day and would never increase.

Fast forward to 2018 and we are paying $205 per person per day. That's a $116/person /day increase. WTF? We were also guaranteed air travel assistance through Travel Smart's travel agents.

NOTHING! I had to book my own flights through FunJet. So, let's see. I paid $3,200+ for nine weeks at your resorts (plus a $295 maintenance fee) and a guaranteed $89/person/day all inclusive fee.

Before joining your vacation club, I had 8 days for 2 people, air and ground transport included, in the Hideaway section at the same resort I booked this year for a total of $4,300. This year, after forking over $3,200+ for your club fee and a maintenance fee of $295, I paid $3,280 for the resort and $798 for airfare (total of $4,078). SO WHERE AM I SAVING???? No one at Travel Smart can explain this to me ...

where have I saved?

If you total the initial cost ($3,200) plus the yearly $295 fee, I'm spending an additional $915/year for what?? This is a RIP OFF!!
