I purchased a package through BookVIP and it ended up being an absolute nightmare. By the end of night 2 I decided I would rather go home than stay another night at the supposed 5 Star Resort they promised me.

This was no 5 Star Resort, I was stuck in *** with no way out. I called Bookvip at the end of night 2 and left 2 messages at 2 different numbers. I emailed every Bookvip contact that I had, I posted on their Facebook page, and I sent them a Facebook messenger message begging for help. I did not get any responses on night 2.

I repeated the entire process the next morning, on the 3rd day of my "vacation." I finally received a response via FB messenger. Then an agent called. I explained my horror and told the agent I was already packed to leave the resort, that I would rather go home than stay there another day. I asked for them to help me, relocate me, refund me, anything.

They did not. I asked them to pay for my taxi ride back to the airport, and they declined, stating that wasn't in my package. I asked when I could expect to have this resolved and they said MONDAY! It was Friday morning at about 8 am and I was begging for help.

They DID NOT help me. They also did not call me Monday to resolve these issues. It is Thursday and Bookvip clearly isn't concerned with my wellbeing as I have yet to hear from them. No concern whether I made it out of the hotel, whether I made it to the airport, or whether I ever got out of there at all.

I have reported them to the BBB for the lost money, since I checked out 4 days early, and since this trip was the worst trip of my entire life. DO NOT USE BOOKVIP!!

We saved a lot of money and you can too

Everything was great, the people were so nice. I can’t say enough good things about the Westgate property we stayed at. We saved money on the room, food and show tickets. You can too. Just book through Bookvip.com.

Terrible

Dear Holly,

We appreciate the opportunity to address your concerns.

Unfortunately, you did not meet the resorts requirements for the promotional rate however, we immediately processed a full refund when we discovered that you would not be able to continue with your visit to the resort.

You can save up to save up to 83% of the retail rate on the promotional packages because the resorts are subsidizing the cost of the vacation in exchange for meeting the eligibility requirements and attending the resort preview.

It is the participating resort provider who sets forth the eligibility requirements - not BookVIP.

BookVIP is a booking company and it is our job to ensure that guests are qualified for the limited number of promotional packages being offered by the resort providers. The eligibility requirements for each promotional package can be viewed on BookVIP’s website at the bottom of each resort offering page by clicking on the Terms and Conditions.

The reason we have over 3.6 Million Facebook Likes, more customer video reviews, and have sent over 100,000 people on vacation this year alone, is because we are the worldwide leader in promotional packages - that's our specialty. If you meet the resort's requirements and agree to attend the resort preview, you will receive the promotional rate.

I bought the New Orleans package. I didn't know my dates so I chose book later this came as a five payment option .

By the time I called to book they had already processed three payments. They informed me I was not eligible because I was not married. I was highly offended I am a widow and I earn $150,000 a year I am more than qualified to purchase anything they would offer.

I also have not received a refund. I would definitely not recommend them to anyone

Order processing issue

This company sold my daughter a trip to Bali. They had her date if birth, and were aware she is 18. After booking the trip (including the airfare), they called to tell her she

is ineligible because she is under 21. They refuse to do anything about the $$$ she is out for the tickets.

They have no native English speakers available.

See you in court.

Rip-off: bait and switch

Dear Marvin,

Thank you for your feedback.

Rest assured, BookVIP does not participate in “bait-and-switch” tactics. Above all else, providing excellent customer service is our main goal.

Since this is a discounted promotion, we cannot use the real name of the hotel. When you booked your dates, you were provided with the real name of the resort, which is located in San Jose Los Cabos.

Although you were provided with an option to upgrade to an All-Inclusive resort in Cabo San Lucas, you decided to keep the reservation you originally booked, which is confirmed.

Thank you for choosing BookVIP.

Enjoy your vacation!

Let the company propose a solution

Paid for a resort ressrot named Cabo Palace Beach Resort with location listed in Cabo San Lucas. Then VIP Booking phone rep did a bait and switch on me while on the phone to a resort in San Jose Del Cabo.

VIP booking made me sign off over phone and would not let me see resort until after taking my money. VIP never sent link and I found out about the location by calling custoemr service back and asking why the resort name had changed? they were rude and said that was the resort I booked. no refunds.

They refused to refund me and had to call credit card to report scam. VIP Booking is a high pressure scam.

Great, great trip

Bookvip - Great, great trip
We had a beautiful time. Wonderful food and great staff. We saved a ton of money going through Bookvip.com. Great pool, swim up bar. Talking to other people, we saved about $400.00 over them for this all inclusive resort. Thanks, Bookvip for a fabulous vacation.

Adding on later

I spoke to Karl although the sale that I took a vantage of it supposed to be for one day he is agreed to do and giving me his extension number to ensure that I am able to add my extras for the same price as the packages off at four on today which is amazing because everything is for sale I will be writing another review after I leave to make sure that this thing is not to good to be true but it is looking awesome right now

After investing over1900. no services were rendered.

They are not part of BBB. My bank was not able to get my money back.

After several very hostile conversations they refuse to return my money. The prices offered are the same as ones that you can find yourself.
