Cold calling & “cold e-mailing” companies. BEWARE!!

Posted in: General- Aug 11, 2014 No Comments

We will never tire of warning members about the potential dangers of dealing with companies that contact you out of the blue – either by phone or by e-mail. It’s as simple as this, if you haven’t contacted the company in question, our advice is to avoid any dealings with companies that operate in this manner.

A new(?) company is apparently doing the rounds, as an owner from The Harbour Club and another from Elite Fuerteventura Club have received e-mails. Neither recall there being any solicited contact of the company in question. Whilst we are only talking of two owners, there could be many more who have been contacted as we imagine a vast majority will (hopefully) ignore the e-mail and do nothing further. However, there could be many who do. We greatly appreciate the diligence of those owners who have let us know, as it allows us to alert you.

Far be it from us to judge this company as perhaps they offer a bona fide service, nevertheless, we do not condone their modus operandi, which seemingly involves scaremongering and cold contacting timeshare owners. E-mails are coming from a general  “@live.co.uk” address, rather than a corporate one.

The company in question is “Holiday Opportunities” and is featured on the TATOC Cold Callers List.

Why do we object to cold calling/contacting and warn members about these companies? It’s simple: the only time that we – like the vast majority of timeshare management and development companies – will pass your details on to a third party is if this is required by law, or to process a membership or reservation. Elite Club Resorts does not sell or otherwise provide your details to third partiesso, how did this company get our member’s details and how did it know they had a timeshare?beware

Charity Night at HC Wine Bar & Terrace raises 2000 euros

Posted in: Tenerife, The Harbour Club News- Aug 08, 2014 No Comments

Charity Night
For the fourth year running The Wine Bar & Terrace held a Charity Gala Night to raise funds for Helping Hands Tenerife – charity set up to help less fortunate children on the island & Live Arico Paws – an animal welfare charity.

Entertainment was provided by The Gillian Banks Theatre School on their charity fund raising tour and the food put on, of course, by The Wine Bar & Terrace. The star prize of a holiday was provided by none other than The Harbour Club. 2000€ was raised to be shared between the two charities. Hats off to all for a great initiative!

ITRA – cold calling?

Posted in: General- Aug 04, 2014 No Comments

alarmOne of our UK members has informed us that they were recently contacted by phone and by e-mail by an organisation known as ITRA – “International Timeshare Refund Action”. According to our member, the first contact was made by ITRA – in other words a cold call – and they were asked if they “still owned a timeshare”.

This should immediately start alarm bells ringing as we have warned on numerous occasions about cold-calling companies. If you are or have been contacted by this company, or indeed any other which cold calls timeshare owners, ask yourself a further question… how did this company get my details and how did it know I had a timeshare? The only time that we will pass your details on to a third party is if this is required by law, or to process a membership or reservation. Elite Club Resorts does not sell or otherwise provide your details to third parties.

We recommend that members apply a simple rule when dealing with timeshare or timeshare related companies. Do not deal with cold callers and do not pay any money up front.

We do not wish to make any judgement on ITRA, but rather believe members should do so, by having a look at the following links:

Don’t miss out! Use your week!

Posted in: Arena Destinations, Elite Fuerteventura Club News, The Harbour Club News- Jul 08, 2014 No Comments


More often than we would like owners miss out on a holiday because they allow their alloted week to pass by without using it or depositing it which after paying your maintenance fees is a great shame. Many think that if the week has passed all is lost… but not with Elite Club Resorts! Unlike other companies which may have no qualms in telling you that you missed your week and there is nothing that canbe done, we believe that if you have paid for it, you should be able to use it! Logical really! And what’s more, we don’t unfairly discriminate owners who have purchased via resales.

Therefore, if your week has passed and you haven’t used it or deposited it… don’t fret! Contact us and we will still let you use it via our internal exchange system, with two years before it will expire (i.e. if the week is from 2014, you have until the end of 2016 to book it).

Alternatively, even though you can’t deposit with other external exchange systems, with our own proprietary system Arena Destinations, where a week is a week (one week = one credit), you can! We will glady credit your Arena exchange account with a credit in lieu of using the week internally, allowing you to travel anywhere in the world and for an exchange fee of just 99€.

Use the contact page to get in touch with us and find out more.

New arrivals at EFC!

Posted in: Elite Fuerteventura Club News- Jul 02, 2014 No Comments

We are pleased to announce some new arrivals at Elite Fuerteventura Club. We have just this week taken delivery of new sunbeds which are now adorning the swimming pool by the Elite Bar, these are the same style as those already gracing the waterfall pool – and incidentally The Harbour Club in Tenerife.

At the same time, in the same delivery, we have received new terrace tables and chairs which are now in virtually all Elite Fuerteventura Club apartments.

Take a look at the photos!
