Additional Notes

Complaint: My husband and I bought a marketing package for a tour to a timeshare at ********. We got placed at a "Hilton sister hotel called Carlsbad Seapointe Resort." It was definitely not a resort nor a villa. The conditions of the room was aweful. There were instances of roach and ants and dead bugs. We did not even receive an apology from anyone in the front desk when we brought the roach and ant problem. The bath towels were dirty and had blad stains on them. We had brought young kids with us and felt that the room was very hazardous to stay at which can cause health problems.

Desired Settlement: I would like full refund of our hotel stay and the hotel needs to get a inspection checked for parasites from the health department. This can cause health problems to consumers.

Business Response:

Dear BBB:

This correspondence is in response to the complaint filed by Ms. **** **** regarding her recent stay at 

Carlsbad Seapointe Resort.  We are very concerned to hear of Ms. ****’s experience and certainly pride 

ourselves in outstanding accommodations and service.  Since learning of Ms. ****’s disappointment 

the management staff of Carlsbad Seapointe Resort has reached out several times to Ms. **** with 

no response.  We called the room while she was still in house, and then a total of five phone calls since 

her departure.  Ms. **** has not responded to any such outreach.  The complaint was then forwarded 

to me and as Director of Owner Services. I called Ms. **** today to respond to her BBB complaint and 

inform her that we will certainly refund her the $275.00 as requested in her BBB complaint.  I did have 

to leave a message for her and am hoping to hear from her soon but will reach out of July 8

not heard back as of then.  The affiliation with the BBB & Hilton Grand Vacation Club is one that we 

honor and we hope that the refund and apologies will satisfy Ms. ****.
