We now accept ACH payments

(posted on 4/13/2021)

VidaOwners.com now accepts ACH bank transfers as a payment method for our rentals. When our Guest receives an invoice from our payment processor Square, they will be directed to a secure web site where they can enter their bank information without our having access to it.

ACH payments are treated the same as Zelle payments as far as any fees or rebates are concerned.

NOTE: Using ACH as your payment method requires that you pay for the entire invoice, including the deposit, all at once. This does not affect any refund you are entitled to in the case of cancellation.

New Room Types Available

(posted on 4/20/2017)

Recently Vidanta opened a few new rooms types. In Nuevo Vallarta there are the Grand Luxxe 1BR Residence Loft and Grand Luxxe 1BR Loft. In Riviera Maya there is the Grand Luxxe 1BR Jungle Suite. The new Nuevo Vallarta rooms are now listed on the Vidanta web site, but the Riviera Maya room is still not listed. However, we have obtained a floor plan of this room and posted it on this site.

In the past the room names have been very confusing and inconsistent, but we've noticed on the Vidanta web site they are attempting to clean some of this up. We have updated the names we use on this site accordingly. Grand Luxxe rooms are now organized into two groups: The Residence at Grand Luxxe is as before with the addition of the new Grand Luxxe 1BR Residence Loft room. The Grand Luxxe group contains all of the Presidential (i.e Punta), Spa, Villas, and Suites (i.e. Condo) rooms as well as the new Grand Luxxe 1BR Loft room. We expect that the Grand Luxxe 1BR Jungle Suite will be part of this group as well.

If you are interested in renting any of the new room types just let us know. Our Members have the ability to internally exchange downwards, meaning they can trade their room for one or more rooms of a lower value.

Grand Luxxe Loft

(posted on 1/30/2017)

With the opening of new Grand Luxxe towers in Nuevo Vallarta and Riviera Maya, Grand Luxxe Spa and Villa owners now have the ability to exchange their units into the new Grand Luxxe 1BR Loft and Loft (studio) units.

We do not have any floor plans or other details right now, but if you would like more information please click below.
