UVCI – Your Management Company
UVCI is the vacation ownership management group servicing all members of Tafer Hotels & Resorts (and the Villa Group) vacation clubs. These include TAFER Residence Club, Club Caribe (VDP Cancun), Garza Blanca Residence Club, Universal Vacation Club, Villa Preferred Access Club, and UVC Resorts (VDP Islands of Loreto). There are different clubs because as the industry evolved and each property was built, the Developers decided what type of product they wanted to sell, its related benefits, and how it was to be structured. All the Clubs offer a wide variety of Member Services, programs, and benefits.
Led by a small but effective team (plus the onsite Club staff,) UVCI is an umbrella that oversees all Club and member-related functions. Although UVCI is often called the “Club” (singular), at any given point it can be referencing just one of the Clubs, or all of them. In brief, UVCI represents all members’ interests at all the resorts in Mexico, and on behalf of the Club members, it works with offsite and onsite teams to make sure that your membership experience is as extraordinary as possible, regardless of the breathtaking destination you visit – Puerto Vallarta, Riviera Nayarit, Cabo San Lucas, Islands of Loreto, and Cancun.
UVCI handles member communication and marketing, and plans and hosts the Annual Member Meetings. We are editors and contributors to your Club Newsletters, social media posts, email promotions, and membership brochures. and work with the hosting team to manage your member information website at https://www.taferresidenceclub.com/.
· UVCI’s manages all meetings of the Board of Directors, Member Advisory Committees, and the Developers’ Managing Entities, oversees elections and Club governance, works with the attorneys and Developer Representatives on all Governing Documents, and develops and follows up on timelines and action plans for executive/operational action items on a global level.
· UVCI oversees the Vegas call center and all the services it performs; including reservations processes, and billing functions (maintenance fees and loans). UVCI serves as liaison between ResortCom and the hotel teams to make sure the ResortCom team has the information and resources needed to assist all members properly and efficiently.
· UVCI provides onsite property management oversight. At any given time, each Hotel is occupied by a combination of Club Members as well as hotel guests. Therefore, UVCI works in tandem with the Hotel management teams to make sure that maintenance fees paid by members and sent to the Hotels for property management are being used in the best interests of the members. UVCI works directly with the Hotel Operations teams on quality control for all areas of the Hotel including check-in, inventory (rooms) management, activities programs, Food & Beverage, Elite Program administration, quality surveys, and many other programs, services, and operations.
· Other important functions – UVCI provide administrative guidance and support to Eagle’s Wings Foundation, the Developer’s sister charitable foundation that collects donations and provides grants to local charities near the resorts. UVCI also works with all third-party companies like graphic designers, accounting and auditing firms, insurance companies, and others.
In a nutshell, UVCI is the glue of your membership experience —connecting all operations together so that you can fully enjoy your vacations with us.
UVCI shares a small portion of the ResortCom offices in Las Vegas UVCI, and is often confused with ResortCom; but they are two separate entities. Although UVCI works closely with members to handle many of their needs, day to day it is not the UVCI staff who answer the phones for reservations or member services; these functions are handled by our servicer, ResortCom.
Members can stay updated with the Club through social media platforms such as Facebook , Pinterest, and Instagram. The social media accounts provide members with a platform to share their travel experiences, engage with each other, and provide feedback.
