Peppertree Ocean Club was founded in 1987 in North Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. The company operates a hotel and timeshare directly on the beach.
The company is best known for its timeshares, but does rent out rooms as well. The Better Business Bureau currently lists the company as a C+ rating, but Yelp has ratings of 3 to 3.5 out of 5 stars. Most rooms are suites with an indoor Jacuzzi and small balcony. Peppertree Ocean Club is owned by Festiva Development Group.
In December of 2015, the parent company, Festiva Development Group, announced a $3 million settlement with the attorney general’s office after a class action lawsuit was filed on behalf of timeshare owners who claimed that the company misrepresented the costs and benefits of owning the timeshare and experienced high pressure sales tactics.
