Resort Direct Bookings Terms and Conditions
Introduction and General Provisions
By making a reservation, the first named person on the reservation agrees on behalf of all persons detailed on the reservation that:
- He/she has read these Booking Conditions and has the authority to and does agree to be bound by them;
- He/she is over 18 years of age and where placing an order for services with age restrictions declares that he/she and all members of the party are of the appropriate age to purchase those services; and

If you make your reservation via a travel agent, or other third party, then you have a separate legal relationship with that party and the Resort has no liability for any acts or omissions of such party including their observance of your data protection rights.
Provision of Information
The Website contains information about the villas, facilities and services of the Resort. While the Resort will use all reasonable endeavours to ensure the accuracy of available information, the Resort shall not be liable for any discrepancy, error or omission. The Resort does not make any representation or warranty, express or implied of any kind regarding the information and shall not be liable for any damages that transpire whatsoever.
Booking Process and Policies
1 – Making a Reservation:
To reserve a villa with us, please follow the instructions on the website. You will need to provide credit card details and/or a deposit to secure your reservation.
Please check the details of your reservation are correct before you submit your reservation request. We will not be liable for any delay or non-performance of your reservation if you provide us with incorrect information.
Your reservation is confirmed and a binding contract will come into existence between you and us as soon as we have issued you with a confirmation with a valid confirmation number that will confirm the details of your reservation and will be sent to you. Upon receipt, if you believe that any details on the confirmation are wrong or if you require any changes to be made, you must contact us immediately as it may not be possible to make changes later.
If you do not receive the automatic confirmation message within a few minutes after submitting payment, please check your Junk email folder just in case the confirmation email got delivered there instead of your inbox.
We reserve the right to refuse a reservation and decline to issue a confirmation at our absolute discretion.
2 – Paying for your Reservation:
Payment can be made only by PayPal deposit at the time of reservation at our website. The balance must be paid in cash or by credit card. All reservations require a minimum of 1 night’s accommodation
Payment for any incidental extras (e.g. mini bars, spa treatments etc.) must be made directly to the hotel before you check out.
If any refund is owed, the amount less any applicable fees will be refunded via PayPal within 15 business days. The Resort cannot refund fees charged by your credit or debit card company for transactions.
3 – Prices:
The price of your reservation and the terms upon which payment, changes and cancellations are made will vary according to your villa, booking type and other factors, and you will be notified of these terms at the time of booking. Please note that all rates are subject to availability.
Unless stated otherwise on the website, additional services (half-board, full-board etc.) are not included in the price. Tourist tax, specified on the rates page, must be paid directly to the resort, with the exception of online prepayments where this amount may be included.
Certain promotional offers available online are sold exclusively on the Internet, that is, remotely and in no circumstance at the front desk of the resort.
4 – Accuracy:
We endeavour to ensure that all the information and prices both on our website and marketing material are accurate; however occasionally changes and errors occur and we reserve the right to correct prices and other details in such circumstances. You must check the current price and all other details relating to your chosen reservation before you make your booking.
5 – Arrival and Departure:
The Resort villa is at your disposal from 3:00 pm on the day of arrival. On your departure day the room must be vacated by 12:00 noon. The hotel is entitled to apply exceptions on check-in and check-out times stated above. For safety reasons, only checked-in guests are allowed on private premises and the maximum capacity per room may not be surpassed.
The room will be reserved for you until 4:00 pm on the day of arrival unless no other agreement has been made at the time of reserving or if the confirmed rate or reservation period does not include any other special terms. In case of arrival after 4:00 pm you can guarantee the reservation with a credit card or other method specified. Otherwise the resort can release the reserved room for sale after 4:00 pm.
In case you arrive to the resort according to the arrival time agreed and the room you have reserved is not available, the resort is liable to arrange you an equivalent room without extra charges.
6 – Early Departure
Early departure before the agreed day must be informed to the resort latest by 4:00 pm on the day before.
If your reservation is for several nights the resort is entitled to charge you the full amount for the whole stay. Early departure before the agreed day may also cause changes in the room rate confirmed.
7 – Guest Behaviour
We follow good manners and resort rules at the property. The Resort reserves the right at any time to terminate your stay or that of any member of your party due to misconduct, where justified in their reasonable opinion. In such cases you are still obliged to pay for the accommodation and additional services ordered. You are not eligible to claim a refund for payments already made.
For safety reasons, only checked-in guests are allowed on private resort premises such as resort villas and the maximum capacity per villa may not be surpassed.
7 – Guest Responsibility on Damage
As a guest you are responsible for damage caused on purpose or by accident by you, your guest or your pet in the resort villa or in resort premises. This applies also to the resort furniture and other equipment, other guests in the resort or their property.
The responsibility for caused damage is determined by general principles.
8 – If we Cancel your Reservation
We may cancel your reservation at any time with immediate effect by giving you written notice (including by email) if you fail to make all payments applicable to your reservation in full and on time, or you otherwise breach a material term of these Booking Conditions. This is in addition to any other legal rights and remedies we may have as a result of your breach of contract.
We may in exceptional circumstances be required to cancel your reservation due to ‘Force Majeure’.* If this happens we will notify you as soon as possible and:
- If you have already paid for your reservation, we refund your payment to you; or
- If you have not yet paid for your reservation, you will not be required to do so.
We regret we cannot meet any expenses or losses that you may incur as a result of such change or cancellation.
*For the purposes of this clause, ‘Force Majeure’ means any event which we could not, even with all due care, foresee or avoid as a result of which we cannot provide you with your villa. These events can include, but are not limited to war, threat of war, civil strife terrorist activity and its consequences or the threat of such activity, riot, the act of any government or other national or local authority, industrial dispute, lock closure, natural or nuclear disaster, fire, chemical or biological disaster.
9 – Insurance
You are strongly recommended to take out personal travel insurance for all members of your party. It is your responsibility to ensure that the insurance cover you purchase is adequate for your particular needs. We do not check insurance policies.
This should include full medical cover, including for planned hiking, outdoor and adventure activities. If our guests opt not to purchase such travel insurance the Resort accepts no liability for the following:
- Losses of guests property at our resort (there is a locking safe for valuables in each villa).
- Injury to or illness of guests whilst staying at the Resort.
- Injury to or illness of guests whilst on any tours organised by the Resort.
10 – Children
The Resort is a child-free environment, only children over the age of 18 may be accommodated when sharing a villa with 1 or 2 adults. Portable beds could be used in some villas to accommodate your children which may be chargeable, please check with us during the time of booking.
11 – Special Requests:
If you have any special requests, you must advise us at the time of making your reservation. Although we will endeavour to accommodate reasonable requests, we regret neither we nor the resort can guarantee any request will be met unless we have written to you with specific confirmation that it will. The fact that a special request has been noted on your confirmation or any other documentation is not confirmation that the request will be met. Failure to meet any special request will not be a breach of contract on our part unless the request has been specifically confirmed. We do not accept reservations that are conditional upon any special request being met.
12 – Disabilities and Medical Problems:
If you or any member of your party has any medical problem or disability which may affect your stay, please tell us before you make your reservation so that we can advise as to the suitability of the chosen villa. In any event, you must give full details in writing at the time of making your reservation. If the resort reasonably feels unable to properly accommodate the particular needs of the person concerned, we must reserve the right to decline the reservation or, if full details are not given at the time of booking, neither we nor the resort is obligated to provide any special need of the guest.
13 – Dogs:
Naturally our resort welcomes guide dogs. Many of our guests like to bring their pets to stay with them so we now accept all dogs with a small charge. Whilst we aim to accommodate all pet lovers, sometimes we are unable to accept some animals.
13 – Our Liability:
We will not be responsible or pay you compensation for any injury, illness, death, loss, damage, expense, cost or other claim of any description if it results from:
- the act(s) and/or omission(s) of the person(s) affected;
- the act(s) and/or omission(s) of a third party unconnected with the provision of the accommodation contracted for and which were unforeseeable or unavoidable;
- unusual or unforeseeable circumstances beyond our control, the consequences of which could not have been avoided even if all due care had been exercised; or
- An event which we could not, even with all due care, have foreseen or forestalled.
We will not accept responsibility for services or facilities which do not form part of our contract with you. Excursions or other tours that you may choose to book or pay for whilst you are at the resort are not part of your contracted arrangements with us.
Photographs displayed on the website are not contractual. Although every effort is made to ensure that photographs, graphic images and text used to illustrate resort provide as accurate an impression as possible of the accommodation offered, variations may occur.
14 – Governing Law and Jurisdiction:
