Terms & Conditions

Rates are 100% NON-REFUNDABLE within 30 days of date of arrival for direct hotel reservations. Your credit card will be charged 30 days prior to arrival for all room nights of your stay, per our strict cancellation policy.  We urge you to retain travel insurance and cancellation insurance for your protection against unforeseen circumstances that may cause a cancellation. We are very strict with our cancel policy and will always charge, no matter the circumstances. Reservations are non-transferrable to alternate names/guests or dates. Room reservations can only be cancelled by email. We do not refund within the penalty period, under any circumstances.  

Your credit card must be valid for your stay dates. If you do not have a credit card, we require a check/wire transfer deposit equal to three room nights and tax/service at time of booking. 30 days prior to arrival all room nights should be fully paid for.

We highly recommend all guests to protect themselves from losses due to last minute cancellations or no-shows. Because we are a small, independently owned business, and have high demand, we are not flexible when it comes to the NON-REFUNDABLE rates. Any cancellation within 30 days of arrival incur a 100% penalty.  Aruba has no last minute walk-in business that would allow rooms to be resold.  Please read our policy carefully and consider contacting your insurance agent for travel insurance.
