Guarantee Policy

A deposit of one night’s room rate, resort fee, and applicable taxes will be taken three days prior to arrival (excluding special rates or promotions that require prepayment).

Cancellation Policy

Guests may cancel up to 72 hours prior to arrival to avoid 1 night’s room, tax and resort fee penalty. Advance rate plans are fully prepaid, non-changeable, and non-refundable. Should you cancel an advance rate plan or in the event that you do not arrive on the arrival date, the full amount of the reservation shall be forfeited. Each particular rate plan has clearly defined cancellation policies as you proceed further into the booking process. We reserve the right to cancel or modify reservations where it appears that a customer has engaged in fraudulent or inappropriate activity or under other circumstances where it appears that the rates or details of the reservation contains or resulted from a mistake or error.

At check-in, the front desk will verify your check-out date. Rates quoted are based on check-in date and length of stay. Should you choose to depart early, price is subject to change. A state tax of 7.5%, occupancy tax of 5%, and $40 nightly resort fee plus tax will apply to each reservation.
