RESERVATIONS POLICY

GUARANTEE POLICY:

Full deposit due 7 days prior to arrival. If you cancel after 4pm inside of 7 days prior to arrival the full deposit will be forfeited. For stays during holidays and special events a full deposit is due 30 days prior to arrival. If you cancel after 4pm 30 days prior to arrival the full deposit will be forfeited.

CANCELLATION POLICY:

Seven (7) days by 4pm prior to date of arrival on applicable reservations. 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 polices as you proceed further into the booking process.

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%, Occupancy Tax 6% and $35 nightly resort fee plus tax will apply to each reservation.

CREDIT AND DEBIT CARD POLICY

The credit or debit card used for booking must be the same card presented for payment along with a valid photo ID upon check-in. In addition to the deposit(s) taken prior to arrival, a pre-authorization amount will be placed on your card at check-in. This is a temporary hold of a specific amount – it is not a charge to your account, but it can create a hold on those funds or against credit availability. We also may charge your card for any damages to the room or premises you or your guests cause. Once your actual incurred charges are posted at check-out, based on your bank, credit card company, or institution’s policy, it can take anywhere from 24 hours to 30 days for the original pre-authorization amount to be removed. It is your responsibility to be aware of how your bank, credit card company, or institution handles all of your transactions, including pre-authorizations. The hotel will not be responsible for any delay in releasing funds, or returning availability or any fees or charges by your bank, credit card company, or institution as a result of your use of a credit or debit card. We are unable to remove pre-authorizations directly through our hotel. We do not accept any third-party billing. This policy applies for all reservations.

DOG POLICY:

Opal Sands Resort welcomes well-mannered dogs 30 lbs. or less. Guests bringing dogs must have them leashed at all times when outside of the room and will be charged a non-refundable fee of $100 per night, per dog; maximum of two dogs per room. Room type and location restrictions may apply, including our pool, restaurants, and beach per city ordinance. Guests will be responsible for any property damage inadvertently caused by their dogs. Housekeeping service during your stay should be arranged either when you and your dog are not in the room, or if you are, the dog must be leashed or crated.

Certified service dogs that provide assistance to individuals with disabilities are welcome at the hotel and are not subject to the policies and restrictions described above.
