All apartments and villas are equipped with bed linen, towels and kitchen/dining ware, but please bring your own beach towels. All properties have a kettle, toaster, hob, washing machine and a full oven or microwave. Most of our properties offer WIFI and international internet TV channels but some do not due to coverage – please check when booking.
The linen packs contain linen and towels for each person in the property, if you require extra linen or maid service – this can be arranged at an extra charge provided it is arranged with our Housekeeper prior to your arrival.
The descriptions of resorts and accommodation on this website have been carefully compiled and checked by our staff. Regrettably, changes made by owners and/or managers to facilities offered can occur and are beyond our control, so we reserve the right to alter particulars on this site.
Please note that we accept no liability for intermittent failure of public supplies or utilities such as water or electricity over which we have no control, nor of sewage systems, plumbing or mechanical equipment in villas, but shall use our best endeavors to arrange prompt repairs where possible.
Accommodation provided is for the use of the named clients only and may not be added to, sublet or assigned in any way. In the event of bookings for multiple properties it is strictly forbidden to switch equipment of any type between properties.
All self-catering accommodation is in privately owned villas and apartments which are not identical, reflecting the preferences of the different owners.
Please notify us on arrival, of any problems/ issues with the property and/or its equipment. Our properties are regularly inspected however from time to time things can be broken by previous guest that we have not been made aware of. If you find any items not working correctly, please immediately inform the office who will investigate and try to rectify the problem. Although we will make every effort to deal with problems promptly, a reasonable amount of time should be allowed for repairs to be completed by outside contractors. Inevitably, items break or require maintenance, therefore please be aware that you may encounter maintenance staff and gardeners during your stay. This is especially relevant to villas who have weekly gardener maintenance.
On rare occasions it may be unavoidable to change your chosen property because of circumstances beyond our or the owners control; we will endeavor to inform you of this as soon as possible and offer you either alternative accommodation of similar or superior standard. No further claim against the owner or the letting agent for any loss suffered will be considered.
Complaints of whatever nature should be notified to our office immediately in order that we can deal with them promptly and ensure satisfaction.
In any case, the liability of the owners or their representatives is limited to the cost of the accommodation booked.
Our owners require us to hold a damage deposit for each apartment or villa on the following scale:
|Apartments up to two bedrooms||€200|
|Apartments of three bedrooms and over||€300|
|Villas and townhouses||€500|
This deposit should be sent together with the holiday balance when it becomes due.
At the time of booking you will be sent a booking form. Please state on this, the account you would like the deposit returned to. Bank charges are 4.86 € within Europe and 30.36 € outside of Europe – to be covered by the renter.
Providing no damage is caused during the rental period, the deposit will be returned by bank transfer after the end of the holiday. Please allow up to 21 days for receipt.
For discounted rate bookings of four weeks and over, electricity usage is charged on top and will be taken from your damage deposit if not paid before.
Claims against the deposit will only be made in the event of damage caused other than in the course of normal and fair wear and tear, and we urge clients to notify any damage to the Suncoaster offices promptly so that it may be quickly rectified. Damage discovered after the end of the letting period will be notified to the client as soon as possible and will be confirmed in writing by email.
We expect properties to be left in a reasonable condition so that they may be quickly prepared for the next clients. The guest must ensure that the property is returned in a presentable and tidy state including the washing of dishes, cutlery, and kitchen utensils etc.; emptying of the refrigerator, the freezer, and dust bins; cleaning the barbecue; and removing rubbish. This is required even though the guest has paid a final cleaning or such a cleaning is already included in the rent. Suncoaster SL reserves the right to deduct any additional cleaning costs from the security deposit if the guest should not leave the property in the above-mentioned state.
What happens if I cancel?
If you wish to cancel your holiday booking, this must be done in writing by email, from the Party Leader to Suncoaster Holidays. In the event of cancellation the following charges become payable:
|Period before arrival date that letter is received||Cancellation charge as a % of total holiday cost|
|More than 56 days||Deposit only|
|56 – 29 days||50%|
|28 – 14 days||60%|
|0 – 13 days||100%|
Credit Card Payment
Payment by credit card would only be refundable according to the terms of our Cancellation/Refund Policy.
We recommend that you take out comprehensive travel insurance. In the event that you should need to cancel your booking due to unforeseen legitimate reasons, you should be able to reclaim holiday payments already made, directly from the insurance company. We also recommend your travel insurance policy includes medical care and personal possessions cover – high value items may need to be specified with the insurance company and an additional fee may be required for these.
What protection do I have?
