Special requests and conditions

If you have any special request, you must advise us at the time of booking. Although we will endeavour to pass any reasonable requests on to the relevant supplier, we regret we cannot guarantee any request will be met. Failure to meet any special request will not be a breach of contract on our part.  Confirmation that a special request has been noted or passed on to the supplier or the inclusion of the special request on your confirmation invoice or any other documentation is not confirmation that the request will be met. Unless and until specifically confirmed, all special requests are subject to availability. For your own protection, you should obtain confirmation in writing that a special request will be complied (where it is possible to give this) where it is important to you.

We regret we cannot accept any conditional bookings, i.e. any booking which is specified to be conditional on the fulfilment of a particular request.  All such bookings will be treated as “standard” bookings subject to the above provisions on special requests.

Changes by you

Should you wish to make any changes to your confirmed holiday, you must notify us in writing as soon as possible.  Whilst we will endeavour to assist, we cannot guarantee we will be able to meet any such requests.  Where we can, change of holiday dates and other substantial changes (particularly where requested 30 days or less before the start of your holiday) will normally be treated as a cancellation of the original booking and rebooking. Changes may result in the recalculation of the holiday price where, for example, the basis on which the price of the original holiday was calculated has changed.

Cancellation by you

Should you need to cancel your part or your entire holiday, once it has been confirmed, the party leader must immediately advise us in writing.  Your notice of cancellation will only be effective when it is received in writing by us at our offices.  As we incur costs from the time we confirm your booking, the following cancellation charges will be payable.  Where the cancellation charge is shown as a percentage, this is calculated on the basis of the total cost.  

Period before the start of your holiday within  which written notification of cancellation is received by us:

  • More than 31 days: 10% cancellation fee will be charged
  • 16 – 30 days: 50% cancellation fee will be charged
  • 0 – 15 days (including after the trip has started): 100% cancellation fee will be charged

Partial cancellation (for shortening your stay)  may result in the recalculation of the cost of the condo rental according the cancellation fee that applies for the shortened period and the time you are letting us know. We could reschedule your vacation dates, and in that case we would only charge 10 percent of the given deposit.

As we receive the amount in Mexican Pesos, in case you need to cancel your reservation, we would take any amount in pesos that had been received, minus the charge depending on the date prior the vacation, and translate to as Many USD at the exchange rate of the date and send the money back, we are not responsible to absorb any cost of devaluation of any of the currencies.

There shall be no refunds of rents because of shortened stays or ruined expectations due to work and family emergencies or other commitments.

Changes and cancellations by us

We always endeavour to avoid changes and cancellations, though we must reserve the right to do so en case of a really need.

If we have to make a significant change or cancel, we will tell you as soon as possible.  If there is time to do so before the start of your holiday, we will offer you the choice of the following options:-

(a) (for significant changes) accepting the changed dates or another condo on the same complex (upon availability)

(b) If the alternative dates are more expensive, we will ask you to pay the difference but if they are less expensive, we will refund the difference or

(c) cancelling or accepting the cancellation in which case you will receive a full and quick refund of all monies you have paid to us or

If we have to make a significant change or cancel we will, where due, pay you appropriate compensation (up to a maximum of 10% of the total cost of the holiday) depending on the circumstances and when the significant change or cancellation is notified to you subject to the following exception. Compensation will not be payable and no liability beyond offering the above mentioned choices can be accepted where we are forced to make a change or cancel as a result of unusual and unforeseeable circumstances beyond our control, the consequences of which we could not have avoided even with all due care.

No compensation will be payable and the above options will not be available if we cancel as a result of your failure to comply with any requirement of the booking conditions entitling us to cancel (such as paying on time).

Very rarely, we may be forced by “force majeure” (see clause 10) to change or terminate your holiday after departure but before the scheduled end of your time away. This is extremely unlikely but if this situation does occur, in this case, we will refund the remaining unused days.

Force Majeure

Except where otherwise expressly stated in these booking conditions, we regret we cannot accept liability or pay any compensation where the condo rental is prevented or affected by or you otherwise suffer any damage, loss or expense of any nature as a result of “force majeure”.  In these booking conditions, “force majeure” means any event which we in question could not, even with all due care, foresee or avoid. Such events may include actual or threatened war, riot, civil strife, terrorist activity, industrial dispute, natural or nuclear disaster, adverse weather conditions, pandemic, fire and all similar events outside our control.

Please note, it is your responsibility to show that reasonable skill and care has not been used if you wish to make a claim against us.  In addition, we will only be responsible for what our employees, agents and suppliers do or do not do if they were at the time acting within the course of their employment (for employees) or carrying out work we had asked them to do (for agents and suppliers). Playa Royale employees are not our employees so we do not take responsibility for ther acting.

(2) We will not be responsible for any injury, illness, death, loss (for example loss of enjoyment), damage, expense, cost or other sum or claim of any description whatsoever which results from any of the following: –

– the act(s) and/or omission(s) of the person(s) affected or any member(s) of their party or

– the act(s) and/or omission(s) of a third party not connected with the provision of your holiday and which were unforeseeable or unavoidable or

– ‘force majeure’ as defined in clause 10 above


(3) Please note, we cannot accept responsibility for any services other than the condo rental.  This includes, for example, any additional services or facilities which Playa Royale complex or any other supplier agrees to provide for you and we have not agreed to arrange them as part of our contract or any restaurant meal or excursion you purchase to any company during your stay.

(4)    The promises we make to you about the services we have agreed to provide or arrange as part of our contract – and the laws and regulations applying in Mexico – will be used as the basis for deciding whether the rental condition in question had been properly provided

(5) As set out in these booking conditions, we limit the maximum amount we may have to pay you for any claims you may make against us to the maximum amount we will have to pay you is equivalent to the booking fee you had paid to us for the reservation
