Reservations and deposit
After making a booking through the form on our website www.villahermosacolina.com, you will receive a confirmation email. Upon booking, a non-refundable deposit of 30% of the total is required (For more information about deposits, please see "Payments" below). Once the deposit is received, Villa Hermosa Colina will issue a final confirmation by email. The party to whom the confirmation is addressed is wholly responsible for the total amount of the reservation and for the compliance of the members of your group with these booking conditions. Reservations from persons under 18 years of age cannot be accepted. Villa Hermosa Colina reserves the right to refuse reservations without explanation. By making the payment, you confirm your consent to these terms and conditions; once confirmation has been issued by Villa Hermosa Colina, the rental contract becomes binding and your agreement with these conditions is confirmed.
In order to guarantee your reservation, Villa Hermosa Colina must receive 30% of the total booking amount as a non-refundable deposit when booking more than 9 weeks (63 days) in advance. The balance of the reservation cost must be received by Villa Hermosa Colina no later than 9 weeks (63 days) prior to arrival. Parties booking less than 9 weeks (63 days) prior to the date of arrival must pay the full booking amount at the time of reservation in order to confirm the booking. Failure to pay the balance (or total amount, as the case may be) on time will constitute cancellation, and you will be subject to cancellation charges. Receipt and banking of any deposit does not constitute acceptance of any booking. A binding contract exists only when Villa Hermosa Colina issues an email of confirmation.
