11. CANCELLATIONS BY THE AGENCY – MINIMUM GROUP
In the event that the provision of a booking (accommodation or service) is subject to having a minimum number of participants, and is thus specified, the agency may cancel the booking in the event that this minimum number of participants is not attained, notifying the customer in a minimum term of three (3) days prior to the scheduled date of the outing. Likewise, the agency may also cancel a journey by reason of force majeure, classing as such those abnormal and unforeseeable circumstances beyond the control of the party pleading such a case, the consequences of which were unavoidable, despite having acted with due diligence. In both cases, the consumer shall be entitled to a refund of the amounts paid, except for management costs.
If before running a service the organiser is forced to modify the essential elements of it significantly, it must notify the customer in writing, so the latter may choose between cancelling the booking or agreement and accepting the changes to the booking initially contracted. If prior to commencing the service or during the latter, the travel agency is unable to provide any of the services that comprise the conditions agreed upon, the agency will offer the user a full refund for this service, or its substitution for another of similar characteristics. Any service not provided shall be reimbursed at the end of the booking, upon prior presentation of the corresponding notification issued by the person or entity responsible. No refund whatsoever shall be made for services voluntarily unused by the customer, whatever the reason for non-use may be. On journeys contracted with sailing and/or motor vessels associated to the booking, the captain or skipper responsible reserves the right to vary or alter destinations, routes or stays in port, depending on weather conditions, having previously informed customers, to safeguard the latter’s safety, without the customer being entitled to any claim and/or indemnity whatsoever.

15. INFORMATION ON SPECIAL CONDITIONS CONCERNING COVID-19
Our top priority is the safety and well-being of our guests and staff. Our establishments comply strictly with all the measures decreed by the Government, through the Ministry of Health, and the recommendations of the World Health Organisation for the tourism sector, to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
To this end, we would like to inform you about the special rules of cohabitation and use of the facilities that we have implemented to comply with all safety and hygiene protocols:
We have limited the capacity of our common spaces (restaurant, swimming pool area, bar-cafeteria, lounges, spa, etc.), or even increased the surface area available, to be able to ensure the safety distance between people recommended by the competent authorities.
The use of the lifts is limited to the family unit, unless all users wear a hygienic mask.
Our hammocks will be assigned individually and for a stipulated time (based on availability). You cannot reserve the hammocks with towels or other belongings.
For hygiene reasons, it is compulsory to use the gel dispensers available at the access points to the shared spaces (front desk, restaurants and bars, swimming pools, lifts, spa, etc.).
The buffet restaurant's timetable may be subject to shifts, to comply with the capacity established by the competent bodies, whilst simultaneously providing a far more personalised service.
The use of a hygienic mask will be mandatory in those situations or activities where the minimum safety distance cannot be guaranteed.
Please note that our cleaning and technical services staff will only access rooms when they are unoccupied, except in exceptional cases.
If you have symptoms compatible with COVID-19, you should remain in self-isolation with your co-habitants until you can undergo medical evaluation by informing the competent authorities.
Our facilities have also been adapted in terms of cleaning, hygiene and safety measures to offer you complete confidence and peace of mind.
These measures are subject to possible amendments depending on the recommendations and/or guidelines that may be established by the Government at any time.
