The following information will help you find out about all aspects of your booking with Resort Sales & Management. Should you require any further information regarding any of the matters below, or other queries you may have about your holiday, please do not hesitate to contact us.
All our properties are privately owned and the style and standard of each property will reflect the preference of the individual owner. We endeavour to give an accurate description of each property and the facilities available, together with interior and exterior photographs. Please note that in some properties it is not always possible for the furnishings within the lounge/dining area or exterior/pool area to accommodate all occupants at any one time, due to space or design restrictions. The facilities in each property are in line with Spanish norms and whilst we take every care to achieve the highest standards of safety, the regulations may not be the same as the UK.
Pre-arrival cleaning, water, and electricity consumption are included within the property's rental price. Unfortunately our resorts can suffer from water or electricity shortages and supplies can be cut off without notice for varying periods of time. In addition, you may find that the electricity may trip if too many appliances are used at the same time. We ask for your patience and co-operation in such instances. As you will appreciate these situations are out of our control. Please contact the Resort Sales & Management office if you experience any interruption of utility services. For more details on cleaning services during your stay, please see Maid Service and Cleaning.
When accommodation is equipped with air conditioning, this will be detailed in the property description by listing the rooms in which the facility is available. Fireplaces located within a property are for decorative purposes only and are not to be used.
Arrival and departure times
Your accommodation will ready for you to occupy from 16:00 onwards. To make sure we can prepare the property for the arrival of the next guests you must vacate the property no later than 10:30 on the day of your departure.
Assistance in resort
Should you require assistance in any way please contact Resort Sales and Management. You must report any problems affecting your holiday to our resort staff, so that we are given the opportunity to take remedial action and help you enjoy the rest of your holiday. If you fail to follow this procedure we will have been deprived of the opportunity to investigate and rectify your complaint whilst you were on resort and this may affect your rights under your contract with your booking agent.
As all our properties are privately owned it is possible that building or refurbishment work may take place near your accommodation at any time during the year. While such work may be undertaken by a third party over whom we have no control, we will endeavour to let you know in advance of any major work taking place and to offer alternative accommodation if available. If we are unable to do so you have the right to cancel your booking without penalty.
Children are naturally curious, probably more so when on holiday where there are lots of new things to be experienced and explored. Please ensure that children are supervised at all times during your holiday. Extra care should be taken with swimming pools, balconies, roads, unfenced areas, etc, as the accommodation may not have the same child precautions as you are accustomed to in your own home. Parents are responsible for the actions of their children at all times.
Community pools at Bellaluz and Los Olivos
The community pool at Bellaluz and the indoor pool at Los Olivos are accessed by swipe card. The relevant card can be obtained from the Resort Management office on payment of a 50€ deposit, refundable on return of the card.
Local fiestas take place throughout the year in and around our resorts. Some shops, supermarkets and other amenities may be closed during this period and there may be additional noise at any time of the day or night.
Heated pools are only available when stated in the relevant accommodation description and will be at an additional cost. Please note that the temperature of the pool cannot be guaranteed even when heated, as this will be weather dependent, particularly during the winter months. If a pool cover is available, it must be used when the pool is not in use, and always used overnight to maintain the pool temperature.
We can provide a cot or a high chair if they are required during your stay. This should be ordered in advance, at the time of booking your accommodation. We supply travel cots, together with a mattress and linen.
Facilities on resort
Every effort is made to ensure the information we provide on resort facilities is correct, however these facilities are supplied by third parties and not by Resort Sales & Management, therefore we cannot take responsibility for its accuracy. Unfortunately, some facilities may not be available at certain times of year, or at times when maintenance work is required or events are being held. In addition, local charges may apply for some of the resort facilities.
Mosquitoes, ants, cockroaches, wasps and other insects are common in warmer climates, and our resorts are no exception. We recommend that food is never left out on surfaces and any crumbs or spills are cleaned immediately. Rubbish should be removed from your property regularly and placed in the nearest bin to your accommodation. Mosquitoes can be kept at bay by a good repellent, which can be purchased before you leave home or at local chemists and supermarkets. Many of our properties are surrounded by gardens and countryside and field mice and other rodents, native reptiles, and spiders are also common. Please do not encourage any stray animals you may encounter by feeding them. These things, together with the possibility of late night noise, are unfortunately unavoidable in the environment in which our properties are situated. We therefore ask for your patience and understanding should they occur. Please note that we are unable to allow pets in any of our rental properties.
Internet access and wifi
Internet access and wifi is available when stated in the relevant accommodation description. A charge may be payable locally. Please note there may be restrictions with the availability and speed of the service transmitted by the local provider and technical issues may cause temporary withdrawal of internet facilities. We are unable to accept responsibility for any down time or consequences of using this service and refund/compensation cannot be offered due to circumstances beyond our control. Please note the speed of internet in this part of the region is not at that which people in the UK can now experience as standard, and when the resort is busy the speed can be affected.
Kitchens include hob, oven, fridge or fridge freezer, basic cooking utensils, iron, ironing board, cutlery and crockery. Some properties have additional facilities. These will be indicated in the property description where available. Please note that cleaning products or materials are not provided and condiments or leftover food supplies from previous guests are always removed for hygiene reasons. Although our properties are checked regularly, crockery, cutlery and other equipment may become damaged through regular use or removed. Please report any damaged or missing items to our resort staff so that we have the opportunity to repair or replace the item. In some instances the sets of crockery, cutlery and glasses may not always match.
All local attractions referred to are independent and provided by third party suppliers and not by Resort Sales & Management. Please ensure your travel insurance covers you for use of any facilities.
Please ensure all personal possessions are packed when leaving your accommodation. Whilst we will endeavour to assist when items are left, unfortunately we are unable to guarantee the return of any items which have been left unattended and will not be liable for any items lost or damaged in transit. Postage, packaging and handling fees will be applied for the return of any lost property.
Maid service & cleaning
Maid service will vary at each individual property and can consist of preparation only with linen and towels on arrival with no further visit, or may include linen changes and cleaning. The time of the visits may vary and the duties of the staff visiting mid stay may only include towels being changed, with no cleaning taking place. Maids are not responsible for laundry or washing up and we ask that you keep the property tidy and leave it as you would expect to find it If your property has a barbecue, please ensure you leave it in a clean condition and ready for the next guests. Please dispose of used charcoal in a rubbish bag when cool, then place it the large dustbins provided on the resort. If pool towels are supplied, these are not included in the linen change. We ask all guests not to use the bath towels supplied at the property for the beach or around the pool.
At times aircraft noise can be experienced, either from commercial aircraft or the local air display team. In addition, noise may be heard from roads, wildlife and other accommodation. This may be more noticeable during peak season due to the increase of flights and tourists. Please contact the Resort Sales & Management office during office hours if you experience disturbance from nearby properties or bar facilities, or you can contact the Resort Security directly out of office hours.
The maximum occupancy for each property is indicated on our web site. Over occupancy is not permitted without prior arrangement and agreement with Resort Sales & Management. Over occupancy without prior agreement will result in additional guests being asked to vacate the property. Please note that each property is equipped for up to, and not more than, the advertised number of maximum occupants only.
Occupying/vacating your property
Check-in time for all our properties is from 16:00 onwards. In order that our properties are adequately prepared for new arrivals, we must ask you to vacate the property by 10:30 on the day of your departure. When making your travel arrangements please take the check-in and check-out times into consideration. We may be able to accommodate left luggage at our office if you have a late flight home or early flight in. Please note that Resort Sales & Management will have no liability for any luggage left at our offices and that items are left at your own risk. We highly recommend that those visitors arriving at night bring a torch. If a transfer has been arranged through us, you will be transferred from the airport to our office to collect your keys and register, then transferred to your accommodation if it is ready. On departure, please dispose of all rubbish, close all the shutters, turn the air conditioning off, and lock the front door, and return the keys to our office. Please note that charges will apply for keys not returned.
Personal health and safety
Please ensure that you have purchased adequate travel insurance for your trip. Though the European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) is valid in Spain and allows you state healthcare at a reduced cost or for free, this should not be considered as an alternative to travel insurance. It is important to have both a EHIC and a valid private travel insurance policy. We take the safety of our guests very seriously, but unfortunately crimes against people and property are a fact of life throughout the world and you have the same responsibility for your personal safety as you do at home. We therefore advise all customers to be vigilant and ensure that great care is taken of your property and personal safety. You should ensure that all the windows, shutters, and doors are locked at night and where available, set the security device. This should also be done when you are away from your property. Adequate travel insurance is essential to cover your personal belongings. There are often limitations placed on money and valuables so please check your policy carefully. In the event of you losing any items of value whilst on holiday through theft or otherwise, you should contact the Resort Sales & Management office who will assist you with making a 'denuncia' with the police, and obtaining a written report for your insurance company. If a report is not obtained it may be difficult for you to pursue any claim through your holiday insurance. Please note that our emergency callout charges will apply if this service is requested out of hours.
Pool, garden and general maintenance
All our properties are maintained by staff who have access to the pool/garden area. Gardens have to be maintained on a regular basis and it is impossible for this to be carried out only on 'change-over' days. Pools are normally checked and cleaned twice a week though this can vary, and this may sometimes be carried out very early in the morning. However, neither pool nor garden personnel have a fixed schedule or fixed hours, so it is not possible for us to advise you of the exact date or time of their visit. We ask for your cooperation when our staff visit, as it is imperative to keep the properties well maintained for our guests’ enjoyment throughout the year.
If a property is described as having a private pool, this means that the pool is for the sole use of the occupants of that property. It is not intended to indicate that the pool is hidden from the sight of others outside the property boundary.
Roof terraces may be gated and access denied to them if they are deemed unsuitable for use. If there is access to the roof terrace at your property, please take care when using it. Children must be supervised at all times and in all areas.
Safety deposit boxes
If your property has a safe it will be included in the property description. If a safe is present it must be used to store your valuables.
Satellite TV/video/DVD/games consoles
All our rental properties include at least one TV with access to a number of English language channels. We cannot guarantee the number or type of channels received and we recommend that you use the same care and supervision with children as you would do at home. If a villa is equipped with a DVD, video or games console, you will need to provide your own DVDs/games.
Smoking by guests is not permitted at any of our rental properties.
Stay safe on holiday
Your safety and well-being are of the utmost importance to us and we take care to ensure your stay at your chosen property is safe and trouble free. However, please be mindful that our accommodation complies with the local standards and regulations of Spain, which might not be the same as in the UK. Please take extra care while you are away and ensure that children are supervised at all times.
Unless otherwise stated telephones are not provided in our properties, therefore we recommend that guests bring a mobile phone in case of an emergency.
We can assist with pre-booking transfers to and from Alicante or Murcia Airports if required.
We make every effort to ensure that the information and photography contained on our website is accurate. However, many individuals are responsible for the provision of your holiday accommodation and resort facilities, and they may alter or temporarily withdraw some of the advertised facilities or services without prior notice to us. Gardens will naturally grow, furnishings may be replaced and décor updated, and it is not always possible to display the most up to date photographs. Any pool measurements we have provided are approximate. Please note that external photos may be taken from, or include, areas of the property not accessible to guests, either on instruction of the owner or on safety grounds. Please check the description thoroughly to ensure that you are aware of the actual rooms and facilities available to you in your chosen property.

General information about our properties:
All Resort Management properties are privately owned and are managed by Resort Management. Descriptions (printed or otherwise) of properties and services are made in good faith and are intended to be as accurate as possible. However, changes may sometimes occur and in the event of any serious discrepancy we will let you know as soon as possible.
While water and electricity supplies are of a standard comparable to those in similar accommodation in this area of Spain, interruptions to the supply do sometimes occur. We cannot accept responsibility for this or for the absence or failure of any other service or facility beyond our control.
If the booked accommodation becomes uninhabitable during your stay due to circumstances beyond our control (e.g. adverse weather conditions, fire, power failure or flooding), we will do our utmost to provide alternative accommodation at no additional charge. In these or other circumstances beyond our control we will not be liable to pay compensation.
The availability of certain facilities and services, either in your accommodation or on resort, (in particular swimming pools, some restaurants, sports & leisure activities etc) is subject to seasonal variations. Such facilities and services may be suspended or closed without prior notice.
As properties are privately owned it is possible that building work may take place near your accommodation at any time during the year. While such work may be undertaken by a third party over whom we have no control, we will endeavour to let you know in advance of any major work taking place and to offer alternative accommodation if available.
