Our priority has always been to ensure the safety and well-being of our customers and employees. For this reason and given the recommendations of the relevant authorities, Villa Favorita will remain closed until the next JULY 15, 2020 .
The current situation requires an additional effort of transparency and closeness with all those who have placed their trust in us. Therefore, with the aim of maintaining our commitment and your peace of mind, we want to share with you some of the measures we have adopted to manage those reservations that have been affected by the current situation:
Reservations made through direct channels
Email, phone or web
Regardless of the rate or the chosen cancellation policy, you are offered two options:
- Keep the deposit of your reservation until June 30, 2021. That is, you can modify the date of your stay at no cost.
- Receive a full refund of your reservation.
* Note: these two options can only be applied to those reservations that have an entry date during the period in which the hotel remains closed.
You can request any of the two options by sending an email to email@example.com and we will assist you as soon as possible.
Reservations made through travel agencies or online platforms
If you have a reservation for our Hotel made through an intermediary, we feel obliged to refer you to the channel in which you have made your reservation. However, please feel free to contact us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to change the dates of your stay or learn about the benefits of booking through our direct channels.
NEW RESERVATIONS: FLEXIBILITY AND SECURITY
Taking into account the current situation, we have modified our cancellation policy for FLEXIBLE rates so that you can book with ease and without compromises:
- All reservations made before June 30, 2020 will have free cancellation up to 24 hours before, regardless of the date of stay chosen.
- For reservations made after June 30, 2020, the reservation terms and conditions accepted by the client when making the reservation will apply.
