Cancellation (By us)
We are unable to accept responsibility for any aspect of your holiday arrangements affected by matters over which we have no control e.g. Natural Disasters, threats of war, riots, industrial disputes, civil commotion, terrorist activities, government action, extreme weather or similar events beyond our control, e.g. technical problems with aircraft. Our liability is limited to the availability of the accommodation for the dates booked. In the event of the accommodation not being available (due to fire, floods, etc.) every effort will be made to find a suitable alternative, if this is not possible, then the full amount paid in respect of accommodation will be refunded to you. Please note that your contracts with the airline and car hire firm are outside our control and we cannot be held responsible on their behalf.
Travel Cover Insurance
It is a condition of your booking that you and all other members of your party, including infants and children, are adequately insured. It is essential for everyone (including infants) to take out adequate travel and medical insurance for the duration of their trip. We cannot accept liability for death, personal injury, sickness, accident, loss of luggage, delay or any other misadventure concerned with your holiday.
The accommodation provided is only for the use of the clients listed in correspondence or e-mails – subletting, sharing, adding extra guests etc. is prohibited without the approval of the owners.
To the best of our knowledge the information is up to date and accurate and if any changes are necessary we will do our best to advise you as soon as possible.

Single sex groups or young groups
If the booking consists of a group of single sex and/or young people, we reserve the right to charge a security deposit of £100.00 per person which will be refundable at the end of the holiday, provided the property is left in a satisfactory condition. If the property is damaged in any way, the security deposit will be held until such time as the damage is repaired. We will then refund any balance remaining of the deposit. In the event the security deposit has been insufficient to cover the cost of damage, we reserve the right to invoice you for the additional amount.
If any damage or breakage occurs within the accommodation you are using, it would be helpful if you could make any replacements or repairs before leaving Lanzarote – should this not be possible, it must be reported on your return and you will be charged accordingly.
No children under the age of 12 are permitted in the hot tubs at any time. When using the hot tub, remember there is a certain health risk associated with this facility. Use at your own risk.

DO NOT STAND ON THE HOT TUB COVERS. Hot tub covers are for insulation purposes and are not designed to support a person or persons. They will break and you may be charged for replacement. Remember when not using the hot tub, leave the cover on so hot tub will stay warm.

If it is found that these have been flushed and clog the septic system, you could be charged damages of up to two hundred pounds (€200)

Parental/Guardian supervision is required at all times.
Swimming Pool Safety
- Keep young children under constant supervision
- Follow the pool rules (don’t dive into the shallow end)
- Never enter the water after drinking alcohol
It is mandatory for all babies/toddlers to wear swim nappies when using the pools. In the event of a faecal accident in or around the pool, report it immediately so the appropriate action can be taken.
Keep furniture away from the railings so it can’t be made into an impromptu climbing frame. Never leave children unsupervised. If you’ve got direct access to the swimming pool from your room, doors should be closed and secure. As tempting as it may be to catch a glimpse of the sea or the surrounding views, never lean over, sit or climb on the balcony wall/railings. Never jump into the pool from your balcony – this could result in some serious long term injury.
If applicable….This must be received with the final payment for your holiday.
