Terms and Conditions for Accommodations:
As a Pure Paradise Travel client, when confirming a booking in person, on the phone, by email, or via an online ad site, you are agreeing to our:
General Reservation Information Terms and Conditions: Amenities and prices online are kept as current as much as possible, but may not be perfectly accurate. Rates and terms will be guaranteed when the reservation is confirmed or in cases where a rental agreement is required, when it and the payment are received by Pure Paradise Travel
Holds: On most properties, a hold can be requested, and that property will be held for the guest for 24 hours without any cost to the guest.
Payment Information: Payment is required the day of verbal confirmation. A deposit is typically full payment, but for VIPs or other special circumstances, half of the total may be approved as a deposit for most properties and dates, except during any Holidays. The balance is due 60 days prior to the arrival date (some villas require payment in full 90 days before arrival). Reservations made within sixty days (or, ninety days in some cases) of the arrival date must be paid in full. A voucher will be sent upon final payment. This voucher will be required for admittance upon arrival at the property. Some accommodations require signed rental agreements and/or security deposits or a copy of the renter's passport. Rates are firm once the reservation is confirmed and the deposit is received. Guest payments by credit card on our secure payment page will have a small booking fee added (5%), which will be outlined on the invoice or receipt. Chargebacks by a guest under contract financially could be considered a felony. Please contact us for any questions regarding payments. Rental agreements, and security deposits for properties requiring them, must be returned before guests will be sent final documents or allowed to occupy the rental property.
Cancellation Terms (per reservation): A property is considered reserved at the time it is verbally confirmed by the guest.
COVID Cancellations: For any reservation canceling for reasons due to COVID: Travelers who cancel at least 60 days before check-in will get back 100% of the amount paid. If canceling between 31-59 days before check-in, there will be a 50% refund of the total reservation + 50% credit offered. If canceled 30 days or less to arrival, 100% full credit will be offered, with one rebooking/change fee waived.
Cancellations: for any other reason, will be subject to a $100 cancellation fee. Reservations being postponed for any reason other than COVID, will also be subject to a $100 rebooking / change fee. When booked via our site, cancellations for any reason, prior to 60 days of arrival (or 90 days for properties requiring full payment 90 days in advance) will forfeit the deposit amount plus the $100 cancellation fee. Cancellations for any reason, less than 60 days of arrival will forfeit the entire rental amount. Ad site cancellations are stricter, typically no cancellations are allowed. If Pure Paradise Travel has to cancel a reservation a client has confirmed for any reason (construction, ownership change etc.), there will be no cost to the traveler and the agents at Pure Paradise Travel will attempt to find equal or better options to offer to the guests, or offer a full refund.
Changes: There will be a fee (usually $25 - $50USD) charged per change, on all changes made to a reservation after it is confirmed verbally or in writing. The number of occupants in a home is set, and there are some exceptions for extra guests up to a higher number for an additional fee, which the client will be responsible for. Rates can change if the reservation is changed.
Conditions: Pure Paradise Travel has made a good faith effort to visit and accurately describe / photograph the property, but shall not be liable for any inaccuracies in such descriptions, changes in the conditions or amenities of the accommodation, the surrounding properties, construction, the condition thereof, or for any defects or stoppages of electricity, gas, water supply, plumbing, or any other services, for any reason. Weather conditions may make property evacuation necessary, there will be no refunds or credits for time unused due to such. The guests are financially liable for the full rental cost of the property for the full time reserved, whether the clients use it or not. It is wise to purchase travel insurance for these uncontrollable circumstances. The number of occupants in a home is set, and not to be exceeded over the number reserved, or additional fees may be charged by the on-site management (or all guests evicted on the spot depending on the situation).

Damages: The clients agree by confirmation of reservation that any variances to the rules or damages above normal wear and tear, will enable the client's to be financially liable for additional these fair costs and or outlined fines, be in jeopardy of fees and fines, or create a situation of eviction without refund. In most cases, the tenant would be given notice to amend the situation first, or the governing parties (the owner(s), or their directors or agents) will attempt to work out a solution for all involved before taking more drastic measures. Security deposits if collected pre-vacation, will be held in trust by the agent and destroyed once the agent has the assurance that no damage, etc. has been incurred. Security deposits are destroyed approximately 30 days or less after the guests departure from the property if not cashed. Tenant agrees that funds will be used fairly to cover damages if any are incurred. If the security deposit is necessary to be processed, there will be a $50 fee added to the damage amount for administrative costs.
The tenant agrees to use the said property for residential purposes only and agrees to refrain from any use, which may be offensive to the owner(s) or neighbors, or, may be asked to leave the premises with no refund. No pets will be allowed without prior written consent from the owner(s) without incurring a penalty fee. The tenant(s) shall remove no items in the residence including furniture, decorations, household goods, utensils, towels or linens, even temporarily, from the residence. The tenant(s) shall be responsible to the owner(s) for any loss or damage to the property, or contents during the tenant(s) occupancy of the said property.

Caretakers and cleaning staff will be onsite most days working quietly around the guests.
Failure to Pay: Clients are legally bound to pay for services rendered by the terms and conditions of the rental as stated here. In a case of Theft of Services, criminal charges, legal action, collection, and other options necessary will be implemented to secure funds, and all fees for such will be charged to the client in addition to the amount originally due for the agreed-upon reservation through our agency.
Other: A) Each property is limited to the number of persons indicated on the final documents. This limit is enforced and tenants are considered in violation of the rental agreement if the number is exceeded.

There will be no refund or credits for evacuations due to hurricanes, tropical storms, natural disasters, war, strikes, illness, government evacuations or other conditions that are beyond Pure Paradise Travel's control. It is wise to purchase travel insurance to protect travelers for these unlikely events and make sure these items are covered in your policy. It is recommended each guest procure travel insurance for the protection of persons and property, and with respect to personal and financial liability, while traveling to and from, and occupying the accommodation. It is wise to research vehicle coverage before departing, as US insurance does not cover drivers in Mexico.
