The Anna Maria Beach Resort

Terms and Conditions for the Anna Maria Beach Resort

Thank you for booking with Anna Maria Beach Resort (referred to at this point forward as AMBR)! We appreciate and value your business and hope you enjoy your stay on our wonderful island. The aim of AMBR is to provide all of our guests accommodations that are clean, comfortable and aptly equipped, so that you can enjoy your vacation to the fullest. The following are our Terms and Conditions, which are standard details for the vacation rental industry.

Cancellation Policy

A 25% cancellation fee of the total rental rate applies to any reservation that is cancelled prior to 30 days of arrival. Reservations cancelled within 30 days of arrival (including non­arrivals, late arrivals, early departures or alterations) are non­refundable and subject to 100% penalty. It is recommended that guests take out travel insurance to cover the cost of rental expenses in case of a cancellation.

Act of God

Subject to the AMBR Cancellation Policy herein, it is expressly agreed that AMBR will not be held responsible and will not issue a refund for any reservations that are canceled, prevented, restricted or interfered with by circumstances beyond its reasonable control, including without limitation, earthquake, fire, flood, Act of God, hurricane, red tide, storms, wars, civil or military disturbances, environmental hazards, or any other cause whatsoever beyond the reasonable control of AMBR. In the event you attempt to cancel your reservation, arrive late, depart early, or otherwise alter your reservation as a result of any of the foregoing, you will be subject to the AMBR Cancellation Policy as detailed herein. Travel Insurance may be a solution to help mitigate the risk for some of these issues. AMBR recommends you investigate the merits of perhaps purchasing travel insurance to cover the cost of your reservation in case of the foregoing.

Tax Law Changes

In the event of any tax law changes, the guest is responsible to pay the monetary difference that might occur. These changes can affect reservations already paid in full and the guest is responsible to pay the additional governmentally mandated fees, shall this situation occur.

Confirmation of Reservation

If you elect to have Anna Maria Vacations or AMBR make the reservation for you, the system will automatically send you a confirmation email containing a link to these Terms and Conditions and an electronic signature of acceptance is required. Payment of the booking will also be considered acceptance of these Terms and Conditions. The same applies to web site bookings placed individually. We run a live reservation website so your booking is confirmed at the time it is placed online. While very unusual, AMBR reserves the right to cancel any reservation, subject to issuing a full refund. Please note: Your payment will appear on your credit card statement as a payment made to Anna Maria Vacations.

Payments

50% of your total rental amount plus tax is charged to your credit card at time of booking (We accept VISA, MasterCard and Discover). This is a part of the total cost of your reservation. The remaining balance due must be received within 90 days prior to your arrival. If the optional Traveler’s Insurance is purchased, the Travel Insurance premium payment is due at the time of purchase and must be purchased PRIOR to your final payment.

If the reservation is made within the 90 days prior to arrival, the full payment is due and payable immediately by credit card (VISA, MasterCard and Discover).

Please note for non US residents that the accommodation is quoted in US dollars. Any amounts quoted in UK pounds or Euros are for guidance purposes. The US dollar rate prevails. Final calculation of exchange rate will be debited or credited to your credit card during your stay or after your departure.

Occupancy

Maximum occupancy is listed on the reservation description for each property or room. The renter may entertain a maximum of 3 visiting guests per room during the hours of 9:00 a.m. until 10:00 p.m., but they cannot be afforded a parking spot. No visiting guest may sleep overnight in the accommodation and if this occurs a 25% per person surcharge of the total cost of the reservation will be charged. While very unusual, if a situation warrants it AMBR also reserves the right to terminate the rental agreement immediately without refund.

We do not accept reservations from anyone under 25 years of age. We do not allow persons under 25 to occupy an accommodation unless accompanied by someone over 25 years of age.

Noise Ordinance

The Island does have a very strict noise ordinance that goes into effect after 10 p.m. This ordinance pertains to any loud music or loud sounds coming from the accommodation after this hour. If the police or the Management Company is called due to the renters disturbing the peace, we do reserve the right to terminate the rental agreement immediately without refund in certain situations.

The above also applies to AMBR 24/7 –  please be mindful of your fellow hotel guests, not only in your room but also when utilizing all common areas: i.e., horseplay in pool/pool area, loud or offensive music, unacceptable language, etc. A verbal warning will be given, however, if disruptive and/or abusive behavior continues, we do reserve the right to terminate the rental agreement immediately without refund.

Construction

In the event of neighboring construction, AMBR shall not be held responsible to provide any type of advance notification to incoming guests, as we do not receive any type of notification of new or ongoing construction projects (new construction, exterior or interior renovations, pool/landscaping installation, etc). Jobs stop and start continuously on the Island so it beyond our control to forecast/understand these details. Accommodation views are subject to change due to construction that may occur on the island.

Accommodations

In the event of circumstances beyond our control, the AMBR Management reserves the right to substitute the room for an alternate room, if necessary. If this were to happen, i.e. a maintenance issue arises, we will attempt to inform you of any change made to your reservation prior to you arriving for your vacation.
