Resort Fee: In addition to the specified rates above, a nightly resort fee of $39.99, plus tax, will be assessed on the supplier rooms. The Resort Fee is an automatic per room, per night charge that covers a number of hotel services and amenities that would customarily be charged to each guest individually. These amenities include (not limited to): High Speed Internet, Fitness Center, Inter-Resort Shuttle Services, In-room safe, Seasonal Crafts and Activities, Concierge Services, and more. Plus, Aquatopia Indoor Waterpark is always included with every stay.   As a “per room” rather than “per person” charge, the Resort Fee covers all registered guests.

Individual Pays All Charges: Each guest will be responsible for payment of guest room, tax, resort fee and incidentals. Each guest will be required to pay a deposit equal to the first night’s room and tax at the time of reservation and must present a valid major credit card along with photo ID upon check-in to access ancillary services. Cancellation requests received more than 72 hours prior to scheduled arrival, will be subject to a $100.00 processing fee. The balance of advance deposit will be refunded. Cancellation requests received later than 72 hours prior to scheduled arrival, will forfeit the entire first night’s deposit.
