Hacienda el Sueño


Rental terms and conditions

1. Application

1.1 These General Terms and Conditions apply to all offers, reservations and agreements regarding all accommodations and other facilities, which are rented out at Hacienda el Sueño. Additional conditions can be set on location, these then apply in addition to these General Terms and Conditions. If there is a conflict between the General Terms and Conditions and the additional terms and conditions, the additional terms and conditions shall prevail.

1.2 A 'Lessee' is the person entering into an agreement with the Lessor concerning the temporary rent of an accommodation. The term 'Users' means the person(s) who stay(s) in the accommodation together with the Lessee.

1.3 Lessor is (also) understood to mean the party that mediates at Hacienda el Sueño in the rental of the accommodations.

1.4 These General Terms and Conditions apply regardless of whether the Lessee refers to any own terms and conditions or to other general terms and conditions.

1.5 Alternative arrangements in relation to these Terms and Conditions apply only if they have been previously agreed in writing.

2. Reservations

2.1 Lessor will only process reservations from persons who are 18 years or older. Reservations by persons younger than that age are therefore invalid.

2.2 The Lessor reserves the right at all times, without statement of reasons, to refuse reservations, particularly (although not exclusively) for groups and stays that are not of a recreational nature, or otherwise to impose special conditions on them.

2.3 If the Lessor processes a reservation, the Lessor will send the Lessee a (written) order confirmation within 14 days, including an invoice. The order confirmation as well as the invoice must be checked for correctness immediately after receipt. Any inaccuracies must be communicated to the Lessor immediately, but in any case, latest within 8 days.

2.4 If the Lessee is not in possession of a written order confirmation including invoice within 14 days after the reservation has been made, the Lessee must immediately contact the reservation department, failing which the reservation will be considered void.

2.5 An agreement is reached between the Lessee and the Lessor at the moment that the Lessor has sent the order confirmation.

2.6 The agreement concerns the rental of accommodation and/or other facilities for recreational use, which by its nature is of a short duration.

3. Changes to the Agreement

3.1 If the Lessee wishes to make changes to the agreement after the agreement has been reached, the Lessor is not obliged to accept them. It is at the Lessor's discretion to determine whether and to what extent those changes are to be accepted. In the event that the Lessor accepts the changes, the Lessor may charge amendment costs.

3.2 The Lessor is permitted, if there are circumstances that give rise to this, to adjust the reservation in reasonableness and fairness. This may mean, among other things, that one or more alternative accommodations are offered as an alternative.

4.Change of Lessee/User

4.1 The Lessee and other users of the leased property are not permitted to hand over the accommodation, under whatever name or for whatever reason, to persons other than the persons named in the agreement, unless otherwise agreed in writing with the Lessor.

4.2 If a replacement of the user(s) is agreed, the original Lessee remains obliged to pay the outstanding amount of rent, the amendment costs (see art. 3.1) and any additional costs caused by the replacement, as well as any cancellation costs.

5. Prices

5.1 The Lessee owes the Lessor the agreed rental price, as stated in the written confirmation and invoice of the reservation. If the costs of the Lessor (staff, energy, taxes, etc.) have demonstrably and unexpectedly increased after the agreement has been reached, the Lessor has the right to increase its prices and to charge the increased price to the Lessee. If this price increase is implemented within 3 months after the agreement has been reached, that price increase will amount to a maximum of 5% of the previously agreed price and the Lessee has the right to dissolve (cancel) the agreement on basis of said price increase.

5.2 Price discounts and/or special offers can no longer be implemented once the order confirmation has been sent by the Lessor.

5.3 All prices are, insofar as applicable, inclusive of VAT unless stated otherwise.

7. Payments

7.1 For reservations, a 50 % deposit is required within 14 days of booking. The remaining 50% of the rent must be paid no later than 14 days before arrival. For bookings that take place within 14 days before arrival, the entire reservation value must be paid in one time.

7.2 In the event of late payment of the amounts invoiced to the Lessee, the Lessee will be in default from the day on which the payment term has expired. In that case, the lessor reserves the right to dissolve (cancel) the agreement with effect from the day that the period of 14 days has expired. The Lessee is then liable for all damages that the Lessor suffered or will suffer as a result, including all costs that the Lessor has had to incur in connection with the reservation and the dissolution of said reservation, and the Lessee will also owe the statutory interest. In addition to the foregoing, the Lessor has the right to at least charge the cancellation costs per accommodation. In that case, the provisions of Article 12 will apply.

Our park manager has the right to enter rented accommodations without prior permission in all cases where this is necessary with regard to the service to be provided, including carrying out maintenance and cleaning work and testing and inspecting installations. Buildings and installations can be temporarily taken out of service for maintenance work, without this entitling to a full or partial refund of the (rental) amounts paid or still to be paid.
