Tuscana Resort is a self-catering resort. What does this mean?
Self-catering means there is no daily housekeeping. The condo is cleaned before the guest arrives and then after the guest’s departure. The condo is equipped with a starting kit which consists of toiletries, toilet paper, and dishwashing liquid for the first day. After the starter kit runs out, each guest is responsible for purchasing all other supplies they will be using during their stay.
Why do I need a security deposit and what options do I have?
At check in, the resort requires a security deposit from all guests. Our condos are privately owned and as a management company, the resort collects the security deposit to protect the contents of each unit for the owners. All of our guests have two options for the security deposit:
- The guest can choose a $300 authorization on a major credit card that is released after check-out, if there are no damages to the unit.
- Or our guest can purchase a one time, non refundable $39 property protection plan that will cover up to $1500 of incidental damages.
The authorization can only be done with a major credit card and it is not an actual charge but a hold placed on your credit limit. A debit card, will take up to 30 days to release the authorization.
What is the housekeeping fee and when does it apply?
The cleaning fee applies to all reservations regardless of the length of stay. The one-time fee of $45.00 plus tax will be charged for 1- & 2-bedroom condominium suites and $55.00 plus tax for 3-bedroom condominium suites. Check your confirmation letter for more details.
