accommodation and camping services according to the published information,

description, term and valid price list, and in accordance with the confirmed

reservation/contract, in its name and for its account. As the customer of the end-user

Service, an agency or tour operator may appear, and the provisions of the general terms

and conditions apply to them as intermediaries. By submitting a booking enquiry, you

acknowledge that you are agreed with the General terms and conditions of the Resort

and it becomes a legal obligation. When providing services in the Resort, the rules

prescribed in the House rules and catering practices in accordance with positive

legislation of the Republic of Croatia apply.


After you make an initial inquiry for accommodation, you are considered a potential user

of the accommodation and on the basis of it, the pre-booking is made. All records are

kept under the name of the person who sent the inquiry (if it is a physical person, the

name and surname; and if it is a legal person, the full name of the company with all the

data), and that person is considered the Holder of the reservation. The Holder of the

reservation must be older than 18 years and is authorized by the other designated

persons to make the reservation on behalf of all persons listed in the inquiry. By

completing and submitting the booking request, the reservation Holder confirms that

he/she is authorized to book on behalf of everyone and that others agree, and that they

are also bound by the terms of the reservation. When booking, the Holder is required to

provide all the information required by the booking process. Inquiry into the reservation of

accommodation is considered as an open inquiry forwarded to the Resort by any means

of communication in writing (memo, e-mail, fax, etc.). On the basis of an open inquiry, the

Resort will make a reservation and will provide the reservation Holder with a quotation for

the reserved service and the operating conditions. The Holder of the reservation is

responsible for fulfilling all the conditions of the business mentioned in the pre-booking,

which primarily relates to the payment of deposits, settling the costs of the reserved

service (deposit payment, settlement, rest of the invoice). The Booking of the

accommodation for the appropriate term is valid only if the reservation Holder has fulfilled

all the conditions specified in the pre-booking and after the written confirmation of the

reservation (voucher) by the Resort. If the booking Holder does not meet the required

conditions within the specified deadline, the reservation is deemed to be void.
