As is customary in hotels, our front desk team will request a credit card at check-in in order to establish a line of credit with the resort. This is will allow you to charge any incidentals such as boutique, spa, scuba, excursions or any other charges not covered by your vacation package to your hotel account. When using a debit card at check-in, kindly note that a pre-authorization is taken on your debit card, which will show up on your account as a pending “charge”. If you do not intend to settle your final bill with this debit card at check-out, you should use a different card at the check-in process. Otherwise, the pre-authorization hold will remain a “charge” on your debit card and it may take up to 30 days before this ”charge” is being released by your bank. The exact procedure is different from bank to bank and the hotel has no influence over you bank’s procedures even if you use a different card at check-out.
