No smoking policy

El gran sueño is 100% smoke-free. Smoking is not permitted inside any part of the house and apartments nor in the terraces and garden. Should it be brought to our attention that smoking has taken place, a refreshing fee of one night's accommodation will be applicable, as we will not be able to accommodate the new guests until the smell is gone.

A charge of €100 will be taken in the event of a lost key. This covers the change of the lock and the cost of a new key.

Lost property

We are more than happy to post any lost items subject to the costs of postage. We reserve the right to give to charity or dispose of lost property if it is unclaimed 2 weeks from the departure date.

Breakages and damage

We ask all guests to treat our house as if they were staying with us personally, leaving it clean and tidy.

In the case of stays in the rooms we reserve the right to charge to your credit or debit card the cost for any damage done to your room or suite (self-catering apartment) or its contents during your stay, or for any items that are missing when you leave.

In the case of stays in the apartments, all guests accept a €250 housekeeping / security bond for each reservation, which will be charged during the check-in. Please inform us of any breakages or damage so we can repair / replace before the next guests arrive. We understand that there is general everyday wear and tear on the place, however, if damage, breakages or cleaning are excessive, then additional payment will be required that could be in excess of the €250 housekeeping / security bond. El gran sueño reserve the right to seek additional compensation from guests if damage / breakage / cleaning is deemed to be greater than €250. When no damage occurs, the housekeeping / security bond will be refunded via the same payment method, generally within two days after departure.
