2014 HURRICANE POLICY
In the event that any Palace Resort is directly impacted by a hurricane¹ while your guest are on
vacation, we will gladly offer a certificate² for a return stay to the original resort for the number
of unused nights³.
Cancellations - If a hurricane watch is issued by the US National Weather Center, any passenger
due to travel within 72 hours of the watch will not incur a penalty for cancelling their vacation.
Please advise guests who wish to cancel their reservation, to directly contact their travel
professional who booked their vacation package.
No Show - No show penalties will also be waived from the day a hurricane watch is issued by the
US National Weather Center, and up to 5 days after normal activities are reinstated at the hotel.
Early departures – In the event of a hurricane threat, guests that are currently on property who
wish to depart early may do so without incurring an early penalty and will receive a certificate
for the number of unused nights, valid for travel within 1 calendar year of original reserved dates.
Relocations - In the event of a hurricane, guests have the option to transfer their reservation to
an alternate Palace Resort destination that is not within the storm’s projected path (except Le
Blanc Spa Resort). Rooms will be offered at the same rate based on availability. In the event that
rates are lower at the relocating hotel, a credit for the difference will be issued. We cannot
guarantee room category & we will not issue return stay if this option is used.
Rescheduling - If guests wish to postpone their vacation and travel at a later date, Palace
Resorts will guarantee their original rate for travel within 1 calendar year. Guests wishing to utilize
this option must reschedule their trip within 30 days following a storm. Blackout periods may
apply. Rate protection will only apply to the number of original nights and number of guests
booked. Additional nights or guests will be booked at current applicable rate. No name
¹Policy will go into effect once the US National Weather Center issues a Hurricane Watch to the
area and the hurricane directly hits any Palace Resort.
