All refunds are payable by PayPal or credit card. Refunds are subject to PayPal/credit card fees and the terms and conditions of those institutions. We do not issue refunds by bank transfer. No-shows will be charged at the full booking price.

We do not issue refunds or credits for flight cancellations, due to any circumstances. 

Any changes to your reservation must be received via email no less than 30 days prior to your original arrival date. Changes are subject to availability. There are no refunds or credits issued for reservation changes within 30 days of the arrival date that reduce the number of nights stayed.

There are no refunds or credits issued for early checkouts or missed meals, yoga, spa sessions, ceremonies, excursions, etc.
There are no refunds or credits issued due to bad weather, natural disaster or any other situation beyond our control. 

The remaining balance of your total room cost including taxes is due upon arrival at Villa Sumaya. Villa Sumaya accepts cash (US Dollars or Guatemalan Quetzales), credit cards (Visa or Master Card) and personal checks. Traveler’s Checks are no longer accepted. Alternatively, you may pay your hotel room balance via bank wire transfer. Please contact us at reservations@villasumaya.com if you would like us to send you bank account details and wire transfer instructions.

We highly recommend that all of our guests purchase Travel Insurance, which is generally inexpensive, but can really save a lot of financial loss and emotional distress if an unforeseen event occurs. We recommend your travel insurance will cover you for airline flight and accommodation cancellations. We also recommend you consider coverage for accident, illness, medical evacuation and theft.

Check-in & Check-out

Our check-in time is from 3:00-8:30pm, and check-out time is from 7:30-11:00am. The fee for early check-in or late check-out is $30 for the first hour and $5 for each additional hour. We require advance notice for any early/late check-ins or check-outs. Accommodating the request will depend on room availability.

We DO NOT guarantee that rooms will be available for participants to arrive prior to 3 p.m. check-in on the start date listed in your agreement.  You must provide accurate information to your participants regarding your program start date and 3 p.m. check-in time. Participants must book additional nights with our reservations team as needed and pay for them in advance.
