Early Check-in or Late Check-out
Early Check In - Late Check Out Policy
Check-In Time: 4pm Check-Out time: 11am
Often times the biggest part of a family’s vacation budget is flight costs. The time of day you travel can often change the cost per ticket, and that can add up quickly.
On the other hand, sometimes folks pay more to get the flight time they want so they don’t have to wait around for hours before check in time.
To help make your decision making a little easier in this regard, and hopefully set your mind at ease a bit, I’ll explain how we work the potentiality of having an early flight in (or late flight out).
Early Flights into Cancun:
Let’s say you have an early flight in. There are two possibilities in this case, I’ll give you the worst of the two first.
Early In Possibility 1 - worst case: Let’s say the day you arrive early I have another party departing the same day. In this case we can’t get into the condo to begin the cleaning process until 11am check out time. Anytime after 12 noon you can drop off your luggage to the condo you will be staying in. This is a real nice feature and has been very well received by our guests. Possibility 1 - Recommendation: I highly recommend that you pack your bathing suite in a special area of your luggage that is easily accessible. Then when you arrive to the resort, change in the public facilities. Once your set, then take your luggage up to the condo. Just because you arrive before check in time does not mean you can’t use the resort pool, beach , and other facilities.
Early In Possibility 2 - even better: Let’s say the day you arrive early I do not have another party departing the same day. In this case, every effort will be made to allow you to check in anytime after 11am. Please keep in mind that if you see a departure let’s say a day before you will be arriving, it’s possible that party is looking for a late check out. Bottom line is if we don’t have a same day check out, you have a fair chance that you will be able to fully occupy the condo anytime after 11am. And if the property has been vacant for 2 or more days prior to your arrival, you have a great chance that that you will be able to fully occupy the condo anytime after 11am.
Late Flights out of Cancun:
Let’s say you have a late flight out of Cancun. There are two possibilities in this case, I’ll give you the worst of the two first.
Late Out Possibility 1 - worst case: Let’s say the day you are leaving Cancun you have a late flight out. Let’s say I also have another party arriving the same day. In this case please have your luggage neatly packed and placed in the entry area of the condo. You can leave your luggage there in the entry while you go out and enjoy your day. Please depart the condo, less your luggage, by 11am. It is important that you do return by 3pm to retrieve your luggage.
Late Out Possibility 2 - even better: Let’s say the day you need a late check out I do not have another party arriving the same day. In this case, every effort will be made to allow you to check out anytime before 4pm. Please keep in mind that if you see an arrival let’s say a day after you depart, it’s possible that party is looking for an early check in. Bottom line is if we don’t have a same day arrival, you have a fair chance that you will be able to fully occupy the condo until 4pm.
SDC - Same Day Change-over
What is an SDC?: It simply means we have one party departing and another party arriving on the same day.
Early Arrivals/Late Flights Out
1) It’s important you understand you cannot drop off your bags prior to 12noon. Or if you are departing late, you cannot come back for your luggage after 3pm.
2) Please place your luggage neatly in the entry area of the condo and please DO NOT ask the cleaning people if you can change, shower, or do anything other than drop off your bags neatly in the entry area.
3) Please Do keep an eye on the availability calendar. You will not be notified of bookings that could effect your ability to check in early or depart late. The only exception would be if you are looking for a late check out, and an SDC booking is made AFTER you have arrived to Cancun, you will be notified via email of this booking.
Is there an extra charge for this? No, none of the possibilities above cost more money.
What if we have an early flight in AND a late flight out, do the same rules still apply? Yes.
