Cancellation & Reservation Policy


We are aware these are uncertain times, so when you make a hotel reservation we offer a flexible policy: 

  • No more cancellation penalty for arrivals up to December 22, 2020.  You may cancel without penalty up to 24 hours prior to your date of arrival. We truly hope you will keep or re-schedule your reservation or book your next stay knowing you are free of penalties to cancel when doing so.

*Important Information:

  • Please note that changes to an existing reservation will be subject to availability and any rate differences.
  • For reservations booked via online travel agents or other third-party travel professionals, please contact the booking provider for information on their policies.


Once you "confirm and book" your reservation, the cancellation policy will take effect. Rates are NON-REFUNDABLE within 14 days of date of arrival. 

Cancellations made within 14 days of arrival are 100% non-refundable and non-transferable for all nights, for any reason. Cancellations made more than 14 days prior to arrival are refundable, yet have a 1-night non-refundable penalty.

Room reservations can only be cancelled by email. Room reservations are NON-TRANSFERABLE to alternate names/guests. We highly recommend all guests to retain travel insurance for your protection. 

The name on the credit card provided to guarantee your reservation needs to correspond to the name under which the reservation is made. Alternatively, please email our reservations department at [email protected] or (+297) 586-6654 for further details.

Boardwalk Hotel has the right to cancel or refuse reservations at any time, with no obligations other than to refund any money received.
