Cancellation Policy Amended at Pelican Beach Resort

As a condo owner at the Destin Pelican Beach Resort, I just wanted to share with all my readers the e-mail I got yesterday from the management company at the resort.

Important Gulf Update - May 5, 2010

As Okaloosa County officials monitor the current situation in the western Gulf of Mexico, the shores along Destin and northwest Florida beaches look fantastic! The sand is still sugar white and the water is as emerald as ever. So, if you’re planning on visiting now and throughout the summer, please keep those plans!

Over the past 48 hours, the winds have shifted in favor of Florida’s beaches pushing the oil further west in the Gulf of Mexico and away from our shores. This will allow more time for containment and treatment by the ever growing fleet of vessels throughout the gulf waters. State and local officials are gaining some confidence that preventative measures will be successful.

Because changes come about hourly and 30 days is a long way away, we are asking you to wait before canceling your vacation, especially those of you who are scheduled to arrive more than 30 days from today. Rest assured, we will keep you informed over the coming days and weeks regarding any changes in conditions.

To help our guests with their vacation planning, Pelican Beach management has modified our cancellation policy regarding this situation:

Gulf of Mexico - Deepwater Horizon Incident Cancellation Policy

We are advising all guests of Pelican Beach Management to please wait until closer to your arrival date before canceling due to the oil spill. If, at that time, it is necessary for you to cancel your reservation because of eminent oil landfall in the Destin area, you will not be charged for a late cancellation. If you are already at Pelican Beach Resort or The Terrace at the time of landfall, you will be refunded any unused portion of your rent if you choose to check-out early.

So, please feel free to make your reservation with confidence knowing you have flexibility if the need arises.
