Any complaint concerning the cleanliness and functioning of the equipment must be made directly to the KEY HOLDER on site or to the SUPPLIER and BELLAVISTA.

In the event of any problems concerning the enjoyment of the PROPERTY or the performance of ancillary SERVICES provided for in the PRELIMINARY QUOTATION TO BOOKING, the CLIENT is obliged, within the framework of the provisions of the law, to make every effort to contribute to the elimination of the problem and to reduce to a minimum any damage that may result from the said problem.
