4. Accommodation from our offer

4.1. Maximum number of people
The accommodation units from our offer may only be accommodated by the maximum number of people listed in the description of the reserved accommodation unit. The same applies to children, regardless of their age, with the exception of facilities allowing another child under the age of four free of charge. The guest is asked to mention this fact while booking. It is also forbidden to place tents or caravans on the land belonging to accommodation unit. In the event of exceeding the maximum number of people, or placing a tent or caravan on the accommodation's land, the owner may charge a fee per extra person, or remove the extra people from the estate, or demand the removal of the tent or caravan. If the guest ignores the request, everyone will be removed from the estate and no refund will be made.
4.2. Size of the facility
Our associates have personally visited each facility in our offer. With listed facility sizes it is always about external dimensions, and consequently there's a possibility that the internal dimensions may be up to 15 % smaller than the ones listed.
4.3. Pets, bugs and allergies
Despite thorough cleaning and maintenance of our facilities, occasionally a bug or mouse may be found who got there from their natural habitat where the house is located. RONA cannot be held responsible for this. Although pets aren't allowed in all facilities, this does not mean that there have never been any pets in the booked accommodation. RONA does not take any responsibility for the guest's allergic reactions in certain facilities.
When selecting facilities from our our offer, we always make sure we select facilities located in good, safe and quiet areas. Despite this, we cannot guarantee that there will be no noise during the guest's stay, because we cannot affect or control things such as traffic noise, noises from nearby construction sites etc. Neither the owner nor RONA can be held responsible for noises coming from the facility's surroundings.
4.5. Swimming pool
In the event of the facility having a swimming pool, the guest is obligated for safety reasons to stick to every advice of the owner or RONA. Using the pool is exclusively at your own risk. Children can use the pool only with an adult present.
5. Features of the accommodation units
In many facilities from our offer guests have many features at their availability such as a washing machine, dishwasher, fridges, microwaves, television sets, satellite receivers, internet access, jacuzzi etc. They can freely use these features, but RONA cannot be held responsible if one of these features unexpectedly stops working during the guest's stay. This also applies to sanitary facilities and installations.
6. Time of arrival and departure; shortening or extending your stay
After setting the total reservation cost, at least 4 weeks before arrival travel documents will be delivered to the guest confirming that he/she is the legitimate user of the booked accommodation.
These travel documents include a voucher, a description of the journey describing the accurate route to the accommodation and accurate information about where and how to collect the accommodation's keys (the code for the KeyBox or SmartLock).
The guest is asked to pay attention to the contact numbers in order to be able to contact Rona call centre. Guests are required to fill in the required information in the guest portal, regarding their personal data so that this information can be sent ot the tourism authorities. This dana entitles: name and surname; gender; place, country and date of birth; place and country of residence. This information is required from all the guests, including children. The estimated time of arrival/departure is listed in the travel documents. The time of arrival must be between 4 PM and 8 PM, while the time of departure is till 10 AM. In the event of arrival not being possible before 8 PM, the guest is obligated to notify the travel agent or person in charge of the keys, with whom they will arrange when to collect the keys. In the event of the guest wanting to extend their stay, they are asked to promptly inform their travel agent or Rona reservations office who will, if the desired period's available, gladly book them an extension of their stay.
7. Ensuring replacement accommodation and reservation cancellation by RONA
In exceptional cases due to unpredictable or unavoidable circumstances, RONA may give the guest appropriate replacement accommodation of equal value and quality. RONA is authorized to cancel the reservation before or during the period of the guest using the accommodation, if unpredictable or unavoidable circumstances occur preventing the accommodation's usage, endangering the guest or accommodation, or lessening the service's quality to the point of it being impossible to provide the contracted service. In this case the guest will be refunded for payments already made, less end by the cost of already-used services. In any case RONA is not required to pay the guest compensation.
8. Other obligations of the guest
During their stay, it is the guest's duty to use the accommodation owner's property and equipment with appropriate care. They must also adjust their behaviour as not to disturb the other guests, neighbours and host. In the event of the guest not adjusting their behaviour with the House rules even after being warned, they lose their right to the booked accommodation and must leave immediately without compensation. Any damages and deficiencies caused or discovered by the guests must immediately be reported to the person in charge of the keys or RONA employee. This way damages and deficiencies will immediately be removed without lessening the quality of stay. The guest is responsible for any damages or deficiencies they've cause if they cannot prove that they're not responsible. The same applies if the accommodation unit, due to damages, dirt or missing equipment cannot be submitted to the next guest for them to use. Rona will charge the guest on the spot for any damages or deficiencies.
9. Complaints and compensation claims
It is the guest's obligation to consciously handle the unit and its inventory. On the day of departure the accommodation unit must be in the same condition as it was when the guest arrived. In the event of the accommodation's condition differing from its condition when booked, the guest must immediately notify the person in charge of the keys. If visible irregularities are not reported immediately after arriving, it will be assumed that the unit was handed over in proper condition. If any irregularities occur during the guest's stay, it is their obligation to act in the same way. In the event of the owner or person in charge of the keys being unable to rectify the irregularity within a reasonable period, it is the guest's duty to inform Rona call centre.
If the guest voluntarily leaves the facility or finds other accommodation without giving RONA time to resolve the issue causing the guest's dissatisfaction, the guest loses their right to receive compensation regardless of whether their reasons for departure were justified or not. Compensation requests must be delivered to RONA in written form within two weeks after using the accommodation unit with proof included (pictures, witness statements etc.). Complaints made after the two-week deadline will not be taken into consideration. We emphasize that it is in the guest's interest to act in good faith and show willingness to resolve their complaint during their stay and to give their written complaint to Rona on the spot, and request written confirmation that the complaint has been received. If the guest does not meet these requirements, they lose their right to receive compensation. RONA is obligated to deliver a written decision regarding the complaint within 21 days of receiving the complaint in the same form (e-mail, ordinary mail, or personal delivery which will be replied by registered post with a return receipt). If it is necessary in order to gather information and verify the claims in the complaint, RONA may postpone the decision deadline for another 14 days, of which it is obligated to inform the guest making the complaint in written form. RONA will resolve only those complaints for which the guest provides evidence that they gave their written complaint to the service provider on the spot and that the cause could not be eliminated on the spot. Until RONA reaches a decision, the guest must refrain from mediation by any other person, judicial institution or giving information to the media.
10. RONA's obligations
RONA agrees to give the guest for the booked period a clean and tidy accommodation unit equipped according to its description. If the unit does not match the description on the reservation, RONA will do everything to ensure the removal of any deficiencies, ie to ensure replacement accommodation of equal value. In the event of this being impossible, not being achieved in a reasonable period, or if the guest refuses the suggested replacement accommodation, RONA will reimburse the guest any form of value reduction, as long as it has been undeniably established that RONA is responsible for it. If the guest experiences loss or damage due to RONA's negligence, resulting in violation of the contract, RONA accepts full responsibility for the caused damage. RONA's legal responsibility is limited to the amount of the accommodation's price (during which everyone's claims are paid together) and does not include personal damages such as material and financial losses. RONA wil not be responsible in the event of the losses or damages being attributed to the following causes:
- Actions or omissions made by the guest or their companions;
- Unpredictable or inevitable failures of third parties not included in providing the service listed in the booking;
- Force majeure or events which could not be foreseen or avoided by RONA, the travel agent or the person in charge of the keys;
- Using swimming pools, children's playgrounds, any sports' facilities (eg. a tennis court or football field, fitness centres etc.). Use of these facilities is exclusively at the guest's own risk;
- Damages and losses due to burglary.
The above listed causes equally apply outside the contractual obligations. RONA specifically rules out responsibility for the actions of the auxiliary staff.
11. Travel documents
When travelling to the Republic of Croatia, the guest must have a valid personal travel document (a passport or identification card, depending on the guest's country of origin) not only for themselves, but for any other users of the accommodation. Furthermore, it is the guest's duty to check whether visa is required to enter Croatia or any countries on their way, obtain one on time, as well as respect the customs and currency regulations of the Republic of Croatia and any countries on their way.
12. The jurisdiction of the court
The parties commit to seek to resolve any disputes by mutual agreement, and if this is not possible, in the event of a legal dispute the court in Rijeka has jurisdiction and the law of the Republic of Croatia is applied.
RONA is obliged to permanently protect personal information of it's guests and that those information will be used only for booking purposes (offers, invoices) and other necessary communication with guest. Guest's personal data will not be forwarded to unauthorized persons. For protection of personal information guest itself is also responsible in way to take care of his own user name and password by using appropriate computer equipment and antivirus computer protection.
