  • The REFINE All-Inclusive Package must be purchased for a minimum of 4 consecutive days. If you are staying for less than 4 days, it must be purchased for the duration of the stay. The purchase must be for consecutive days within the same week, in other words you may not distribute the four days throughout the total length of stay.
  • If the REFINE All-Inclusive Package is purchased mid-stay, then it must be purchased through to the day of check-out.
  • If Members acquire additional units for their guests through a rental but the guests are not staying in the same unit as the Member, the guests will have optional access to the REFINE All-Inclusive Package as long as the member is staying at the same resort during the same dates.
  • Members will have a limit on the number of additional units they can rent for third parties without the REFINE All-Inclusive Package being mandatory. Members will be allowed to rent as many additional units for third parties as they show in their membership agreement without the All-Inclusive being mandatory. That is, each membership agreement allows for one rental week for a third party. Once they exceed this limit, guests will have to purchase the REFINE All-Inclusive Package. For example, if a member owns weeks 21 and 22, they will be allowed to rent up to two additional units for third parties without a mandatory All-Inclusive Package.
  • If a Member of Royal Resorts exchanges their week(s) and gives it to a non-member third party via a Guest Certificate, said Guest will have optional access to the REFINE All-Inclusive Package. This policy is only valid if the Royal Resorts Member uses a Royal Resorts week for the exchange. If he/she uses a week which is not one of their Royal Resorts membership weeks, this courtesy cannot be granted. Only one Guest Certificate per Royal Resorts membership agreementis allowed. In other words, for each week owned, one Guest Certificate can be given to a non-member who will have optional access to the REFINE All-Inclusive Package.
