Surf Hotel, Nautica Bay and Leda beach clubs - are now closed
Due to the ongoing Covid-19 situation and circumstances beyond our control, we are now having to close the Surf Hotel, Nautica Bay and Leda beach clubs for this summer, 2020. Our staff and set up teams are devastated, because they’ve all worked so hard to put things in place for your arrival.
If you are due to travel with us - we will contact your group leader as soon as possible to discuss your options.

How can I rebook my holiday
If you are eligible to reschedule your holiday, you may change to another date in 2021; or you can change to a ski holiday this winter! Not only that, but we’ll even give you a gift of a 10% discount to use on your new holiday to help push things along!
When rebooking, you can make changes to the date, passenger names, your beach club; or even change to a ski holiday. If you choose a holiday that’s cheaper than the one you originally booked, you’ll pay the lower amount. If you choose a holiday that’s more expensive, you’ll need to pay the difference in price. You can even change your summer holiday to a winter ski holiday.
For customers with EasyJet flights an amendment fee may, (or may not), apply. Our sales team will make you fully aware of this on rebooking, so you have the choice to continue or not.
Make use of our 10% offer
If you are eligible to reschedule your holiday to next summer, you can make use of a 10% discount on all our prices (now online) for 2021. This discount is available if you can reschedule before Sept 30th. It is not always combinable with other offers, or our 5% or offers for deposits and early payment. The good news is that this offer is combinable with our current £100 off early bird ski promo - if you wish to reschedule to a ski holiday for this winter - which lasts until July 30th.

If you are concerned about traveling on your upcoming holiday, Ocean Elements offers the flexibility to postpone and reschedule your holiday to a date in 2021.
