We are looking to book a 2 BR condo at the Shores of Panama for this July. I've checked out VRBO, but they are actually more expensive than booking directly through the resort. Not to mention, most owners require $200-$300 security deposit, and the resort does not. They only require the first night and taxes for the deposit and that is applies towards the balance at check-in.
However, my question is this...On most all of the VRBO sites that I visited, they mention a resort fee of $27 per night. But when I break down the total price of booking directly through the resort I can't find where this fee is included. I thoroughly read through the rental agreement and still didn't see anything about a resort fee. I want to go ahead and book, but I also want to make sure that we aren't going to have any surprises at check-in.
Does anyone have any experience with this?
