          Hi Can you please tell me how you booked this accommodation? Did you book directly on line or was it part of a package booked through an agent? It looks like when you book through the hotel's website, it goes through a third party and they talk about the possibility of over booking, yikes! Any info you can share would be much appreciated. Thanks.
