I booked a room at at the Sunset Plaza in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico through booking.com. After 5 minutes, I saw a better deal elsewhere so I immediately went and cancelled the reservation. I got an email saying that the cancellation cost 16000 MXN ($800 USD). Can the hotel actually charge this absurd fee, even though I canceled within 5 minutes of making the reservation, and 30 days prior to the trip, thus not causing them to lose out on potential business?
