taxe de séjour
Explanation:
J'ai immédiatement pensé comme vous en voyant la question.

En cherchant un peu sur le net :

Odalys - Residence Val Claret
A small resort fee (taxe de séjour) is payable per person per day, paid locally to the residence reception.

En y réfléchissant deux fois, ce n'est peut-être pas si simple. Certains sites parlent à la fois de "resort tax" et de "resort fee". La première serait donc la "taxe de séjour", l'autre peut-être des "frais de service" permettant d'accéder à tel ou tel service :

Resort fee. An additional charge levied by some hotels, ostensibly for the use of various “resort” amenities, regardless of whether the guests uses them or not. A controversial practice, whose critics claim amounts to misleading pricing.

When I checked in, I was told I would have to pay a $10-per-day resort fee to cover the use of the pool, exercise facilities and the “free” newspaper.
