Front Office Protocols
The Front Office is one our most high traffic areas in the resort. It covers the resort entrance, front desk, concierge, bell service, and other counters and areas within the lobby. Special procedures are in place in these areas to ensure the health and safety of all guests and employees that come through our resort.
PHYSICAL DISTANCING PRACTICES
Physical distancing is practiced throughout our resorts. Guests are requested to maintain 6ft (2m) apart from other guests not in their same travel party. Elevator capacity is also reduced to single family use or not more than four people at one time.To aid with physical distancing practices all guest transportation vehicles have a clear barrier for the driver's seat. The front passenger seat is not available for guest use. Valet service has also been suspended until further notice. We continue to make modifications in the way we provide services to ensure physical distancing guidelines are in place.
Cleaning And Sanitizing Practices
All counters, bell carts, office and storage doors, telephones, and workstations are regularly cleaned. All high touch point transactions have been minimized. Guest folios will be provided electronically at time of check out unless there is a specific request for a hard copy. Credit card payment is encouraged. Cash trays and pens are sanitized after each use. Guest room keys and pool towel cards are cleaned and disinfected upon return. Hand sanitizing stations are placed throughout our resorts for guests use.
Housekeeping protocols cover two major areas of our resorts, Guestrooms and Public Areas. Cleaning and sanitizing these areas remain one of our top priorities. Extra steps are implemented to increase all cleaning and sanitizing measures.
Cleaning and sanitizing of all guestrooms are done with intense detail. Guestrooms are only cleaned when not occupied by a guest. High touch items to include TV remote, Do Not Disturb Sign, Notepad and Pen are cleaned and disinfected then placed into a clean sealed bag which is placed in the guestroom before check in.
Specific sanitizing consideration is given to room and balcony furniture, phones, thermostats, cabinetry pulls and hardware, doors and doorknobs, bathroom vanities and accessories, bathroom fixtures and hardware, mini fridge accessories, mini fridge fixtures and hardware, windows, mirrors, frames, lights and lighting controls, closet hangers and related amenities.More Guestroom related cleaning information can be read in the Guest Protocols.
