The Barceló Hotel Group’s health and safety concept
Our seal of health represents and guarantees all our experience and research in health, safety and hygiene, adapted to the new situation.
This programme introduces new protocols and strengthens measures to comply with recommendations from WHO, international bodies such as the WTTC (World Travel & Tourism Council) and government institutions in each country where we operate.
Visit the We Care About You page, where you can find additional information and interactive maps with all the details!
The Barceló Hotel Group’s health and safety concept
Strengthened cleaning protocols under the supervision of a new hygienist responsible for guaranteeing complete disinfection of the hotel. Specific audits will be carried out to verify the new protocols before the hotel opens and the usual audits will be strengthened for regular verification by our partners:
The Barceló Hotel Group’s health and safety concept
Reduced room capacity in common and leisure areas (subject to the recommendations from the health authorities at all times). Unnecessary decorative elements (mainly stationery) have been removed from the rooms. Protective equipment for the hotel staff, washing of bed and bathroom linens at temperatures higher than 60ºC.
The buffet and snack service are available, although in some areas it is assisted by the kitchen and restaurant staff. There are still 2 eating times (lunch and dinner). The Lobby Bar and Pool Bar are operating as usual, although guests must respect social distancing measures. For this purpose, tables have been rearranged to adhere to the 1.5 metre distancing.
All Inclusive Service: breakfast, lunch, dinner*, snack and a selection of drinks for this accommodation type, entertainment activities and evening leisure offering. In accordance with the measures described above.
*Themed restaurants: The same restaurant is assigned for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
The use of a mask is compulsory to enter the buffet area. Guests must bring their own masks.
We hereby inform you that as per the recommendations from our health and safety advisers, we have eliminated the requirement of wearing gloves in our buffet.
Our specialists have indicated that the safest method is frequent disinfecting with hydroalcoholic gel, which is compulsory for anyone serving food from our buffet or coming in contact with any frequently visited area.
At Barceló Hotel Group, we are highly committed to sustainability, so we prefer not to generate plastic waste if not strictly necessary.
However, guests may continue using their gloves voluntarily, if desired.
They are operating with reduced room capacity and in accordance with the compulsory measures and recommendations from the health authorities at all times.
The use of masks is determined by the health authorities at all times. Currently, mask usage is compulsory in outdoor spaces and any closed space, if it is not possible to maintain a safe distance of at least 1.5 metres. Guests must bring their own masks.
There are no restrictions, either for opening hours or for shifts. They are open just like previous years, but with a distance of at least 1.5 metres between groups of sun loungers. We will continue our sun lounger service to ensure their proper use. Sun loungers cannot be reserved.
We have designed a programme that includes the most suitable activities for children, teenagers and adults (which are mainly offered outdoors). **Some activities may require advanced registration. The evening leisure offering is mainly in outdoor areas.
**No contact-based activities will be given for the entertainment activities, which are always offered under the supervision of the expert supervisors.
The stretch of beaches is approximately 14 kilometres from La Canaleta to El Portil. They are divided into zones, starting Monday, 15 June, as a safety measure to control the capacity, which is established at 108,032 beachgoers during high tide (there are 15,000 residents in the municipality of Punta Umbria). City Hall has determined that the beach will be divided into seven separate zones: La Canaleta-Ría, Albergue Juvenil-Avenida de Andalucía, Altavista-Pato Amarillo, Everluz-Puntamar, Los Enebrales, La Bota and El Portil. A separate flag will be placed in the Civil Protection checkpoints for these zones—in addition to the usual one with bathing suggestion—which will be raised when the beach capacity has been reached.
