Barceló Hotel Group’s health and safety concept

Specific audits will be carried out to check the new measures before the hotels open, and our standard audits will be reinforced and regularly checked by our partners:
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 two 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 prior 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 beaches extend over an area of around 14 kilometres from La Canaleta to El Portil. From Monday 15 June, they have been divided into zones as a safety measure to control capacity, which is established at 108,032 beachgoers during high tide (there are 15,000 residents in the municipality of Punta Umbria). The City Council has specified that the beach will be divided into seven different zones: La Canaleta-Ría, Albergue Juvenil-Avenida de Andalucía, Altavista-Pato Amarillo, Everluz-Puntamar, Los Enebrales, La Bota and El Portil. In addition to the usual beach safety flags, a separate flag will be placed at the Civil Protection checkpoints in these zones, which will be raised when the beach capacity has been reached.
