COVID-19 Safety Measures & Responses
Guest Safety in the Algarve – FAQs
The safety of staff and guests is of paramount importance to both our hotel, and the JJW Group. To this end we have set up a COVID-19 taskforce to implement a range of new safety policies and procedures, in order to provide the safest possible surroundings for guests, golfers and our hotel family.
These policies have been based on the official local, national and international guidelines. Our taskforce has ensured that all of our new policies take these guidelines further, to deliver safety initiatives that go above and beyond industry standards – to deliver the safest environment possible.
All staff have undergone rigorous training procedures to ensure the hotel is prepared to welcome our guests to safe, luxury surroundings; and our taskforce and cleaning teams are working around the clock to keep all areas of the hotel safe and secure.
From 1st October 2021, Guests will no longer need to present a vaccination certificate or proof of a negative test on check-in. At this time the wearing of masks will no longer be compulsory inside the hotel or in our clubhouses. There will also be no limits on restaurant seating for inside and outside dining.
