Hotel Information

For more information on Marriott's Commitment to Cleanliness, please visit our corporate site.
The safety of our guests and associates is a top priority. As guidance regarding face coverings and vaccination verification varies by local jurisdiction and may change, guests should review public information websites for the most up-to-date guidance for your destination, as well as the hotel-specific sections below and US and Canada Travel Advisories | Marriott Bonvoy™ before traveling. Unless it is required by local law or order, fully vaccinated guests are no longer required to wear face coverings or social distance in indoor or outdoor areas of the hotel. We ask that all unvaccinated guests continue to wear face coverings and practice social distancing when they are in public spaces inside the hotel.

The resort has implemented several procedures to protect the well-being of each guest and our Ladies and Gentlemen. These measures include:


  • Arrival queues throughout resort clearly marked for appropriate social distancing.
  • Disposable face masks and sanitizing wipes offered upon check-in at the Front Desk.
  • Seating in restaurants, lounges, pools and beach are spaced apart in accordance with state laws.
  • Guest elevator occupancy is limited to family members or two non-family individuals.
  • Stairwell access is available for all four floors.
  • Signage posted to remind guests of social distancing guidelines and hygiene practices to prevent the spread of disease.
  • Using mobile technology: eFolio delivery for contactless checkout

Housekeeping Service:

Every guest room is thoroughly cleaned and disinfected between each guest. We will continue to provide housekeeping services daily while you are away from the room. If you have any specific housekeeping preferences or would like to not receive housekeeping service during your stay, please contact the front desk at any time.

We have made several enhancements to our cleaning practices throughout our resort and in guest rooms. These include:

Enhanced Public Space Cleaning: We have increased the frequency of cleaning and disinfection in high traffic areas including restrooms, elevators, and door handles as well as touchless hand sanitizing stations throughout the hotel.

Our Ladies and Gentlemen are equipped with personal protective equipment including face coverings required at all times, a temperature screening upon arrival for each shift, and continuous training on COVID-19 protocols.

Guest Rooms

  • Housekeeping services will be performed when guests are not present in the room.
  • Deep cleaning of high-touch items such as handles, knobs, drawer pulls, hairdryer and remote controls.
  • Removal of decorative pillows and throws.
  • All glassware has been replaced with single-use cups.
  • Disinfectant wipes will be added to each room for personal use.
