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 well-being of our guests and Ladies and Gentlemen is of utmost importance. We remain committed to providing a clean and comfortable environment for all who visit our resort. We are taking steps to keep everyone healthy. Each operating department has its own customized set of procedures, even more detailed than the summary presented here. We will continue to refine and update our plans based on our State and CDC Guidelines. Please join us in our efforts to enhance the safety of our public areas by complying with local regulations including wearing a face covering and keeping a social distance of 6 feet from others.

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.
  • Valet using sanitizing wipes to clean vehicles after each use. 
  • Disposable face masks and sanitation wipes offered upon check-in at the Front Desk.
  • Mobile check-in, key, and service requests available through the Marriott Bonvoy™ mobile app for a contactless experience.
  • 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.

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.
