We are Committed to Cleanliness:
We take standards for hygiene and cleanliness very seriously and are
taking additional steps to ensure the safety of our guests and staff.
On a daily basis, Sandcastles is working to ensure that we meet the
latest guidance on hygiene and cleaning.
Our resorts’ health and safety measures are designed to address
a broad spectrum of viruses, including COVID-19, and include everything
from hand washing hygiene and cleaning product specifications to guest room
and common area cleaning procedures.
Staff Health, Safety and Knowledge:
Our staff knowledge of their own health and safety is essential to an
effective cleaning program. Here are some ways we’re supporting them:
• Hand Hygiene:
Proper and frequent hand washing is vital to help combat the spread of viruses.
We have hand sanitiser available at reception as well as other areas in our workplace.
• Ongoing Training:
We have updated our room and public area cleaning and hygiene protocols
around COVID-19 and provided these to all staff.
• Ongoing Updates:
Our management team are staying abreast of all available alerts and information
related to COVID-19 and providing regular updates to our staff and implementing
any relevant changes as required.
Cleaning Products and Protocols:
Our resort uses cleaning products and protocols which are effective against viruses, including:
• Guest Rooms:
We have implemented cleaning and disinfecting protocols to clean rooms after guests depart
and before the next guest arrives, with particular attention paid to high-touch items.
• Public Spaces:
We have increased the frequency of cleaning and disinfecting in public spaces, with a focus on the
counter at the front desk, stair railings, door handles, public bathrooms and even room keys.
• Back of House:
In the spaces where our staff work we have increased the frequency of cleaning and focusing
on high-touch areas like entrances, storage rooms and offices.
