Due to the spread of Covid-19 worldwide we are getting ready to offer you, once you are back, the highest guarantees of health and comfort. Thus, we are implementing new security measures in all our facilities, that remain closed at the moment, making sure they will be fully operational by the time all our hotels are opened.
