Stay safe with RIU

To help keep you safe throughout your stay, RIU Hotels & Resorts partnered with professional health and safety consultants to put together an extensive list of new protocols. Hotel occupancy has been reduced to a maximum of 60%, (or lower to meet local restrictions) and web check-in will be implemented where possible. Guests’ temperatures will be taken upon arrival and all employees will be wearing PPE and practicing physical distancing. All non-essential items will be removed from your room, surfaces will be frequently disinfected and hand sanitizer will be provided for every guest. In addition, restaurant capacity will be reduced and lounge chairs will be spaced out to promote physical distancing.

Now that you know how you can stay safe at RIU, check out some of our top resort picks for your next vacation.
