- Clean and Safe
B&B Algarve Cas al Cubo
Clean and Safe at B&B Cas al Cubo. 2020 Will forever be famous for its Covid pandemic. Discussions about what is safe and necessary flare up in mid-May, when the people of the various European countries are getting fed up with being held in lockdown. In the course of the season, we expect tourism to get started again little by little and we have prepared for that. .
Portugal, and specifically the Portuguese Algarve, is currently one of the locations, least affected by the Covid virus. This is reason enough for the Portuguese government to reopen restaurants, beaches and attractions under strict safety regulations. We will inform you about the measures that are still in force at the time of your visit to the Algarve, when you arrive at the B&B.
Safe and Clean
In Portugal, the government and the National Tourist Board have put together a package of measures to assure your stay in all holiday destinations to be safe and responsible. We have naturally committed ourselves to this label and we have implemented the recommended measures. Those measures determine:
Cleaning the hands with a disinfectant hand gel (ready in the hall) every time you enter the B&B. The disinfectant can be found in the hall opposite the front door. For your safety, when we are in contact with our guests, we wear a mouth mask and we use gloves while preparing and serving your breakfast. You will also find a new mouth mask in your room. Since wearing a mouth mask in supermarkets and while moving through restaurants (not while you are seated!!), we provide you with one .
Social distancing - 2 meters in Portugal
The common areas in our Bed and Breakfast are wide. In addition, there are two exits to and from the pool terrace. In the B&B we have created a sensible walking direction, so that our guests do not have to pass each other within 2 meters. We explain the routine as soon as you enter. The direction is not indicated on the floor; you are staying at our B&B for a relaxing holiday and we do not wish to turn it into military barracks. We count on your cooperation.
According to the guidelines of Clean and Safe, the shared spaces are stripped of all unnecessary attributes. All surfaces and door handles will be cleaned several times daily with a disinfectant. .
The advice from the government prescribes that the extensive shared breakfast as we always served it, should be arranged in a somewhat different way. This means that we set the table per booking at the moment you come down to enjoy your breakfast. With a menu you can indicate a day in advance which contents your breakfast should have. We prepare the breakfasts separately for the different rooms/bookings. Breakfast is therefore personally composed and served for you. This way we don't have to throw away large amounts of food. Perhaps it becomes necessary, with full occupancy, that we agree a time slot with you to have breakfast.
As food-lovers, we can give you excellent advice where you can eat a delicious, cozy and safe meal in a restaurant. We know the restaurants with an outdoor terrace and excellent cuisine and of course we reserve your table for you. If you do not want to go out, at a small fee, we offer some simple dishes that we can serve at 19:30. These dishes can be ordered before 12:00 in the morning of the same day. This way you can stay near the pool or eat on your own private terrace.
Apart from yourself, your room will only be entered by Verónica. She is officially responsible for cleaning. We have always organised our cleaning, based on a to-do list and new tasks have already been added for each room, so we do not need to change that. What we have adjusted is the products with which we clean. That is now a Dettol-based disinfectant cleaner. Verónica wears gloves and a mask during her cleaning job and your bedding is fluttered as little as possible for the safety of our colleague; we only straighten your bed.
Due to the safe distance between our guests, we can only allow one party / booking in the pool at a time. The maximum continuous use time of the bath is one hour. Of course, this rule expires when you are the only one on the terrace and you want to use the pool. We recommend using your own towel on the sun loungers. After use, the chairs are cleaned with a disinfectant, so that the next guest can sit safely again. The chairs around the pool and on the terrace have been given a permanent place so that the 2 meters distance between our guests is guaranteed.
