The vaccination requirement is applicable to any person staying 1 night or more at any hotel in Puerto Rico. If by any reason the guest can not provide the vaccination card or proof of vaccination, the guest is required to provide evidence of a COVID-19 test taken within 72 hours of checking in. The negative result must be from a qualified SARS-CoV2 viral test; either a nucleic acid amplification test ("NAAT") or an antigen test. For any questions or exceptions, please contact us directly. The use of face masks is also required, regardless of vaccination status. We appreciate your cooperation.
