SCORPION BAY HOTEL RESERVATION POLICIES (related to COVID-19)
Due to COVID-19, the reservation policies of the Hotel have been revised and are subject to change without notice based on government or travel restrictions, guidelines, laws, recommendations, et al. that are out of the Hotel’s control. If the result is the closure of the Hotel or travel is limited in any way, the following will be done automatically: the reservation will be cancelled, a notification email will be sent to the guest, and a credit will be issued for the full amount to be applied towards room rates at the Hotel within two years of the reservation date. Therefore, it is recommended that the guest and the guest’s party read the Hotel’s reservation policies in advance of their reservation as cooperation with the new health protocols is mandatory.
We call it “COVID Clean Cooperation” because it will take our Hotel staff’s and our guests’ cooperation to ensure everyone’s health and safety during these COVID-19 times. Our staff promises to follow the health guidelines and sanitize the Hotel and we hope that our guests can promise to follow the health guidelines as well and complete some mandatory health protocols required of hoteliers by the Mexican government.
In order to enter the Hotel, every guest must:
Clean their hands.
Provide their identification and their personal information.
Take their temperature.
If the temperature is 37.3° C (or 99.14° F) or less, the guest may enter the office to complete their check-in or the Hotel’s premises.
If it is 37.4° C (or 99.32° F) or over, the guest will be asked to exit the Hotel and go to our temporary quarantine zone. There they will complete an online questionnaire provided by the Mexican government. If it deems the guest suspicious, the local doctor will be called to conduct an evaluation. If they confirm suspicion of COVID-19, the guest will be taken to a hospital in Constitución in an ambulance. Medical costs will be the responsibility of the guest and the reservation at the Hotel will be forfeited.
Please note that steps 1 and 3 will be required prior to entering the Hotel every time.
