With everyone waiting for the day to return to paradise, the Margaritaville brand—which encompasses Margaritaville hotels and resorts, vacation club properties under Wyndham, vacation home rentals, and restaurants—has rolled out enhanced health and sanitation standards, and has scheduled reopening properties in accordance with both state and local guidelines.
“Fostering a shared responsibility for the well- being of our staff, guests and community has been one of our guiding principles for the last 20 years. As we prepare to welcome visitors and team members back to our resorts, hotels and restaurants, we stand committed to our passion of creating and delivering fun and escapism, in a safe, comfortable environment,” shared John Cohlan, Chief Executive Officer, Margaritaville.
All Margaritaville properties have received comprehensive health and sanitation guidelines and are required to complete a 172-point verification process prior to reopening, which includes brand health training for all management and staff returning to work.
The following brand standards were carefully developed based on guidance from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), World Health Organization (WHO), Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the National Restaurant Association (NRA) and American Hotel and Lodging Association (AHLA).
Social Distancing – As always, guests are encouraged to enjoy the many beautiful outdoor areas each Margaritaville resort offers, whether it’s in the mountains, poolside, or waterfront. Additional outdoor seating has also been added to restaurants, while indoor seating has been reconfigured to promote proper social distancing.
Cleanliness & Food Safety – Every Margaritaville hotel and resort property is required to post their new health and safety standards on their respective websites. All brand restaurants will clean, disinfect, and sanitize using COVID-19 approved products, kitchens will receive a daily deep clean, common area surfaces will be disinfected after each use, and all food and beverage are now handled by staff to ensure a consistent germ-free environment.
Dedicated Health & Sanitation Leads – Each Margaritaville property has a designated Health & Sanitation Lead, responsible for implementing and enforcing standards across all latitudes.
Commitment to our Team Members – Every employee will receive a wellness check when coming into work each day, and will be provided with the appropriate safety gear needed. Any team member showing symptoms of COVID-19 will be sent home and welcomed back when it is safe for them to return, as deemed by a medical professional.
