At Hotel Dom Fernando we take both safety and well-being very seriously and, above all, we take the health of our guests and staff as our priority.
Our contingency plan has been active since January, and has always been kept updated according to the latest legislation and directions provided by the health authorities and, thanks to the understanding and cooperation from our guests, we have been complemented by those same authorities that consider our hotel as a very low contagion risk place and, therefore we were granted the “CLEAN & SAFE” seal by Turismo de Portugal on the very first day it was made available.
We would like to remember the fact that we kept our biggest hotel open during such a troubled time for our operation, and the generalized feeling among our staff is one of a strong motivation and pride for being able to accomplish our social mission to provide a much needed support to the community, from the health department to the business area that had to remain active during the confinement period.
Since the beginning of June, we have entered in a new stage of our contingency plan. In order to guarantee the maximum comfort possible to all the guests that may want to visit us, a series of new arrangements adequate to this specific situation we are living were made. Like we have been doing until this point, we will continue to adjust our policies as much and as many times it is needed in order to keep guaranteeing that comfort, sometimes without the possibility to inform our guests in advance, for which we very much appreciate the understanding and cooperation of everyone.
