In each lobby we have a thermographic camera which takes the temperature of each person at the entrance. The supervisor must be vigilant of the computer linked to this camera and to follow up any high temperature that may be detected.

We avoid the use of card keys and in it is place we implement an electronic system through smartphone (If the guest has one), with which the guest can access the condominium.
In case the guest is not wearing a face mask, the receptionist will hand over a basic PPE kit and general recommendations.

We implement the use the technology to facilitate the Check in process, (Pre Check In) using Las Palomas App, as well as promoting payment with card, bank transfer and any other electronic ContactLess payment method to reduce as much as we can the use of cash.

Payment terminal and scanners are on the desk in front of our guest, this way the receptionist does not have to touch the cards.

There is a pen holder in each station of both lobbies for the sole use of the guest. Each pen is disinfected after every use, with a sanitizing towel or cloth with sodium hypochlorite at 0.5%.
