When is the hotel going to be reopened?
Playitas Resort reopened on October 17th 2020.
What do I need to know before traveling to Playitas?
From November 13th you will need a negative COVID-19 test that is not older than 72 hours. You will need the test in printed or digital form at the check-in at the hotel, not at the airport. In case you do not have a test result with you we can offer you a test at the hotel. Until the results are available (up to 24 hours), you will have to stay in your hotel room.
If you have your COVID-19 rest result in digital format, you can speed up the check-in process by sending it before arrival to firstname.lastname@example.org, indicating in the subject your reservation number and arrival date.
