A consortium of hotel ownership and management groups representing more than 50 properties and resorts in Punta Cana have come together to reaffirm their commitment to a set of security standards and safety guidelines by launching the ‘Punta Cana Promise’ initiative.
“Whether you’re traveling with family or adventuring with friends, you want to know that you and your loved ones are safe and secure, no matter how far from home you roam. In Punta Cana, we want to extend this promise”, states the initiative on its website.
“Speaking on behalf of our consortium of hotels, the Punta Cana Promise is our ongoing commitment to ensure that our guests will continue to receive the highest levels of service and security they have come to know and expect from us”, said Encarna Piñero, president of the Association of Foreign Investors (Inverotel).
The tourism executive added that “the Punta Cana area has been home to our families and our properties for generations, and we are all focused on doing what it takes to reassure travelers that Punta Cana is and will remain a safe and wonderful vacation destination for generations to come.”
The Punta Cana Promise is as follows:
Each of the eight points seeks to answer specific questions and to reaffirm traveler confidence following recent media coverage of events on the island.
While the policies outlined in the Punta Cana Promise are certainly not new to the hotels – the safety guidelines outlined above have been in place for years, according to the Consortium of Punta Cana Hotels – the creation of the Promise marks the first time these hotels have worked together to create such a comprehensive resource in one easy-to-access format.
In addition, Dominican Republic Minister of Tourism Francisco Javier Garcia said earlier this year that the country was in the process of updating and reinforcing its tourist safety measures.
The following hotels are each committed to fulfilling the Punta Cana Promise, a safety pledge detailing what policies, safety guidelines, and security measures can be expected at each and every property to ensure the highest levels of safety and service are not just met, but exceeded.
Participating hotels, all of which are listed on www.puntacanapromise.com, will display the Punta Cana Promise seal on their properties and their websites, indicating their participation and commitment to the Promise.
