Our Commitment to Cleanliness:

We take standards for hygiene and cleanliness very seriously and are taking additional steps to ensure the safety of our guests and associates. On a daily basis, we are working to ensure that we meet the latest guidance on hygiene and cleaning. Prince Resort’s health and safety measures are designed to address a broad spectrum of viruses, including COVID-19, and include everything from handwashing hygiene and cleaning product specifications to guest room and common area cleaning procedures. Specific steps Prince Resort is taking include:

Associate Health, Safety and Knowledge

Prince Resort associates – and their own health, safety and knowledge – are essential to an effective cleaning program. Here are some ways we’re supporting them:

 

    • Hand Hygiene: Proper and frequent handwashing is vital to help combat the spread of viruses. In our daily meetings, our teams are reminded that cleanliness starts with this simple act. It’s important for their health and that of our guests.
    • Safety: All employees will wear a mask in public areas. We require all employees to get a temperature check each day before beginning their shift.
    • Ongoing Training: Training on housekeeping and hygiene protocols

 

Cleaning Products and Protocols:

Prince Resort uses EPA approved cleaning products and protocols which are effective against viruses, including:

    • Guest Rooms: Prince Resort uses cleaning and disinfecting protocols to clean rooms after guests depart and before the next guest arrives, with particular attention paid to high-touch items. Housekeeping will provide Door Service for trash / towels and in-room amenities as we are practicing social distancing for the safety of our guests and staff. Please place trash and towels outside your room and call the front desk for pick up.
    • Public Spaces: Prince Resort has increased the frequency of cleaning and disinfecting in public spaces, with a focus on the counter at the front desk, elevators and elevator buttons, door handles, public bathrooms and even room keys.
    • Resort Amenities: Access to certain amenities, including but not limited to our restaurants, pools and fitness center, may be limited or restricted in accordance with state or local government guidelines.
      • Our pools are open with the following guidelines in place:
        • 6 foot social distancing between families or social groups should be followed.
        • We are requesting guests limit usage of pool chairs to 2 hours for everyone's enjoyment.
      • The fitness center is open from 8AM - 8PM.
      • Boardwalk Beach Cafe is open with outdoor seating available.
      • 3500 Ocean Grill is open daily for breakfast from 7:30AM - 11:00AM and dinner on Wednesday through Saturday from 4PM-9PM. 
      • The Cherry Grove Pier is open for fishing and walking.
