Since its opening in June, VILA VITA Parc has reinforced its promise to maintain its usual highest standards of quality, with the well-being of its guests, employees and community as a maximum priority. In order to maintain this, the resort carefully elaborated and implemented a rigorous internal charter of good measures of hygiene and safety.

Since then, it has been updated with the recommendations of the national and international authorities, especially of the General Directorate of Health (DGS), and includes a contingency plan that is applied according to the evolution of the pandemic in the country, so that the guests’ experience at VILA VITA Parc can be enjoyed as much as possible, with the usual highest standards of service.
