Holidaying in the Algarve and Covid: your safety is our priority

Covid is here to stay, which is why GSC Hotels has adapted to the new “normal”, taking the steps necessary to ensure your holidays in the Algarve are safer than ever. Find out more about the measures we’re taking.

While we may still be able to catch the next plane out to any European destination, the truth is that not many of us feel safe enough to do so. That’s why GSC Hotels has made sure to increase the safety and hygiene measures we implement so that you don’t miss out on your holidays to the Algarve.

We know that these are very uncertain times, so we want to assure you that every condition possible is in place, allowing you to get away for a few days of rest that are, above all, safe.

The Portuguese are avoiding holidaying outside of Portugal, choosing a “staycation” down South this year, due to the excellent conditions they find down here. And we’re not only talking about the good year-round weather. Another factor that puts the Algarve on many tourists’ must-visit lists is our excellent cuisine.

Now, if we’re so sought after by so many, wouldn’t you expect the Algarve to tick a lot of your boxes as the perfect holiday destination? Get packing for a well-deserved break in the Algarve. The rest? Leave it to us.

Holidays in the Algarve during Covid: dos and don’ts

We provide disinfection stations in designated areas within all accommodation provided by GSC Hotels, so that our guests can ensure their hands are disinfected at all times.

Though we have implemented every measure recommended by the Directorate-General of Health of Portugal, each guest must do everything they can to keep themselves safe, which means following the safety measures applied within our hotels when outside them too.

When seated in outdoor seating areas of bars and restaurants – as well as on the beach – guests should always wear a mask (especially when travelling) and disinfect their hands regularly.

By maintaining these good practices, you ensure you are both protecting yourself and those around you. Now all you need to do is pick your spot in the sun.
