For the first time in the island’s history, 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 in one of the top travel destinations in the Dominican Republic.
The eight-point Punta Cana Promise, as well as information about participating hotels, is detailed on puntacanapromise.com, which launched Tuesday, December 3.
The Punta Cana Promise points:
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 – 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.
Says Encarna Piñero, President of Inverotel, “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. 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.”
Participating hotels, all of which are listed on puntacanapromise.com, will proudly display the Punta Cana Promise seal on their properties and their websites indicating their participation and commitment to the Promise.
