How can you help us?

  • Please make a rational use of water. Immediately inform the Reception if you find a leaking tap or any other water leak.
  • Please help us to maintain our green and outdoor spaces clean.
  • If your towel is still clean, hang it (this means that you do not need it changed)
  • Use the pool towel as many times as possible. Changing your pool towel has an extra cost.
  • When leaving the room, remove your key from the power adaptor by the door.
  • Avoid leaving connected or in stand by any electrical equipment that you are no longer using.
  • Turn of the lights if you don’t need them.
  • Do not use the laundry service more than you need.
  • Avoid setting your air conditioning machine to very high or very low temperatures.
