First of all, the Grand Lifestyle is still on and oh yeah… we will keep celebrating it!
… just with some small adjustment.
Preparing our Grand Dame for their re-opening with almost daily changes of do´s and don’ts in these strange times is not easy, but how goes the saying “What doesn´t kill us makes us stronger”!
There for we applied for the “Clean & Safe” certificate from our Portuguese Tourism Office to ensure you an environment up to the highest standards you deserve and the moment you arrive we will take care of you as “Mi casa es tu casa”.
We provide you with some protection gadgets for your vacation runway and if necessary, even measure your body temperature to ensure that nobody is boiling up before Cocktail hour starts, but hey, that´s already another chapter on your Grand journey with us….
Below we put some notes and info’s for you together which you might appreciate and had already made up in your mind to ask us about them
Portugal dealing with Covid 19
More preparation time and people obeying confinement measures has helped Portugal manage its coronavirus outbreak. In fact, Portugal did a great job in dealing with Covid 19.
The current numbers you can see here:
So far there are no information´s that tourists and residence which arrive to Portugal shall go into quarantine but please check with your home country on travel restrictions as our boarders are still closed till 14th of May.
Face masks are suggested to use when you go out on the street but mandatory if you wish to enter any store, supermarket, public transportation etc.
At the moment only small stores until 200qm are open with limited access and a distance with 2m between people who are not living in the same household is to be respected. From the 18th of May it is forecasted to open as well restaurant and coffee shops but only with a 50% occupancy as well as larger stores until 400qm. On 1st of June we are hoping to go back to “normal” with the reopening of locations bigger than 400qm.
Beaches at the moment are still restricted to practice water sports only so sunbathing is still not allowed. Our government will come up as soon as possible with respective rules to do so.
Grand House - Situation in general
As everybody is talking about Covid19 right now, we have a specific training for all our staff members in the pipeline regarding this topic to be ready to welcome you.
A specially prepared quarantine room for isolation is already in place, and a responsible staff member is always on duty to ensure that the right procedures & our internal protocol are followed.
Physical and personal distance is encouraged especially in the elevator and staircases at all-time but please do not yell at each other just because of it.
Our ladies from housekeeping are doing a great job each day to keep everything top notch, also placing hand sanitizers at strategic points all over our venues- so please feel free to use them. No worries… we got more!
Entrance to our public areas in the hotel and restaurants is only permitted to inhouse guests or clients with reservations to secure a safe environment for our guests. Keep in mind we are just a phone call away.
Regarding your arrival
You don´t need to be scared by seeing staff wearing face masks but it´s kind of a thing right now you know…we will smile with our eyes!
Valet parking maintains as one of the Grand House services but if you prefer, we direct you into our reserved parking lots.
A warm & gentle welcome to our only 28 room Mansion by our Staff is still Grand, even by keeping a little bit more distance as usual.
Gloves can be used to carry your bags & belongings up to your room avoiding direct contact or during other necessary situations.
Your home for the next days, as we call it, was perfectly disinfected, cleaned up to the latest Haccp standards and floated with fresh air through our windows which can be opened at all times so that we are prepared for your arrival.
Let´s celebrate life with food, drinks and Grand vibes
We set up a more romantic atmosphere for your convenience by reducing the maximum capacity by 50% of our restaurants and guaranteeing a 2m space between each table – As well as a limited number of guests at them.
Here as well you will find Staff wearing face masks and gloves… it´s for your and their “protection” as nobody is there to rob you…
Start your day in Grand Style enjoying breakfast in bed / in your suite or at our Grand Salon overlooking the Marina and Spanish coast. As we got away from the Breakfast buffet for now choose “A la carte” your preferred dishes to boost your energy level.
Our Grand Beach Club welcomes you all day long for soaking up some sun, sipping cocktails & enjoying amazing food with some eclectic vibes in the background… but also good things come to an end and as we aren´t allowed to dance & celebrate “All night long” yet the Grand Beach Club closes at 23h to be ready for the next day.
The Grand Salon will offer a reduced room service menu and on specific days our talented chefs prepare a delicious local sourced, seasonal & sustainable menu.
Experiences & Activities
The Grand Lifestyle is still out there! Get amazed by our surroundings and personalized experiences designed especially for you without worrying about physical distancing.

Oh…there is still one bad news, unfortunately not a fake news… – Spa treatments at the moment aren´t possible due to required distance between each other but we are more than happy to provide you with some Massage oil for some togetherness.
