Are guests and visitors safe while using Cactus Coffee & Goodies store services?
Yes, we can ensure you of that. All employees have been advised to follow practical flu-preventing procedures, including wearing protecting equipment, staying home when they feel ill, washing hands frequently with soap water for at least 20 seconds and avoiding close contact with others who are under the weather. As far as the interior area is concerned, it was renovated this year with brand new kitchen equipment, helping to ensure your safety.
In case you feel more comfortable in your own space (room, beach etc.), we offer you the option to take away your coffee/drinks and breakfast/snacks using ecofriendly packaging. Furthermore, towels and eating utensils (plates, cups, forks etc.) are frequently washed, even when not used. Last but not least, we frequently check the temperature and dose of professional soap used in the dish washer, in order to ensure necessary decontamination.
Do you have a plan in the event of a confirmed case at the hotel?
Yes, we have developed an in-depth operating procedure that has been shared with all team members to ensure a swift response to suspected or confirmed cases of COVID-19.
