Our Sandyport Commitment to Cleanliness:
We have always taken our standards for hygiene and cleanliness very seriously.

In light of the recent Coronavirus pandemic we have further enhanced our protocols with the latest guidance on hygiene and cleaning. Our approved Clean and Pristine Health & Safety plan meets or exceeds the guidelines and recommendations from the CDC, WHO and the Bahamas Ministry of Health. We are paying attention to everything from handwashing hygiene to cleaning product specifications recommended by the EPA and procedures in guest rooms, suites, and common areas.

The health and safety of our guests and staff is our highest priority. During times of uncertainty, we hope to provide some assurance about our procedures and precautions, as well as the unique design elements that support social distancing at Sandyport Beach Resort.
