Cobalt’s top priority is the health and safety of our attendees and staff. To ensure onsite safety for all, we will be following all current Mexico pandemic regulations as well as all AM Resorts Clean & Complete verification policies.
Mexico doesn't currently have any restrictions in place, however, masks are still required at the Cancun International Airport and in all restaurants when entering/exiting, or walking around the restaurant or at the buffet.
All bars and restaurants feature seating allowing for social distancing with tables and chairs sanitized daily and throughout the service period. Proper handwashing techniques are reviewed with food service staff at the start of every shift and increased signage is in place to reinforce those reviews.
Hand sanitizer is available at restaurant entrances, on bar tops and throughout the establishments. Bar snacks are presented in individual portions. Menu options are presented on boards or tablet QR codes and the use of physical menus is limited to those who request them. Tablecloths are changed after every use. After use, cutlery is cleaned, disinfected, and placed in a cover preventing contact with outside surfaces. Breadbaskets are no longer used with food being presented in individual portions. Chefs and servers are required to wear masks when preparing or serving food like teppanyaki or sushi in guest areas.
For buffet service, dishes are offered to guests by servers with masks, food tongs are changed every 20 minutes, and sneeze barriers are in place. Additionally, for those guests who prefer, a la carte menu options are available in all buffet restaurants.
Room service uses covered food dishes to ensure hygiene from the kitchen to the guest room, and all room service waiters wear gloves and masks for delivery. Room service waiters allow guests to set up their own dining area, unless requested otherwise.
