Resort Safety

We are closely following recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and World Health Organization (WHO), and are taking precautions to protect the health and well-being of everyone at our resorts, including:

  • Undergoing enhanced cleanings at the resorts, with a special focus on public areas and the accommodations
  • Increasing the frequency of cleanings, especially on frequently touched surfaces, such as doors, counter tops and furniture
  • Providing additional trainings for team members on washing and sanitation techniques
  • Using recommended disinfectant cleaning wipes at the check-in areas
  • Offering additional hand sanitizing gels around the resorts

Reservation Options

We have temporarily adjusted our cancellation policies to waive all fees and penalties for members, owners and guests scheduled to arrive at any Diamond Resorts managed property before May 22, 2020, up to 24 hours before your scheduled arrival.

Additionally, we understand the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted many of our Club members and are temporarily adjusting The Club cancellation policy to provide members the ability to cancel reservations at any Diamond Resorts managed property up to 15 days before their scheduled arrival without penalty through September 1, 2020. We will continue to evaluate this policy and adjust as necessary as the situation evolves. If Members choose to cancel a reservation, your points will be released back to your account.

While we are dedicated to assisting all members, owners and guests as quickly as possible, all of our call centers are experiencing unusually long hold times.

Guests who booked through an online travel agent or other third party, such as Booking.com, should contact their booking provider for information on their policies and for assistance.

If you have questions about a reservation for after May 22, 2020, we recommend calling back closer to your arrival date.

Following guidance from health officials, we are rescheduling an Events of a Lifetime® member cruise and have postponed several Diamond Live shows to protect our artists, members and guests.
