Puerto Rico’s Verdanza to Reopen in October

As Puerto Rico works to recover from the devastation of Hurricane Maria, one hotel on the island has already announced its reopening date.

The Verdanza Hotel, a member of Preferred Hotels and Resorts’ Lifestyle Collection, said it suffered “no significant structural damage,” with impact limited mainly to water and landscaping.

The property has not lost water service, while a generator is providing power for all hotel operations.

As such, the Verdanza has announced plans to reopen its doors for visitors starting Oct. 15.

“Our thoughts are with everyone affected by the passing of Hurricane Maria,” said Ricky Newman, general manager. Newman explained that Verdanza Hotel is operational; however, the property is currently serving as a home base for first responders and representatives from the local and federal agencies working on recovery efforts. “As always, we stand in solidarity with our community, committed to once again play a part in the recuperation and rebuilding of Puerto Rico.”

The property’s Hurricane Policy is now in place for those whose vacation at Verdanza has been disrupted by the hurricane. Reservations for stays before October 15th may be rescheduled or cancelled without penalty.
