In this aspect, Berrio stressed that ‘Dominican Republic is a country aware of quality, therefore, Hotels are increasingly committed to strengthening its Safety & Hygiene departments, as a differential factor from other tourist destinations that are not so safe from the hygienic and sanitary point of view. From HS Consulting we work together with Hotels that care about quality, offering continuous training, an internal audits program and food, surface and drinking water control analytics, to verify that all handling and prevention processes are carried out correctly.’
