The Bentley South Beach
Security & Safety Policy
The aim of the safety and security policy is to create a safe environment and to establish guidelines for addressing situations that arise.
Guest Rules & Regulations
The Bentley South Beach is a 100% smoke-free hotel and smoking is not permitted anywhere within the property. This include common-areas, courtyard and pool deck. Smoking in guest rooms will result in a fee. Guests are encouraged to notify Front Desk staff immediately if they smell cigarette, marijuana, or other objectionable odors. This policy is not intended to stop people from smoking, but to regulate where they smoke and how it affects others. A Designated Smoking Area is provided outside and away from the building. Marijuana is prohibited at all times.
Our pool hours are from sunrise to sunset. No lifeguard on duty, swim at your own risk.
Anyone accessing the lobby at 8pm will be asked to show their room key or ID. Access will be denied to any unaccompanied non-registered guest.
For the safety of our guests, additional visitors above the occupancy limits of the room are not allowed on the property.
