EXPECT a great 2016.

This was the prediction of George Stanfield, general manager of Hilton Barbados when he spoke at the hotel’s “Chefs in the Pool” event where guests were served from the water yesterday.

“We have been really blessed this year with great arrivals. The country has been doing a great job on airlift which has helped us to be successful and benefit from the airlift. Everyone from the tourism and private sectors has helped to see this which comes with great staff and morale,” said Stanfield, who is in his third year at the hotel.

“These past two years have been incrementing year after year and we expect a great 2016 as well going forward . . . the team has done a great job thinking outside the box. Every nook and cranny that has been available to pursue new business they have gone into. Outside of the country and the Barbados Hotel and Toursim Authority and [BTMI] doing an outstanding job of bringing airlift and business to the island, the team has done the second part in finding that business.”
