Almond Beach Village closed

(Barbados Nation) Almond Beach Village in St Peter is now officially closed for business.

Further to last month’s announcement by Neal & Massy of an April 30 shutdown, yesterday was the last day on the job for outgoing chief executive officer Ralph Taylor, who spent most of his time tying up loose ends and saying goodbye to several teary-eyed guests and staff.

The closure of the property proved especially trying for the hotel’s 500 members of staff, many of whom expressed uncertainty about the future and were still in the dark about their severance payments.

They also voiced strong concern that they could be required to report for work at the two remaining Almond properties.
