High-end target

Doyle, owner of the luxury Crane Hotel in St Philip, said the island should push for high-spending tourists, particularly during this recessionary period when foreign exchange was at a premium.

Furthermore, he charged that all-inclusives could represent a race to the bottom in terms of room rates, and more of those hotels could damage the Barbados brand’s exclusivity.

Almond Beach Village is an all-inclusive operation.

Doyle, however, told Barbados business authority that his comments were not an indictment of another competitor for Almond – Jamaican Gordon “Butch” Stewart, who runs one of the Caribbean’s most successful all-inclusive operations.
