General manager of Hilton Barbados, George Stanfield, said it had become his tradition to do the treat for the guests.

“It’s been kind of my tradition in the past seven or eight years. Usually, the guests don’t understand it until we are in the pool. It just brings a little bit of excitement to the hotel. It’s been with me since the Hilton Cancun.

    Exploitation and slavery once again. I wonder how much extra money they were paid to get wet; a very idiotic idea. Shame on the workers for humiliating themselves like that; where is the union and human rights.
