Caribbean Hotel Services is a small company recently formed in the UK to provide online marketing and distribution services to UK based tour operators.

About CHS (Caribbean Hotel Services)

We provide staff recruitment and short term training needs both on the island and product knowledge training to UK based tour operators. With most of the resorts located in small island communities with limited skill set it is difficult to be as market competitive.

In the past it was relatively straightforward working with tour operators and paying a fee to be featured by them. Today with the advent of the online giants such as Google, Expedia and Booking.com and the desire of many guests wishing to book their stays directly online without having to go through these third party channels has opened up new opportunities.

Guests know they’re usually able to get a better price by booking directly on the hotel’s website and the hotel has better margins due to no third party booking fees. However due to the limited available skills on these islands the small independent hotels are very much at a disadvantage to the larger chains to take advantage of these opportunities. On many of these islands there are often quite strict work permit rules, red tape and not to mention the not always guaranteed wifi.
