Reviewed 3 days ago via mobile. Food is great but service is poor. Reviewed 4 days ago via mobile. The story is told in the first person by the manager, who is running his own little kingdom — with worker riots, a promiscuous chef, no water and huts next to the power generator. This book shows the extremes of human behaviour — from extreme selfishness and stupidity to full-blown generosity. Light hearted and somewhat similar to Hotel Babylon, this was good escapist fare. It reminded me of resorts situated in isolated conditions and the fact that being unable to escape from paradise can be hell.
A fast read, but a good one.
I am a fan of the Babyon books. This one I did consider a bit less fun then the other that I have been reading.
But then I have never been at a beach resort and I have never mingled with the super rich. The thing is that Edward-Jones ones more manages to give you a very good insight of how things work back stage and that not everything is glamour and glitter. You might be after a job like one of them featured in this one but I do believe that after a few months you do long for so many ordinary t I am a fan of the Babyon books.
You might be after a job like one of them featured in this one but I do believe that after a few months you do long for so many ordinary things that you take day in day out for granted. I mean only being able to order from the room service must be sometimes tiring. Especially if they have run out of pink champagne and you long for a drive through Mc Donalds in a car and not a buggy. Entertaining read and very nice book to take along in your travel luggage. Well, if this isn't the perfect read for a holiday on the beach then I don't know what is.
Luckily I read the book really on a day we spent at the beach instead of at the pool.

It's a sometimes a bit embarrasing to read how outrageous some ppl can behave - especially when they are on holiday. Especially the Germans don't get off too well in this book. I don't know if I would like living on this island. I probably would be contended with books, movies and some friends to hang out with hey, that' Well, if this isn't the perfect read for a holiday on the beach then I don't know what is. I probably would be contended with books, movies and some friends to hang out with hey, that's my life as it is right now.
But I definitely wouldn't be patient enough to deal with spoiled ungrateful assholes of guests. So I probably wouldn't last a week there.
Dec 29, Danata rated it liked it. Since I was planning to work in the industry myself Well, now I am much less eager. The life of a luxury hotel manager can seem dreamy, but the reality hurts in a number of previously unimaginable ways. Dealing with people is a hard work, and this book truly illustrates this concept. It is good in it's own mann Since I was planning to work in the industry myself It is good in it's own manner, and it does a good job of illuminating at least some parts of the bitter truth behind the whole "luxury living" concept.
This was a very difficult to rate the book. I read it for a book club, it is not something I would ever usually pick up. Reading about resort hotels, money, alcohol and the rich and famous is not my usual genre.
There was no depth or real plot involved. However it did what it said on the tin. It was a very light, quick, simple read that I finished in about 3 days. It made a nice change from what I usually read and it was an eye opener into the industry, although I wasn't surprised by what I read This was a very difficult to rate the book. It made a nice change from what I usually read and it was an eye opener into the industry, although I wasn't surprised by what I read, maybe about some people's attitudes.
I do think it will generate lots of discuss at book group!! If you are looking for a trashy fix in a book, this is it. Beach Babylon tells the story of a general manager on a luxurious 6 star island resort and combines years of experience into one week for readers to understand what makes the uber rich an uber pain. Told with wit and frankly unbelievable stories, the book veers from boring to down right comical. I could feel the stress faced by the hotel manager while reading this. Good read as it gave me new perspective on hotel business.
This is Beach Blanket Babylon!
Looking forward to read other Babylon titles. Not as good as Hotel Babylon Maybe beacause I've stayed in a few luxury resorts I've seen a fair bit of it myself already. What i did find interesting was the sheer dullness of a tropical paradise for those who work there and although it pains me to say it One of the original collaborators of Beach Blanket Babylon, she also marketed, managed, directed, and performed in the original hit shows.
