  1. That is so cool !
    I had the honor to work with Mr.Headley and it was a very inspiring and exciting tenure..
    Congratulations are in order
    I have no doubt that you will do an excellent job

  2. Hedley started here in Antigua as GM for Carlile Bay Hotel, then after a year or two if that much he moved to Jumby Bay, where he stayed for another year or two. Then he moved to St. Vincent and the Grenadines to manage a resort there. That also didn’t last long, and he came back to Antigua and was embraced to run Mill Reef Club. Also, for about two years. And now he is embraced by Hodges Bar Resort.

    • I hope he doesn’t f*ck it up …..Hodges Bay Club is not a place for him anyway good luck!!

      • what is there to f up at Hodges Bay club. Given his credentials, I hope he will be able to transform it into what it was mean to be.

    • So what turns on that? How did that Resort own Prickly Pear Island? Did they purchase it,if so when?

  3. Congratulations Mr. Hedley on your new venture. I know that you will do an exceptional job. All the best.

  4. You wanna run with the big boys, huh
    Best wishes; congrats too I suppose. Antigua’s tourism industry is not what it used to be

  5. I don’t know this gentleman but congratulations are in order and I hope he can turn the resort into a successful resort and better pay salaries and wages, good customer service and hospitality training for the employees there. Wishing him success in his new assignment.
