Secondary data were gotten from articles, journals, books, websites etc.

CONCLUSION:

We observed that customer care is being implemented at Labadi Beach Hotel in order to create a positive customer experiences. This is done through the recruitment of qualified employees and conduction of training programs. In addition, Labadi Beach Hotel has developed a service oriented internal process through the use of procedures. Moreover new recruits are retained upon successfully passing an appraisal report. This has actually resulted in friendly and courteous attitudes of its employees towards hotel guest. Furthermore, Labadi Beach Hotel has internal complaint system to check service failures.

Lastly, customer complaints received were embodied around Availability, Tangibles, Reliability, Responsiveness, and Empathy. It must however be noted that despite the guest complaints received, the aspect of positive customer experience in each of the dimensions above outnumbers the complaints. In spite of what Labadi Beach Hotel is doing to improve customer care, suggested measures were recommended to help them further improve upon customer care.
