Cap Juluca ended its 2011-2012 season with a series of staff appreciation activities, culminating with a grand Juluca Beach nik on Monday, 20th August. The 95 room resort which prides itself as being the leader in staff appreciation, training and development, treated its staff to a sumptuous buffet lunch prepared by the Executive Chef Johnny Clero and his team, which included Executive Sous Chef and Manager of the Anguilla National Culinary Team, Dean Samuel and Caribbean Gold Medal winner, Chef Justin Hughes.  Staff enjoyed an afternoon of music, dancing, water sports, swimming and other activities before proceeding on their annual vacation.
