CLIENTS at Benidorm’s Hotel Poseidon can watch their weight despite being on holiday. All the food in the hotel buffet is labelled with its nutritional values, and that includes calories.
The Poseidon is the first hotel in Spain to take this step. The innovation was presented to the public by Antonio Mayor, president of the Hosbec hoteliers’ association and Manuel Llombart, who heads the regional government’s Health department.
The idea has been introduced at the Poseidon as a pilot scheme although it could eventually be adopted by others of the 161 hotels belonging to Hosbec.
The multi-language labelling on the buffet food also gives information regarding suitability for those with coeliac disease, dietary allergies or hypertension.
