Yes, you will definitely get free-time, however you are not guaranteed any holidays during your placement period. Should you need time away from the placement then you can request this from your manager. All time off should be requested when the hotel/resort is quiet, i.e. during the off season and not during the weekends or public holidays. Remember, the holiday times are the busy times in hotels and resort communities. More information will be covered in your personal employment contract with your employer.
