Staying in a house near this cute hotel. Decided to stop in for their 2x1 happy hour today. We were the ONLY people in the bar (it's off season) and we were served by one guy~~that guy left~~and a very nice guy named Martin served us our second beer. We chatted with him and he was very nice. When we asked for the bill he had to go to the front desk to get it and when he came back the price was 10 pesos more per beer than listed on the menu. Now, I get it, it's 30 pesos but the point is they thought they could charge us a different price because we were gringos.
When I asked Martin why it was 40 pesos per drink instead of the 30 pesos on the menu he went back and asked came back and told us that we were served 'cans' of beer instead of 'bottles' of beer and that was the reason for the increase in price. I don't know what turnip truck they think we fell off of....but everywhere in the world a bottle of beer is more than a can of beer. And, besides, we were never offered anything but the cans.
I have to say we enjoyed the place, the hang and even chatting with Martin....but I don't appreciate someone trying to get their bus fare home on my expense.
I told Martin that I knew they were screwing us~~but also told him I knew it wasn't him. I gave Martin a 50 peso tip (on a 120 peso bill) and told him I would ONLY leave a tip if HE was going to get to keep it. If he was going to have to share it with anyone that was screwing us then I wouldn't leave a tip. I told him to tell his bosses that we knew what was up.......
How do they know that the next time I am in PV that I wouldn't have stayed there or dined in their restaurant or bar? Now they know for sure that I will not. I hope they enjoyed the 30 extra pesos they got tonight.
