Our organizer planned this group outing over a week prior to our attendance. She had received an email with the agreed price per person. I was surprised to see the guide speak rudely to the organizer. But then she's a petite woman and the guide was male.
At the end of our stay, she delivered payment and was told that based on a phone call the previous evening, the price per head had been changed.
Even though the organizer printed a copy of the email complete with price per head, the management insisted the phone call was more valid than the email.
I have had similar conversations with other hotel/ b&bs, drivers etc. I would not have expected this of a hotel like Leonia. They seemed to be positioning themselves as a 4-5 star resort.
Our group remained behind an hour longer than intended to avoid leaving the woman organizer alone to wrangle with management.
Some modern amenities + antiquated business style = must miss for now.
In a another year or two, it's possible that the business model will be less bait and switch.
