BBDs 18.65 for 2 banks at Divi Beach Bar.

Hi all. Just to warn you good folks that we have just called into the Divi beach bar at the far end of Dover Beach just past Southern Palms. Two bottles of. Banks beer came to an eye watering BBDs 18.65 including sales tax and service charge. What a con . AVOID.

A very unhappy hour Almatt. Brett would have blown a fuse. Ah well. Lesson learned. It makes the Hilton look cheap.

Prices vary enormously. Average price for two lagers in a South Yorkshire Pub (self service) and no ocean view BDS$13.14 including tax.

There are several other places on the island where two Banks will cost more than that for sure!

Sunworshiper76,

With the greatest respect you are NOT comparing like for like.

Divi is a 3-star hotel with ALL the costs that go with it.

Go into a 3 star hotel in South Yorkshire and of course you would pay more.

I am always amazed by when people expect things to be cheaper here, when we are an isolated island that has to import nearly 80 per cent of what we (and our visitors) consume, often at a minimum shipping distance of nearly 4,000 miles.

They are only six each in Ocean Two. And two happy hours a day.

They are charging imported prices.

I don't expect things to be cheaper in Barbados than in Yorkshire (overall we find it similar, give or take) but that seems a lot for a couple of Banks on Dover Beach, comparing like with like eg Southern Palms bar.
