today we ate at the restaurant where we have enjoyed many good times but today we asked for the wine list and ordered a wine only to be told that a "new wine list" was active and we should consult the new list. Surprisingly the prices were circa 80% higher ( yes quite incredible) but, we were in party mod so ordered wine regardless. When the bill came they had added $10 for corkage !!! There was no mention of corkage on the win list. Why?? Because now there is a wine shop called Vinoteca in the hotel and the wine list from this shop is pushed to the customers with no mention of corkage.
To my mind this is blatant profiteering by La Reunion and their new partner Vinoteca. We objected and refused to pay the corkage but paid the inflated price of the wine. They have just lost regular customers ...perhaps they don't care - presumably Vinoteca are paying a handsome rent for their exclusive and exorbitantly overpriced outlet in the hotel but this is profiteering on a scale I have not encountered anywhere else in the world and a smear on the reputation of Guatemala.
