More than USA prices.. You get a 3 star hotel for 5 star prices.

They suffered major damage from a storm that hit the GB spit of sand a couple weeks ago...you might check if they're even operating. Enjoy

I like the place, have stayed there many times and am going again in three weeks. I would give them a chance. It's all about location! If there has been a lapse in quality, I am sure they will fix it.

I like their food but the rooms are a little pricey for me, I'd rather camp.

2 years ago the margaritas were stiff and the food was good. Last year... well, it wasn't anything close...

What are "mexican prices?"

Do mexican hotel operators get labeled as un-mexican if their prices exceed a certain threshold? What is the threshold?

I do know they like to charge dollars instead of Pesos. Does that count.

I believe that it all boils down to "value for money spent "

And it appears that Alfonsina's is NOT..

I do not like to stay at places that charge in a currency other that the one established in the Country that I'm in.

This is a dead giveaway that I'm getting overcharged.

It's a given that the owner is paying for all his help, food, utilities and such IN PESO's So it stands to reason that they are simply trying to capitalize on the strong Dollar. IE " greedy"

I travel mainly to countries where my dollars go further so I try my best to patronize those establishments that are of value.
