Pressure to spend more

The resort and hotel are good, in fact very good, excellent location, nature, sun, seaside, amenities. However the whole system is designed in a way to extract as much money as possible from the tourists - mostly from the US, Canada and Western Europe. After paying almost $500 per night one would expect some extra comfort and appreciation. The reality is that once there - you are actually a hostage to the resort with its inflated prices, there's nothing else around as an alternative. Or there is, some restaurants and recreational activities belonging to the same resort consortium - so it's a catch 22 situation - supposedly there is a variety but only on the terms and prices established by the resort. There is a constant pressure on the part of the staff to spend extra money and to order things that one doesn't necessarily need. This pressure makes you uncomfortable. On top of the high prices a mandatory ITIBIS (sales) tax of 18 percent and additionally 10 percent mandatory tip is calculated, so you end up with 28 percent higher bills. And the staff always expect extra tip on top of it. The distance to the airport is two miles, the hotel arranges a transportation for $20, when you handle $20 to the driver he's not happy, expects tip on the $20 you've already paid for the two miles. And more of that stuff throughout our stay.
