No, I didn’t spell it wrong… Although I wouldn’t be surprised if they did. Now, I have a general rule where I don’t like to speak negatively about anyone or anything on my site but I have to make an exception in the case of The Huracan Cafe in Punta Cana.

Huracan Cafe Sucks ASS

The Huracan Cafe in Punta Cana is a small restaurant I went to with a few of my peers from our last trip. We didn’t really need to go to a restaurant for dinner as we were staying at an all inclusive resort but the manager offered us a free dinner, (No, I’m not naive, you’d be surprised what you get offered for free when you’re traveling with a bunch of Playboy models).

You see, we were shooting on the beach close to the restaurant when the manager approached us with a tray full of beer. He then proceeded to invite us for the said free dinner. I told him he didn’t have to do that, I’d be happy to come for dinner with my friends but only if he agreed to give us a really good price.

This manager prick swore up and down that it would be super cheap.

So we come to the Huracan Cafe for dinner and have a pretty good night…

The manager was all smiles serving us up with smiles and answering any question and small talking the whole night. I should have known something was up when I saw the manager give the bill to a bus-boy to bring to me.

To my surprise the bill was over $1,000.00!

WTF!

I got up to go see the manager regarding the bill and as soon as I did a bunch of guys came out of the kitchen as if to threaten me to pay. I asked the manager what happened to the price he promised me?

To this he replied that the owner would not ‘authorize it’.

The lying, scandalous prick lied to me!

I guess I was a sucker that night… Certainly over $1,000.00 poorer as a result.

I asked a couple of locals about the place afterward and all of them told me it had a bad reputation for this practice.

There is a bright side to this story tho.

1. I have written to the tourist bureau of The Dominican Republic, as well as resorts surrounding Hurican Cafe of it’s practices.

2. The next day I was going to shoot a spread for Playboy there and they would have made more on the location fee than the dinner. Obviously, I chose an alternate location.

3. I’m hopeful that enough people will read about their practices and avoid them, causing them more in lost revenues than they collected from me.

Karma is a bitch Marco – Kiss my cyber ass!

WEEEEEEEE – I feel much better now.
