Hi Toby,

I don't think you were lucky.

We had a similar experience a few weeks back when we had friends visiting and we took them to Protaras and Ayia Napa. We got the impression that the retailers and hoteliers had realised that if people aren't coming to the area/country simply putting up prices for those who are is a short-term fix to cover overheads etc. It will work for a couple of seasons then there will be another downward trend. Visitors aren't stupid they can only spend a euro once and they will not return no matter how much they like the island if they feel ripped off and/or cheated.

For the sake of the island in general, and its finiances in paricular, lets hope other retailers and hoteliers take notice.
