Dagupan Village Hotel

Executive suite, similar to matrimonial suite
For Saturday, June 4th, we made an appointment to enjoy our free stay for 2 persons, including breakfast, as part of the reception party package we had in May last for 100+ servings.

Although I was not in favor to make use of this free stay, I finally agreed. and to be honest I regretted it and made suggestions to cancel and go home.

But, to avoid war and keep the peace, I didn't do it. I found out that we had got the matrimonial suite in the old part of the hotel, which had a promo price of 2240 from 3300+ pesos. It is quite a big room but outdated, compared to today's standards.

The list of things that made me sad and angry will follow.

Heineken DraughtKeg

As my mother and brother-in-law were visiting us in May last, I thought to try the Heineken draughtkeg that is available in the Philippines.

For those who are not familiar with Heineken or a draughtkeg, here follows a clarification.

Heineken is one of the largest global beer producers and sellers. It is originally a Dutch company and still is. In the Netherlands it is one of the many local beer producers, and has a large market share.

A draughtkeg is a beer container with a CO2 capsule inside the keg, that produces the gas that is required for the foam on top of the bear. It is usually much better than beer from the bottle, and based on the beer tap technology used in many beer bars/cafes.

You have to put the beer container in the refrigerator for about 24 hours, before you pour the beer in your glass, by pushing the tap on top of the container.

Our experience was not really positive.
