Has anyone else received a message from the Bucuti Beach Resort stating that they will no longer be accepting cash on the property? I received this email from the resort management stating that cash will no longer be accepted as a form of payment anywhere on the property. Guests may room charge of credit card charge only.
I wonder why they will no longer accept cash? For us, we will continue to vacation at Bucuti, but I will have to purchase gift shop, restaurant and bar items from neighboring resorts, since I prefer to pay for these type of items with cash or travelers checks (which are considered cash.)
I "never" room charge items (having previously worked in the hospitality business I know for a fact that there are errors, since some people either incorrectly or intentionally charge to the wrong room) or use my credit card for incidentals because I do not want any extra bills when I return home from my trip.
Having to scrutinize my bill at checkout is a hassle if something has to be disputed.
This may be the new policy, but Bucuti will be losing any extra money that I normally spend at the resort.
