Please post your figure.
line these days for a tourist resort in high season, with only one or
two computers for several hundred guests
From a description I found of the hotel:
"All of the air-conditioned lodgings come with an en suite bathroom with
a hairdryer, a direct dial telephone, satellite/ cable TV, a radio, an
Internet connection, a minibar, a hire safe and a terrace."http://www.alpharooms.com/brisas_guardalavaca_in_playa_guardalavaca.aspx
"Facilities include a 24-hour reception desk, a safe, a currency
exchange facility and a lift in addition to a hairdressing salon, a bar,
a nightclub, a games room, a restaurant and Internet access."
It even boasts : "public internet"
Again, the "public internet" there consists of only one computer in
the main lobby for the use of hundreds of guests. And they charged $5
(CUC) for 2 minutes during my stay there at March break -- reasonable
given complaints about long line-ups.

send that urgent e-mail. This is what they were charging at the hotel
I was staying at March break in Holguin. Now Fric and Frac here are
desperately trying to make something of this.
Some comments here:
From Lonely Planet where someone tested your "$150" claim:
Poor, desperate, lobbyist... Setting up a straw man to cover up for
his lack of local knowledge.
exposing your lies about me as usual.
The hotel quoted a price of $5 for 2
According to the hotel 5 CUC per hour.
Get back to us
when you have ALL the facts, Mr. Lobbyist. What a loser!
I have Dan and they expose you as the pathetic liar you are.
According to the hotel itself internet access costs 5 CUC per hour.
Better write back, Mr. Lobbyist. Ask them about the rate during the
March break, their high season. It was 5 CUC for 2 minutes. Anyone who
says otherwise, they doesn't know what they are talking about.
