For the majority of pepple who stay there it' s pretty normal and they wouldn't bat an eyelid at 280 for New Years Eve.

I hate how peopleï compare Frank Zappa to God. I mean, he's cool and great and nice and everything, but he's no Zappa.

Zé from Xutos has sadly passed away, so they will be looking for a new headline for NYE. I can’t imagine the rest of the band playing without him.

That majority is corporate from the get go. They are business people and professionals so in their position are you going to pay with your business or your personal card? Through the business you recover your VAT/ IVA and your paying with money that hasn’t already had your personal tax, your NI’s, the company’s NI contribution taken from it (which applies if it’s your business as it’s still your money).If you take a guest, ie, legit entertaining, you don’t have to put it down as a benefit in kind.
If the bill was £1000, how much would you have to earn to pay that? Depends on your tax rate but considerably more, probably half as much again. If your business is paying the £1000 less the VAT, as you claim it back, less the NIC’s, considerably less, safe to say that way it’s half the price at least and if you own the business it’s your money anyway so you’re managing your finances and tax bills and getting the same product/service for half the price. No brainer.

Sad news, but the obit I read in the Noticias said he passed after a long illness, so maybe the band have contingency plans?

The point I was trying to make was that if you a regular holiday maker who can afford to stay there, not just at New Year, but any time of the year, then 280 euro for a night out wouldn't be a problem. In fact it's probably loose change for most of their customers.
Very few people who stay there ever complain about the prices they are charged - 5 euro for a can of coke/bottle of water. 8 euro for a small beer or ice cream, 15 euro per day for wi-fi, 60 euro a day to send your kid to the junior club, 14 euro for your kid to take part in the daily football match, at least 150 euro for dinner for 2 etc
I'm sure there will be a lot of corporate clients but there but there will be plenty of "normal" people staying there over Xmas and New Year who would not find it too extortionate to attend that particular event.
