It really resemble a social psychology experiment, reason why I decided to amplify it ;)
According with one of the reception employees it worked well, with the
gains from not paying an extra employee and the turists satisfaction surpassing the
small costs from people who consumed without paying.
I agree tha the fact it was a small community of turists, having a good time and establishing a
positive exchange with the villages resort also played a role.
Thanks for your comment, Diogo
