    I have stayed at Hotel Playacar, Mexico 5 years ago for my 65th Birthday and I wore smart tailored shorts for evening meals and am returning 5th June (day after my 70th Birthday) and have been told that I have to wear Long trousers for evening meals. Can you please confirm the situation. Thank you
