This was handed in to the travel agency where I work. I have the original Portuguese version and even so I can't work out where they got the above phrase from. Somehow I don't think they'll be getting much English-speaking custom!

"Open at a short distance Hotel AuraMar, XXX Hairdresser with Prices specials end with a 10% discount on alls works execute for the Hairdresser, back end verify you not to repent."

Hope the lady's a better hairdresser than she is a translator...

Might she mean that she lets you look at the back of your head in a mirror, so you won't regret it later?

Alternatively, perhaps it's just a cock-eyed way of saying that she has lots of satisfied customers behind her... icon_lol.gif
