Wicky's specials not honored

Just came back from week at El Faro. Went to Wicky's beach club almost every day and enjoyed drinks there each of those days. Think it's the best part of the beach that I saw. Having heard of the awesome burger decided to order food on Monday and we were craving something other than mexican food.
Told our server, Alejandro, that we'd like the burger special. Asked if it came with cheese because my wife likes cheese on her burger. Alejandro says well we have several burger to choose from and several cheeses. So he says I'll bring you a menu. He brings a menu and truthfully there's 3 burgers, but a few cheese options, so we tell him the burgers we'd like and we get those.
We leave about 3 hours later and he brings us our tab for the day and we'd been charged the full amount for the burgers. We ask about that and he says the burgers we selected weren't available for the 2 for 1 deal. We tell him we were clear that we wanted the 2 for 1 deal when we ordered and he says "No, if you order a burger from the menu then those are full price burgers. The 2 for 1 burgers are much smaller and with no toppings." We spend 5 minutes arguing that with him and finally I pay the bill with no tip because we're getting no where. I feel like in this instance he did a poor job. He then starts berating me and telling me that I did a poor job ordering and that he did everything he needed to do. I've never had a waiter or service person do this. Needless to say, during the times we used that beach during the rest of our stay, we avoided Alejandro.
