Hi people!

I was wondering whether the use of "will + infinitive" after "if" in a conditional clause was correct or not. Let me give you an example:

A man is seeking advice on how to behave in a foreign country (say, Greece) from one of his friends, who has been there a week ago.

MAN: Hi, X! You know I'm flying to Greece tomorrow and since you went there last week, I was wondering if you could give me some tips.

FRIEND: Sure! Listen: If you'll stay at the Menzies (a hotel), don't have your meals at the hotel. They're much too expensive! Try eating out in some nearby restaurant.

Is the sentence above correct?

Thanks a lot!

Mara.

I think anon means - who WAS there a week ago since anon used ago meaning the friend is no longer in Greece.
Well, it depends on what you mean with the sentence. Anyway "ago" and "has been" can't live together. So it's either

- who was there the week before (he's no longer there), or

- who has been there for a week (he's still there)
