Check in times in Phuket

We have heard that most hotels dont let you check in until around 2pm? Can anyone confirm this please?

We arrive from Perth after a 12 hour journey, vis Singapore, at around 9am. We have to get thru customs etc and travel to Patong, but would still mean a waiting period of around 3 hours or so...

Contact your hotel and tell them estimate arrival time and ask if its a problem to get the room early.

Hi ,

It depends on the hotel , but we have stayed in lots of hotels in Phuket , and always seem to arrive early, last year 7 AM at the Marina and have always gone straight to our room. I worry that if you contact the hotel before you arrive they may charge you extra to have your room early,which would need to be the case in high season , but in low season it should not be a problem.

I agree with the other posters, that you should explain your situation to the hotel and I'm sure that they will do their best to accommodate you. We've not had any problems in Phuket before, but rarely stay in hotels these days, so I'm not such a great expert in that department.
