I had booked this hotel, based on surfers ratings. When I landed in Phuket, there was a political demonstration going on and the only way to the hotel was blocked.
After sitting in a car for 2 hours and no end in sight, I called the hotel and explained the situation.
The duty manager was very understanding, cancelled our reservation and agreed not to charge me 1 night for no show (to which the hotel was entitled, since I called at 10 pm).
I liked the attitude very much.
One of the days I was in Phuket I drove by the hotel. The location is perferct for people who want a quiet vacation and the property looked veyr nice.
