Deposit required Areca Lodge

Recommended Posts

I am arriving in Pattaya for the first time in Late Febuary, and was looking at a room at Areca Lodge, but they only have a standard and are insisting on a deposit via a faxed form with credit card details. Can anyone advise if this is the norm for hotles in Pattaya, as I was going to settle via cash on arrival as I am wary of giving my credit card details in Thailand after various comments on the forum.

I would not stand too close to the windows there, you might 'fall' out.

Don't know about Areca mate. I was in their neighborhood and it looked like a reputable joint. But my business (job) relates to this kind of stuff and we advise NEVER, EVER provide your credit card details to an unknown party, especially in another country. Via fax just makes it worse because a fax machine can hold onto the image until someone with a bad attitude comes along. Be careful.
