  1. The Areca Lodge

    I have stayed twice in the Evergreen Wing at the Areca. There is no charge to bring in one TG/BG; the girl leaves her ID card at reception for security reasons. If you bring in a second girl - you intend a threesome perhaps - there is a charge for the second girl; as I remember it is 500 bahts. Breakfast is a good buffet, many mongers with girls.
  2. Quite right. There are basically two ways financial advisors charge. First, they get commissions on what they get their clients to invest in, sometimes 'trailing' commissions - not just at first but year after year. Avoid these advisors, they have an obvious conflict of interest. Better to pay 'fee for service', you pay for what the advisor does for you; he/she rebates any commissions to you. Fees should be detailed and transparent. Vanguard offer a wide range of funds with low fees. Their web site has lots of informative and educational articles. If you are going to use managed funds companies like Vanguard Investments and Dimensional Fund Advisors are a good way to go (I don't know if they operate in Ireland).
  3. I live in Australia. If I was in your situation I would seek financial advice on renting the house out (need an agent to manage the property for you) and on tax implications. Advantage: regular income which will increase in line with inflation as will the value of the property. (In Oz, growth is faster than inflation). Regular monthly payment to your bank account. House is there if you need to go to live in it.

  5. A Bangkok experience: in February this year I was staying at the Grand President in Sukhumvit Soi 11. After two nights I had to leave, as the hotel was fully booked. I walked up the Soi intending to call in at Holiday Inn to check vacancies. On the way I passed Citadines, went in and asked for the rate. Can't remember exactly but something like "3500 a night but cheaper if you book on the web". I had my iPad with me so immediately sat down in reception and booked on their web site for 3000. Bit more than I'd been paying at Gd President, but hotel was fine.
  6. I have been to Thailand many, many times, including regular visits to Pattaya and to Jomtien. The only hotels anywhere I have ever run into a problem are two: Ambassador Hotel in Sukhumvit Soi 11, Bangkok; the visitor fee was 800 bahts. Freelancer from BKK Biergarten took me to a ST hotel instead. Have not stayed at Ambassador again. Kata Beach Resort in Phuket. MP girl told me there was a hefty visitor fee, so our activities took place in the MP. Two years ago I did stay there with TG GF: no problem.
  7. I have stayed there two times at the Andaman Resort, about ten minutes walk from the pier (there are no vehicles on Phi Phi; a porter takes your baggage in his cart and leads you to your hotel: tip). Hotel was fine but one big snag, which would stop me staying there ever again; it is near the Muslim mosque with amplified lengthy calls to prayer several times a day, including at first light. A killer for my beauty sleep. Suggest you check Google maps for the layout and make sure your accommodation is some distance from the mosque. Walked across the island from the pier to the north side; several hotels here. Phi Phi was fine for three nights but that is enough. Another hint. The big ferry is much better than the a speedboat, which crashes and bangs all the way, leading to seasickness. Big ferry travels to/from Phuket and another one to/from Krabi so one can travel Phuket-Phi Phi-Krabi or the reverse. Either way the trip is about 90 minutes.
  8. I have stayed at Areca two times - good rooms, two pools, small gym, breakfast. I booked on Agoda. Also suggest check trivago.com - The world’s top hotel price comparison site Suspect the price inc breakfast may be more than 1400 but worth looking and perhaps just take the plunge. PS Just checked rates for July on hotels.com. Start at 1460 per night.
  9. Alternatives to Areca.

    I've stayed in Areca Evergreen twice, most recently in August '17. My iPad worked fine on the Wifi in the room and also by the pool.
  10. I have frequently visited Thailand from Australia; the tourist visa is no-charge 30 days. Often I have stayed perhaps a week or ten days then taken a side trip e.g. Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam, China and Europe maybe 2-3 weeks. On return to Thailand it was a routine immigration with a fresh 30-day visa.
  11. The Areca Lodge

    I have stayed there twice, in January 2016 and in July 2016, each time for about five days. Girl friendly, no visitor fee. Hotel does take ID card and returns it to the girl as she leaves. My room rate included breakfast for two; many other mongers were in the dining room feeding their overnight girl.
  12. Grand President Sukhumvit 11 is a large hotel with a range of rooms. Excellent breakfast. Definitely GF, no visitor charge. But I do tip the security man; he checks you are OK before he returns the girl's ID card.
