Man Jailed In Thailand For Negative Hotel Review


Recommended Posts

 

Actions like this will turn tourists off.  If you can't give a negative review, then how can you trust any reviews about Thailand?  I can't believe they actually jailed him, but time will tell if he serves any time.  This really makes LOS look bad imo ...

More active discussion on this on the Pattaya forum.  The good news, there are lots of negative reviews about Thailand hotels, but this is the only such incident.  The guy must have really pissed them off.

This s an extreme case to say the least, but the guest does seem to be an ass hole. Read the story about the original altercation in the hotel restaurant over a wine corkage charge.

I do not believe it was the 1 star review that landed the guy in hot water with the authorities. It was the defamation of the restaurant manger and the false, vindictive (from the perspective of the hotel manager) report posted on travel advisor. Did the hotel manager over react in filing charges? Absolutely. I would be concerned about his mental state If I were the owner. Perhaps both the manager and the guest should take an anger management course with Jack Nicholson. 555.

My understanding is that the guy went on multiple review sites, and left reviews that went clearly over the top and far beyond his original grievance, with the apparent goal of damaging the venue's deputation and future revenue. It's those latter points around scope, truthfulness, and ultimate intent that hung the guy. He clearly wanted to screw them, and got screwed in return. Som nam naa...
