This being my first visit to phuket, I wanted to take my boyfriend out for a romantic evening and did considerable research to find the perfect restuarant with a great view.
I called on a Thursday morning to book dinner with Diavolo for Saturday evening. On asking the best time for the perfect view, i was advised to come around 7:30pm to catch the sunset from the restuarant.
On Saturday evening, I was in for my first dissapointment. While we were on our way yo the restaurant, the sun was already setting. This was around 6:20pm. By the time we got to the restuarant, it was 7:15pm and pitch dark. I was disheartened that we missed the spectacular view - the main reason why I booked diavolo!
The second shock- when we got to the place, the parking assistant informed us that the restuarant was closed for the day due to a private wedding dinner!!
The receptionist then confirmed that I did have a reservation but they were moving the dinner venue for all regular guests to another smaller restuarant in the hotel. This place was below the main diavolo restuarant and wouldn't have the same view.We were so upset that we immediately took the same cab back to patong.
AnyOne not staying at Paresa resort - please note that the resort is at a very remote location, uphill and spooky. Even our local lady taxi driver was scared to drive along the deserted route, so we paid her extra as we knew she wouldn't get any customers on her return trip.
So much effort and such a debacle! I am very disappointed. I would expect a restaurant of such high acclaim to have the basic ettiquetes of informing in advance if there are any changes to dinner reservation etc
