Does your lawyer also say that I can presume if they didnít contact me that they will be honoring their contract with me? I want to book loads of nonrefundable expenses

Has anyone NOT had their Accor reservation cancelled by Angsana? Mine are still showing as normal reservations on the Accor site. I'm really interested in taking this as far as I can to try and re-claim that reservation, since it was booked legitimately. Not sure what legal route I could take - other than saying I already purchased non-refundable airfare?

Just confirm it's ok before checkin. Feel free to pm for tips.

Usually not a problem.

@Dan Private pools are great for frum couples. Not as special for other people imo.

+1 private pools donít have nearly the added value for people that arenít frum.

Disagree. No one is doing laps in these pools (even frum people). They're plunge pools. The purpose is to cool off while you're outside reading, tanning or wash off from a dive in the ocean. If you're someone who values your privacy (isn't that the point of your OWB in the Maldives?) or not someone who wants to hang out by the main areas, then the private pools is super useful.

Mine still shows up on the Accor website just like it always has.

+1, though it's now showing the pricing in euros instead of dollars.

I see no need for a plunge pull along with jacuzzi bathtubs.
I just found a new supply of forks!

Conrad pools do look very small though.

Help!
Hilton messed up.
I had a reservation for 4 nights for a water villa at the Conrad for 95,000 points each. I thought I had the 5th night for free. When I called to confirm and double check about the 5th night, they said that it is not in the reservation and not available. After I complained and asked for the reservation specialist, she let me be on hold for half hour after which my phone got disconnected.
When I called again 2 days later I was told that they will change the reservation and add the 5th night. This was last week.
When I just now looked at the new email from last week I see that they downgraded me to a beach villa. HELP!!!!

I called them and spoke to a reservations specialist and she said that there is nothing they can do since that room is not available anymore. I pleaded for half hour and nothing doing. I told her that she can listen to all phone recordings and she will see that I was never told that they will downgrade the room in order to receive the 5th night free. Hilton needs to take responsibility for cheating me out of this room..

She said she will send an email to the Hotel. So now I wait and see. We all know the outcome of this. There are no rooms. She will not upgrade to better Water Villas wich are available. I'm a gold member.

What can I do?
Any advice?

Please help...

Thank you,

Best is for you to contact reservations at the Conrad. They have the power do open up availability and modify any reservation
