Holiday with teenage kidz”
Lovely location, great breakfast and big rooms. Super nice hotel!!!
This is an all inclusive hotel which attracts families with young kids...so Pool is crowded during Xmas season. Some rooms facing parking lot and trees which is not what you would expect after Long distance travelling to Thailand ... We are in our 60’s so felt it was not our best choice despite the service.. Difficult to find a chair around the pool as towels are out just after midnight or very early morning... The hotel does not have chairs on the beach .....This is a must if you enjoy the ocean...
2nd stay in this resort”
Overall is great. Should have been more lenient with extra child at 6 yo. Already paid and booked for 4 adults as there is sufficient bed for the 6 yo and can even share the big bed. I can do away with the extra breakfast for this extra child. Otherwise, it would have been perfect, else this would not be my 2nd stay in this resort.
Great hotel if have young children”
Great location, on the beach with a large swimming pool so great if have young children. Also close to Laguna area which has a great selection of restaurants. Staff friendly & helpful like most Thai staff. Low season price, real value for money. Would stay here again.
Excellent in all areas”
This was our 6th visit . We booked for a week and enjoyed it so much we extended our stay for a 2nd week . The staff are friendly and the service , meals and facilities are very good . The hotel keeps the food and beverage prices at reasonable rates so we enjoyed staying at the resort . Good happy hours and prices at the various hotel bars . We will definitely return to stay at Arinara .
Good value hotel. Usually hotels have high prices for food and drinks but at Arinara all their bars and restaurants are used freuently by guests as this property has excellent prices for meals and drinks . The property always looks after you. This is our 6th visit and we will return.
Quick stay but was very pleased”
We were only here for a few hours due to late night partying but woke up to find a very nice hotel. The room had its own plunge pool at the rear and was a very nice sized room with two king beds. The two beds were separated by a sliding door. The meals area for breakfast was huge as was the main pool. There is a very short stroll to the beach if you want to mix it up a bit. This looks like it would be a great hotel for a family stay. Disappointed I only saw it with a hangover.
A Perfect Stay With Small Children”
This is the perfect family holiday location. The swimming pools (4 connected) are a great feature. There's 2 that are very shallow suitable for supervised toddlers. There's very good restaurants near by as well as a few shops to by everything one needs.Rent a car to get around. There is good near by taxi service if needed. The beach is reasonably clean, compared to others on the Southern end of Phuket. Phuket's tourist officials, civic leaders and ALL HOTELS, need to get together to address this problem. I've been visiting the island since the early 90s and there's a lot of garbage on the beaches as well as near by roads. Early morning clean up crews should be sent out daily.
Great Beach front Hotel”
We really enjoyed our stay. The hotel staff take great care to help and are constantly working to keep the place well maintained. It was low season and some room and pool renovations were underway. It posed no inconvenience at all. It did not detract from the overall, very enjoyable stay. The place is perfect for a romantic retreat as well as families with small children. Well equipped, clean and safe play areas are available as well as 2 kiddie pools. The long curving pools fronting the ground floor rooms are a fantastic idea. Nice to have cocktails at night while cooling off just a step from the room. The main pools 2 are expansive. Not very deep but enough for a good long swim. The in-pool / side bar is nice. My only complaint is the main pool hours. Would be better if the stayed open until 10 or 11 at night. The location is good with on the beach access. Nice restaurants outside the hotel along the road. Except the little one on the street just left of the hotel (if you face out toward the street) named "THE KITCHEN". We ordered steamed fish in lime juice, aka plah manao. They served us an old stiff smelly fish. Rigamortis had set and it wasn't cooked at all. It was barely heated. BEWARE! Despite that gross experience,(no fault of the hotel), we will return.
Great hotel on a great beach ”
I stayed here for 2 weeks with my GF in May the hotel was very nice and clean. The pool areas was superb. Hotel right on the beach with easy access. There was plenty of choice for breakfast.The BBQ night was very good. We ate here a lot during the day food was alway very good and well priced for a hotel. The rooms were big and cleaned everyday towels changed every day. The staff were nice and friendly. Nothing i could fault at this hotel and the price was great. We had a fantastic stay here and would recomend to anyone.
Excellent hotel - highly recommend”
We really enjoyed our stay here. The staff were excellent, communicated well and were very accommodating (we asked for softer pillows which were supplied straight away). We ended up in a pool access room which was superb - I would recommend that you choose this option - we certainly will next time. The breakfast was typical Thai resort style with lots of variety and omelettes made to order. It was very quiet whilst we were their, but I suspect that it gets busier during the more popular times and would be attractive to families.
Beach front with great pools”
I took my dad to this hotel for a very quick 2 nights from Hong Kong. The staff were friendly, the room was great, it's right on the beach and it's only 30 minutes from the airport. Bang Thao beach was pretty quiet and there's much around the hotel. This stay is best for relaxation. Overall we had a great time.
Fantastic Pool with Direct Beach Access”
Although its location is a little secluded, the little town within walking distance of the hotel caters to most of travellers' needs. The hotel was a refurbished hotel, but the renovations done were very recent and the hotel feels new again. The pool is their central attraction, and the hotel is directly on the beach. The room can sleep 5 persons with 2 powerful aircon and good heater for the strong water pressure in the bathroom. Their staff was very attentive, and friendly and personalised service with relatively good command of English. We had no problems connecting to the fast internet provided FOC. Overall, although our stay was short, we loved being in Arinara. We will definitely be back!
Summary: Good hotel in good location at beach with some minor issues, which doesn't ruin your vacation. The good things: - Location is great, Hotel is basically in the beach and the pools are good and kept well - Breakfast is good, there is everything you need - Rooms are in good conditions, some rooms have some minor mold issue (smell) - Hotel staff was friendly and helpful - Organised activities like beach volley, waterbic etc. Some minor issues: - Air condition remote controller didn't work when we arrived, though it was fixed quickly - Safety didn't work, but fixed quickly - Cleaning wasn't so thorough every day - Staff English abilities were very limited, they have difficulties to understand some basic things - There was very limited information about the hotel provided at arrival, you need to ask and find out everything by yourself (maybe related to English abilities) - Gym equipment were bit outdated and some of the equipment required some fixing
Good big rooms, nice staff, decent gym, huge pool and direct beach access, 7 minute walk to bars and restaurants
Two friends away for the weekend”
Me and one of my friends decided to escape the city for a few nights and loved every minute of it. Right on the beach, brilliant breakfast. I will definitely return!!
No way is this a 4 star hotel. Room was clean but The "All inclusive" option should come with a warning that not everything (food & drinks) is included. The food in the one restaurant covered by the all inclusive deal was street food standard. Lack of daily variety (same every day) and available within certain hours only. Staff were a bit hit and miss - some good but mainly miss. Communications were difficult. Loud music into the early hours from the resort next door. Extra charge to use beach sun loungers.
Everything was good, we had a nice stay”
We had a nice stay here, everything was good. The only thing that can be improved is the speed of the internet. The speed was up and down. Some renovations going on at the time, but it didn't affect our stay.
An enjoyable stay”
Generally very happy. This is an older hotel but is very well maintained. Rooms are large with a good sized balcony . Staff are very nice, rooms are cleaned well. Food and drinks at the pool bar were very good and reasonably priced. Good location at one end of the small restaurant, retail precinct. Everything is within a 15 minute walk.
Great stay! ”
We had a lovely stay at Arinara! Boys had so much fun in the pool! Poolbar happy hour was a bonus. Good breakfast. Only negative, very old towels and a beach resort without sun loungers on the beach. You have to rent them per day.
