Stay away!
My personal two cents, if you are / looked Chinese, highly recommend that you stay away from this hotel. The staffs are racist and will look at you with the disgusted kind of look till u feel uneasy and uncomfortable. Was there for 4d3n, went for breakfast at their restaurant every morning. U will see staff going around the restaurant to refill coffee / tea. But they will never walk near to the tables that the Chinese/ looked Chinese to offer refill. Their eyes can and only see the Caucasians visitors/ tourist as if they are the only who paid their stay and we stayed for free! Beach and place was beautiful but the hearts of the staff was not. They are no longer the land of smile. Will never visit or even recommend to anyone

Looking a little tired.
The place was older than the photos indicated and is going through major renovations which was not mentioned at all. The slide in the photos was not operational for 5 of the 7 days of our stay which was a major shame as that was one of the reasons we chose to stay at this resort. The room was pleasant, though the TV was on the small side. The staff were polite and helpful. The resort was not busy at all and had a deserted feel to it, though there were still plenty of staff and all restaurants were open and operational. Being close to the beach was good and we enjoyed the eateries along the beach. We had a room that's balcony opened to the pool. This was enjoyed by all of us though looking at the pictures we thought it was a lazy river pool but learnt each group of units has a separate pool and they do not connect. The pools were kept clean. On the whole it was a good stay.

It was very lovely to stay in Arinara Hotel. We stayed for a week with a baby of 14 months and a couple. The two room's balcony had access to the pool (Thanks for the upgrade). The rooms were big, clean, nice and with water and a fresh fruit basket as a complement. The service was good. Staff was very friendly. The internet works very well. Buffet breakfast was good with western (amazing croissants, good omelets, fresh orange juice, yogurts, cereals, fruit, breads and pancakes) and Asiatic choices. The dinner in the restaurant were also good, very good choices (and the best lime martini of my life!!). Happy hour in hotel pool form 4 to 6pm. Many restaurants and stores around the hotel (in the beach and on the back). Very nice kid’s playground!! We were very lucky with the weather, plenty of sunshine and calm seas. We did thai massage (~300 baths) and oil massage (~400baths). Highly recommend. We booked transfer from the hotel to the airport (~700baths). Stuff I think can be improve: charging 100 baht for hotel beach chairs doesn’t make sense (and you need to pay in cash you can’t put on room bill). It was not possible to rent a car or to book a trip through the hotel. The music came from a bar/disco neighboring the hotel, at 1am, that you can hear inside the room is not good when you are traveling with a baby. Doesn’t have any drink inside the mini freezer

Avoid this hotel -
Not sure how this hotel has gotten 4 stars - makes me question the rating system. This place is very out-dated and tired. Food was very poor. No security locks on doors as one expects in any hotel, just a flimsy doorknob. Loud, drunken guests. Would definitely NOT recommend.
