Great hotel, location, staff and service was outstanding. The only fault I could list would be the bed is very hard. Other than that im looking forward to coming back!
Richard, au2 night trip with friends
Very good 8.0
Overall good accommodation. Stayed in the garden superior room which mean't I was away from the pool party area enough that I could relax or sleep without hearing music 24/7. Good breakfast options. Wifi signal was pretty poor and kept dropping in and out. Staff were very helpful, lovely and quick to fix any issues.

Great location but won't stay again.
Second time at Ark, first thing, booked and money taken from card then on check in tell us about 3 days of planned power outages for 2 hours each day between 9-11pm first night then 11am-1pm second 2 days so no air con in rooms during this time and they knew about this, we should've been told before taking our money, they still managed to run power in the pool and bar areas to keep raking in the cash but didn't care about running the guests air cons on the generators as they'd already taken our cash. Another issue with this place is there is no quiet rooms, guests from both other hotels and Ark guests come yelling thru the walk ways at all hours. We moved to another resort once our booking finished. Won't stay Ark again, too many people yelling all hours around the room areas not being manned is enough for me to go elsewhere next time.

Very nice place updated rooms, pools and awesome beach bar/restraunt. Very popular place for beach and pool parties. Might not be suitable for kids as the music can be heard from rooms at night

Party here but stay somewhere else
The thumping base music starts at 2:pm and goes nonstop until 2:am there is no escape from it so if you are under 25 years old and want to party till you puke every night this is the place to stay. It however was a total sausage fest for our entire stay except or maybe including the ladyboys who show up after midnight to see what they can find. This place also does not accept credit cards so you can forget charging to your room. There is no advantage to staying here but you can be guaranteed you will not be sleeping before 3:am on any night.
