Arinara Bangtao Beach Resort, Choeng Thale, Thailand
Convenient resort
Had a great stay at Arinara. Resort pool was very large, with sunbeds all arounds. Amazing restaurants and bars - great selection of food in buffets including breakfast. Easy access to beach. Room pool access was great. Hwoever air conditioning does not work (set to fan mode only) and bed was not vwry comfortable. Staff were friendly!

relaxing getaway
Resort wasn't busy so it almost felt like a "private holiday: Room was clean and cleaned daily. Mattress very firm. A DVD player would be a bonus. Bathroom good. Needs a bigger fridge. Room service was limited despite varied menu from the restaurant on site. Pools are large and varied, something to suit everyone, kids area and swim up bar. There are facilities for the children, but we didn't take children so can't really rate them. Breakfast was plentiful but the bacon is typical of most resorts in Thailand or Bali, not like Australian. Coffee service was good. Food is average for this area. Right on the beach and within walking distance of several restaurants. Massage cabanas right on the beach, great place for a massage, so relaxing listening to the sounds of the ocean. Mini golf is almost next door and you can get a discount by mentioning the resort that you stay in. Location is approx. 30 minutes from airport and Patong, so taxi is required but if you like to get away from the hustle and bustle well worth it as the taxi fare isn't that expensive and is negotiable. It was my partners birthday and they left a cake and candles for him, so thoughtful. They will store your bags, use the facilities until you are ready to go to the airport. I would recommend this resort to anyone. They have several room choices, we prefer the option of pool at your balcony. Room 6107 looked good from the outside as the pool area was bigger near that room.

Definitely not a high class hotel!
I was disappointed with this resort coming from the Centara in Krabi.This hotel claims to be a 4.2/5 rating, but it's more like a 3/5. The hand rail was almost coming off the wall in the bathroom, the shelving for the towels underneath the sink was loose. The water pressure in the bathroom was terrible. They say they have a fitness centre but it is AWFUL. There are only 3 sets of dumb bells, the largest being 4kg. The a/c and power tripped on one occassion and the equipment is in desperate need of replacing and updating. The floors were also ripped and rising off the floor creating trip hazards. There were also not enough power points for such a large room and the TV reception was poor. The good features were a nice spacious room with two double beds and a/c units and a good buffet breakfast. The staff was exceptionally friendly and many thanks to Dang for going above and beyond assisting me during my 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.
