We spent 5 nights at Arinara and loved it. The garden view pool access room was fantastic, with verandah access to a long quiet pool in a garden setting. This pool can only be seen and accessed from pool access rooms so is very private. The resort itself is large, well maintained and opens directly on to the beach. Bang Tao Beach is lovely but is very long which meant it was hot long walk to get to most of the on beach restaurants from the resort. The resort is horse shoe shaped around the large main pool and features several bars and eateries. These were all mostly very good although we had one forgettable evening meal at the Grill that was marred by confused but very polite staff getting most orders wrong and lengthy waits for average meals despite very few diners. The resort staff were all very friendly and mostly provided efficient and prompt service. The buffet breakfast was as good as any we've experienced and Alex the Pool Manager showed that pool managing is not his only skill, he was a great host each morning at breakfast, we never had to ask or wait for coffee. Tip for great cheap evening meals, turn right at the beach entrance and stroll 100 meters to Sea Sea (look for the tables on the sand and 2 young local boys running towards you waving menus), fine Gilligan's Island decor and great service from the hilarious Mumma.
