The sea area to swim in front of the resort

The clientel, it atracts some plonkers/possers I think you pay more because of the clubbing scene at the ark maybe get more for your money somewhere else ? It didnt bother me but the planes from airport fly exactly over the ark & revelars sometimes make a lot of noise
The staff were helpfull one discounted me 10% when i stayed longer without me asking ;-) they sprayed my room for mosquitos for me Location great pool sunbead area nice

The Music.I don't know why they do not play chill out music during the day( they used too) and ramp it up about 6pm and not 2 pm . It would make the pool and beach more relaxing.
On the beach ,choice of three pools ,prem deluxe are best rooms .location.

Stayed here multiple times die to location primarily. You can get similar standard facilities if not better if you want to be a little out of the centre and don't mind a healthy walk or scooter ride. Nothing can beat the location if you want to be on chaweng beach.

They kept our whole deposit because the cleaner said she couldn't find a teaspoon......
Good place to come if you want to sit round a pool and listen to music, not much going on and not very busy

So loud. You can head the music vibrating through the hotel until 2am. When I got into my room within the first 15 minutes I had five mosquito bites and had killed over 10 Mosquitos. I know we're in Thailand but even in all the hostels and other hotels I've stayed in there were never that many.

Very poor communication language. Not flexble at all .. No body care if you are coming through 16 hours flight or so still you need to spend an hour to check in , and another hour if you have a shortage of 10$. Check out time is 11 which make no sense, and any additional minute after 11 you have to pay 50% of your daily room rate. House keeping ends up at 2:30 pm, if your party finish at 7 am you still have to wake up to make up your room , otherwise it remains as it is. BUT if you check out at 4 o'clock. You will find the house keeping happily cleaning your room ! I hade one bad experience that i went out the hotel and when im back I found my room door is completely opened. And no one in the room.
The atmosphere is amazing in arkbar. The quality of every thing inside starting from the spoon to the construction of the building is very good

Noise Level can be an issue if ur a light sleeper. Music plays most of the time! Just pack some earplugs if u want to go to bed before 2am :-)
Staff were good, facilities r great!
May 3, 2015
The music, it was terrible. It was like 1 continuous song all day.
The quiet tree bar pool/ choices of pools, food was awesome, staff were very nice.

One thing you have to becareful of is using the white towels that they provide you in the room for room use only if you stain them then you'll be charged. Using different coloured towels would make sense

You have to pay a 1,000 baht key deposit. Also, if you plan on paying by credit card, they charge an extra 5%. Highway robbery!
I loved the location (directly on the beach) and as a solo traveler, the hotel was a great way to meet people. Cleaning staff was super nice and friendly. Front desk staff were annoying.

Location all good
April 21, 2015
The superior twin room was a bit small. However, the prices are so good that next time i'll grab a double room to myself.
Ark Bar is one of the best parties on the island, and is situated on Chaweng Beach, which is beautiful. The pool party in the day is great, and the tunes are banging. At night the beach comes alive and people flock to Ark Bar to get hard on it. Highly recommended.
April 19, 2015
Will be noisy if you get a room by beach end party. But it is a party resort so be prepared.
Staff were always pleasant and helpful. Rooms were clean and spacious. Location to the beach and main strip made it easy.

Breakfast should be included with stay
The party never ends

I regularly go to Ark bar a night out especially on a Friday but this time I decided to stay there as I had a friend visiting. The rooms are great and there are 3 different swimming pools with regular day time parties and a party every night on the beach. It is also located right on the beach front for those who love the sea. The hotel provided free water and tea and coffee facilities as well as free water. I would recommend this place for those who love to party as it's also a few minutes walk from other big clubs just as Sound and Green Mango as well as several other bars and restaurant.

The floor had a cracked tile with tape covering it. Hope your not a lite sleeper with all the planes heading in for landing over the hotel.
The rooms had great AC and the Internet was pretty good.
April 14, 2015
Too many kids around, it's more of a younger crowd vibe and the kids kinda ruin it when you're chilling by the pool sipping cocktails and there are kids running around.
Amazing staff, good cocktails, nice rooms, overpriced but pretty nice.
