We stayed in Arkbar for 5 nights and had a great time. We booked a junior suite as they seemed like the best room type. The junior suites are in Ark 3, (I didnt realise the 3 hotels were not all in the same place) but Ark 3 definately seemed like the best one.
Our room was lovely with a large bed, sofa and nice balcony. We were pretty close to the bar/pool but this didnt bother us at all. We literally stepped out of our room and onto the beach which is why Ark is probably so popluar. Loads of sunbeds and music all day so the beach is pretty much always lively. The staff at Ark are great too, there are so many people working there that you will never have to wait long for anything! Food was fine, massive range of dishes and a huge drinks menu! We were there for Arks weekly beach party which was a really good night too.
We didnt use the pool but it looked nice, sun loungers always taken up early though, there is another nice pool at the back which was a lot quiter but there was some construction work going on round there.
We stayed here as a couple, and i would stay here again. Good for groups of mates too.
