Visited here with around seven families. All relatives and friends on a trip to Arugambay and this is the best place around as I could see to stay in a decent manner. Rooms are normal and liveable. Staff is very helpful and kind. Food is nothing special but safe and clean. Rooms could do better. Food could do better with... More

The staff at the hotel were very welcoming and helpful. The property is made up of two buildings on either side of the road. The beach side has some nice hammocks to watch the world go by on the beach. The pool was on the far side of the road and was warm and not exceptionally clean. The rooms were... More

We were brought to Tri Star Beach by our driver who knew the owner, and it was a good recommendation with a good value, clean room with AC. The location is great with the beach literally outside your door, and close to lots of nice bars and places to eat such as Hideaway and Siam View. Breakfast was juice, toast... More

I don't know why this place has low reviews, the location was the best in all of arugam! You literally walk out and there's the beach. Was great having the grassy area to relax in the hammock or deck chair. The staff were just so so kind and couldn't do enough for us. The breakfast was fresh fruit, toast and... More

You could find a flasher hotel but not a better location. Staff friendly and we only found this place by chance after leaving another unsatisfactory hotel. Air con works well and beach view is great. Breakfast is also included. The rooms are a little dated but we all thought it was great value for money
