I can honestly say that my room at Aree was one of the most overpriced and awful rooms I've ever stayed at in Lamai. i booked in advance and got an 'interior' room, with no sea view and one window - facing the building. It was dark, small, and at 1000B a night, well overpriced! Helmut, the German owner was not friendly, in fact he seemed stressed out and harassed most of the time. He said he'd give me a 100B discount on the room if I didn't use air-cone, but there was no way I could have stayed in that room without it! It was hot and humid, not really clean either.
The beach front rooms have a much better view (and are right on the beach), but for the price, you can get much better for much less if you look around. There are numerous places both left and right of Aree, that charge a lot less!
