Not good
Our room was near the night club they have inside the hotel, we could not sleep. Very small room! We paid a lot for this... Would not recommend!!

Good 6.0
Not a good place
This hotel is old and everything is outdated. The room we rented wasn’t cleaned properly. No vacuum was done and it was dusty. Kitchen was dirty as well. The beds were comfortable. It has a very nice view. Hotel management drove us around for a fee. 20 min walking to the beach and grocery.

Exceptional 10.0
Party central area
Great service always with a smile. Remembered what drinks I previously ordered. The rooms were clean. They had all the basic amenities. There were some ants in the room but that is to be expected in Thailand.

Hotel ark bar beach resort is nightmare - bed bugs
Hotel ark bar is a disaster. room 1218 had bed bugs. I checked out 2 days early and requested full refund for my troubles. Hotel told me they would give me another room. And said it wasn’t bedbugs because I was the first to complain. I said there is always a first. Called and was told I could get $150 voucher. I asked for Mgr. Was then told I would get 2 nights refunded. I asked for all 4 and was told unlikely but they will try. I still don’t even have the 2 nights refund 5 days later. Please refund all 4 nights as this hotel you listed was a nightmare. Bedbugs don’t just disrupt the trip they follow you home sometimes which is the real concern that I might be looking at a $5000 bill to exterminate apartment. I asked mgr to let me know about extra 2 nights refund on top of the 2 nights refund offered. Got no contact on either still after 5 days, not even the 2 night credit.
