We were completely taken by surprise after reading the first two positive reviews on this place because in our 3 months of travelling through South East Asia (Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam & Malaysia) Klong Jark Bungalows was the WORST accommodation we have ever stayed in. It was overpriced (1000 THB per night) and in shocking condition to say the least. The beachfront unit we stayed in was filthy & smelly, infested with ants and had bits of cardboard taped over holes in the wall in our bathroom. We found the place to be serviced by lazy, rude & disinterested staff except for one poor woman who seemed to be trying her best to make up for this. Whilst we were there we had no running water and soon found out from other guests that this had been a problem for 3 days with no one willing to take ownership of the problem. When a couple of the guests went to complain about the water situation the staff disappeared and those left suddenly couldn’t speak English anymore. This behaviour epitomised the attitude of the staff towards their guests. We were so desperate to leave we ended up booking two nights for more than double the price at the upmarket Anda Lanta further down the beach which was so much nicer! If you are headed to Klong Jark we would recommend staying at Anda-Lanta resort or else check out accommodation on the neighbouring bays. There is really no need to gamble with a stay at this awful place.
