Wow - I was so excited to stay at the beach. What I didn't expect was surly staff and a completely unkept property. Rats in the rafters - well, what can you do at the beach. But lice in the sheets? Really? Terrible food. We left after just one night.

I have stayed here twice- even though the rooms may lack a few amenities like coat hangers, wash basin (room 7 ) and where to hang your clothes, the French cooking and friendly staff make up for it. Rithy Kong speaks English and is always trying to improve his learning. Well done Rithy, staff and owners. Helen. Australia

Wodden Bungalows with leaking roof. Rain = wet bedsheets + luggage. Everything seemed unhygienic. Bathromm in Bungalow 2 is in a bad state: no toiletseat and molded rusted sink. When we asked staff to change, they replied it is okay as it is. Many ants in the bathroom and rats in our room. Shared bathroom similar. Food was fair. Great... More

Another beachfront restaurant with tons of charm, just a short stroll from the northern end of Otres Beach. The BBQ shrimp here is divine! The spring rolls are good too. We had a lovely dinner here and will definitely be back when we're next at Otres. Well worth trying.

I enjoyed staying here for 3 nights, however there were a few minor things wrong. The price and the location is pretty good and the quality of the cuisine is really high. However the wifi is terrible in the room and sometimes during the day. Also there is no room service and the shared bathroom cant be reached without getting... More

We are a very strictly budget traveler and for us this is a big luxury. The room is nice and comfy and there's a lot of areas like small planks on the wall to put our things around the room. We were there during rainy season and when there's a small opening of the sun we would be the first... More

My stay at Chez Paou was properly hindered by the weather so I didn't get to see it in its proper beauty. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful though, they were so eager to assist me wherever they could. I received incredible service here and they served very good food. Unfortunately my private room was not very clean, the... More

I came here for dinner and had the scallops in cury which were outstanding. The place isn't cheap in terms of food, but certainly reasonable for the quality. Drinks were reasonably priced. Service could have been more attentive. The atmosphere of the place is really cozy even though it's pretty big.

I must admit, that I only ended here for dinner as this was one of the few nice-looking places which were open on a weekday evening with bad weather during low season - and the didn't seem to be offering (mainly) pizza. And I was glad I went there. They have a number of options for Khmer food, also vegetarian... More

Location is nice, the restaurant has pretty good dishes and the staff is cool. We did have a mouse problem in our hut and ended up throwing out a lot of food even though we stored everything on the third shelf. Shared toilets and showers had a lot of wildlife going on.
