Had a private bungalow for me and a friend, pretty sure we were the only people staying at this place in the 3 days we were there. Didn't see another soul except for the owners, who are selling the place, which may explain why they don't seem overly interested in their business. The bungalows themselves are very spacious, but the...

Stayed here for 3 nights in a private bungalow with private bathroom at US$30 p/night. I think the sharing options were US$18 p/night. Definitely glad we stayed here on Otres beach! Such a great spot! Bungalows were single and clean. Shower's only had cold water (which was fine because it was always warm anyway!) and non-flushing toilets. I feel like...

When we arrived the friendly owner led us to our room at the back of the complex- a standard room with a shared bathroom. The room was a fair size, cosy and clean with a mosquito net to shield us at night. The rooms can be padlocked from the outside and are bolted from the inside. Didn't feel particularly secure...

My boyfriend and I stayed here for two nights over NYE and both agreed it was the best 'budget' place we have stayed as far as bungalows go. The rooms were clean and simple (towel provided, fan, bug net, shelves, drying line for clothes), the bed was comfy, the shared bathrooms were very clean our whole stay and the breakfast...

We stayed here for 4 nights then went to KRS, then we came back and stayed another 3 nights. The huts are great, have fan, net, little table, bed side tables and shelves. Perfect to put your things. The walls are concreate and beautifully painted. The shower and toilets are also very nice. The couple who run are both very...

The bungalows are very lovely and clean. Toilet and shower work and everything is taken care of. The hosts are nice. Good thing here is that if you want silence and anonymity, you can find it. If you are more into a party place, this is not for you. Recommended for sure!

Otres Beach is definitely the area to stay when you are in the Sihanoukville area. If you want a clean, neat, affordable place to stay, this is it! The staff were wonderful and helpful. The huts were nicer than I imagined and very tidy. So, so close to the beach, but far from the loud late night crowds so you...

If you're staying on Otres you have your fair share of choice amongst guesthouses, but the Don't Tell Mamma stands out amongst the crowd. It's run by lovely people that are very helpful and kind. The rooms are in charming bungalows and leave very little to be wanted (I can only think of a hot shower really). From the guesthouse...

I loved this place. The owners were very helpful and friendly - they even gave us an extra lock to lock our rented moto up at night! The room was different and had lovely little touches within it (including an in house gecko to keep away the mosquitos!). Fantastic location and a great find.

Stayed 2 nights at Don't Tell Mama in a bungalow - the room and bathroom were very clean, beds had mosquito nets - and the best part - fans! The fan made all the difference and gave me a great night's sleep. The bed was comfortable, and the beach was only a minute walk away (Otres). And a beautiful beach...
