I've stayed at The Cove twice over the past year and both times I stayed in the apartments at the very top of the hill. The apartments are quite comfortable buy they do need a safe box. The one we stayed in has 4 double beds in 3 rooms. All with nets and air conditioning. There is a small lounge... More

We, 3 Dutch guys, had a awesome stay at the Cove hotel. The lonely planet already said that it is the best place to stay at sererinity beach. The rooms have sea view, are spacious and basic. We paid $35,- for a room for 3 with airconditioning, we thought it was good value for money. The best thing about Cove... More

The location is right on the beachfront with good views over serendipity beach. The staff were friendly. Free breakfast options limited, paid ones better. Hot water didn't work on our bungalow. Ants under towel when we arrived. Whole room felt damp. Food in the evening was actually quite good. Happy hour has limited choice and not really so cheap. The... More

The stay was not at pleasant as we hoped. We stayed in a beach front bungalow, but the bungalow was clearly old, dirty and wery damp inside with no fresh air. The mosquito nets had holes in them so we got bitten. The porch attached to the bungalow was nice, but expect very noisy nights until 5ish since this is... More

We stayed in the cove for 4 nights in an A/C room. The room was clean and big, had a good mosquito net, hot water and a hammock in the nice balcony. The view of the sea from the room was beautiful and the sound of the waves was magical! The bar was just near the beach and the atmosphere... More

Booked A/C room 102 for $30 per night. Room looked ok on first inspection, TV, A/C and hot water shower. Room had a musty smell which is not uncommon in SE Asian beach front properties and airing the room for a couple of hours usually sorts this problem out. However this was not the case here as the musty smell... More

Having read a variety of reviews about this place I was confident enough to book a 2 bed bungalow with aircon - this being a must due to the noise of the bars on the beach. When we arrived they checked us in with the normal process and showed us to a bungalow with a see view. As I'd booked... More

The Cove Beach bungalows has quite a few bungalows and the rooms are quite comfortable with a nice balcony looking over the water. It's a short walk from Serendipity beach (which itself is not the best beach, but is a great party spot) and from the main streets of Sihanoukville. We stayed over the New Years so everywhere was packed... More

My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights in mid Feb and thought when we arrived that we had found the little bit of blissful relaxation we were looking for after a busy week or so in Siem Reap and phnom penh. We stayed in a bungalow room the first night as that was all that was available, and... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Cove Beach Bungalows are located right on the Serendipity Beach. 180 meters to the right, from the pier on Serendipity Beach. The Cove Beach is located over a 60 meter hillside that has natural lush hillside facing the magnificent Serendipity Cove where we are located. We have 13 traditional Khmer style wooden bungalows, 6 AC rooms 1/2 & 3 bed as well as two 3 bedroom apartments. Our final addition is two 4 person dorms. All Bungalows and AC rooms are located in tropical garden settings and have covered balconies with spectacular ocean views. All rooms are equipped with cool-fans and a cold/hot water shower. The restaurant serves Western & Khmer dishes. We also boast a 50 meter chill deck over our beach side location and an 8 x 6 meter beach bar. Great for cocktails and Ice Cold beer when you need a retreat from the heat. ... more   less
