This place was the very pits of any place in South East Asia that I stayed at. No mosquito net, the bed was wet from roof leaking. The rats ate my food before I could. The bathrooms didn't work. The room was never cleaned the week I was there. The owner tried to con me on a ride to Kampot.... More

When we arrived we found half-empty water bottles and trash left in our room. The previous renter's towels still hung on the door... It was clearly not cleaned. The toilet even had waste in it! We tried to flush but the toilet was broken. The manager said "maybe someone comes tomorrow and fix it" and walked away. We had to... More

We ate here our first night. We had noodles which were acceptable if not a bit overpriced (everywhere on otres 2 is), but our fried rice with beef was just that. Beef and rice, no veg or flavourings. Just a greasy mess. Don't lead with vegetable fried rice with beef and then give me beef and rice. Also my noodles... More

Stayed here 2-3 weeks after traveling round the world. I have stayed in world class resorts and simple bungalows. My priorities were beach access and low price. Castaways delivered on both. Wow. Nothing like stepping out of your bungalow onto sand, then into the Gulf of Thailand in under a minute. Would I stay again? If two things were fixed.... More

This is a very lovely low key place just on the beach. The beach is great and the sunset beautiful. The staff is also very nice and our kids loved to play with their kids all day . We wanted to stay longer but we only stayed 2 nights as it was really noisy from 6 in the morning because... More

First it seemed like a nice bungalow to stay with reasonable price (25 USD), so we took it. It was a terrible mistake though! There were no sheets on the bed, so we had to ask for them at the reception for three times to get them. Finally we got a sheet which was way too small for the double... More

This place had a great vibe upon arrival and I knew I had to stay there. I didn't leave the area for days because they had everything I needed: delicious food, yummy drinks, the best beach location and a family environment that makes you feel like you are at home. The bungalows are basic and well maintained and there are... More

If you're thinking about coming to Otres Beach, Sihanoukville, you will have a choice of many guesthouses.You will have to sieve through ones that charge too much for what they offer, places that play bad music all day and night, and places that have easy access for thieves. Through trial and error with other places, I finally found this gem..Stayed... More

I was there in September/October 2014 and it was one of the most wonderful acommodations I ever had on my travels. Castaways is run by very friendly, funny and helpful Khmer people, who care a lot for the wellbeing and safety of their guests. The bungalows are rustic and clean, they are located very next to the ocean. While falling... More

this place is perfect if you accept stay in more basic accommodation. The family who runs it is super friendly although sometimes they hang out a bit to much around your room. There is almost no place in the world as close to the beach as this one as it is almost in the sea
