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

We read good reviews about the place and tried checking it. It looks like the place has been build 15 years ago and no one did any maintenances or cleaning since then. It feels like a rat could came out from any hole at any moment! In addition we wanted a room for two. Their offered us either a room... More

Myself and my boyfriend planned to stay here for just one night to see Otres 2 and relax, but we loved it so much here we stayed three nights. We payed $15 a night for a bungalow right on the beach front. There are shared bathrooms and toilets and no hot water, but who cares your living on the beach!... More

The bungalows are extremely basic. Mossi nets in rooms but they are kinda worn with some holes. Clean sheets, bathrooms good. Friendly staff... very relaxed. Don't expect anything to be quick, ever... it's very relaxed. #5 is right in front of the owners residence I think, so small children yelling kinda woke us up in the morning... but it wasn't... More

We have never put in our description anything about a pool or fitness centre (though we do have two dumbbells now). And who needs a pool when the Gulf of Thailand is a few steps outside your front door? More

I stayed here for one night. I was charged $5 for a tent, which I felt was a bit steep considering there were dorms further along for $6. There aren't any showers, only big bowls of water, but it was fine for one night. The menu is more expensive than the other restaurants and I ate in Footprints further along... More

yes, there's a big bowl of water in the same room as the shower,but you should have asked and someone would have shown you the blue pipe with the faucet and shower head on the outside wall. We're glad you had a nice stay at Castaways though. Thank you for your review. More

If you don't want to get robbed, then don't come to this place. Staff are thief's. Had my phone stolen right out of the bungalow when going for supper. Only people that knew we were going, and about the window that could not be locked properly, were the staff sitting ominously beside our place all night. When I reported it,... More

You are accusing me and my family (who are my staff) of theft, but we are honest people and would never steal from a guess. I remember that you forgot your bags on the tuktuk that brought you here, and you forgot the towel (two, actually) on the island trip you booked. At the time you claim your phone was... More

I booked a room at Castaways after reading about it here on TA - and to get away from all the tourists and noise for a couple of days. Couldn't have been better. A driver picked me up from the bus station and I got a basic but comfortable upstairs room with mattress, fan and locker. Shared shower and toilet... More

I called Mr. Ox two days before we came down to Otres from Phnom Penh. He said he had two rooms available and would reserve them for us. But when we arrived he did not have the rooms. He is very disorganized with lots of books that he writes things in. He seems to be a bit confused most of... More

Lying at the far end of Otres Beach, they couldn't have picked a better spot to build their simple bungalows. The sunsets are amazing and the water is fantastic. Unfortunately they didn't put much effort into the construction of their buildings nor the maintenance of their property. The family who own and run the place are decent and the food... More

It's no accident we couldn't have picked a better spot. Castaways was the first resort in this area of Otres, long before any other, so it's natural we would have picked the very best spot. thank you for your review. Please come and visit us again. We have built some newer bungalows by the way; but still rustic and authentic... More
