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

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

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

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

My wife and I stayed at Castaways for five nights, and wish we'd stayed longer. We loved it. First, about the actual bungalows. They're basic, very basic. You get a bed, some mosquito netting, and a very basic toilet, sink, and shower. It's "rustic" to say the least, but it's clean, it's right on the beach, and it works for... More

This was definitely one of the most memorable stays (6 nights) we ever had ! Stay with a very nice and helpful Khmer family of 6 (an extra one is on the way). Ox, the owner, is a super helpful bloke who is interested in you and the culture you live in at home but also very concerned/compassionate about your... More
