This guesthouse is situated very near to the beach which is itself very calm (calmer than the city center of sihanoukville). The staff is friendly, the rooms are simple but correct and cheap. Even in the rainy season we found a good atmosphere : you can borrow books and games. The place is just perfect !

The food is amazing, carrot cake, crumpets, etc. The staff are really nice and hard working. The people that stay are all relaxed, friendly and happy. Some people get trapped there and end up staying for weeks instead of days because they enjoy it so much. I loved my stay @ Wish 😀. Thanks so much!

If you dig great atmosphere, cozy couches, great food, friendly staff, reggae/soul/funk/indie/world tunes this is the place to be (particularly if you enjoy an alternative vibe). Only a 30 second walk across the road to the beach. Don't miss the sunsets! Mind blowing. We stayed in a private bungalow and it was worth the few extra dollars for a bit... More

Stayed here for 4 nights and was raining every day but due to the amazing atmosphere and decor we managed to waste our days away at this place. Probably tried half the menu and it was all exceptional! Nice little double room. The fish tank next to the bar is cool. Would recommend this to anyone.

TL;DR - excellent rustic hotel, great location, friendly staff, well priced food and drinks We stayed two nights and were instantly impressed with the great location just 30 metres away from Otres beach, the friendly staff, the beautiful wooden building and the awesome communal bar/restaurant area. We stayed in a twin room which was spacious, didn't have aircon but a... More

I actually visited Wish You Were Here three times during my stay at Otres Beach - it was just that good! Every day brings a new offer on meals and usually the option to accompany them with a horrendously cheap drink is available! I have tried the burgers, nachos, soft-taco and their incredible 'sweet tooth' quesadilla and I found them... More

We went to Otres Beach (Sihanoukville) and thought we would stay for a couple of days... We ended up spending ten days there! A lot thanks to the lovely bungalow we stayed at, at Wish You Were Here. The location is very good, just across the road from the beach. (Though it is 7km to Sihanoukville, which is the city!... More

This place is perfect, mellow, chilled, and extremely comfy. Staff is very friendly and helpful, most clientele is on the same path too :) Great music selection, incredibly cute dogs (Mom and a grown up puppy) The Khmer food they serve is amazing, the breakfasts are delicious, Burgers and fries are FANTASTIC. (Veggie, Beef or Fish - all good)
