Nice and friendly staff. Really helpful boss! He was very polite and took care of many of my issues himself. We felt welcomed at all points. Spacious and clean rooms. Scooter rental was fair and good. We can highly recommend this place but you will Need some vehicle to get to the beaches...

We stayed here 3 nights in total at the Macara Bungalows and felt really welcomed and treated well. The Boss/owner himself took care of Mandy things, was really helpful and polite. We only made very good experiences with the kindness of the staff, Scooter rental and our nice and clean room!

This is my third stay in Makara, first at the new location. It has improved a lot. The new rooms are much better, rooms are comfortable, they even have a pool nowadays! Rooms are cleaned everyday, you don't have to ask for it. The premises are cleaned several times a day. In all everything is very well kept.

we stayed there for only a couple of nights before moving to Otres beach for 2 years in a row. Clean rooms, friendly stuff. Very pleasant stay. We have also stayed in the old Makara guesthouse before, and it's quite a change, since a year before!

Perfect for what we needed. Extremely affordable, partnered with a clean and friendly service. Location is great, with only 10 minute walk to main restaurant and pub street. Could hire bikes but as it was raining we just used our 2 nights to relax. Pool is great as well. The restaurant food was the best we had in Sihanoukville. Would... More
