just come back form Sihanouk ville, staying at Makara Bungalows/guesthouse. Nice rooms, clean, comfortable with TV, fridge, safe, WiFi etc, everything you need for a comfortable stay. Only problem is if your looking for a sleep in the morning then maybe it's not for you. Every morning around 6;30am the kids from all the bungalows come out and play in... More

We arrived in Sihanoukville without any accommodation, so asked the first Tuk-tuk guy to find us a place near the beach. As he pulled up outside Makara bungalows a staff member come out to greet us and take our bags. Really nice place, and for $ 25 per night I snapped up the last room. Short walking distance to the...

We stayed here for 2 nights, the bungalows themselves are great, looking out into a nice little pool, the whole area is enclosed and gated at night, there is a little office and restaurant on site as well. The rooms were nice with good aircon and wifi and a decent enough shower. The position of the hotel meant tuk-tuk trips... More

I was not happy when first arrived as I felt we were far from the main part of town which turned out to be a 2 minute Tuk Tuk ride ( which are always out the front of the hotel so no dramas) or a really nice 10 minute walk along the beach which I loved. The beach is one... More

Very helpful and friendly staff, always eager to assist! The owner has managed to set up a very competitive operation for The price of a backpackers. One big plus is the proximity to town and Ocheurteal beach.

Everything about the hotel is good. The service is exceptional and the owner is very involved with making sure your stay here is well. While there are a lot of hotels in walking distance from the beach, this hotel's location is exceptional. It's far from the hustle and bustle of the beach because it's located on the quieter side and... More

I was staying one night there (on my way to Kep): nice complex with only, if I remember right, 14 rooms placed around the pool. Rooms are nice. I did not have breakfast, so I can not judge this. Within one minute you're down at the ocean. I'd rather not stay again in Sihanoukville. But if so, Makara Bungalow would... More

The owner and staff are quite friendly, and its a short tuk tuk ride away from the center of town ($1 consistently for the 1km ride if your good at negotiating... $3-5 if your not). You can hire a scooter from the reception for $5 for 24hrs. I wouldn't exactly say the place resembles my idea of being bungalows, and... More
