When we arrived there with my friend we were really excited. The photos we have seen were really beautiful, so we were expecting to pass all of our time around the pool. When we arrived there it was really different from what we've seen, and not a good different. First of all, there as no reception, so we had to... More

We really loved this place nearby Crab Market in Kep. The bungalow we stayed at had 2 rooms, 2 private bathrooms and a nice hall. The service was outstanding. We have stayed in Malibu for 3 nights, enjoying beautiful garden and nice swimming pool. Would recommend for anyone wishing to explore the area. We also rented motorbikes to visit Kampot... More

Though our expectations were not high coming in and though the people here are lovely, so I hate to write a negative review, i simply cant write a good one. We had an air conditioned bungalow, the room itself was nice. The bed was comfortable (the pillows are unusable though like 1ft tall and hard) the room was clean and... More

So the place looks nice but it not well maintained. Doors dont close properly, generator is noisy, pool water has a weird color. So overall very average. The lack of proper care and maintenance is probably due to the fact that the French 'owner' is renting out the place and running it. It feels like it is not loved or... More

Probably the most frustrating aspect of this hotel is that with a bit of investment and good management, it could be a delightful property. The facilities have great potential. . . pleasantly rustic style bungalows that COULD (but certainly do not) rival those in unique upscale resorts. The pool area was lovely with lots of very shady places to sit... More

Nice gardens with a nice pool here. Some of the linen on the mattresses in the sun shelters around the pool could do with an upgrade as they are tired, worn and stained. We found the staff pleasant and Eric was quite friendly. Nice simple breakfast with fresh coffee and fresh fruit. There was a question over the hygiene and... More

We stayed in this resort for 7 nights and we really loved it. We were happy with the location as we looked for a quiet place. We enjoyed our lovely bungalow, the breakfasts and the outstanding swimming pool. The staff was pleasant and helpful.

We felt overall that this was a very lazy place. Our room was tired with not enough lighting to read with and a bare bulb hanging in the bathroom. A bit grim. The pool area is nice, but it feels as if no one is really trying here. Our experience of service has been exceptional in Cambodia but here we... More
