The website was nice and the booking seemed okay, we even called to confirm and ask a few questions. By chance, we were here at the Chinese New Year, which in honesty may have had some affect on our unpleasant experience. We arrived after dark on the late bus. The restaurant was closed. Our bungalow was very basic. The walls... More

The couple of days we spent at Malibu were very enjoyable. We were a family group looking for peace and quiet in restful, pleasant surroundings. We found it at Malibu, in full measure. The first impression was of quiet order and neatness, we received a warm welcome and were shown to our bungalows through the well-kept gardens (lawns even). The... More

We stayed there 2 nights in September 2014. Our visit fell on one of big Khmer holidays, so hotel was pretty booked. First day we stayed in the room with no A/C, just fan. We looked them up via agoda, and it said it was a double room with fan. When we arrived they showed us a room with 3(!)... More

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

The pool area is ok,nothing special and the breakfast is some bread with a bit of fruit and coffee. I cannot understand how this can be ranked... 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
