Extremely poor accomodation. Room was full of insects. Door handle broken, no water, no electricity broken lamp, no mosquito net, no pool cleaning. One of the workers used a high pressure spray and all the dirt was floating for three days in and around the pool. Aggressive dogs walking around. Far out of town. About 2 km from the main... More

I stayed there for 3 nights, and on arrival realised that this wouldn't work for me, however I had already paid it all in full. On booking, the photos looked really nice and the location looked good too, however it turned out to be really far from the Crab Market, or Kep beach. Count around 2km to either places. So... More

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

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

I stayed here for a weekend ended up leaving one day early as I couldn't sleep in the "bungalow" provided anymore. The bungalow we had smelled musty and the linen was not clean. 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
