Decent place, excellent attention from the staff. Quiet and cozy and really close to the crab market. Stayed in room 1 with no issues related to smells as someone commented. The pool is good enough and the 6 sunchairs were never all taken. Were there during khmer new years which means it's supposed to be crowded but fortunately was not.... More

MeaLea has been a highlight of our 2 month travels in Thailand and Cambodia. Huge room with double and single four poster super comfortable beds. Private terrace to each room with its own little lily pond. Swimming pool overlooking the ocean and minutes away from the crab market. Very well maintained place, lovely exotic gardens, room cleaned and fresh towels... More

Staff is helpful and very kind. The location is great. Definitively, I recommend it and I will stay there next time I go... More

We booked a last minute deal on Agoda. The small bungalow hotel seemed quite deserted with only one other guest as far as we could tell. As we were leaving, I locked the bathroom door (the bathrooms do not have roofs and there are no safe in the room) but was astonished to learn that it could not be unlocked... More

Resort has a new owner since a few months which seem to have changed things for the better. The location is great, walking distance (at least for Dutch distances) to the crab market en Kep beach. Resort has a nice pool and a kind of "beach" (just across the road, nice for sunsets and a drink). The "beach" is more... More

This charming, small boutique get-a-way has recently changed owners and has been renamed as Mea Lea Resort. The rooms are comfortable and vert clean and the staff is super friendly. Plus, the location unbeatable for Kep, just a short walk to the Crab Market

This hotel has a great location and could have so much going for it as it is opposite a little beach and the crab markets. But it feels like no one cares. Staff that weren't very helpful, a room with a very smelly bathroom and brown water, a bright green pool that you couldn't swim in (and one of the... More

The hotel is small but very welcoming and the rooms are big and spacious (we stayed in one of the red clay ones), there is a small but sufficient pool and an open restaurant area. The hotel is situated across the road from the 'private beach' (really a sandy topped sea wall with some tables and chairs) which is a... More

We didn't like Kep at all. It's really run down and the beaches are a mess with litter everywhere. The sea is murky. There are stray dogs everywhere. We understand that Cambodia is in a big transition in terms of tourism. However, Kep is nowhere near ready yet! If you like it back to basics and don't mind not having... More
