Lovely hotel, great service, smiling staff. Lovely pool w/ great sea view. Breakfasts could be upped a notch or two and they need to consider offering options for guests staying multiple days so that the same breakfast is not repeated each morning. Great value for the rate charged. Two thumbs up!

Being under new management it had to make its mark again and it has made an impact on me, the one place where i felt really well looked after without losing any privacy. The staff is lovely, friendly and helpful. The rooms are beautiful in a colonial style (very spacious with one double bed and a single one), very clean... More

I had stayed At the Mealea Resort several Times when it was The Champey Inn. It is under new ownership and back to its full glory. Rooms are fantastic and the bathroooms are the coolest I have seen out side but inside. The Grounds are covered in sweet smelling flowers. And is located 30 feet from the sea, 500 ft... More

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

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
