The beach is amazing, and probably worth all the hassle of getting there (3-4 hour boat ride) and staying in those huts. The negative reviews worried us, but it's really not so bad. The staff were nice and drinks good (not much more expensive than on main land). The huts are very basic, but I wouldn't say they are in bad shape (maybe they renovated?). If you want better huts, try the resort next door, although the beach is not as good there. If you want a really nice beach, walk 30 mins down the beach to the middle of nowhere. This is one of the most beautiful beaches I've ever seen!
What I didn't appreciate is that they changed the departure of the boat from morning to afternoon (which messed with our itinerary) and we only found out because we emailed 2 days before to confirm our reservation. Also, the 1st night they gave us the smallest huts. When I asked why we couldn't get the other empty huts, they said those are for customers who booked offline. So I recommend booking in Sihanoukville, not by email. If you do, ask for a big hut.
Despite this, overall it was a nice experience and I don't think the place deserves such bad reviews. Just don't expect much for 20 bucks on a remote island and you will be happy :)
