“Nice staff, ok location, dark bungalow”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2012

Coaster's was OK, largely because of the location on the beach and the nice staff. We had a bungalow with no view which was pretty dark inside and not very clean. Sihanoukville wasn't our favorite place in general, but if you want a place on Serendipity Beach, this one is OK. The restaurant was good. Sadly, the beach was too polluted to make us want to go swimming here (or anywhere along this beach).

Room smelt musty, just about clean, decor and shower room not just tired, they were exhausted, which is what we were when we arrived late after a 14 hour bus trip from Siem Reap. So we stayed the night and next day found 'Above us only sky' so checked out. The staff were not interested, didnt seem to notice we had been at all. We wanted a few days rest and rrelaxation in a lovely room with a balcony, Coasters was not it. Overpriced

Coasters was a last choice for us, a lot I'd other places being fully booked. We stayed two nights for usd$25. Rooms were very basic,
- sheets had holes and pillows were lumpy - and overpriced, location is quiet but couldn't actually swim at the dirty, boulder strewn strip of beach out the front. Food was average and overpriced, but for me it was the service that was their downfall. We had laundry done here even though it was pricier than around town. On the morning we left we were given our wash and I found my own expensive bra was missing and another was in it's place. I know mix ups can happen but from the staffs reaction it was obvious that it had been intentionally swapped with a similar one hoping I wouldn't notice. We had 15 minutes till our bus to leave arrived and they were only willing to give 6 dollars as recompense. In all my travels all over Asia ive not met more dishonest people and I'm not one who usually writes reviews. There are plenty of better options on serendipity.

Very expensive place, but the location cannot be beaten in Serendipity Beach. Right on the water. We were able to haggle the price down a bit, but it was still a bit to pricey

Got into the town around 9pm at night after a bus trip taking almost twice as long as it displayed, checked out a couple of places but they were both full so ended up at Coasters. Padlocked bungalow which was overpriced and small compared to what else was available with no view. Good location however with a short walk to the main beach, restuarants and bars.

Wound NOT stay again...

First impressions - staff lovely. We booked a sea view bungalow (5 nights) knowing we we're going back to basics but this WAS disgusting!!!
We got shown to our room and it was dark,damp and about a million different stains - all different colours. On a positive note, the view was amazing (Serendipity beach however, is not a nice beach...rampant dogs and being hassled every two minutes) We only stayed one night because that was enough and my girlfriend couldn't take any more. We booked into a new hotel which was not quite finished but still a million times better and only $5 more a night!!!!
I wouldn't normally advise anyone not to go somewhere but don't stay here.

what a joke! The room that is advertised at sea view is blocked by other bungalows (I stayed in no 7). The bathroom was not clean and had stains everywhere...the bed sheets still had some kind of little stains on them..and within 24hrs i had a huntsman crawl in my room, a pet frog in my bathroom and was eaten alive by mozzies. I'm now staying in a $8 hostel up the road where i have hot and cold water in my shower, a tv and is much cleaner than coasters! The only thing Coasters had going for it is that its right on the beach when you walk out. your money is definitely spent elsewhere for what you get

Room Tip: there are so many hostels down here that are not advertised..don't book one..just come down and...
