The island is like paradise: beautiful, clean, quiet! The bungalows are perfectly located, directly next to the white sand beach. However, the staff is different from what we experienced otherwise: When we arrived, nobody welcomed us or helped us with our luggage. At breakfast there was always something essential missing and we had to wait. At the day of departure breakfast wasn’t ready at all (at 7.15!), coffee was cold and the dirty plates from the night before stood around. The table covers we got were dirty. To get cocktails in the evening we had to wait up to 30 minutes but not because there were too many others! We were the only ones. Generally speaking, eating there is not really nice or inviting. Staff prefers to look into their mobiles instead of serving the customer. But fortunately there are a lot of other restaurants around. Room and room service were ok. I would say that a price of 100-120 Dollars is ok, i wouldn’t pay more!

Stayed for three nights with my adult daughter in a bungalow in the second row. I was downstairs in the very comfortable double bed with lots of pillows. My daughter was upstairs and tolerated the additional heat up there. We did have a fridge in our room. We used the air conditioning in the room. There is also a fan. The cleaning is good. Sometimes not hot water in the shower as in most places in Cambodia. I had a fantastic pedicure for $2 and we had a number of massages which were all good. The beach is gorgeous, the water is very shallow so you have to walk far out to swim. I thought the manager was exceptionally helpful - gave good guidance about facilities and trips and ensured our speed boat ferry away from the island functioned well despite the choppy water conditions on the morning we left. We thought the breakfast was good with lots of choice. We thought the lunch/dinner choices were unremarkable and this area of service can be improved. We also thought guests could be encouraged away from placing towels on unused beach chairs for hours, restricting choice for other guests.

Our starting point for this visit was not optimal. My boyfriend had become sick in the previous accommodation and he was really tired when the boat docked to Sanloem pier. But what a welcome: we were greeted at the pier, taken by a little boat to the hotel, and while our bags were carried to the bungalow, we received a welcome drink and neck massage! After that we were shown to the bungalow, were he could take a warm bath and I started to admire the surroundings. The view from the ocean front bungalow was magnificent, and everything we needed was within 20 meters: the turquoise ocean, the hotel bar and the sunbeds on the white sand. Perfect. Compared to Koh Rong, this island is peaceful and clean. Sol Beach had very friendly personnel, the bungalows were clean and there was even a well, so no problems with water. You can even throw toilet paper to the toilet! Nice breakfast and good drinks. The location was also optimal close to the center of the Saracen bay. Warm recommendation for paradise-seekers!

During our trip to Cambodia (Siam Reap, Phnom Penh) we decided to spend 2 nights on this beautiful island. Its a bit of a hustle to get there. We took a speedboat from Sihanoukville to the island. Capacity of this boat to travel in comfort is about 25 people, however they allow double as many. On top of that you will travel with bags of food and things that are needed on the small island. Arriving at the island after a 45 minutes boat ride there was a small boat that took us to the hotel which was only a 10 minutes ride. The island is beautiful, there is not high rise, no concrete buildings. Sold beach resort has about 15 wood bungalows on the beach. The boat driver will help you with your luggage. Upon arrival you get a free neck massage. Check in is smooth. Bungalows are nice and clean. We had a 2 floor bungalow with 2 double beds. There is no TV in the rooms but who needs a TV when you are meters away from a crystal clear beach. What is missing though is a refrigerator or mini bar. I understand the island has problems with power supply so sometimes power goes off but comes back within seconds. 4G is not working on the island and the hotel wifi is not stable. Breakfast was ok but nothing special. We did not dinner in the restaurant because we thought there was a bit of lack of atmosphere. There are no taxis or tuk tuks on the island. You just walk on the beach to neighbouring hotels and restaurants. There are a couple of little shops nearby where you can buy drinks, cigarettes, snacks, etc... There are no ATM machines on the island so prepare cash. The hotel however accepts credit cards. They offer all kind of good and cheap massages at the hotel. They will also help you to book tours and boat trips. We took a private boat one afternoon to go snorkeling, fishing and see the sunset for only 50 US$.

If you've decided to go to Koh Rong Samloem with childen (you should!) and you want a resort-ish vibe to your accommodation, this might be your spot. We spent five nights in a second row villa which was clean and large enough for us. It gets hot under the roof though and the fan installed up there is on an impossible mission. Not a deal breaker though. The hotel is suited right on the beach and we enjoyed our stay there very much. I would be happy to give the helpful and friendly staff five stars if it wasn't for the the overall impression of the restaurant and the staff there. The service was extremely slow and waiters had a careless approach that bothered me. Phone notifications were going off in the pocket of our waiter at least every twenty seconds, which is bound to drive you insane at some point and not what you'd expect at a resort with this price point. Food was okay but nothing more. I'm sorry about this negative feedback because the cleaning staff and the boat captain were all excellent and very helpful. I do recommend staying here but some areas could easily be tightened up.
