Turn off the music! For at least a couple of hours a day! To be fair, noise is a huge problem in the area. I won't come back to sihnoukville for that very reason. The clubs on the beach play music until 5am but at least they don't start until 10pm. At 9am this place hauls out gigantic speakers and begins to play bass thumping music that be heard many hotels. You cannot find peace anywhere near the beach at night in sihanoukville and thanks to The Cove Beach Bugalows, you can't find it during the day either.

If you plan on staying here or pretty much anywhere else in the immediate vicinity, be prepared for loud, obnoxious music coming from their outside bar starting a 9AM. With the bass being the prominent feature. Trying to sleep in or read a book on your porch or just relax in peace in the area, inside OR outside is nearly impossible sometimes. And after a polite request to at least have them turn down the music was ignored/refused, we decided to leave Sihanoukville altogether. So much for listening to the sound of the ocean. Enjoy techno or Jack Johnson at an obscenely loud volume instead.

The location is good, central but quiet. The staff was very nice, informative and helpful. The room itself was simple, not very clean. The bathroom could use some work.. It was quite old, and there isn't really a shower stall but just a shower head in the bathroom.
All in all it's nice but compared with other places I've stayed at during my trip to south east Asia the value for money was not high.

the rooms are clean, comfy and got what you need to keep you happy. aircon tv fans beds showers blah blah stuff! the cabins were cool but basic built. i liked that. felt more lost islandy.

but rooms are rooms, you dont wanna remember rooms. the experience is what its about and this place was just too dam GOOD!

the crew who work here are amazing and one of the big draws for me. a really fun group of people, amazingly friendly and helpful and above all genuine. talked for hours with them.
the food was brilliant, and there is a killer grass hut styled bar down by the ocean, i fell in love.
if you wanted you could very happily stay a week just at that bar and feel satisfied when you got home. just over eating, boozing, talking, relaxing and havin fun with the locals and tourists alike.

your also a little away from the main party beach. you can see it and stumble there and back noo hastle but your rooms not shaking with bass drops when you hit the pillow.

my stay here will be one i wont forget.

The bed wasn't comfortable, and for the same price, we were able to get a larger, more comfortable room for a fraction of the cost. The door must have warped in the weather, because I couldn't actually lock (close) the door - my companion figured out some little trick to get it to stay closed. Mats aren't shaken out, so when you think you're wiping your feet to keep the floor clean, you're actually getting them dirtier. We ended up paying for the two nights, but not staying the second night. Something else to keep in mind: don't take heavy luggage! There are many steps, and precarious ones. The breakfast was okay. Bartender gave us a lot of advice that didn't prove correct in the end, but I won't judge the hotel on that. I'll judge it on the fact that it was hard to sleep and spread out luggage in such a tiny space. Pretty view from the balcony, though.

Tucked away in scenic corner of the beach, the staff can't do enough for you, totally made me feel at home, Nick the manager is a wealth of information and went out of his way to make sure my stay was hassle free, so i could enjoy what Sihanoukville had to offer,
