The Cambodian Resort was just fine, however just because it has a pool and gym this does not a resort make. It is really just a hotel.
We stayed mid May and the low season and there were only 3 or 4 rooms being used, so very quiet, we had the pool area to ourselves most days, the same as for breakfast.
Check in and out was good, just a little consternation at check in as they couldn't find our booking, funny that, there were only a handfull of other people staying at the hotel, however it got sorted very quickly. Staff through the hotel are great, cheerful and a ready smile all the time, and forever cleaning, but then again with only four rooms being taken up I guess there was little else for them to do.
Great gym, perhaps the best I have come across at a hotel, but I did discover they have gym membership for locals, so perhaps that's why it is so good.
7 minutes walk to the beach and tuktuk transport outside the hotel all the time to take you anywhere in Sihanoukville for a small fee.
Room was large and clean, overlooking the large pool area, water pressure in the shower ok, water just warm, but sufficient to do the job. No soap bar(s), but we always carry a small bar for these situations. There is a soap dispenser in the shower, but nothing in the sink area.
Breakfast was iffy, and not a great selection, but they did say due to low season they catered on demand, I guess a la carte, so we ordered eggs as we wanted and took the rest of the small selection as we required. It was ok, sufficient for our needs.
So what were the bad points, on two of the three days we were woken by room service wanting to clean our rooms at around 8.30am. Huh??? With only 4 rooms being used hardly a pressing need to get rooms cleaned. Not as if there was going to be hordes checking in.
And there is a noise problem from the Golden Lion Plaza right next store. This is a group of night clubs and the deep boom boom boom from the music does permiate into the hotel. Ear plugs did help (always take ear plugs on holiday). Remember we were in the off season and not many people around, I can imagine the noise in the high season coming from this place. Our last evening was the final of the European football Cup and the noise was excessive.
Not withstanding the noise, the hotel was good to stay at and would reccommend and (with earplugs) would stay here if we found ourselves in Sihanoukville again.
