I spent some time hanging out at both Mushroom Points the other day. Both of them are at Otres Beach. One's on the beach and the other is just across the road. My personal preference is for the one that's not on the beach because I love its garden setting. You can always wander across the road and hang out at the beach when you feel like it, but since I can do that any time, it's no novelty to me. Since you can have the best of both worlds in a unique setting at Mushroom Point, I give it 4 stars.

What a little gem! Huts shaped like mushrooms! Not only is this place quirky but also fantastic too! There are two locations - one next to the beach, the other nottoo far away. The food is great here and value for money. Location wise is a matter of preference. We were looking for a place secluded and got it. Its just a grand place to chill out after the city life. Highly recommended especially for large groups. Chill out lounge is ace. Love this place!!!

What a nice surprise: the owner of the mushroom point really put some effort into these two locations (opposite of each other). They are very comfortable and clean places to hang out and the personnel is super friendly. The food is very nice too. Perfect for a couple of days of relaxing!

We stayed for three whole days. Really relaxed, good food and nice people. Especially the girl and guy at the beach bar of the Mushroom and the owner! The guy at the beach bar can also tell you a lot about animals and the way you should take care of it. We would like to stay longer although an airplane was waiting. But certainly go there!!!

We stayed 3 nights at Mushroom Point GuestHouse, on the beach (this is the new part of the guesthouse, the old part with dorms and some bungalows is in the main street, very close by). It is a very nice place, the design of the bungalows is very funky, and the mushroom theme works well. The owners are really nice people, very friendly and laid-back. They clean the room every day. They have an excellent restaurant in the main "Mushroom Point" location, which we highly recommend. The bar by the beach is also very nice. However, it must be said we didn't have a comfortable stay.

The interior of the bungalows is not very well designed. The bed is on the floor, with a semi-moon design, with an uncomfortable mattress, covered by a mosquito net the whole time which means you cannot sit or relax on the bed. First because you have to kneel down and it's very annoying. Secondly, there is not a chair or a stool to sit down, so you have to do it on the floor. For us the worse was the heat. There is a fan on top of the "mushroom roof", but it is very badly positioned because the air doesn't reach the bed. It was the wet season, we cannot think how someone can sleep in there during the dry season. It should be positioned in front of the bed, it would make a huge difference. We couldn't rest at all. There is a "mushroom lamp" next to the bed, but you cannot switch it off because of the mosquito net, meaning you have to lift it up to do it and leaving enough time and space for the mosquitos to come in. There were 3 "mushroom bathrooms" for 5 bungalows, which is not bad, but when you pay $22 per night in Cambodia, you expect to have your own one.

Unfortunately, the Mushroom Point doesn't quite live up to its billing. After 3 nights there, we simply didn't feel rested, as the bungalow was so uncomfortable. With a few changes to the design, this could be an excellent place to stay.

We stayed in a double mushroom on the beach (same company I think)for 2 nights. Fell asleep to the sound of the waves.Gorgeous swim in the sea. We paid $20 a night as we stayed during a quite time and more than 1 night. Room has a fan and mosquito net. Our room was swept, beds made and towels changed daily. The toilet facilities are in the middle of the cluster of mushrooms. The beach bar is really atmospheric with good but calm trendy music. We ate at the other mushroom point quite a bit and I must saw that they've the best breadrolls I've ever had. Still dreaming of them now! They also helped organise buses, moto's and our trip to the island of Ko ta Kiev (stayed at Ten 103 treehouse for 1 night). Do not pay more than $4-6 to get out to Otres during the day. Those bus station tuk-tuks will rip you off. $10 I think not! Very impressed with Mushroom Point :)

This place is cool. The staff are great and the guy who runs the place is really nice. The bunglows are amazing. The bathrooms are outside your little mushroom house and obversely it's sandy.
They have a safety box in your room and you can put stuff behind the bar if you're really worried because, even though you have a lock on your room if someone really wanted to they could get in. But, I think with most places it's like that really.
You go to Otres beach because you want the experience and you get it here. The Bar on the beach is so nice. They have good music playing not pumping out the latest pop junk which was a winner for us.
We loved this place. Only stayed for one day because we had to make our way to the next place. We found it hard to leave this place.
