We stayed at the Victory Beach Hotel 2 adult and 2 children (5 and 3 years) for 3 nights in january 2012 (Chinese new-year holiday). It was a fantastic stay and extremely good value for money! We enjoyed it a lot and would recommend it to anybody (except those wanting massive action around the corner and a lot of noise)
The beach outside is not perfect but it is nice to have and the children (and the parents!) enjoyed it a lot for playing. For us it was a special feature that the restaurant and the water is separated by a small wall. During the day you just jump over it get to the beach and water but when eating outside in the restaurant the 3 meter sand between the restaurant and the wall becomes a fantastic playground with makes it possible to enjoy the rest of the wine viewing the sun down while the kids are playing…
For swimming and sun tanning a much better beach is located only 10 min. walk away with sun beds, sun umbrellas and nice beach cafés with very nice food (turn right at “the white rabbit”). This beach is nice and quiet without too many people and without all the annoying hectic which can be found in Sihanoukville.
The hotel is very nice. Nice staff which is helpful and friendly. There is no elevator but I guess not many people needs it and the staff is helpful to carry all the luggage up the stairs. The first night we had a normal room which was fine. The last two nights we had the family suites. If you are a family or just like space and view – these rooms are incredible! Huge room with direct view of the sun down from wall to wall. Effective air-con.
The restaurant is also something special. Not one of those standard medium ok ones with mediocore food. Fantastic food with good variety and very tasty and very nice wines – all to affordable prices. We like delicate food and wanted to try some of the other local restaurants, but ended up eating in the hotel restaurant all evenings as all the different food showed to be fantastic. E.g. the kids meal are made from fresh ingredients and not like many other restaurant where it is some processed chicken nugget. The breakfast is fine and it was nice to be able to get a real cup of quality coffee.
The service at the Hotel is fantastic. A many other Tripadvisor contributors mention we also salute Vivi and her all-in friendliness. But the rest of the staff is also nice.
The hotel is situated around 15-20 min with tuk-tuk from Sihanoukville. We only went there for a short stop. 40 min drive from the hotel is small but nice water fall which is an attraction for the locals. We thought it was a great spot to see. If you are going to Siam Reap it is worth mentioning that a direct flight (45 min) from Sihanoukville to Siam Reap is available. It only takes ~15 from the hotel to the airport.
The hotel was newly re-opened when we were there and yes it could be seen in a room next to the reception that they were renovating a little. But this did in no way disturb our stay as the work was hidden.
All in all a fantastic stay. We stayed there 3 nights, had breakfast and dinner (incl. wine) at the hotel all days, stayed 2 of the night in the huge suite and ended up paying ~370 USD. A bargain!!
