“Getaway from it all”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2013

After the hassle and madness of Serindipity beach Papa Pippo's is an oasis of calm. Wonderful staff and owners, great pasta, great coffee and simple clean bungalows. One plus is it's the last resort on the beach and feels like its the only place there also no hassles from the beach sellers and no beggars. Definitely the most serene spot on the beach.

what a combo! beach, food, relaxed people. whilst the accom is rudimentary, the location and staff (and their food!) make more than up for it. we had a good look around before we picked this location; it's hard (if not impossible) to beat!

I didn't stay there but I would patiently wait for them to open every morning to get my coffee. This place is like the church of coffee - for those who like the stuff. The food - Italian - is also surprisingly excellent for a restaurant right on the beach.

We didn't actually stay at papa pippos as we were on a tight budget but the bungalows looked lovely and the location was perfect being right on the beach.

We did however go here for breakfast every morning and ate there at night a few times and we were very impressed. The coffee was perfect and the pizza was delicious and although its a little pricier than the other places on otres it's definitely worth it.

Papa Pippo is definitely a place I would stay in again - if I am lucky and smart enough to book in advance - because they are normally full as there are many people who have eyes and common sense and can compare and understand that Papa Pippo is better and nicer than many other places on Otres beach. The people that run it are very friendly and will definitely help you and inform you of openings. There's no online booking - but this is normal for Cambodia, and you are to just show up and see when and what is available.
Their coffee.... Mmmm... they brought an Italian coffee machine, and I am fully addicted now. Really good. Italian food. Chill music - always somehow very appropriate - even when not as chill any more - you know, when it's not too loud, not too quiet, not too intense - just perfect? somehow their atmosphere is just right. They are working hard on it. Unlike many other places, really trying to make it right.
In fact, my two sisters are staying there at the moment - this was the first place I thought they would love - when they came to see me (and explore Cambodia) for 2 weeks. And they are very happy with my choice. They tried to find a nicer place )))) Just because of how one of them is ("there always must be something better") - and their unanimous resolution was - Papa Pippo is the best. It is )))
And they haven't filled all the space they have with bungalows - and you actually have a view - and some open space - a lot, actually - (everybody else only gives you a tiny section of the sea, and it's somehow cramped). They are at the end of Otres 1 - very convenient location - next to the open stretch that you can walk and get to Otres 2. There are power outages (to make it impartial and honest, and so that you knew what to expect) - but this is common for everybody else on the beach as well - and they have a generator, and it is definitely worth checking out.
oh - and in the morning - you wake up and you realize why you needed a vacation from youк routine. It's amazing. (and they have a swing :) that you can lay in and look at the sky through some beautiful tree - not sure what it is but it is just so cool- the combination of the two...)
The owners - they are plain great. Hard-working yet fun-loving, just good people.
Check it out )))

This place was unfortunately fully booked when we got to otres but we still spent most of our time hanging out in their beach/bar... great food, great coffee, pasta etc. Very relaxed armospere. Not cheap but not over the top either... relaxed and helpful staff.
