We staied for one night only ( wich was enough). On a positive note the food is really very good and well prepared. As we are Italian we know how authenthic Italian food look like. Fresh pasta was excellent and the rating for the restaurant would be a five +... Probably the best italian food we had in Cambodia. Unfortunately we cannot say the same for the bungalows. The location is good but the cleanliness is poor. There is no water to clean your feet outside the room so it's practically impossible not to fill the room with sand. However the worst was the smell of the room especially the mosquito net. Not sure which was the last time it was washed. In general the room do not look clean. It's a real pity because all the rest was very nice.

This review is only for the restaurant. We came to eat or drink here 3 times due to how good it was. I loved the nutella icecream, homemade pasta and great mixed drinks. It was a little pricey but for authentic and yummy italian food this place fills a needed void.

Three friends and I stayed across the road from Pappa Pippo and were very impressed with the food. We had an excellent 3 course meal including garlic bread, pastas and the best part nutella ice cream. The best place we have eaten since we have been travelling! Would definitely recommend!!

We moved to Papa Pippo with my friend from another location at Otres Beach. I loved simple beach bungalows at the first glance when we saw them. They are not cheap comparing to some other little "hotels" around, but I believe the price is fair. We had our own bathroom, very comfortable clean bed with good mosquito net and big glass door opening straight to the sea direction - wonderful view ! We really enjoyed our stay, it was too short.... Very good location at the end of Otres beach, so it's beautiful and peaceful. If you want to see more people, just few steps there are bars and restaurants along the beach. It was kind of funny to hear italian language around at the cambodian beach place, but coffe was really great. (and italian ice-cream and some other specialities too:)). I do recommend it and hope to go back one day.

We are staying here as I write this. Papa Pippos is definitely the best spot on Otres Beach (Otres 1 or near 'o'). This place is a little slice of paradise! We stayed elsewhere when we first arrived at Otres (cheaper place) so that we could find the best spot. We found Papa Pippos at the end of Otres beach (just before the 1500m stretch of beach). Sunbeds, lounges, hammocks and an awesome restaurant, with beachfront bungalows is Papa Pippos. We are paying $25 usd per night, and its worth every penny. The atmosphere here is very chilled out, and the staff are great. Food as described in previous posts is a little more expensive than the bars down the beach, however again it's worth it and $6.50 being the most expensive thing on the menu is really not that expensive. I would highly recommend this place.

Room Tip: Compared to all other bungalow accommodation on Otres this is by far the best.
