Otres Orchid
Reviewed August 24, 2013

We recently stayed for 2 nights and thought this was one of the best places to stay at Otres Beach. The bungalow was $10/night for a fan room which was adequate with the current weather. The only downside to our stay was the construction work which was being done in the low season. This started at 7am and lasted until midday which was annoying as it meant being woke up early and then nothing being done in the afternoon when people were actually out of their rooms. I'm sure this place will be great when the work is complete. The lady was also very helpful and booked our night bus tickets and let us have late check out as the place wasn't busy.

After arriving late at night and driving with a crazy-drunk-ripping-off-tuktuk driver to Otres beach and without having a reservation we ended up in this recently established family-run hotel. The rooms are very basic but also very cute and cleverly constructed bamboo bungalows with ensuite bathrooms. Each has a porch with a hammock. Because they are still building up the place there was some noise in the morning. The extremely friendly staff was so honest they told us about the construction site the night before and promised us not to start too early (not before 10 am) so we could get some sleep after the journey from Phnom Penh.

As mentioned the rooms are basic but at 10 USD / night the value couldn't be better. The only drawback is that even in such a new place all the bedsheets and pillows already smell a bit moldy, unfortunately. I understand the fact of such a humid climate influencing the drying process of laundry but anyway smelling mold throughout the entire night isn't what I consider a good night sleep.

Anyway, I am sure this will improve once the hotel is up and running and consider it the best option after having seen some other really filthy places at Otres Beach, some of which also have surprisingly high ratings on Tripadvisor...

Unfortunatley we had to leave after only two days due to an unforeseen sickness and the staff organized a private teansport back to Phnom Penh. They didn't even charge anything for the late checkout.

Honest and very sweet family staff!!!

Its the first place we stayed after we reached sihanoukville. Was suppose to check in at Everythang as we already booked it online but it turned out the owner didnt see the notification and that place was fully booked. Luckily we went and asked at Otres Orchid. Its a great place to stay with free towel, amenities and clean water. The hammock outside was nice to chill and relax. Overall it was a great stay and i will definitely go back if i ever visit sihanoukville again.

Greatly disappointed to be only able to stay 2 nights here: our own little piece of paradise. Bed was comfy, mosquito net essential, hammock on deck was lovely. Although the bungalows are not on the beach front as others are, (beach is just across the road), this means the music from the many bars does not impose itself on one's sleep as much as it could. Be prepared for a basic room, but with its own bathroom, and all for $10 a night. What could be better?

We have stayed here a few times now and will be returning again soon!
It is amazing value for money $10 per night for 2 people or a family room for $20. The rooms are nice and clean and the bungalows have a veranda with a small table & chairs (good for having a wine or beer at night) and a hammock.
The first time we stayed for 4 nights and there was no loud music coming from across the road, however when we stayed last time the music was pretty loud and I think the 3 nights would have been our limit, so it must just depend on when you're there?!
The beach across the track is lovely and as the Otres Orchid doesn't have a restaurant we either ate at Indigo (which is great as you can use their lounges if you eat there and we have never had any issues with their food!) or went into town for dinner.
Just a tip, take some fly spray with you, even though there are mozzie nets we found we needed to spray before we went to bed. The beds are great too.
The staff are lovely as well and it is a very stress-free, comfortable place to stay.
If the gardens were done it would be really pretty, as its got lots of potential!!

Me and my girlfriend stayed here for 2 nights,10Dollars per night,clean,fan rooms,private bathroom.. Other places here dont have clean water and here they have. The owners are nice as well. Botton line - its not on the beach like other expansive bungalous here(25 dollars sometimes shared toilet!!)its 20 meters from the beach,which is worth it and u see the sea from the room,they also have small shop in the front which has good prices- so,i say,after some nights here- best choice in this great beach!!
