Booked the Golden Sand of the internet and it was a very good choice. For $30 a night ocean views, buffet breakfast, big clean rooms,safety deposit box in rooms I thought it was very good value.
On arrival there was a small problem regarding the price but we had a copy of the booking( always a good idea) and we also got an upgrade.Very big clean rooms.
The only downside like most hotels in asia the internet in the rooms was hopless but there were computers in the hotel lobby. naturally local like to see what you are doing on line which is a little annoying.
The pool area is great if you just want to do nothing all day.

Room Tip: On arrival just ask the question can you get an upgrade and maybe you will be successful if the plac...

I passed through Sihanoukville on my way to and fro Koh Rong. The Golden Sand was a good choice among the many options in Sihanoukville. Breakfast was a highlight as were the kind and attentive staff. I would not visit Sihanoukville for any reason other than getting to Koh Rong which was unspoiled and very rough outdoorsy camping stuff in July 2013. I am happy to have been and then to get on to my next stop. All that said the Golden Sand was clean and reasonable at a fair price of 40us per night.

Stayed for two nights at the end of an extreme dirt bike rally around Cambodia. Golden Sands was recommended by the rally operator who has been 14 years in Cambodia. The room was excellent and nothing like the reviews I had read before booking. There was no noise, the rooms are large, bathrooms clean and modern, bed was large and mattress was perfect. Breakfast was not five star but then neither was the price! Location was perfect with a short stroll to the beach. The pool was very clean and certainly not utilized. If I come back, this will be my choice of hotel.

We stayed for 4 nights. The hotel was clean and welcoming.Little dated in places but nevertheless good location and good pool. While we where there they were doing up the bar area around the pool so hopefully that will now be finished. It was just a shame that while we were relaxing by the pool at the time it wasn't possible to get a drink.

Breakfast was not the best experience for us, it was very much catered for the chinese community. Twice we had to complain about the service because food had ran out and there were no clean plates and cups available. They hotel staff were apologetic however, but not what you expect from this standard of hotel.

While in the resort of Sihanoukville we did visit Ream National Park which was beautiful but now at risk from development.

In relation to the beaches in and around Sihanoukville. I was disappointed to experience high levels of rubbish that were on the beaches. Sihananoukville does have the potential to be a great resort attracting a greater number of tourists (and not just backpackers) if the beach area was cleaner and more inviting.
Perhaps introdice a small tourist tax on non-cambodians staying in the beach resorts in which the money generated can be invested to keep the area clean.
