We originally booked a 3 night stay for a bit of a break away from the hubbub of the city. My first time to Sihanoukeville so relied heavily on TA reviews. Very happy we chose Otres Lodge. Turned out to be one of the best accommodation facilities in the best area of the best beach in the Sihanoukeville area. Seriously, if you want some peace and quiet away from the bar scene but still want a great variety of eating places that you don't have to travel miles to get to, then you need to stay at Otres 1 beach. The beach here is cleaner than Otres 2 as well. Much nicer. Otres lodge is across the road from the beach and right in the centre of Otres 1. It is a traditional thatched roof, timber constructed complex of bungalows but with the 'mod cons' like a bathroom with real hot shower (although low pressure). If you are after a true beach front bungalow in Otres area be prepared to get a tiny, basic fully thatched room (poor security) with shared bathroom. That may be romantic if you don't mind waiting for the bathroom and getting stuff stolen. For me though I much preferred the superior standards all round that this place afforded at not much extra $$. They do have air con rooms however we found the fan room with additional floor fan to be good. This place also has a nice clean pool and large screen TV in the common area. Great if you are a sports fan. This was extremely popular on the night of the FIFA World Cup final! Probably our only negative for our stay here was that we had a rat visit us at night a few times and it chewed a few small things. This wasn't a big deal to us really however I imagine it may be for some. You have to understand that you are in a third world country and if this is as bad as it gets you really can't complain. I did not mention it to staff but I am sure they would have acted on it if I did. They were great. They even changed our mattress for us as my wife needed something firmer. We were so happy with our stay we extended another two nights. And here is a tip for you - if you stay during the low season it is much cheaper dealing direct than through the online accommodation booking sites. This place really is excellent value for money.
