Samon's is located just up the river from Kampot and it really quite a relaxing place. Yes, you will be staying in small hut. There are geckos, bugs, etc because you are in a western style hotel. This should be expected and as far as I am concerned is part of the experience. The flip side is at night you can sit outside on the porch on the river and just feel incredibly relaxed with the moonlight reflecting off the water while the staff prepares and excellent meal. The one thing that we did not enjoy as much was that the owner was a little pushy on selling tours. We would have no problem with him suggesting some tours, but after we had said we were just going to explore town and the area on our own we continued to be rather insistant, asking us if we'd decided after we told him no. However, the location and atmosphere is well worth it.
