“Outstanding!!!”
Reviewed May 5, 2014

Although Bacoma may refer to BAnanas, COconuts, and MAngos, this is what Bacoma means to us…

B = Best value for your money without question
A = Amazing food
C =Cozy and comfortable
O = Outstanding service
M = Michael’s movie nights
A = Awesome staff

Thank you Michael, Srai Na, Dara, and the team. You anticipated our every need and made us feel like family. We will especially miss Michael's dry sense of humor, Srai Na's incredible food, and Dara's warm smile!

We stayed at Bacoma for 7 weeks and we still found it hard to leave. We would highly recommend Bacoma to anyone visiting the Kep area.

I stayed here for one night; the bungalow was clean and nicely looking and the owner and his wife took care very well of the guests. About 10 minutes by foot away from the beach. Highly recommended if you travel to Kep.

What can I say about this place, I saw how many excellent reviews it had and how cheap it was and thought it couldn't be that good... But it was!

The bungalows are brilliant, some of the best bungalows we've stayed in during our time in SE Asia. They have shared bathrooms, but it's pretty much like having your own as there is three between about five bungalows.

Michael is an excellent host and will do anything for you, even movies every night in his out door cinema, the perfect way to end each day.

They have bikes available to use for free which makes it easy to navigate around the small town.

Even the food is excellent, so there's no need to leave at night anyway!

At around ten dollars a night, this is the best value accommodation we've ever had!

Room Tip: All rooms are excellent, no need to opt for anything other than a round bungalow

My son is staying there right now he has had a terrible lonely trip to Cambodia with so many people self involved and to many chemically effected types. But and its a big BUT he has found a great place in Bacoma the staff and owners are truly professional and friendly. He said the round rooms are the best he has stayed in throughout his trip they are small but very well designed and built and very clean. The food is the best he has eaten he did cut his stay short but not because of Bacoma but he just needed to find a place not so quiet.

He enjoyed the room food cold beer movies and gardens and most of all the friendly people. I enjoyed his happy voice telling me on the phone. I wish he could pickup Bacoma and take it with him on his travels great work Michael.

Room Tip: Round rooms greatest value in Cambodia small but perfectly formed

My wife and I recently stayed for 5 nights at Bacoma. We had initially only booked 2 nights, but that's how much we liked it.

We had a round bungalow, which was basic but perfectly functional. The room was spotless, the bed comfortable and the mosquito net in tact.

The shared bathroom was the cleanest shared bathroom we've found in Asia.

The staff are great and will help with your every need. Even the cat is the nicest Asian cat we've met!

The hotel is situated near some great restaurants in the crab market, but the food at the hotel is amazing. Try the shrimp with kampot pepper, it's lush.

In the evenings, there's not a lot yo do in kep, but bacoma have a cinema with hundreds of films available to keep you entertained in the evening.

All this for $10 a night. This is the best hotel we've stayed in so far on our trip, and you'd have to go some way to beat it.

Cheers Michael and Darra, you were great hosts.

We spent a very happy three nights here. Such a welcoming place. We arrived very hot and dusty after cycling and were warmly welcomed in the bar area. We opted for the round bungalow which is lovely and shares the spotless 3 bathrooms with 4 other bungalows. We had a delicious lunch and ate breakfast here every day, good menu choices. We spent many happy hours playing pool, reading and having a few drinks. They show movies each night too. It is done up to a very high standard and lots of space. The natural garden areas are beautifully landscaped and it's like showering in a jungle with all the interesting birdsong! Really friendly staff and very clean.

I stayed here for 2 nights in the square bungalow. Although they forgot the mossie net first night they were so apologetic and soon fixed for next night.. Ensuite bathroom , veranda , excellent value for money

Food was excellent and Michael and his staff could not be more helpful , arranging trip to Rabbit Island , a must and tickets for onward travel.

Free use of bikes to get you down the hill to the town ,you can walk but the bikes is more fun...

Would recommend this
