I stayed in the suite "happiness" for 2 nights. I fell in love with the view you get from the balcony (which is an extension of the bedroom itself), enjoying staring at the sea during at sunset. The suite had all the comfort I could hope for, and the traditional Khmer dwelling brings you cool air at night and thus provides you good sleep without using any AC (Eco-friendly!)
The staff was nice and very polite, although the aside services like motorbike taxi or bus ticket were quite overcharged, but it's easy to find cheaper travelling options near the beach.
A last word about the restaurant inside the guest-house: I had the best fish Amok in all Cambodia there!

Dear guest,
We have fixed prices for an ever same quality of service.
Some local little travel agencies in Kep have slash prices and are far too expensive on additional options.
The taxi driver we work with has all official papers. His vehicle is spacious and in good repair.
Recently, one of our guests called for an outside taxi and paid the fare in advance. As the taxi did not arrive at due time, we had to intercede but he arrived one hour later.

We took our four children aged 4,6,8, 10 to Le Bout de Monde for a two day stay as we had been told that was all the time you need in the area, how wrong they were! Le Bout de Monde is not just a hotel but an amazing experience. The setting is absolute paradise and the gardens are amazing. Rooms are unique but stylish, comfortable and oh so relaxing. Thea and his staff looked after us with such care and attention, especially for the children. The food was superb and the dining room looked out over the most amazing view. Thea was very knowledgeable and helpful in arranging tours and activites such as trips to Kampot, the pepper plantation and Rabbit Island. We have since decided a week was not long enough and plan to head back next year. Le Bout de Monde and Kep have a great balance between relaxing and exploring, not to be missed.

Our bungalow at the bout du monde (Sontes) was lovely - beautiful walk around balcony with seating and hammock, and stylish decor. The gardens are very pretty and the site is also in about the best spot in town, up high at the back with lovely views and quiet (though a long slog up if you try it on foot). There's a very nice path out the back into the woods.

But an accumulation of little things made this less than the paradise it might have been. None of them a big deal in themselves, and it didn't spoil our visit, but - the breakfast menu was the stingiest we came across; this was also the only place where we did not get complimentary water in our room; cleanliness was so-so (our water glasses, for example, were very grubby); the mossi net was very holey; the staff in the main building were helpful but perhaps not as warm as they might have been (though the staff in the gardens, hiring motos etc were all very friendly) and when we came back from breakfast on the day we checked out (before 8am) our room was already being stripped and cleaned, which made it awkward to change/use the bathroom etc for the journey.

Overall the quality of the bungalow still made this seem good value, though, and with just a few tweaks it could be fantastic. We enjoyed our stay very much. Ask at reception for the excellent map - it's a really good way of finding your way around. We hired a moto and went out to the pepper plantations, which we couldn't have done without it.

We didn't eat at the restaurant, but the views there are lovely - the food we had at the crab market was really great (We ate at Srey Pov).

Dear Guests,
First of all i am very amazed that French people give their opinion in English. I think that your point of view have some interest for French also.
We take all opinions into account but i must admit that yours puzzles me.
1) We change mosquito nets in all the bungalows last January.
2) Breakfast is neither lunch nor dinner. As you did not eat in our restaurant, maybe you had not enough food outside. The majority of our guests think our breakfast is lavish and our restaurant one of the best in Kep.
3) Thank you for your remark about housework before complete check out. This will never happen again.
See you

My partner and I stayed in the Khmer Villa at Le Bout du Monde for 5 nights. Despite the negatives, we loved the place! The accommodation is pretty basic. The hot water system didn't work (but it was humid anyway so it didn't matter). On arrival, towels were dirty but staff were quick to change them. The bathroom wasn't very clean. Only one staff member spoke English (not a criticism as we don't speak Khmer) but all staff were very friendly and helpful. When we got a flat tyre on our moto, staff took the bike down the road and got the tyre fixed (at a cost of 2,000 reil). The restaurant was great - beautiful food. We ate there most nights. We'd recommend a stay at Le Bout du Monde to anyone who wants a relaxing holiday. Kep is a great place to sit back and relax.

We stayed in a traditional residence, a wooden house on stilts with partially open walls and shower room. Therefore not so good for those with an avertion to creepy crawlies.
French managed from overseas, but needs some hands on management.
