Makara Liaison

Near the beach. Quiet location for Sihanoukville. Clean
I was reasonably happy with my stay. However, I also spent a few days at the Coolabah Hotel which I definitely preferred. One impression I had of the Makara was that the staff appeared to be a bit intimidated by the almost constant presence of the owners!

What an amazing place

You can find this place with: extremely friendly staff, good service and very nice room. If I come back, I totally stay at the Makara Bungalows again.

The Makara Guesthouse - last but NOT least!

This may be the last little guesthouse as you approach Otres from Occhateal Beach, but its "remoteness" increases its charm! The environment is much quieter than hotels closer to Serendipity Beach!
My stay was perfect. I practiced music every morning, enjoyed a lovely shower, had a filling and reasonbly priced breakfast with delicious Khmer coffee, could walk to areas of interest, and end days with a relaxing swim at the pool! The whole guesthouse is compact, but very functional. All the rooms are either situated around a perfectly sized swimming pool or around the back of this courtyard type set up. Rooms in the back allow for slightly more privacy. The owner, Mr. Kim is very friendly and helpful as are all the staff. You can also rent basic bicycles and motorcycles here if you wish to vary your adventures from those that require a walking speed. Each room includes a refrigerator, where you can store your bottles of wine and snacks, and a safe box...good for peace of mind should you want to go hop on a dive boat for a day or two or go hiking to other beaches or, in my case a local microbrewery. A one minute walk to the beach takes you the edge of the more commercial Occhateal beach with its many shore side Khmer restaurants. From here you can either walk down to Party at Serendipity, catch live music at the Led zephyr, or walk to the more backpackerish Otres beach with its laid back restaurants and bungalows. I was never disappointed with my days and nights in Sihanoukville because of this bungalow - even on the two days I did not set foot outside Makara!

great stay, last place on the road

staff, cleanliness, comfy bed
staff was very nice, room and pool clean daily, even the location is last place on the road but is just 10-15 minutes walk to ferry port, only minus is don't do laundry with the hotel, it takes long time to return (lots of laundry services outside by the road around)

A little too remote; the mosquitoes drove us out

Nice pool, fantastic wifi, comfortable beds
The layout here is good, with little sitting areas for each room surrounding a clean pool. The foam beds were comfortable and the wifi was reliable and fast. But the location is not great; the beach is just a couple blocks away, but it's about six unlighted blocks to the start of bars and restaurants. The restaurant is hit or miss, with the food sometimes being inedible. The coffee was particularly noteworthy---as if they made gallons in 2006, boiled it down to a sludge, and reconstitute it now on demand. But it was the mosquitoes constantly getting in the room that drove us away.
