Bungalows with fans were too hot. One fan between two beds wasnt enought. Location at the beach was nice and sand was so white. Might be good choice on cool season, but not at april.

Quite rundown facility”
We stayed in one of their double bed huts for two nights. The whole hut made the impression of being neglected for quite some time. The bathroom wasn't clean (cigarette stumps squeezed into the corners, floor wasn't clean, a whole army of ants running through) and we had a rat living in the wall and became quite lively during the night. After we informed the staff about the rat, they just told us that they knew but couldn't do anything. We didn't think that was so cool. I understand we stayed in a remote location, and we don't basic accommodations but this wasn't basic but dirty basic.

+ good location close to Camboadia Speed Ferry Pier, must bungalows beach front with great view - staff very bored and unfriendly (with one exception), they watch TV all the time and don't care about their customers, Bungalow very basic with lots of holes, beds are clean though, rats in the bungalow during night time!!!, much trash around, loud noise from a generator during night time, no shower to wash feet in front of bungalow (almost all bungalows on the island have it), restaurant not very appealing, breakfast very basic (only plain Omelett or 2 eggs + coffee/tea)

Terrifying”
The bungalows have huge gaps on them, so rats, lizards, mosquitos and all sorts of forrest animals come in during the night - I found it terrifying. There is an incredibly loud generator making noise until 11am. Staff is unfriendly. No wi-fi. Sewers consist of a whole in the sand, slowly making their way into the ocean, which smells horribly (although the same can be said for most hotels on this bay, so the shallow area of the sea is yellow). I paid for 2 nights and couldn't bear to stay that long, I'd rather lose money than spend another sleepless and terrifying night. Never again.

Bungalow fine, the rest not worth the money”
We stayed at Home Stay one night which unfortunately last few hours as we were woken up by workers just under our place. We went then for breakfast and got my oder totally wrong and the owner kept on saying the dish warms right although we showed him the dish on the menu. The service needs improvement and also the surroundings of the bungalows as they literally are surrounded by trash and unfinished pieces of wood etc. I might recommend this place only if the price was less than what we paid.

Worst night of our travels so far”
I understand the island is all about going back to basics, and we really were prepared for that prior to our stay (which we pre-booked for a few nights). However, the bathroom had clearly not been cleaned at all prior to our arrival, the shelf and soap tray each had a couple of cm's of dirty, scummy water in them. Which provides perfect breeding ground for mosquitos. Not to mention the huge gaps in the walls, floor and ceiling. As the evening wore on, there were so many mozzys/moths and giant ants in there with us that we couldn't shower and even resorted to urinating off the balcony in order to save ourselves from being bitten all over. May I just add that the bathroom door was also broken and wouldn't close. We then retreated to the bed, where the sheets were damp either from not being changed or from the storm overhead and the lack of protection the structure provides. Safe to say we had a hellish night and promptly left the next morning. The manager assured me Agoda would process my refund, then I was told by Agoda that he had refused it. Despite the fact we had clearly complied with the cancellation policy. To summarise, this really is for the most basic traveller. I would recommend spending a few more dollars and go towards the nicer end of Saracan bay where the water isn't as brown and the bungalows a bit sturdier/cleaner.

Still a lovely place”
Don't expect AC or electricity 24/24, don't expect ice (for coffee) before the first morning delivery, don't expect milk shakes at lunch (no electricity). Don't expect wifi nor mobile network... Expect everything else : a cheap and comfortable bungalow straight on the white sand and crystal clear water beach. Warm and friendly staff eager to teach you a bit of Khmer words, home made food with daily fresh food deliveries. We love this place run by a local family and we wouldn't go to another twice-the-price overpopulated marketing-designed place.

Tree house ”
tree house experience, view, fun
The tree house is basic (yes there is a toilet and a shower in the tree house!) but a good experience, we had breakfast in our deck chairs very close to the sea just under the tree house, view from tree house was perfect, beach and restaurants are nice.

Just bad”
Nice beach and food
The resort lies in the very far end the the saracen bay. We have to go by taxi boat to get here from the main pier without any support from the resort. We ask for the return trip to be arranged but they did absolutely nothing, we have to do all by ourselves. The rooms are poorly built with cheap material. The beds are smelly and there are very limited electricity. One bright spark among those bad points is the restaurant is fantastic. The food is a little more expensive than the main lane but it is one of the best. I'd recommend to stay somewhere near and just come here for the food.

Not as expected ”
1. Walking out and being on the beach
This place is the place on the island where everyone goes "at least I'm not staying there!" The mattress is made of foam and not king size. There are gaps between the floorboards and insects etc can come up through them. I have developed a rash on my upper body where I was cuddling with the blanket they provided. I think they are mite bites. They did change my blanket when I asked though. They didn't clean my bungalow once during my stay of 5 nights. There is NOT 24 hour electricity as they advertise on their website. I expected to be roughing it on the island but i didn't expect it to be this rough... The young man who works at the reception obviously knows the resort is not up to par. When we arrived he couldn't stop apologizing enough for the place being so simple. He is also the cook in the kitchen. He is obviously overworked, tired and embarrassed of the situation he finds himself in. I was in communication with someone at the resort organizing boat transfers. Once I arrived in Cambodia the communication stopped though. Ended up booking the fast ferry from Sihanoukville to the island. We got dropped off on the wrong side of the beach and had to walk about 45 minutes (at least) to our resort with our luggage. Other resorts on that side of the beach sent boats, buggies and staff to come pick the luggage up at least. Not Homestay though... Their reason "pour boat is broken."" We ended up paying the resort next door $5 to take us back to the pier

DO NOT STAY AT THIS RESORT!!!! We were ASSAULTED ”
Resorts in the island send boats to collect guests in the pier, but they don't. No roads so you have 2 carry bags by the sand along the entire bay.2pm our room wasn't ready n asked if WE WANTED to have the room clean? Previous guest warned of the poor conditions and how unsafe+unstable the treehouse is w/ wind. On entering I slipped on the ladder as it broke away from the rust nail, hurting my foot. Ad is a LIE! No walls, no door and bathroom is piece of plastic attached w/ rusty nails out a plank of wood. "Room" is exposed to elements+ to anyone. They place chairs under so forget having a rest or privacy. Full of lizards+bugs, no sink but listed as ensuite, blind is broken, bed (listed as double) is a cheap piece of foam on the floor, full of wholes. No soap and only half a toilet roll. I complained n they said no refund+became annoyed. After trying to contact Agoda(no Wi-fi in the island)we decided to stay somewhere else.Owner saw us leaving w/ bags and wanted the key. He said 'If you aren't staying here you leave the key'. But did but said if he won't give refund we have the right 2 keep it for 2 nights but he got angry, declined n said we could get it with him if we came back.Next morning returned to get photos 4 evidence and they gave the key. As interior is exposed, he saw us taking photos and got angry+aggressive. He+four men surrounded screaming+demanding we came down. I refused n said that we had paid to stay so we had the right to be there as he declined refund. Owner was drunk n climbed the treehouse screaming that we had to get out and grabbed my arm dragging me to the exit of the treehouse after he took the key. I scream so he realised what he did n left but continued cursing from ground level+making homophobic remarks. Sent clear evidence: photos, audio recording and video of the incident but Agoda appeared to side w/resort and continued to question our side as he denied evrthng.We couldn’t get the police to come as they charge to come. DONT STAY HERE

Good location, nice little balcony, good food
The thatched roof & walls look charming YET there's holes in the walls where RATS came in during the night ! I was horrified. The owners shrugged their shoulders, commenting that it's natural. No money back, I left & found a much cleaner, solid bungalow nearby for the same price.

Warm welcoming, beautiful view, cheap food
The staff is welcoming and ready to help. The rooms are of good quality for the rate (yet the mosquito net is too small). Don't expect power 24/7 (only 6pm to 11pm) or wifi here, but a cambodian run business. Let you know that if you book the boar through the hotel, you will get a slow boat (2h one way)... Bit you'll arrive on the good pier (1min walk)

Not somewhere I would recommend...”
budget, less people
Not a good experience... I sent them an email 1-2 weeks before arrival & asked how can I get there from the pier, then no one replied. I arrived the isl& at around 6pm, i found there's some people holding a board with hotel name but didn't see Home Stay Resort... finally, i asked someone to help me to call the resort, then they said the boat drive back to home town & no one is gonna pick me up... i was carrying 20kg backpack while the resort located at the end of the beach... which u have to spend more than 20 mins from the main piers.. they asked me why i didn't contact them earlier so they can try to arrange pick up, & then i shown them the email that i sent & they were like speechless.. the room, a very simple one, can't say it's bad coz they are 2 stars, but when you saw the bungalows & restaurants of all other resorts in the island... I'm sure that Home stay resort is the worst. a lot of insects in the room & the restaurant, i stayed in other restaurants, the problem is not that serious... i got at least 5 cicadas hit me hardly when i was having dinner in the restaurant... but wasn't happen when i was in the other restaurants.... think that's the location problem & they don't have that electric machine to kill the insects while others are well-equipped & nice decoration too. room - got bite by the mosquitoes for whole night... electric only provide from 6-11pm, so you only got 5 hours to charge your devices & after 11pm, the dark just not allow you to see your own arms. perhaps other resorts in the island the same i'm not sure, but at least they should notice me but not until i back to my room & find out there's no electric & i wasn't showered. I tried to find someone but that's not possible coz the restaurant closed... finally i just showered in the dark. i will not recommend this resort to other even other resorts maybe cost more, but it will be worth...

Trash island”
Managment was ok, resort was not! Go on robinson resort side of the island
Waited 2 hours at the pier before someone from home stay resort showed up! No boat to pick us up, so we had to walk with our huge bags for 45 mn under the sun and with high tide ( we had water up to our waist at some places). The beach was completly trashed. Garbage EVERYWHERE. Once there We checked into our bungalow and went to eat. After we came back, we encounter 2 big rats in the room so we ask to change to another bungalow. Power run in the room from 6 pm to 11 pm... After that, no more fan! It was incredibly hot in the room and we did sleep 2 hours at most! The highlight of this 2 days was the other side of the island where robinson resort is located...the beach was clean,relaxing and with very few people. The walk to go there is pretty rough. Be ready to walk 35 minutes on the beach and an additional 35 minutes thru the jungle. Equiped some good shoes as well (no flip flop) as the way in the jungle is going up and down with uneven rocks and roots along the way! Go to eat to the restaurant next to bar 42 ( on robinson side of the island), the food was delicious and my grilled eggplant and chicken dish was one of the best I had in cambodia.
