    The stay is a short and simple one. Rooms here are basic but I think the hotel management can do a little improvement by making sure hte sheets are clean, toilets and bathroom are clean and functional. Breakfast is simple. Good access to beach.

    Close to all the action”

    Location, Beach fronted

    Right next to all the bars on the main strip but at the end of the beach. The rooms where only ok cant expect too much from the hotel with this price range. Though a pipe was leaking in the bathroom which meant the floor was always wet. Hotel need to be repainted, all the balcony railing has rust and corrosion on them.

    Exceedingly poor, such a shame all things consider”

    Only the location, everything else terrible

    As others have said, this hotel is 20 years out of date by design and specification. As a builder I can confirm many dangerous problems, including fuse boxes with the front cover missing, to rusted through safety railings. Its only saving grace is the beach location.did not even have fresh towels or the room made up. Internet was down about 70% of the time. Staff put a brave face on the situation and muddle through, but I stress its not their fault or causing. Its the owners who need a kick up the bum. The hotel needs shutting down for a couple of months and a total refurb. There are so many problems, I would run out of space listing them all, not to mention the dangerous ones.

    All night bad music, mosquitoes, 8am power tools”

    It's close to a lot of noise

    They handled the booking error fairly well after we kicked up a fuss (booked a twin room, got a double) but it's the location that's the problem. If you like the partying on the beach that's one thing but when you get back to your hotel, you don't want to hear it all night. There are other, nicer hotels just as close that don't have the noise issue... And they don't use power tools early in the morning during peak season either. The cost isn't relative to the general grubbiness either. Again, other hotels offer much better for the same/similar price.

    Nice but loud”

    Fantastic location, very good wifi, nice room with cable

    Great location, but located next to loud night clubs which go late into the night (Hotel does not have good insulation). This was fine for me since I retuned late from the night life but would not be good for a couple with children or older guests.

    Basic services for premium rate”

    Located on the beach

    We paid a premium to stay here as all rooms in town were getting full becuase of the Chinese New Year. The problems began as soon as we got there. Beds very hard, even harder than the usual in SE Asia. The power goes out daily and their generator could not power the hot water, A/C, and refrigerator. When then generator was operating it was noisy and smokey. Although the staff was good, the place was only worth $ 15 per night becuase you had to suffer with no services. Agoda was wonderful in getting us out of there and got some of our money back. Do not stay here unless you really only want a roof over your head and have $15. The nieghbors club played real loud music until 4am every morning. We needed a vacation from this place. Run down and it really was a waste of time and money.

    Hotel right on beach

    Great location, right on the beach, quiet end of town and welcoming staff. Have stayed here before and loved the location, views etc but was disappointed with rooms, could have done with a lick of paint and some TLC, some new cushions in the bar area and on the beach loungers would have made all the difference too.

    Only for hardcore backpackers / partying people”

    Close to beach and bars

    The rooms are shabby, poorly equipped and not really clean. The classifications "Superior room" and "Deluxe" mean nothing but a bad joke. The look from the rooms go to the waste heaps of a larger hotel nearby, but it is possible to catch a streak of the sea from the deluxe rooms. Staff is not very helpful, also due to the lack of English. Our room was cleaned only once during a 3 nights stay. At night the rooms are quite noisy through a nearby disco-like pub.

    very good location right on the beach, one of the downsides to this hotel is that the restaurant only serves Korean food (except for breakfast). The staff spoke very basic english, but they were advertising for english speaking staff so this may change.

    A nightmare the only way to describe it”

    Near the beach

    Where do I start, my brother's room was something out of an American horrow movie, my cousins sheets and towels were a disgrace and my room was like being at a music concert. My brother and cousin stayed for all of 30 minutes, I stayed for one night. Our other two friends werent impressed especially when the shower didnt work. Toilets were horrible and to lock the door they gave you a padlock which if you wanted to would of done nothing went knocking the hindges off the wood. Not enjoyable.

    Location on beach

    Observations: 1. Holes in towels and sheets 2. Room had not been cleaned in a while, plenty of hairs and spider webs visible on check-in 3. Toiled lid on the ground, seat half off toilet 4. Very little water pressure but was warm enough 5. AC does not cool the room but this is actually do to the fact that the hotel does not have enough power (lights dim and increase often until after 11pm when they close their restaurant) 6. Power outlet not working (need to unplug fridge to charge something, but fridge cooled fine) 7. Room not cleaned for 2 days. When asked told they needed my key which was with me but immediately opened the door with their key and cleaned the room while I waited. 8. Not the hotels fault but next to club and loud music (even with ear plugs) until 1am or so 9. Location on beach and walking distance to lots of good restaurants is great. This is the best aspect of hotel. 10. Staff slow and did not really care. I live in Cambodia and this was bad service. 11. Food was bad even traditional Khmer dishes like lok-lak 12. Mattress was really old and we both felt springs in our back For me, hotels are about what you pay. P.S. They have a newer building and the rooms are better. When we asked to change they said they had nothing available which turned out to be untrue.

    Great Location, Good Staff but terrible A/C.”

    Location is the best feature

    We arrived & were greeted in a unfriendly manner by a drunken owner - as if they were not expecting us. We were informed that our "deluxe double room" was not ready but we could have a "deluxe twin room", we were not impressed so they put a double bed into our room. The next morning we checked out other rooms to discover that our room was indeed not a deluxe room. We changed rooms only to find the a/c was only blowing hot air, they told us that it would be fixed the next day, we waited for 3 days - no change but the same story. The owner could not care less, the rooms were never cleaned & we had to ask for fresh towels. We decided to cancel our booking & change hotels as for the same price we got a better hotel with all the benefits. Malibu House is ideal for backpackers & those that do not care about comfortable living conditions.
