            Sijakonville is one giant building site.. Avoid for now”
            Hotel was in middle of giant building site. They tried to keep it clean, and to be fair the room was OK. The swimming pool was not in use, They did not serve much in the way of food. I did have lasagne one evening, but it was brought in on a moto. Edible, and no stomauch problems! I appearred to be the only short term guest there. Other visitors and staff were French. Could not find anywhere remotely decent to eat in entire town, a fe OK coffe shops that is all. (I walked for over 5 hours looking). Maybe Sihakonvile will be OK in 5 or 10 years time, but now it really is a mess.

            Bad Area, Bad Place”
            First of all, this is a horrible city to go to. Second, the staff at Harbor Lights were not very friendly. They were having a Christmas party when we arrived and were not really cognizant of the fact that they had people coming to stay. The greeting was uninviting and a little cold. This was probably due to the fact that nobody stays here anymore. When I say here, I mean Sihanouk, Cambodia. This city is dirty and slowly being taken over by Chinese people. Perhaps due to the lack of people visiting the city and the hotel, the hotel owners do not really care anymore. They will probably lose this property in the not so distant future. Especially annoying was the fact that we paid 50 dollars per night and this hotel was definitely not worth that. Also, we woke up to have breakfast and the owners had left early in the morning. The front desk staff member informed us he could not cook, he did not know how. We were not told about the kitchen being closed the night before. Very sad.

            The worst hotel ever. Don't waste your money”
            DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY stayin in this hotel. 1. No staff to meet or greet us. It took us 10 min to realize that the lady at the bar was the owner. And she turned toward us after she finished her discusstion. 2. Located somewhere in nowhere among construction sites. Dirty street, pile of garbage next to the enterance. 3. Bad smell in the room. 4. One towel to two. 5. No breakfast. 6. Very old furniture and air conditioner. The noise of AC is another story... If you want to SPOIL your holiday then stay here.

            Absolute worst area of town unless you enjoy working girl bars on a street full of smelly hot garbage. Unmaintained hotel. Cable doesn’t work. WiFi barely works. Door to balcony screwed shut. Shower head broken. Lower floor smells like moldy sewer. Staff entirely unhelpful. The owner clearly does not care about the place or it’s customers. GROSS!

            The hotel was very peaceful. Sihanoukville has changed a lot in the past year, now there are Casino's going up everywhere. This place had a very peaceful environment. The pool was very deep (near 3m/9ft) and much larger than it appeared. The view from the room was incredible. The staff were very friendly. We will stay here again when traveling through Sihanoukville.

            French hotel built with an old world charm with large balconies and a big swimming pool. Highly recommended when compared to the sterility of the giant new Chinese hotels with casinos that are all over Sihanoukville. Harbor Lights is built for comfort first with friendly staff, both Cambodians and French, and a great location between beach and town.

            We enjoyed our visit to Harbor Lights Hotel. The French family that owns it are very friendly and helpful to needs. The breakfast of bacon, eggs, and toast was very good. Late at night we were hungry and they fixed us very good kabobs. The pool is fantastic and very nice to relax at. The pier and beach are just a 50 meter walk away. The nicer beach for swimming is a further 200 meters down the beach. Head up the hill for 50 meters for good food that is fairly cheap. Excursion boats that will take you for the day to two or three spectacular is available at the pier 50 meters away. The excursions cost $15-$20 per person. Great colorful sunsets from the pier also. We had a great time.

            I might be the easiest sell when it comes to accommodation. Give me a comfortable bed, sheets that you can't see through, a decent tv and I'm happy. This place ticked all the boxes for me. Huge room, spacious bathroom, legend flat screen tv. Great value I thought and walking distance from the entertainment that Victory Hill offers.

There is a good ,choice of room types, suitable for most tastes and budgets and a nice, large pool, typically unused but very attractive. The walk to the beach is not long at all, a few minutes - with good service all around (excellent food, cold juices and drinks, massage, toilet, et cetera).

Pool a good size but so much chlorine you feel you are swimming in a pool of bleach. Paid for breakfast included but was told there was no breakfast.

The hotel which advertises they have breakfast had no breakfast, when I arrived at 8pm they didn’t have any food when it says 24 hour food service and my hotel room didn’t have a light in the toilet which the receptionst said nothing I can do about it!

            The property has the potential to be great, i don't believe the owner/manager is interested in doing anything to improve the property. Hey, very simple if you are tired and not interested in your business sell it, or pass it onto to someone who can take care of it. Please remember people are booking to stay at you hotel and paying money, give them value for money, i was extremely disappointed when i arrived as i left 40 min after i arrived, i was happy to lose the monies i paid to stay for 3 nights. Not a good experience at all.

            Worst place to stay out of my 1 week here - had stayed in 2 other hotels. 1) No water provided in hotel - have to ask before you get water. 2) No kettle in the room. 3) No minibar provided as advertised. 4) In-room safe box was locked and cannot be used. Reception staff said he could get someone to open it, but whoever it was never came to unlock the safe :( 5) Poor wifi connection in rooms - easiest to connect at hotel lobby. 6) Free breakfast was provided when I booked room 2 months ago. However, owner mentioned that he had already asked Agoda to cancel the free b/fast as he's no longer offering that. He then asked me to write in to Agoda to complain/ query....Agoda, please take note! .....Lady manager was nice enough to honour the booking and had already prepared the meal before asking the hotel owner. 7) Worst of all (though no fault of the hotel), there was an electrical shutdown on the day of my arrival :( :( Hotel had generator, but only for 2 (out of 3 blocks). Frustrated!!

            Garbage dump”
            Pictures do not tell the story. The taxi driver asked us why we are staying there and told us to be back before dark, and he was spot on. Garbage everywhere on the way there, and one place to eat within 10 minute walk, I love street food but I wouldn't try the food around here and the only food at hotel is cressants and coffee in the morning, which are the only good thing here. The pool is nice and a lot of time wad spent on the balcony, mostly because ants and termites infested our room and was all over our food and clothes and the managers were told for times and refused to do anything, so we were forced to leave for a cleaner hotel and party of the city. I try to be positive but I can't do that for Harbor Lights, it's a crap hole and you have to go through a stinky garbage dump to get there. You will regret staying here, but if you do good luck and you've been warned.
