Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The beach restaurants were all bulldozed 10 days before we arrived. Not sure what they were thinking especially doing this during the Chinese New Year holiday. In any case we tried to salvage the experience as best we can. The main downside was that all the beach restaurants and bars were destroyed in one swoop. So that mean you maybe had 4 options for restaurants. Luckily our hotel at White Boutique Hotel still managed their beachfront so you just need to cross a the dug up road and you could still enjoy a quaint, white sand, beautiful sunset beach.

On the plus side this meant almost no people and you could score a jet ski rental fairly cheap. Otherwise you probably want to wait 6 months before considering this beach which sounds like will turn into a park area.

To anyone who remembers what the beach area used to be like... It isn't there anymore. The bartender in Otres village said the same people who are building the new casino bought up the entire beach and proceeded to tear down everything that was nice about Otres beach. No bars, no restaurants, no watching the sunset from beach chairs while stoned. Currently, it's difficult to even cross the road to get to the beach. Everything good about Sihanouk gone in one fell swoop.

Our experience straight from the airport told us all was not good.The roads if you call them that were horrible no pavement at all. We arrived at Ottes 2 and could not believe how they have wrecked a once beautiful spot. Half finished roads and buildings no restaurants on the beach no chairs on the beach the list goes on.Our accomadation was Cambodian owned and they had just let it run down the pool was not even good to swim in (When we booked this in May 2019 all reviews gave it a good place to stay) We had paid for 3 nights but walked out of there 3 hrs later. We stayed across the road at another resort where at least we could swim in the pool and eat a meal there. We arranged to go out to Koh Rong earlier.When we got dropped off at sihanoukville to catch the ferry we had to carry out bags from the top off the street to the terminal there was a excavator loading a truck and you had to basically walk under it whilst it was loading the road leading down was well very much a construction zone.
If looking at booking in these areas read the reviews that are under terrible as will get the truth.
Overall This is not the Cambodians fault as they have no say in this and we feel sorry for them.
Go to the islands but the rest of that coastline give it a big miss.

It is safe to say that Sihanoukville is not what we imagined. We arrived at the airport at 7pm and had a transfer arranged to our hotel. During the 30 minute drive we experienced what some would say, a traumatic experience. The roads were extremely unsafe (we saw a horrible accident) due to the amount of construction taking place. Our first impression was that it felt like a ghost town. It felt eerie, lonely and dangerous.
Once we arrived at our hotel (Sahaa Beach Resort) we decided to go for a walk to find somewhere to eat. The streets were deserted, full of rubbish and we had stray dogs following us around in the dark. As two 20 something year old female travellers, we felt outrageously unsafe.
We were meant to stay in Sihanoukville for 3 nights but we fled to a hostel on Koh Rong early. I highly recommend you do not come here. It is polluted, dangerous and all of the beautiful Cambodian culture has been destroyed.

Otres beach resort is a part of one big building site called sihanoukville. It was one notch above been homeless. Wild dogs barking all night roaming the dirt track they call a road. Couldn't wait for daylight to leave went straight to sihanoukville airport , left Cambodia never to return. Don't go, not a holiday more of an indurance.

I still hear myself thinking “it can’t be that bad” when we decided to stay for one night in Sihanoukville/Otres beach.
Boy.. was I wrong. It’s even worse than I could have ever imagined. Garbage everywhere, construction everywhere and cranes.... I stopped counting after 50, knowing the amount would have probably over double of that.
The entire place gives you the feeling a war has been going on. Words are hard to find to give a description.
Avoid this place at all cost. Don’t even consider it!!

Came here 2years ago beautiful lively place plenty of bars and places to eat.
ALL GONE every thing was bulldozed 2daysbefore we came.
All those poor people who worked there are now without work.
It's all over shinukville no roads no hotels yet you can still find them on here so it looks like the town is still there believe me its not.
We only ate in the hotel as no were else to go we booked 5 days stayed 2 moved to kampot.
Our hotel was a great complement to the staff as thay fought through dust and dirt that the bulldozers dug up every day
Constantly cleaning tables to no avail.
The Chinese have well and truly killed Shinukville 😢 Sad times

It is ok during early morning and daytime. The beach is too noisy with crazy loud music and fireworks. All hotels along the road seem to be hosting Karaoke lovers. No relaxing time for family trip.

I visited here on 24 - 25 Jan 2023, it has changed a lot since my last visit back in 2019.

There were no more kois, on the beach and it serves the public. You may enjoy family activities here (BBQ, Sunbathing, Swimming, Jogging or Relaxed).

You may bring your staff here if you preferred or you may rent from local vendors. Food is limited but there were a few options that you can order from local vendors at the beach.

There were a few landmarks created (#សិលាបដ្ដបណ្ដាសា #ដើមឈើស្នេហ៍ #សិលាចាំស្នេហ៍)។

I look forward to the next BBQ and relaxed by the beach trip soon.

I can’t comment on what Otres Beach used to be like as this was our first visit. We spent a lovely afternoon swimming in the clean beach and watching the sunset. Lots of beach food vendors wandering up and down with things like summer rolls etc. Also vendors selling bbq food, pancakes etc. There are sadly construction going on behind and lots stopped as a result of covid hitting. But the beach itself was nice and the toilet and changing facilities clean.
