Hmmm...

3.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 3 Feb 2020via mobile
I think we were lucky enough that we did not book this place in advance, only walked in and got a room. Otherwise, my review will be similar to other low scoring ones...
The location is really good, far away from the the main party part not to be bothered by the noise, but close enough to walk up. Right by the water too.
The common/restaurant/bar area is breezy and comfy and great for chilling.
The bungalow itself , hmm on the wonky side, very very basic, beds with net curtains acting as mosquito nets (bear in mind, they’re all hiding inside to eat you alive on the first night), bathroom attached to the bungalow but outside, which we quite liked. Not hot water though, and no toiletries - only given couple of towels and a toilet roll.
Not sure why would you expect an air con in such a ‘rustic/basic’ place but there isn’t one, there are fans though.
I guess it’s all about the expectations- we didn’t mind this place, but I believe at $40 per night you would expect a touch more.
The island itself is very disappointing (as a lot of Cambodia unfortunately).
It’s not clean beautiful beaches! There’s so much rubbish everywhere, I was getting really angry with how little local people respect the land they live off. Water, beaches or jungle - makes no difference , mess everywhere :(

4 out of 5...probably generous but it was kinda fun
so my hut was way up the hill, really basic, really really basic, didnt realise the huts had no hot water or WiFi, you would assume given the heat that the water would be warmish...it wasnt, the bathrooms were outside which was nice, dont leave your stuff out there, i had monkeys rummaging through it, they also used to run through my hut in the mornings, which was also nice :)
the no WiFi was also kind of OK as it encouraged you too chill down at the main kitchen bar area which was really nice and had WiFi
cocktails and food were good, staff great
our 2 huts were on a lean like a crazy house, apparently this "resort" was the first built on KR
pricey for what it was but we looked at a lot of options and it suited our scabby budget...Otres for the same budget gave us more bang for buck but Otres is dead and buried now :(
location was good for us, far enough away from the doof doof but close enough to walk, we found we mostly left Paradise during the day and turned left at the beach

Food at the restaurant was very good, I loved their muesli yaourt with delicious and fresh fruits for breakfast, good coffee americano in a big mug. But the bungalow we got was very dim inside, and all open, doors were all hard to close and open, it was located all in the back so many mosquitoes and no wind, path to get wasn't very nice, I think it's better if you choose a beach front bungalow (but more costly). Bathroom and outside lights wasn't working so you need your phone lamp after dark. Cold shower, low pressure from sink. Bungalow and bathroom will need some renovation for better looking. Hopefully bed was very confortable and fan efficient to cool us down by night.

You have a beautiful private beach. The Bungalows are clean and near to the nature with an open bathroom. The prizes in the Restaurant are good and the food is AWESOME! The stuff was friendly and helped us with every problem. The Bungalows are near to the little center and to the ferry. Thank you for the great stay at Paradise Bungalows!

My fiance and I were so happy with our stay. Lovely staff, cool affordable rustic bungalows, perfect beach side location and my favourite part was chilling at the bar/ deck area. We will be back for sure!

We visited in low season and because it was our honeymoon we booked in advance to make sure we had somewhere to stay. Big mistake - there were lots of places with rooms for much cheaper and nicer than where we stayed. Even our own room was $20 cheaper when we looked on booking.com so if you go in low season don’t bother booking.

As we were on our honeymoon we wanted to spend a little more than we normally do on a backpacking holiday to get somewhere nice, but I have no idea what we got for the $70 we paid. The staff were pretty unhelpful. We were given the wrong food several times in the restaurant. The recommended boat was chaos. Honestly - it wasn’t the worst place I’ve ever stayed, but it was the most I feel like I’ve been ripped off.

The location was good as it was a short walk to the main pier but away from the noise. So if you can get yourself a good price here then stay, otherwise go somewhere else.
