Reviewed 4 November 2010

Great hotel! Owners were wonderful and very helpful. Visible every day and the father/son managing team were fantastic. Very attentive, very friendly... great food. Room was wonderful and the view from the roof was phenomenal. Can't wait to go back and see the finished place. Was finishing the pool when there. Highly recommend Coolabah!

Spotless modern room with great bathroom, something you would expect in a European hotel. Minimal styling with limited Khmer influence means once inside, you could really be anywhere in the world.

The Aussie owners could not be more helpful, with maps, good advice, good tuk tuk drivers and really helpful with onward travel plans. We didn't eat at the Restaraunt, but was always busy and the lounge a relaxing place to hang out.

Whilst in a great location, the downside is the noise. The doors would stop a rhino but the windows are normal, which doesn't help with sound proofing. The nightclub next door really cranks the music out (although does turn it down later) and we had swarms of kids in the central pool early in the morning, so no early nights or sleep in's to be had. Ear plugs are a must!

We stayed her in October which is the rainy season and yes it rained often.
The hotel has a nice pool, small and not a lot of chairs. All the rooms overlook the pool.
A point that drove us mad and has nothing to do with actual hotel was the family with little girls that got up every day at 7 am and the kids got in the pool and screamed (no exaggeration ear piercing screams) for hours. Just a consideration since all rooms face the pool.
Food was good but service was extremely slow.

Great place, great location, negotiable prices, very helpful staff!

We were going door-to-door looking for a reasonable place to stay in this location and this was the oasis in amongst some cheap, but not so cheerful, other options. More than happy. Would definitely return.

.All staff and management were really friendly and helpful. Food was good too. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. Pool had a great swimming workout machine. Douglas and Tim (owner/manager) very knowledgeable about the area and give great advice on where to go.

There was noise from local club late evening, but come midnight the music stops (but the bars stay open) - so good for a quiet night (for people like us) and good for those who want to stay out late.

The beach we went to (a 5 min tuk tuk drive away) was amazing. beautiful and only 4 people on the whole beach, but is was just before tourist season)

In summary we had a great time there and would stay at coolabah again as first choice.

Had a great time here. Lovely owners, Verona and Douglas who went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable and fun. Tim their right hand man who makes everyone feel comfortable and at home. (sometimes too much!) we came for 2 nights and stayed 7. Delightful staff, hi Ken, Tre and all. The food is very good, try the Kep soft shell crab with green pepper sauce. All seafood hand picked at the market by Verona herself. Room, bathroom very clean, fresh and new also a new swimming pool. Monday trivia night great fun even if rigged with local trivia sharks! ("just jokin"). Go to Otres beach by tuk tuk much quieter and nice cafes on beach also.

After travelling around Cambodia for over 2 weeks we arrived at the Coolibah for 2 nights. Ended up staying around 8 nights. What a great little resort. A special thanks to v and douglas for making us so welcome. Their staff are excellent, and our stay was so memorable. Great food (although portions for entrees were a little big). Excellent value for money compared with anything else in town. Nothing was too much trouble for anyone. Once again, thanks a lot for a memorable stay. Cherers Tony Hendy. Ballarat. Australia.
