We had book a 4 nights stay at Coolabah after reading the reviews but we were quite disappointed when we realized it was more a motel on a busy street than an hotel. This was our relaxation/beach break after touring Cambodia and before heading to Laos so we were ready for a nice hotel were we could just unwind for few days. Upon arrival we were greeted by a very friendly staff and the room they give us on the 2nd floor was small - just enough space to go around the bed, there is only one window overlooking the public balcony/hallway so we couldn't leave the curtains open. Our first night was quite short since the Bar/Club/Guesthouse Utopia is next door and they play very loud music all night - I am not a light sleeper but I felt I was right in the middle of Utopia.
The next morning we had breakfast which was delicious but you almost eat on the street since there is no fence or edge from a very busy road. We spoke with Verona, the owner and she understood our disapointment and lack of sleep and told us that one of the bigger room was available in 2 days but it would be as noisy so we declined. Verona was very nice in helping us with a reservation at the Hotel La Reserve next to Victory Beach. For the same price as Coolabah ($45) we had a big room with a large balcony where we could watch the sunset every evening. And we did go to Utopia few days later but we could also get a good night sleep upon our return at La Reserve.
