Stayed 2 nights at Don't Tell Mama in a bungalow - the room and bathroom were very clean, beds had mosquito nets - and the best part - fans! The fan made all the difference and gave me a great night's sleep. The bed was comfortable, and the beach was only a minute walk away (Otres). And a beautiful beach it was, much more peaceful than anywhere else in Sihanoukville. A perfect balance between having a good selection of restaurants/bars, but without being overcrowded and roudy like the busier beaches in town. In my opinion, Don't Tell Mama looked cleaner than the other guesthouses/hostels right on the beach in Otres.
The owner/manager was a very nice German lady who was quite helpful. Overall a very pleasant place to stay in Otres.
Handy tip for the coffee lovers (& needers): The cafe/restaurant across the road from Don't Tell Mama, right on the beach called 'Papa Pippos' had the best coffee in Otres, hands down. And I tried most places in my few days there.
