We stayed at Carpe Diem from 26th Feb until 1st March. We arrived super early (circa 5.30am!) and despite waking up the owners at this early hour, they greeted us with a warm smile and a much needed coffee.
The bungalows are quaint and clean and sat back from the beach which is a short walk or inexpensive tuk-tuk/moto ride away.
The owners, an Italian family, were warm, friendly and made us feel like a part of their family during our stay. One evening, they even cooked us a beautiful dinner and we all sat round, ate and drank together for the evening.
Tours and transport and easy to book, either through the owners or a local tour agency close to the beach.
We initially had planned stay only 3 nights, but found Carpe Diem so friendly and relaxing, we stayed an extra night.
The nearby beaches (Otres 1 and 2) are beautiful and the water is clean. A much better option than the crowded more touristy beaches closer to Sihanoukville.
Overall - we would highly recommend staying at Carpe Diem and hope to visit again in the future.
