I stayed in Cambodia for the Xmas holiday with my family for 2 weeks. Sihanoukville was the last leg of the trip and were we spent the most time. What people need to realise is that a 5 star in Cambodia will not be a 5 star in Thailand or a modern country. It is still a growing nation in terms of tourism. Consider it as Thailand over 20 yrs ago!
As for the Sokha beach, the service was ok some staff were friendly and got to know us since we stayed 5 days. There were a select few members of staff who didn't want to be there serving anyone but that's just life.
The hotel was clean for the most part but it changes as you leave the resort. So in theory, the resort was clean because you must compare it to how the area was and not what you are used to. The pools were clean and beach was beautiful.
The dinners were good but pricey for a family of 5. We did eat at the dinner Xmas buffet and were very satisfied but often went to town to eat. Just made sense since you could take a Tuktuk down the road and eat a feast just as great for 1/3 of the price. People did get uneasy stomachs and needed Imodium AD no matter where they ate. If you have a weak stomach, stick to what you know and try not to be daring.
Overall our experience was good and I would recommend this hotel because it's the best hotel in the area.
