Reef Resort
Ranked #16 of 80 Hotels in Sihanoukville
Reviewed 4 May 2014

Great location on a busy city-center street. Bars and restaurants all over the hotel vicinity. Good value for money, room was basic but clean and comfortable. Safe, friendly staff and a good place to chill out at the pool table with beer. We saw many places nearby offering boat services to the nearby islands too but we had ours arranged beforehand.

Stayed: May 2014, travelled as a couple

Firstly, this is the 2nd time we've stayed at the reef resort. The first time was about 1.5 years ago, and we really enjoyed our stay then. This time though, the whole experience was a bit ... bleh ~~

- The lock on our room was wobbly, and the privacy bolt on the inside was broken.
- The aircon, while "working" technically, couldn't be switched off or adjusted. The remote for the aircon didn't work either.
- The ceiling fan was VERY noisy.
- Insufficient water pressure in the showers.
- The attached restaurant served sub-standard food for highish prices in view of the quality of the food served (refer to my separate review for the Reef Resort Restaurant).
- We wanted to go for a swim in the evenings, but the floating debris (leaves, twigs, dead insects) quickly made us change our mind.
- Beds were uncomfortable, both of us woke each morning aching all over: the mattress was too thin and too hard, the sheet too small, and the blanket so thin it may as well just be for decoration ... plus the tassels on the "blanket" were so ticklish, they aggravated my hayfever every time I moved.
- The room REALLY needs an additional rubbish bin: it's the little touches more than anything that make or break a hotel ...

On Agoda, this is advertised as a 2-minute walk to the beach -- It's NOT.

This stay, everything seemed to be a lot more broken down compared to our previous stay; doubt we'll be back again. Plenty of newer and better maintained places in sihanoukville these days, within a similar distance to the beach.

As other reviews have mentioned it's a bit on the pricey side, but it's clean, quiet, centrally located and has well functioning AC and a pool. It's the best option I've found so far in the Serendipity Beach area.

We stayed here as we moved from our last place that started to smell for some reason. They initially did not have any rooms but managed to sort us out. The rooms are little on the more expensive side compared to other places near by, but the rooms are very clean and cleaned every day. Safe in the room. Pool was nice and clean and the restaurant does some very nice burgers :-)

Lots of places are available to stay at in the area. Many are geared towards the backpacker and come complete with bedbugs or worse. The Reef Resort was a surprisingly modern, clean and comfortable motel with a nice pool and restaurant. It's likely more expensive than other places in the area but, after the LONG drive down to Serendipity beach from the airport, it was great to walk into a modern, clean room with a nice, comfy bed.

I came to go diving and only stayed for one night. I found it so comfortable though, that I ended up coming back for another night after my diving trips.

The place is foreign owned (by an American) and maintains a higher standard than other local places. The food at the restaurant is nothing special at all but it seemed clean and was convenient.

This is one of the more expensive places in Sihanoukville and pretends to be one of the best.
i regret there was no room at Monkey Republic two doors down which was better and at about 15% of the price.The bed was of a poor quality, the toilet broke in the one night that we were there and it was almost like the swimming pool was inside, in the bathroom!
Was woken up in the middle of the night by a drunk idiot banging on our door. During the day i looked around me at other guests and there were plenty of candidates for the culprit. There are lots of security cameras and a guard but this is clearly only superficial.
Oh yeah, many rooms and a total of 4 loungers by the pool. And one of them had a broken leg!
