Koh Kong Resort
Ranked #3 of 3 Hotels in Koh Kong
Reviewed 24 June 2011

Had 3 days reserved at this resort. Upon check-in, I realized all the reviews on how unfriendly the hotel staff listed here were true. They were very unhelpful, almost with a rude tone and did not speak a word of English!! Very frustrating.

The hotel is run down and caters solely to local gamblers (NOT) foreign tourists. It's your basic "run the casino and run-down the hotel" scam... Management could not care less about the hotel, just the 70's style ancient casino they are operating.

Hotel facilities are in near abandoned conditions, waiters can't be found anywhere...

They dont even have safes in all rooms and claim they are a gaming hotel!!
Food was worse than your NYC chinese street food cart after being left abandoned for a week.... You got cold fried (greenish) eggs for breakfast and rancid, stale noodles.. An airline breakfast would be at the level of Morton's next to this fiasco offered by the Koh Kong resort.

The water in the bathroom came out (literally) brown for the first 15 minutes after I turned on the shower.... Nice....

Overpriced, super overrated. I would not even recommend this hotel to my enemies.
My wife and I were SO disappointed, we cut our losses and checked-out a day earlier due to how unpleasant the stay was. Ruined our time in Koh Kong. I recommend staying at a guest house better located (or) just cross over to the Thai border side for superior resorts and service.

Stayed one night at the resort b/c the Oasis Bungalow Resort was full (stayed there two nights). We stayed across the road from the main (and fancy) part of the hotel. Our room was only $35! And that included free breakfast and use of the pool - which is one of the best in all of Cambodia! The beach at the hotel is not the greatest.

We went to Safari World and rode the free shuttle from the hotel! The kids loved the ride from the hotel and the shows at Safari World too!

If you have the money I am sure the "nice" rooms are very elegant and would be very nice.

Room Tip: Call the hotel direct to get the $35 rate.

There seemed to be loads of staff going about their business in the hotel but practically no guests to be seen (as the previous poster says they were all in the casino) which made it feel like a 'ghost hotel', a fully staffed hotel with no guests...
The free form pool is good although when you go to the pool it isn't obvious where the lockers/ changing rooms are, and if like me your room wasn't in the main part of the hotel but over the road in the extension, you're probably not going to want to cross the road(with all the motos lurking around) in your swim wear!
Not all the staff spoke very good English which caused a few difficulties. The included 'American breakfast' was awful - a buffet of cold fried eggs and bread!
My room wasn't the cleanest and when I arrived the cleaner came in and was spraying the floor with something (why?) and saying something to me in Thai/Cambodian.

Stayed only one night at the Koh Kong Resort before crossing the border into Thailand, which was very strange as some of the areas of the hotel exactly mirrored the Sokha Beach Hotel in Sihanoukville. The hotel is located about twenty yards from the border crossing and obviously caters for Thais gambling in the hotel casino. The hotel currency is the Thai Baht and all the food was Thai. The hotel is new, spotlessly clean, with large well furnished rooms and good bathrooms. There is a large freeform swimming pool, in large grounds, overlooking the sea and a large brightly lit restaurant which incorporates a sort of karaoke / evening entertainment. The beach was not anything special and I am not sure I would want to swim in the sea here. During the day it was very peaceful with no one to be seen, we had the pool to ourselves as all the other guests were in the casino, one or two might venture out occasionally to have their photo taken in the hotel grounds.. All in all a rather strange hotel with no bar and totally geared to gambling, but it was a pleasant stay and very comfortable and good value for money, especially as a passing 100 baht gamble in a slot machine rewarded as with a win of 11,000 baht.
