TravelPod Member ReviewsDon Bosco Hotel School Sihanoukville
Love, love, love this hotel! We went for two days and stayed for a week. This spotless, sparkling hotel is a real treat, from bathrobes and sandals in the wardrobe to hot showers and fluffy white towels, the room was huge with a fridge and colour television, beautiful bathroom and large bright windows which were tinted so no one could see into your room, we felt like we were in a luxurious four star hotel but with the price tag of a two star hotel. The staff are students from the college, based in the hotel area and are charming. They are obviously learning on the job and as such a few small mistakes are made, but for us they added to the charm of the hotel as the students just want everything to be perfect for your stay. Nothing is too much trouble and they take great care, time and attention over every little thing. A little patience on the part of the guest is nothing to ask when young people are learning and trying so hard to have everything perfect. From the warm welcome when you arrive to the equally warm welcome you get every time you step into the hotel reception area, the warm smiles and conversations with the students made our time here very special. The swimming pool is big enough to actually swim in, and if you have children the shallow end is spacious for play also. The food was spectacular, very tasty and all home made, check out the breakfast croissants and the pumpkin ravioli for dinner, oh and don't forget the silky smooth ice cream, yum yum. We would heartily recommend this hotel, do not be put off by the location, it is quiet and a little out of the way, but the hotel has a shuttle mini bus service three times a day and it is cheap and easy to hire a scooter. The wifi in the rooms is very strong and we were able to skype home, not something we have been able to do in all our hotels. We really loved our stay here and were sad to leave, we could have stayed another week or two if time permitted, the staff and young people made our time here very special and we hope to return sometime in the future.

We have arrived down at the beach near a place called Sihanoukville (awful to pronounce) and we have found a complete gem of a hotel. We are staying in Don Bosco's Hotel School, it is a college for local young people who come here to train in the tourist and hospitality industry, they have a week at college then a week at school throughout their …
... Probably about a kilometre long, with only. Handful of people, there was at least 2-300m between each of us. I cannot explain how perfect the setting was. We swam, read our books, played cards, swam some more and took endless photographs of the blue blue sea and white sands.
On the way back from this beach we stopped for a drink at a beach bar, here we sat and ...
... 5, ok. I paid and got in. The van filled with a assortment of local people. There was one family with 2 small kids. Another elderly woman and a younger women, with two kids. Another single lady, and a single guy riding shotgun. They looked at me with bewilderment, and perhaps they were just reflecting my emotions. I smiled, that always helps - and got on. One of the small girls took a liking to me, and started smiling at me. I smiled back, and the ice was broken. ...
... more info to promote potential ecotourism for mature CHE villages. In this village, we could choose private accommodation in a cottage or guest house (with own bathroom, our choice!) for $6 pp/night, or guesthouse with shared bathroom for $5 or homestay for $3. Meals were either at the visitor centre or cooked by the host, which we chose. What a pleasant spot we were given in ...
... French kitchen would have been without Kampot pepper. Next, continue on your bike past the temple, check out the fishing boats and villages, watch the kids playing at school, then stop to see families tending large salt flats. It makes for a great day and one gets to see the processing of salt and pepper in the same day. I'd also suggest taking the night river boat to see the fireflies. The open boat beaches in front of large trees where hundreds of fireflies put on ...
