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 …
... and asked if they had any room availability. Luckily there had been a cancellation so we were in for 2 nights. We spent most of our time chilling on the beautiful beach and topping up the tans before meeting my mum and dad in a few days time. There were loads of locals traipsing up and down the beach pedalling their wares and offering beauty treatments like threading, massages and mani/pedi's. I got talking to one girl who called herself ...
... bank. The ATMs here charge 10% plus the rate the bank charges back home however the Canadian ones are free. We walked for a while and ended up getting very lost. We decided to get a tuk tuk which seemed to be very expensive so were persuaded to use a motorbike taxi! Our first time on a scooter out here so we were both a bit nervous especially as there was three of us on one bike! But it was fine! We arrived at the ATM to find there was no cash so went to find another. ...
... sites, with of course
the surrounding temples all getting a fair nod of appreciation from the
millions of tourists who no doubt come here each year. I think we brushed
shoulders with 90% of these million during our afternoon, sometimes even
walking was difficult, as we were having to navigate the constant photographing
of literally everything that they saw. I wonder how many of these people here
on this day spend less than 50% of their time here actually looking with ...
... We returned back to the hotel about 2pm. At about 3.30pm we went for a massage in the hotel. I had a Khmer massage which was about pressure and pulling. At one point I think I had the little Khmer girl on top of me. I felt so good after that massage. My muscles felt relaxed and stretched. My back benefited too. Everyone enjoyed their massage. Marilyn went back to her room following hers and mum and I went into the ...
