We enjoyed our stay here. Very basic rooms, which is fine by us. The staff were very friendly and always helpful. The only problem we did find was the music from the bars further around the beach! ALL night, until at least 4am, we could hear the base. As it was carried along the water and we were staying up high so travelled up. Would hate to be staying on that side of the beach. So, not the Coves fault. I would recommend staying here if you are not in your 20's and are not there to get wasted every night, as it is away from the parties. The downside to Sihanoukville, lots of kids selling on the beach. DO NOT buy from them! Give back to the local people by buying from properly run NGO shops. It only encourages Child Trafficking and Child Abuse which unfortunately is a huge problem here!

Not a lot to say about our time here...it is however where we met beautiful Yunee. She quickly became our 3rd daughter. Her mother gave her to her 21yr old cousin (manager of resort) in exchange for money, so she could leave town. Yunee's father is in prison. So she is very fortunate that she has family that loves her. she ended up coming with us …
... couple sat on the aisle fold down seats.
Turns out this couple made a booking for the 7.30 bus but the year was put down as 2015, so they didn’t get collected at their hotel. They got a phone call telling them to immediately Tuk-Tuk to their office and their bus passed them on the way to Sihanoukville. So from this you can gather they weren’t too pleased and they were lumped onto our bus with the lowest priority, hence their ****** aisle ...
... alike lazily sipping on their exotic drinks. The music was loud and the bass
was high, giving the ocean air a pulse that seemed to quicken ours. Gazing out into the ocean you could just barely make out the silhouettes of dozens of the long tail and junk boats we had seen earlier. There must have been at least 20 of them anchored just almost out of sight in
the darkness. They watched the night and festivities unfold as they had done ...
... to how Asia-nised I've become that the presence of vermin on the table isn't reason enough to consider a different restaurant (I just didn't order meat). We ventured out of town and rode down the bamboo railway which was a novel experience, but the highlight was seeing 2 million bats pour out of a cave at dusk and watching them drift across the sky like black clouds.
In Koh Kong we rented mopeds and explored the threatened mangrove forests and nearby waterfalls. I ...
... sunbathing, swimming and we took a walk through the jungle to '4 kilometre beach' which was so beautiful (I feel like I'm running out of adjectives to describe how amazing this place is haha)
We got the slow boat back to the mainland for one last night in Sihanoukville before heading on to Kampot.
**seem to have misplaced my camera lead somewhere so can't upload some of the pictures from koh rong.. Keep an eye ...
