A Swiss Family Robinson experience

What we say:
Tree Top is true to its name and worth a night's stay for the novelty alone of the two rooms on very high stilts with views across the trees to the hill or the ocean. The rooms are charming, made entirely of wood, with power 24/7 though no hot water in the bathroom which, whilst private, is a few steps below the room. The placement of the tree houses right next to the road struck us as slightly unfortunate. In general, rooms seem to have been arranged around the pepper trees, pineapple patches and mangoes, meaning the layout of the large grounds can be a bit confusing. The focal point is the large restaurant deck with wonderful sea views, WiFi and well-priced food, but sadly short on comfy sofas. The range of accommodation choices -- a $5 room with a shared bathroom, an ensuite $20 bungalow or those tree houses -- makes this a good choice for friends on differing budgets. Made from bamboo, wood and rush matting, some rooms are showing signs of age and some wildlife is to be expected. Little English is spoken here, which sort of adds to its rustic allure, but the female manager is a treat.

I was there a month ago (in february 2012). The guesthouse has different bungalow, start at 4US$ up to 25US$.
the cheapest one are basic, one fan, one chair, one double bed with moskito net, shared bathroom. But still nice. And you only have to share the bathroom between 2 bungalow!
Then more it get expensive, more the bungalow is bigger, or higter..
They have free wireless available in restaurant and in bungalow. for people who don't have computer, they have 2 computers available and people can get one hour free/day (problably more as they don't check how long you stay on the computer, people just try to don't stay too long if someone is waiting).
When you check in, you get one free small bottle of water, and one plate of fruit.
The staff is really really nice, and the place is beautiful, the garden, the restaurant..have really nice decoration. I would recommand everyone to stay there! one of the best value in kep (even the best one i think!)

A lot to be desired
We came here after botanica was closed. It seemed endearing. 10 dollars a night for a double fanned room. I don't know if it was private or not, it sure didn't feel that way. Although we has our own bathroom our ''bungalow'' looked like a long hunt that was divided into 4. The hammocks outside each were a nice touch. That was until they placed another couple in the room directly next to us despite the other rooms being free. Talk about awkward. Every giggle could be heard.
The restaurant was over priced for what they served. Mediocre is an understatement but it's nourishment. I especially enjoyed the protein added to my soup- our first night I discovered a massive winged bug in my soup. I told them but they just brought me a new spoon. Here is when the lack of language was a little trying. But I get it, it's natural and whatever but with what they serve, they should atleast try to keep little critters out.
Unable to tell you where anything is or what there is to do in kep. I guess that's the adventure-and the Internet was handy too.
The matriarch of the guesthouse is kind beyond words and would suggest dealin with her than the boys. At least she didn't pick her nose in front of us when we were trying to figure out how to pay.
Overall, okay. Too much money for what they offered.
