Suited to kids
You can’t miss the motel-style Beach House, perched on the east bank of Kep’s main beach.
The very prettily furnished 14 double and twin rooms are arranged over two floors, with long, shared balconies from which to enjoy uninterrupted views of the beach and sunset. The two family rooms, though they don’t face the ocean, are the only rooms with a private veranda. That said, all the rooms are spotless -- and we mean spotless -- and they’re kitted out with good comfy beds and all the amenities to make a vacation comfortable, including both air-con and fans, as well as TVs and super-hot showers in the large bathrooms. The small swimming pool lined in stone, with a jacuzzi, and the attached bar and restaurant are shady places to lounge. Beach House is suited to families and also attracts older couples not too concerned with seeking bargains, but it’s a solid mid-range option with friendly staff.
