Recomendations for Koh Rong Sanloem or Koh Rong

I would like to relax on a quiet beach and drink some cold beer...

Can anyone recommend a beach bungalow accommodation on either of the above where it is not too busy and packed tightly with other hotels bungalows and backpackers? It would be a bonus if there are a few places other than accommodation itself to grab a drink, but not a show stopper. My budget would be up to $45

I'm not a big beach/island guy so surely someone will come with a decent recommendation, but I find the whole place has been overrun in the past few years. Quieter on the main beaches.

I just spent 3 days at Lonely Beach, at the northern tip of Koh Rong.

Remote, very quiet, great coral snorkeling and they have a nice beach bar. $30 a night for a bungalow.

I loved it

My family and I recently stayed at Tree House Bungalows on Koh Rong. It was our first trip to Koh Rong...and we loved it. Tree House Bungalows lies at the end of the beach. There are three Guest Houses there that are a bit nicer and cater to a bit older non backpacker crowd. They are Paradise, White Beach, and Tree House. They are all very nice. They run 30.00-70.00 per night. They are very quiet, yet....you are only a 15 minute walk down the beach to party central. The Tree House bungalows were especially nice for my family...as it is around a small point. You effectively have a private beach. My two young sons could run wild without us having to worry.

I would highly recommend visiting.

On Koh Rong I recommend http://www.soksanbeachresort.com/

Prices should be under $100 per night. They have a speed boat over, not sure how long it would take. When I went I had a chopper drop me off from Phnom Penh to directly on the island, landing area on resort grounds and they have a ATV collect you from the chopper with your bags.

First time on Koh Rong Sanloem I stayed at a place called Sweet Dream. Two Ukrainian guys who owned it. I paid $45/day. incl. dinner. Was quite nice, because it had like mirror-glass walls, so you could look out - but others couldn't look in. And it was right on the beach. The second time I stayed at some place some kids sold me when I landed. Was much cheaper, but can't remember how much. Still a good place, although not quite as good.

On Koh Rong I stayed on Monkey Island. Was probably more directed towards backpackers. Pretty basic. Also cost $40. All places had fans, but no air-con. Electricity & internet can be spotty. Monkey Island didn't have an outlet in the hut. Had to go to the cafe to charge laptop/phone.
