Our family of 5 spent 5 nights in the family room which has two interconnecting rooms with a bathroom each. The rooms were spacious and clean with a lovely big balcony. The pool area is pretty but the pool was very warm, so much so that there was no relief from the hot day. The beach area and restaurant were pleasant, especially at sunset. The food was really good- some of the owners are from Texas, USA and they did a few killer tex- mex options. Important things to know:This end of the beach is very quiet, Secret Garden seemed to be the only place open. It takes about 15 mins by tuk tuk from The Golden Lions statue. Other than directly in front of a cafe or accommodation, Otres and Occheutel beaches are disgustingly filthy. From Secret Garden you can take a 30 minute walk up the beach ( watch your step) to the busier end of the beach where you have a wide choice of places to eat, hangout and watch the scene, or you could have a quieter experience at Secret Garden. One day we walked all the way to Serendipity (90minutes) but the undeveloped southern end of Occheutel was absolutely putrid and depressing.
Overall, Secret Garden was a pleasant place to stay with our family and if we found ourselves in Sihanoukville again, we would stay there. Hopefully with sensitive development and improved sanitation and education, this town will reach the potential it's location so deserves.
