“Pefect relaxing”
Reviewed January 15, 2013

Everything here is perfect to relax at this beach which I came across Thailand to here for few days enjoying. I definitely recommend to everyone and will be back again soon in the next vacation trip.

“Nice beach with backpacker feel”
Reviewed January 14, 2013

Nice beach and great restaurants. It is laid-back and free of russian dominance. We came here several times for the italian Papa Pepo restaurant, as well as for a beach-stay at one of the other bars. Great place to relax. Some restaurants / bars have hammocks :-)

“only nice beach in sihanoukville”
Reviewed January 13, 2013

We are a family of 4 (9 yo twins) who generally would not avoid the bar scene if the beach and restaurants were great. In sihanoukville the bar scene is utterly disgusting (and I can take a lot) - I'd have to be completely plastered to not notice the sewage and gross restrooms everywhere. Otres beach was a world away (and difficult to get to, but worth it) in a Gilligan's island sort of way. Super quiet, clean (we saw no garbage anywhere in July - perhaps it's different in peak season). We wanted to see undeveloped areas, and this is a lovely one. Get here quick, because Hilton and other hotel chains are quickly buying up land - this beach will be unrecognizable in 3-5 years. We have not been to Thai beaches so cannot compare. Most places are low on amenities, so it feels like camping (except for Secret Garden - the big find here!)

“A relaxing place to go”
Reviewed January 13, 2013

Can't wait to return to this place. We swam, sun tanned, rented scooters, had a few drinks and had some great food.
