“One good place to stay out of many visited”
Reviewed January 12, 2014

Stayed a lot of places but loved this place.
Rooms very comfortable.Tried most everything on the menu, never quite finished all of it. (Go for Chicken Surprise & chocolate cake). The beach is just beautifil, the water warm to swim in at 06:00.
The proprietors and staff very personable.(Swedish & English proprietors) Cambodian staff have pretty good English: It puts us Brits to shame.
New Years Eve was a brilliant atmosphere ending in mass fireworks and Chinese lanterns, the party carried on further down the beach.
The Saturday late night 'market ' Otres Beach next to the estuary (all kinds of food stalls, jewellery, clothes, arty things etc) and best of all the variety of live acoustic music.
Local transport transfers:Tuk Tuk travel: Haggle the price from Sihanoukville bus station(s) to Sea Garden is currently $4 or $5, maybe a bit more late at night. Don't get Tuk'd up for $15+

Sea Garden Jungle Beach Bungalows:
If you want to stay in a place that does not have booming music , where you can read a good book in peace, drink, eat and sleep at very good rates, with sunshine most every day in this season come here.
I'll be back soon.

Room Tip: Swimming pool review means: Sea (pretty clean). Room service review : means clean, tidy etc

My husband and I recently spent a few nights on Otres Beach at Sea Garden, and cannot recommend the place enough to anyone who is looking for total relaxation. The property is one of the most well- run, friendly places we have ever stayed. We were there over the busy Christmas and New Year period and the owner and staff did everything they could to accommodate us, providing excellent service and genuine hospitality. The bungalows are located right on the beach and are really quiet in the evening, great if you just want to totally chill out. The food was delicious and reasonably priced and they have a great drink selection- pretty much everything you need to totally unwind for a few days, or weeks! Will definitely go back if in the area.

I really don't understand the latest reviews. We just got back from our Cambodia trip and loved this place. And that really says something because this was the first time in years we didn't stay in a 4/5 star resort. Sea garden is of course not a 5 star resort but for what it is it is very very nice and definitely the best place to stay on Otres Beach. Especially because it is one of the few places with bungalows right on the beach. Most places are at the other side of the street, so not on the beach at all. We stayed for 7 days so we had more then enough time to see how this place really is.

We traveled as a family with 2 kids from 3 and 5 years old. Sea Garden is not a typical family place (we were the only family at the time) but that didn't matter. We had 2 attached beach huts and the kids loved their little house. There were more families staying Otres Beach so they had enough friends during our stay. The sea is very calm and it stays shallow for a long time. Our kids still wear life jackets but with or without if kids can swim, it is safe to let them play in sea. You can watch from your lounge chair without being scared to death they will drown! And also for me I like it when the sea is calm like that.

It is exactly as you see on the pictures. The owner, his wife and the staff were very friendly. They gave us all the information we wanted and helped us arrange some things. Besides that the staff went out of their way to make make it a pleasant trip for my kids which it was. My daughter was crying when we left!!

They have dogs like mentioned in reviews before and they love their dogs. But putting the dogs before guests as mentioned before was really not the case!!

The food was very good and value for money here is the best. The Italian place next door is nice for a bite. But they are cheap. Serving a glass full of ice cubes for example with a little bit of fresh juice and alcoholic drinks with almost no alcohol. I don't like that! The pizza is nice though. I don't drink but my husband said the drinks were very good at Sea Garden.

When I have to say 1 bad thing it must be the showers. They were clean but the water is cold. But it's like this at all the places at Otres Beach. For us it was a small price to pay for a lovely holiday!

Room Tip: All the rooms are good and right on the beach but the best is maybe the one closest to the sea.

If you’re headed to Otres, you’re probably going there to enjoy the quieter more chill scene compared to the rest of Sihanoukville. We stayed 9 nights at Sea Garden and enjoyed our stay very much. It’s towards the end of Otres so you can get away from the small parties further down the beach but be just near all at the same time. The room was nice, the food was good, and the staff were very friendly. The only negative was the brown shower water, but that comes standard with all of the hotels on Otres so just be prepared… Thanks for the enjoyable stay, Steve!!!

Stayed here for 3 nights recently. Great location, right on the beach. The bungalows are clean and the bathrooms were also always clean. Good food, good service, friendly staff. Everything you need for a nice stay in some bungalows on the beach, and great place deal for the cost. Would definitely stay again.

friendly little place, super cheap, if your looking for luxury this is probably not your best option but for us (a young couple in our 30's this was great)
Bungalows right on the beach great view no air con, pretty sticky but that's all part of the fun.
the place was being renovated when we were there but no real worries as we are a pretty laid back couple, the showers and toilets are all share facilities ( 2 in total ) cold water but to be honest that was quit nice with how hot it was.
Drinks are cheap, food was good (owned by an English guy and his Cambodian wife)
WARNING: watch were you walk at night, there is a concrete step leading to the bathroom and at night there is no light, my partner stubbed his toe (Badly) should have had stitches in the middle of the night, take a torch!
all in all great quiet place, will definitely go back.

Room Tip: get a bungalow on the beach front.
