Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

I recently dined at this restaurant, and unfortunately, my experience was disappointing. The food quality left much to be desired, and despite the servers being kind and smiling, their understanding of our requests seemed limited. However, a pleasant surprise was the surprisingly affordable price of...the wine. Additionally, the hotel's beautiful beach provides a picturesque setting, adding a positive note to this mixed experience. I hope the establishment can improve the quality of its cuisine to offer a more satisfying experience for guests.More

Best restaurant on pagoda beach. We came for a great breakfast every morning and even though it was a bit of a walk from our hotel, came back for supper at night.

My husband and I visited here tonight for a few happy hour drinks and dinner. Cocktails and beers were really good and reasonably priced and the food was absolutely delicious! I had the Honey Ginger Chicken and my husband had the Chicken Amok, then we...shared a Chocolate Fudge Brownie. The menu has a good selection of Asian and western food and was very reasonably priced compared to nearby resorts. To top it off, the ambience is excellent, very relaxed and well looked after surroundings! Would definitely recommend and visit again!More

Best food on the island; really fantastic. The staff are lovely and the cocktails are super. Everything is great. We are staying at the Island’s most expensive hotel (Royal Sands) but came here for lunch at Secret Garden. The food is without doubt much better...and much better value than its significantly more expensive competitor. Beautiful view - white beach with turquoise sea. Really recommend.More

My husband and I stayed at the Secret Garden in Pagoda beach for 03 nights, wish we could extend our stay! The property is clean, well managed and very friendly staff and owners of course!!! The white sand beach is so far the best we...have seen in Cambodia, very clean and beautiful water. Quality of food, cocktails are supreme and totally worth trying everything out of the menu 😉 If you want a peaceful, relaxing, ocean and beach kinda holiday, this is the right place to explore!

We stayed 10 nights at Secret Garden and had all our meals at their own restaurant during our stay. The menu was excellent, food was fresh and delicious. No difficulties to choose what to eat. Kids menu was really good, our 2y and 6y had...all the portions and liked all of them. The staff was extremely friendly which made the service truly authentic.

We had the pleasure to stay in the Secret Garden bungalows for 4 days/3 nights. It was with pain in our hearts we had to leave this place. In total 8 bungalows, all located right at the beach. Walking in the morning directly from your...bungalow in the pure white sand to the turquoise sea.. yeah, this is what paradise must look like. We saw several beaches in Koh Rong, but the part of Pagoda beach in front of this hotel was by far the best we encountered. Room was specious, as well as the -outside- jungle shower. Somewhat basic look, but very comfy with good working a/c and good bed. Friendly and helpfull staff. Restaurant is top of the bill. Just one disadvantage: we ate so much that we probably need to sport intensively for the rest of the year to equalise this. Don’t expect any night life, here. But if you are looking for the perfect place to recharge, this is the place to be! Highly recommended!More

Stayed 3 nights in another place on the beach and the moved here. Before we moved here we had eaten at the restaurant and had a few drinks. All fantastic. The food service and drinks are the best. The pool is so clean and beautiful,...almost a Japanese feel about it. Laying in it overlooking the white beach and blue sea. The beach is open allowing a good breeze and view. Never had any problem with sun beds or shade. The room is very comfortable, Good air conditioning. Big comfortable bed . You have a sliding door to the toilet and another door to the out door shower. The front door is a sliding double glazed door . This is important as the fishermen go out and about in the early morning and back and forth . So good sound proofing is a help.The wifi, if needed is amazingly fast,notice they have a few boosters. The team at this place work so hard and never stop. Ok getting here. Do not do as I did and ignore the warnings not to take speedy ferry. We arrived with them. Two hours late on departure' advised 1 hr 15min to get to pagoda beach. Took over two hrs . Changed at the main port on the island to a long boat and then a truck. Take the direct pagoda beach ferry, 30 to 45 minutes and 10 min beach walk to hotel. These leaves from pier one and is nowhere near speedy ferry. Make sure your tuktuk or taxi driver knows this.More

Originally booked with The Secret Garden (TSG) at old mainland site, but they contacted me to say they were moving to the island and transferred the booking. So glad they did! We had bungalow 3 that opened directly onto the beach. Jaw dropping outlook. Room...was simple but spacious. Tea and coffee making facilities. Perfect location at end of beach so no one walking past. Sea crystal clear and amazing turquoise. Sand like white flour. Restaurant very good and drinks reasonable, especially during happy hours. We didn't want to leave. Direct speed boat very convenient but can be hard to find. It's thought Gate 1 by the container port - look out for the white container on the doc which is actually air conditioned waiting room. New Beach Hotel just up the slope if you want a drink if you arrive early.More
