We stayed there 4 days and had a very good time there.
The rooms are clean and spacious. Every room has a terrace with a bath tube outside and a couple of chairs to relax in the evening after visiting the stunning temples of Angkor Wat.
It is very close to the night market and the Pub Street meaning that you can walk there at night to grab a drink and get something to eat.
If you dont feel like going out after a long day, well don't! The food is very good (and the chef is always smiling! Great guy!) in the resort and in line with the city prices so there is no surprise and no overcharge linked to the place.
Service is great, there are some hickups once in a while but nothing major and everything is always dealt with with a nice smile and a lot of calm.
I really have nothing mean to say about the place, only compliments! Works for couples, families and friends.
On the previous comments I read. Yes, the swimming pool is not made for a tri athlete but for a relaxing time after a long day of walking, its perfect!
Also, I have read that some people where complaining about the waterfall sound but to be honest that didn't disturb me at all as it is shut off after 10 pm (or maybe earlier) and doesnt start until late in the morning. I actually felt it gave a very peaceful feel to the place (zen attitude).
Oh one last thing, they can provide the tuck tuck and the guide so dont worry too much about this. For the visit the first day, just make sure you have 40USD per adult to get access to the site.
All in a wonderful experience in the GB, if I come back (which I am planing to for the rainy season), will definitely go there again.
