It was a wonderful stay, from the airport pick up to the check out, everything was fine and taken care of without problems.
The property is located at a local village, which is about 15 minutes from town. That worked fine for us since we liked the peaceful environ without the hassles in the main town. Also, the hotel can arrange a local transport to town that costs just a few dollars.
Our room was clean and spacious, just next to the swimming pool. Since there are like about 10 standalone houses, the place never felt crowded and our needs were taken care of right away.
We had a romantic dinner at the pavilion on a lotus pond about 2 minutes of walk from the hotel. I also asked for a surprise for my partner, since it was his birthday, and they did so discreetly. The floral arrangement was a nice touch.
We booked two tours with the hotel, one to the Angkor Wat and another to the local village. Both were very nice. The guide to the temple knew how to avoid the crowd and advise taking pictures from interesting angles at the temple. I would also recommend the tour to the village, which gives a glimpse of local life (and part of the tour fees goes to the benefits of the village as well).
We liked that some of the hotel staff are actually from the village and the hotel is engaged in helping local people.
The only issue we had during our stay is that one morning someone played the music really loud in the village at 5am and woke us up. It was because of a wedding and the management apologized for the inconvenience (although no fault of its). We had to wake up early that day anyway for the Angkor Wat trip, so it wasn't a huge problem.
In terms of value, it was great. We booked a package that included the room, breakfasts, cocktails at the restaurants and the pool bar as well as massages. All in all, a very friendly, modern hotel, and it is highly recommended.
