The hotel was pretty good, but the focus of this review is for Theoun, our tuk-tuk driver that works for the hotel. We did three days of temples and we wanted to see as many as possible while avoiding the crowds. Theoun has 11 years of experience and knew when to visit each location that would have the least number of people. It was incredible. We had Ta Prohm, one of the most popular, all to ourselves! Theoun was very friendly, attentive, and knowledgeable. I would definitely suggest you get started before sunrise, as that helps with crowd issues. Anyway, if you're in need of a tuk-tuk driver, Theoun is the best!
