We stayed for four nights in September. Booked online but emailed the hotel with some questions beforehand - all quickly responded with lots of information about the hotel and answering my questions.
Location: about 10 mins from Siem Reap by tuk tuk, down a fairly bumpy dirt track road but our driver always managed to avoid the worst bumps. Too far to walk to town but when you have a driver for 12 hours a day why would you want to do that?
Facilities: two decent size swimming pools, plenty of sun loungers and your own tuk tuk driver for your stay. Really good having the same driver each day as you get to know them a bit. We arranged a private tour guide so our driver took the three of us, the hotel had no issues with this. Our driver (Sok) was always on time and waited for us or returned to an agreed location for a pickup. We didn't use the gym or spa.
Dining: restaurant is really good with a good selection of local and western dishes. Drinks are sensibly priced. Breakfast was a lovely fruit & parties platter followed with eggs and bacon, delicious every day. We dined in the restaurant a couple of times and the food was really well presented.
Staff: all excellent, get to know you by name and very very helpful. Quick check in and always welcomed back from temple tours with refreshing face towels.
Rooms: we stayed in one of the explorer rooms. More than spacious enough for 4 nights, large bathroom. Space to is outside but not much to look at. Only thing they could improve would be to put more coat hangers in the room and a larger safe (couldn't keep my ipad in there).
Downside: currently adding 10 rooms to the resort so there is building work in the day, it's low season so I can't blame them for doing this and to be fair it is only background noise and the builders were finishes by the time we returned from temple tours. They seem to be refreshing some of the rooms too so that's good for future stays.
Overall, this is a fabulous hotel. Great staff, fab food and having your own personal tuk tuk driver each day is a real plus point. Whilst the building work was a little annoying when we had a pool day the pricing of our room reflected this (low season) and you treat it as background noise. I'd certainly visit again and cannot wait to see what their refreshed / new rooms look like or even if I can venture that far their Fijian resort.
