I've stayed here 3 times now, so it's probably time I put in a good word.
This is a little oasis - my girlfriend and I love the place. Cambodia is a wonderful place, we've spent time in both Phnom Penh and Siem Reap.
My big reasons for coming back:
1. The pool is great - saltwater - so great for my contacts (i wear glasses)
2. The food is really good. Breakfast in your room is the way to go, Set dinner is spot on.
3. The upstairs bar is just a great place to read a book under a fan and drink cocktails.
4. The massive marble bath is amazing - i want my house to be like the hotel rooms.
5. Free WiFi Internet allows you to use laptops or newer iphones and blackberries.
6. The maids / turndown service are very good, they even put in a little candle at night so you dont stumble on the way to the bathroom.
That's all. Its just a great place to spend a week.
