3 nights with my wife at end May 2014. This is low-ish season, and it's hot (35-37 degrees), so having a tranquil bolt hole is vital..! Shinta Mani is made of two bits (Club and Resort) and we stayed in the smarter Club. Rooms are delightful, large and well appointed with some rustic/boutique flavour. The staff are friendly and helpful, and always cheerful. It's super quiet, 3 mins from the main streets, but not on the main tourist hotel drag. Two pools, but the 'club' pool is a long slim plunge type. Restaurant is nice and charming. 3 mins tuktuk to the centre, 5-10 minutes from anywhere in Siem Reap, and 10-20 minutes car ride to most temples. Stay, use the Club section. Best temples also are Ta Phrom, Bayon, Banteay Kdei, Banteay Srey as they are charming, atmospheric and move you. Note, not Angkor Wat... But strong advice also is to get a guide. Makes a huge difference as they know when to go to avoid crowds.
