The Areca is absolutely wonderful. We chanced upon it, and were thrilled daily to have found such a gem. The rooms are stylish and comfortable, the food in the small restaurant divine, breakfasts a delightful freshly made choice , welcome after all those sad buffets often offered. The fresh crunchy wraps were my delicious favourite pool snack, and they fix a great frozen margarita.
From the wonderful welcome, with fresh fruit, refreshing drink, and cooling towel, to the daily advice and help, to the restaurant waiters and chefs, the staff excelled... Always smiling, informative, keen to help, and with a wonderful witty and warm manner. They really went that extra way to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable, and with so many extras included - airport pickup, tuck tuck into town daily, breakfast , massage. Terrific value. We loved that it's a 5 min ride to town, means you are away from the noisy main drag, and also that you get to see a bit more of the real Siem Reap. And a readily available tuk tuk back is only 2 dollars. If younarevdoing the customary 5am temple trip- a great idea to avoid the heat, they will make you a breakfast box including ,delicious banana pancakes.
It is also encouraging to stay at a small locally run independent hotel, such a relief to the big faceless foreign- owned chains. At the Areca, you can be sure of personal, individual attention, and that your expenditure is going back into the local community.
I recommend the Areca unreservedly.and send my warm thanks to all the staff there, I only wished we had had more time.
