The saltwater pool is the perfect temperature, set in lovely gardens, and there is even some shade in the late afternoon (perfect for the fair-skinned who have been out in the sun at the temples all morning). The hotel is worth staying at just for the pool and clean rooms!
The housekeeping staff deserve special mention, the rooms are serviced twice a day and are spotlessly clean. The drainage can sometimes smell a little, but minor.
The downside is that you can hear guests in other rooms scraping wooden chairs/tables/suitcases across the wooden floors at all hours of the day and night. There are late flights to Siam Reap so people were coming and going at 1am, plus people getting up at 4.30am to see sunrise at Angkor Wat. Pack earplugs if you are a light sleeper.
Breakfast can be very crowded at peak tour group times but the local fruit is delicious and they can make you an espresso so you don't have to drink filter muck!
Two hotel tuk-tuk divers are lovely and deserve special mention, book Mr Kear or Mr Sal to take you around, they speak enough English to make things easy, charge fair prices and are lovely blokes.
