I stayed at Villa Siem Reap because I had read about it in Lonely Planet and they organised tours. Seeing this was my first overseas trip on my own (have travelled a bit with friends before but never by myself), I thought a place that organised tours would be good.
I could not have expected what I got from Villa Siem Reap, they were excellent.
The room was clean, spacious for the money I was spending and had everything I needed. The free wifi came in handy to keep in contact with friends back home. The food at the Villa was beautiful (try the Tom Yum soup!!!) and the staff were quite frankly simply beautiful. They greet you with a smile constantly, talk with you and are very helpful.
The tours I organised through the Villa were exceptional. I ended up doing four day tours - stilted village tour, Angkor discovery, Outlying adventure tour and finished with Beng Melea tour. All of them were brilliant and I've walked away with so many wonderful memories and much more knowledge about the Khmer people and the area. Beng Melea was my favourite tour, the ruins of this temple are amazing and as it's a fair distance from Siem Reap it's a lot less busy than Angkor Wat and Angkor Thom.
Thank-you Villa Siem Reap for making the start of my Cambodian adventure so wonderful.More
