This hotel is very much the jungle in a resort format. It is very interesting to stay here. The pool is fab, there's great offers with drinks to chill out after a long day. I didn't like the breakfast but I think there was more on offer that I didn't know about. It would be good if there was a...

We stayed here for 3 nights while exploring the Angkor Wat temples. We stayed in the private bungalow on the top floor. Had a private deck out the front where you can enjoy a few beers after a long day. The pool is amazing. Very deep and great for a cool down. The girls that run the bar are lovely...

First I must complement the fantastic staff who helped make our stay wonderful, we both loved the setting, the pool and our room was perfect. The hotel is a bit out the main town but this let's you see a part of siem reap that isn't taken over by tourist traps, if you are lucky enough to stay here we...

We didn't actually stay at the hotel as we had booked our accommodation before arriving but we do recommend the area. We ate at the restaurant here a few times and the service and food was wonderful. There is a nice pool with a waterfall just past it and we met one of the friendly resident dogs. We also rented...

How wonderful it was to return to The River Garden each evening after our daily adventures. A friend and I were volunteer teacher in an NGO school. We'd be tired, hot, and dusty each evening, So it was a welcome treat to have our tuk tuk driver deliver us to The River Garden where we could clean up, have a...

We had originally planned to stay 3 nights but after the first night we decided to extend our trip by 1 more day. The staff were fabulous, attentive and very polite. It was nice to chat to them and find out about their lives in Cambodia. Breakfast was fine, eggs and homemade bread with fruit for both of us but...

4.5 for the River Garden. Stayed for 5 days in the Khmer Cottage Bungalow, which is a small bedroom on the ground floor. Next time I'd try the upper floor - you could hear everything from the upstairs room. The staff for the most part is lovely and kind - we miss Soonha already! The food at the restaurant is...

Thanks for the nice review and constructive advice. Our bungalow room is the cheapest room on the property and your thoughts of paying a little extra and staying in one of our lovely upstairs deluxe room would be perfect. ..............lots of air, sunshine, trees and a huge balcony. We hope you'll visit us again soon

Although staying here only one night, this was a lovely place. It was a perfect distance to all the great activities in Siem Reap! We loved it. I also picked up the best Angkor Wat guidebook that I saw during our week long stay from this fancy, cute, awesome hotel. Cambodian people are so nice.

This is one of the most attractive hotels we have stayed in in the Far East. The separate houses are spread around a beautiful tropical garden and swimming pool. The bed was comfortable and the vital air conditioning worked well. We didn’t get bitten by mosquitoes inside the room (we sprayed the room as suggested), but we did get bitten...
