This is the second time that I have stayed at this location. I had a great experience the first time 4 years ago, and when my friends wanted to visit Cambodia with me, I knew right away that I would stay here again.
The property gained a new manager/owner since the last time I visited, and wow what a difference. Lisa was incredibly helpful and worked with us to schedule the best possible tours at the best times. Honestly, just listen to her advice- she was correct on tour rimes and what to do every time. She truly cares about her guest's experience and goes the extra mile every day to make sure that everyone is happy. I thought I "knew it all" from my last visit, but Lisa was excellent at helping me re-work my times and added activities that I had not considered, but found to be highlights of my experience there this time.
Tours we took/places we went: The mini-tour, (have Lisa pack you a lunch and make sure to have your driver take you to the hidden/secret garden temple- it is beautiful and there's no crowds there), Beng Melea + Tonle Sap Floating Village (an absolute must in my book- love this temple out in the jungle, and our experience in the village was wonderful with our guide - plus lunch with his family), The Angkor National Museum was a great way to learn more about the history we were seeing, Phare (Cambodian Circus) is a must (get your tickets early), and we also very much enjoyed our cooking class at Beyond (I went there last time and came back from more this time- it was very personalized and fun- and the food you make is delicious).
Traveler Tip: I highly recommend that you get the three day Angkor pass and see 2-3 temples a day (no more than 4). Honestly, you get burnt out with the heat, crowds, and walking, pretty early- so if you can space out your visits a bit (and take an afternoon dip in the pool instead) you will definitely enjoy your stay more than trying to see 5-6 temples in one day.
As far as the rooms, they are spacious and have all that you need for a comfortable stay. This is not a hotel or luxury property, but the rooms and amenities were great for me- and well above the usual dorm/hostel experience. I traveled here solo the first time and found the pool area and common room below great for meeting fellow travelers.
