Stayed for 3 nights in Feb 2012.
Airport-hotel transfer is ready for us at the arrival hall, no frets no hassle. good transport vehicle, got us to the hotel within 10 min, and a very warm welcome greeted us.
We were checked in at 9am in the morning! no delays, transaction went smoothly, and the room is large, clean and tidy, nice view of the pool area and the stage (nightly apsari dance performances during dinner buffets). Bathroom is large, has a large bath and a large shower (shower head has good water pressure!). Comes with a mini bar, a safe, and flat screen TV with cable tv.
tuktuks are readily available within the hotel compound, ask the lobby staff for assistance. sunrise trip is about usd 9 (sets of at 5am, back by 8am). sunrise plus short circuit trip is usd20 (sets of at 5am, back after noon). grand circuit trip is usd15 (whole day).
pass for the park is usd40 per person. photos are taken at the ticket counter, no longer need to bring passport photos. tuktuks wil wait for you wherever you go.
the hotel is within 5 min walk of the town, from pub street, night markets. hotel is within 2 min walk from KFC. has many grocery stores nearby. very convenient in view that most of the large tour groups stay at hotels along the road towards the airport, quite a distance from town. this hotel is relatively smaller, more intimate, for smaller groups of travellers.
breakfast buffet has a wide range of options. standard american breakfast, with eggs done at order, cambodian breakfast of fried rice/soup noodles/porridge. Tasty!
The pool is heavenly after a days trip of sight seeing. By the end of the day you will be very sweaty and dusty from the tuktuk travels, and the pool is a great way to cool down with a pool bar readily available with smoothies.
Basically an excellent hotel. stayed at the superior room for 3 nights for usd200.
