We stayed three nights there on our way to Si Phan Don. The bungalows are great, quite sacious with all wooden furniture, looks like old time. From there you can see the wetlands, with elephants and buffaloes (especially at sunrise).
The restaurant and bar are fine, with some italian dishes, good location above a pond.
The hotel arranges trips (prefer the one day elephant safari through the jungle, and avoid the half day to the temple by the "elephant highway").
Downs : the price of the excursions, and the difference in bungalow locations (prefer 3 and avoid 4). Perhaps the attitude of the staff, less smiling than elsewhere (but maybe this is a quality).
Also beware of the massage : 40 minutes for 50 000 kip instead of the posted one hour for 35 000.
