The tents at 4 Rivers are absolutely top class - beautifully decorated with spacious bathrooms and private deck. We also enjoyed our excursions (if they were a bit pricey) to the Tatai waterfalls and the jungle trek/kayak. Our guide Channy was super friendly and knowledgable.
Our main qualm was with the food, which was the worst we had in all Cambodia. Despite being an Eco-lodge, they insist on highly formal service with set course menus and disappointingly, a nearly entirely western menu. We found the service here largely sucked of warmth which was not the fault of the staff but I believe of the management who trained the employees to act as though they were serving high tea. The food was also very expensive ($19 at dinner, $5-9 for snacks) and due to the remoteness, there are no other options. We were disappointed to be eating cream of mushroom soup rather than say, fish amok with fresh fish from the river! Each dinner had one "Khmer-style" meal, but even these were pretty weak compared with even the $1 road side lunch we had on the way there.
We took the private taxi they arranged from Phnom Penh for $80 on the way there and the $7 bus to Sihanoukville after. The taxi was on time and fine but especially for the way out, I would recommend the bus which was cheap and very comfortable. The staff at 4 Rivers kindly arranged it for us.
Overall, a beautiful property and fascinating location, which with fresh Cambodian food, could have been excellent.
