My girlfriend and I stayed her for 5 days after reviewing hotels / guesthouse's on TA and we were so glad that we stayed here.
Firstly there is an issue with the name - aqua boutique / samolina guesthouse (?) when you search for it on the net, but don't let that put you off. I emailed to confirm out booking 3 weeks before our trip and aqua boutique confirmed everything was correct, paid for and in order.
If your driver knows where he's going then its an easy hotel to find (obviously!), howerer in one tuk tuk ride from the river back to AB we ended up directing our driver as he didn't have a clue - certainly not the hotels fault, but its wise to keep the address in kamer on you to stop instances like this happening.
The room was fantastic, very big for what we paid, lovely big double bed, very nice furniture, free WiFi for a couple of hours per day (per person). There's also a pc you can use for free.
The staff cooked arguably the best breakfast we had in Cambodia / Thailand to order every day.
We pretty much ended up with our own personal driver for the 5 days that we were there as the tuk tuk driver works with the hotel and was more than happy to take us places, wait for us there, then take us onwards to our next destination. He was great too, very, very nice, we'd agree a price at the end of the days travel and he would always ask us how much we wanted to pay!
All of the staff are courteous and polite - they always stood up to greet us when we walked in the hotel, they knew the local area, where to go to eat, drink, places to see etc...
All in all it was a great hotel / guesthouse, the breakfasts were really good, the staff brilliant and for the price I don't think that you'll find better. I'd recommend it to anyone!
