Like other reviews, I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the Golden Banana. I won't repeat what others have already said so well about the great location, rooms, amenities and food.
What I took home from my stay the most was the incredible staff at this place. They were the happiest, helpful and most friendly staff I've ever experienced at a hotel. No request was too small and they truly cared about every guest. I felt quite sad saying goodbye to these lovely Cambodian people.
All the rooms of the hotel tend to wrap around the pool. As a small point of annoyance, we had one of the rooms closest to the pool and the first day we were there some very drunk and noisy guests were shouting much of the afternoon so any chance of an afternoon siesta was out of the question. Perhaps the management could keep an eye on such behaviour in future with consideration to how close the rooms are to the pool. However this was a blip on the radar of a great stay.
Well done to Tommy and the great team at GB. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it as an oasis from the heat and dust of Siem Reap.
