We spent three wonderful days at La Residence d'Angkor in mid April. The service we received was impecable...not only did the staff go above and beyond, they all knew our names based on sight, knew our itinerary and we full of very helpful information. The airport pickup was prompt, with cold towels and water waiting for us in the car. The front desk was able to make suggestions, help arrange reservations and transportation to some delicious, authentic Cambodian restaurants. They also were very accommodating with our request for a late checkout, as our flight didn't depart Siem Reap until 7:30, they allowed us to checkout at 5:00 pm. The tour we booked through the hotel was also nice, albeit rather pricy. We decided to only do one day of guided tours and then hired a tuk-tuk for the other two days. The pool was beautiful and refreshing, and the grounds overall were stunning. Food: we enjoyed the breakfast, the baked goods were particularly tasty, although I personally didn't realize there was hot food available outside until the last day. We also enjoyed happy hour at the upstairs bar (2-for-1) but we did not usually have dinner at the hotel, preferring instead to find more local spots. Overall a truly lovely experience.
The room was clean and beautiful, the bed was quite comfortable, and I looked forward to the turndown service every night with a delicious treat left for us each night (tiramisu, macaroons, green tea donughts..all delicious!)
