Although it has been a few months since I stayed at La Residence, the property has stuck with me as one of the best places I stayed in Southeast Asia. The room itself is luxurious. The pool has ample seating and is a nice escape from touristy Siem Reap. I loved the open bar on the second floor, where you could order drinks and food. La Residence assisted us with acquiring a guide for Angkor Wat and we felt the guide they suggested was top notch as well as reasonably priced. They even prepared to-go morning breakfast bags for us, since we wanted to watch the sunrise at Angkor wat and were leaving before breakfast was available. The managers went out of their way to learn our names and assist us with suggestions, reservations, etc throughout our time there. All of the staff was helpful and polite. Of special note, one of our waiters Van Vang, who not only remembered our coffee orders each morning, but went out of his way to greet us whenever we returned to the property.
Two small things to note: if you choose to use the spa, I'd say stick to the massages, etc. I got a pedicure and found it to be a little bit awkward- clearly not their speciality. Also, the way our room was set up, the shower did not have a screen/door/curtain, so although this may not be an issue for couples, it could lead to privacy issues if this is not the case.
