My husband and I had the pleasure of staying three nights with La Residence Angkor. The property is beautiful, clean and comfortable, the staff attentive and very caring, restaurants offer good food. As we were in the process of checking in we were greeted by the Hotel General Manager, Carla; a couple of days later we had the opportunity to chat with Jacques, who is the Manager in Residence. Both conversations were friendly and both offered insights into Siem Reap that were very interesting to us.
Prior to our arrival, we reserved a two day tour of Angkor Wat. We had the GOOD FORTUNE to be assigned Mr. Sor Polin. Polin was very knowledgeable, polite, understanding of western culture (us) and engaging. He was also very patient and caring. The greatest advantage was Polin's knowledge of each temples' busy time, most of the time we were leaving a temple site; just as the big tour buses were arriving! He knew the appropriate time of day to visit for the best photos at each site. Thank you POLIN!!
All in all, the hotel, the hotel's staff, restaurants on property, the cultural dancing show and our guided tours far exceeded our expectations prior to our arrival.
