We stayed at Villa Romonea with friends in April 2013. They booked first and secured the "best rooms". Sure, they had a sea view etc, but our two rooms were very comfortable, clean and smart & half the price! The bathrooms were clean, tasteful & modern.
Breakfast was a real treat. Freshly cut fruit from the garden, and excellent bacon supplemented a great range of french pastries and breads. Lunch and dinner was available by ordering out, which staff managed for us, and then laid up the tables when food arrived. What a great service and meant everyone was happy with such a varied selection!
Facilities were good; the children loved the pool, the tennis court (when Cambodia's Davis Cup tennis player wasn't practising there!), and of course the TV room had it's uses. Shortly after we arrived a tropical storm hit, and all three families hung out playing games in the "heart" of the villa. That worked really well, and demonstrates the thoughtful design of the original architect.
The grounds are something not to be underestimated. They really are spacious. No building site next door, and even if there were at some stage in the future, the villa and pool are a good distance from the neighbouring properties - something unusual in Cambodia's crowded hotel sector.
This was a great place to stay, and we have no hesitation in saying "we'll be back".More
