The room, grounds, and pool were beautiful. Perfect for relaxing if you want a nice hotel stay. The location was far from the town center requiring transport everywhere, the breakfast had many options such as noodles but not many western choices, and the restaurant was ok but pricy.
I enjoyed the relative affordability of the hotel and the seclusion from the busy No. 6 road. The area is generally quiet. The staff was friendly as well, and the spa was enjoyable. The included breakfast was great, and the restaurant for dinner is pretty good. The bathrooms were great and modern, and the TV and channels options were great as well. The English skills of the staff were a bit lacking, which often left some requests confused. They couldn't get the credit card machine working either, so I had to withdraw cash to settle my billing.
Rooms were spacious. Room had a strange smell like bug spray. Lots of chickens next door so there were occasional awful smells at the hotel.
Phenomenal service, very nice but didn't have the feel of a corporate "5-star" chain hotel. Excellent location within Siem Reap. Looked at various other hotels while there and thought Shinta Mani resort was the best overall value.
The positive: Quiet, comfortable resort with fantastic staff. The setting just feels calm and peaceful. The small details are where the resort is lacking. The food at the restaurant is entirely unimpressive, with a very limited variety and only decent quality. It is nearly impossible to get a good temperature set in the showers (at least in the two rooms we occupied). The little things that mean so much are simply lacking, with the price being very high for the area.
Really love the garden, the decor is also very nice and totally set the difference from the boring modern luxurious chain hotel rooms. Only complaint if I must have some: the lobby area (for the wifi. averagely each guest would spend one descent half hour there per day) is totally a mosquito feeding ground!
