Angkor Village Resort and Spa – Siem Reap, Cambodia
When we got to the room (as it had literally just been cleaned) we were kind of surprised to see a spider web hanging from the fan and a couple spiders and other bugs on the walls and floors, a couple of them dead. To walk into a room that supposedly had just been cleaned seems like those should not have been there.
One other thing about the rooms that bothered me the most was no wifi signal. Nick and I like to stay connected while away, and I specifically pick hotels that have wifi and more often than not, free wifi. The hotel had advertised free wifi, but it’s only truly available in the lobby (the open air, no AC in 100 degree heat Cambodia lobby). This really made me mad that they would advertise something that isn’t true.
The room was very large though and had a nice sitting room as well as a large bed and lots of space for luggage.
Also, the hotel used to only have bath tubs that are more like a jacuzzi. Then they installed shower heads in the ceiling, problem is they didn’t bother to install shower curtains. So we had to stand in the bath, which was already like a foot off the ground, with water coming out of the ceiling but no shower curtain. It was just a really awkward experience.
We did eat at the free breakfast buffet each morning and while the hot food was great, I stayed away from the cold meats and fruits as it’s all outdoor and there were bugs constantly on all the cold items.
Overall Impressions – This hotel was fine but with all the random things, I left there just feeling really bothered. It’s also quite a ways from the temples and from the town of Siem Reap, which didn’t seem to be the case from what I read online. If I had to do over again, I’d stay in the town of Siem Reap at one of the nicer hotels in that area.
