"I stayed at the Sofitel Angkor Phokeethra Golf and Spa Resort last week . From the moment I went into the reception I was greeted by warm and friendly staff who could not do enough for me. The reception area smelt wonderful this was the first thing I noticed. This hotel is fantastic and one of the nicest I have ever stayed in. It has charm and beauty and the grounds are simply breath taking. I will stay here again without a shadow of a doubt from start to finish I enjoyed every minute of my stay."
