Lovely Stay

I went for 2 nights. Had a lovely time. The beach was dirty after the violent storm 2 nights back. But the hotel staff was cleaning it. We spend the mornings on the beach and the evenings on the pool. At night there was songs played and some of the guest started dancing. The restaurant staff need to be more attentive and pay more attention to guests.Love their pork curry.

A few days of lazing after a safari tour of Sri Lanka

This hotel was very well equipped and a good place to relax. The pool was excellent and the food at the buffet was of good quality. There was direct beach access and a lifeguard looking over both beach and pool areas. Mixed entertainment in the evenings - some average but the snake charmer was excellent.

Good Holiday

Stayed here for 1 night. All rooms are sea view and old decor with modern amenities. There is no special reception or lobby. This is a good experience for me. Room service is fast and all the staff are very humble. Breakfast is very good. The beach is very clean and enjoyable. Overall good memories.

The perfect getaway!

This is 3.5 star hotel with beautifully laid gardens and buildings with scenic pathways. The ponds and canals filled with colorful fish lining the walkways, adds to the serene atmosphere. Checkin was very smooth. It was a nice gesture of them to provide a wheelchair at the reception for my wife since she had walking difficulty. My advance request for a room closer to the main restaurant, lobby, elevator etc. was provisioned efficiently. We got 201/203 very close to the elevator on the south wing on the first floor. Note that the elevator is on the south wing if you don't like stairs. It was nice to find out that restaurant/beach were quite close that even my wife was able to walk on her own to these areas. Rooms/washrooms were quite clean and had a full set of bathroom amenities including toothbrush, shaving kit etc. Some of these amenity items we don't see even in 5plus star hotels in the Western Hemisphere. You can see the surf from the room balcony but the horizon is covered by the tree tops. Checked the view on the 2nd floor from the elevator, sadly both the surf and horizon is covered by the tree tops. I booked half board which included breakfast. Lunch/dinner is around Rs.2500. I'm a foodie who likes quality over quantity. Breakfast had a great choice. You will not find any spicy/salty food like some locals prefer. You can skip lunch or dinner by ordering room service which has a decent menu or walk to the nearby beachside restaurants to try some local cuisine. The service here is very commendable with humble and friendly staff. Make sure you treat them well. The beach by the hotel is the best as moving further south along the beach is a delta where the river brings dirty water into the sea. Check google maps to get a lay of the land. The waves are moderate around here for a safe dip.

Amazing property with not so amazing rooms

A huge resort. The bye lane where the hotel is situated is very narrow for a coach to enter and may make you really nervous about what is there at the end of the road. But the resort will really surprise you as soon as you reach there. The lobby, the restaurants, the bar, the seating areas are really good. But the same thing can not be said about the rooms, Though rooms are of good sizes, look dated and need renovation. Especially the ground floor rooms are a bit damp. The hotel is right on the beach. Sea food bar cum restaurant beside the swimming pool serves delicious food with amazing sea view.

very good end of our holiday

We spent 5 days here as the end of our Sri Lanka tour, and found it relaxing and enjoyable. Lovely pool, direct access onto the beach (Mind the beach sellers, very persistant), lovely food, everywhere is clean and tidy, room AC works well, slightly tired shower room in room 226, lovely staff, stunning grounds constantly being attended too, local spirits are average to be honest. Recommend the local dishes rather than "european" alternatives.
