The rooms were comfortable and spacious. However the food was extremely poor specially considering the high rate charged. Very poor quality. Absolutely no choice for a vegetarian. Very disappointing in a sacred city where there may be many vegetarian guests considering many guests go veg when they come for religious reasons. Public areas are not air conditioned. All in all...

Good hotel with clean spacious rooms and bathrooms. Lighting within the hotel and rooms was a little dim. Nice pool area. Hotel is in a convenient location for Yalla National Park. Meals were buffet style with a reasonable selection of both local and continental dishes. Nice bar area upstairs with a selection of cocktails and a pool table.

We stayed at the Rosen because of a good deal we got of a credit card. The rooms were good, spacious and had Air conditioning. The bathrooms were big but smelled bad, in one of the rooms the bathroom shower water did not drain out. The living spaces were confusing. It seemed like you had to walk through a maze... More

I can agree with the reviewer who said this place was designed by someone with megalomaniac tendencies. My room in the villa building at the far end of the hotel was enormous but in all the wrong ways. There is a separate sitting area with small windows that overlook a fountain, armoire and bench for your suitcase in the entryway... More

Nice hotels with spacious, clean and very comfortable rooms. We did not expect as much, it was very good. Pool is great as well as you can also enjoy the sub marin music that is very nice and fun. Concerning food, this was more mitigated as it is a big hotel for a lot of tourists so the restaurant is... More

We were pre-warned by our tour agent not to expect to much from certain hotels in Sri Lanka particularly those in more remote areas and this definitely made it easier for us to accept the shortcomings of this hotel. The rooms are too large which makes it a tough job for the worn-out air conditioner. Poor lighting throughout the hotel... More

The hotel was in a convenient location and easily accessible to the Yalla National Park. The rooms set up and structure was good, rooms were spacious and clean, well maintained. Basic amenities were taken care of. Buffet had a good variety with a combination of local and continental spices. Overall a very good experience. Counter staff was friendly and welcoming.
