We were on our office trip on 20th June. Location was superb, facing the sea. Hotel buildings are very closer to the sea (25 meters). Rooms were average, bed was comfortable. Swimming pool is small. We were in a ground floor room (Room No : S616) which had direct access to the sea, swimming pool and it was the closest... More

We stayed here for a short night as final destination of our round trip before we left for Colombo and our flight home. Horrible hotel. Loud, crowded, bad food. Food is served in a buffet restaurant, unorganised, no plates available etc. Tourist trap. Don't go there.

I stayed for four nights with my husband at the beginning of a three week trip to Sri Lanka. We arrived late at night and were greeted warmly and taken to a second floor room overlooking the beach. The roaring sea was a lovely noise to fall asleep to and to wake up the next morning and see the view... More

Recently returned from a 4/5 night stay in this friendly but unpretentious hotel. Firstly I would like to say how friendly the staff are. We arrived late from our Male transfer and they had arranged for a Supper Box for us as the Restauant had already closed. A nice touch considering we were quite hungry having travelled most of her...

The only thing great about the hotel is its location and the beach. Koggala beach is one of the nicest beaches in Sri Lanka at present. The sea is very shallow and is safe for kids even though the sea was a bit rough during this season. The hotel, on the other hand, leaves much to be desired. It is... More

I do not usually write reviews but felt I had to 'join' and write a review for this wonderful, relatively small, hotel. Which has a great position on the beach. I cannot disagree more with the comment 'Golden Jail'. The entrance from the main road is high walled. However, you are certainly not 'jailed' in or stuck there. I went... More
