Arrived there without having booked, owner / manager charged everyone differently (we were charged three times as much as the people in the room next to us. Also, Swimmingpool is damaged for which reason a guest were taken to the hospital. No running tap water for two hours and no working wi-fi. Room was mostly clean but basic furniture. Food... More

Found this hotel through a travel guide, We booked a room one month in advance. The assigned room was not good as the toilet had mold in the walls and smelling bad. The other room was just acceptable, not what we were expecting for. I believe that all accommodations need proper refurbishment. The location is great, just in front of... More

Location: Bit remote if you want options but perfect if you want to just chill and not be bothered by anyone. 600R tuk tuk to Trinco Setting: idyllic, white beaches, blue calm seas. Cows on the beach. Everything a beach break in SL should be. Staff: Nice but really didn’t go out of their way to make you believe they... More

Realy nice place, rooms are maybe not very luxury but enough for me. Air condition is working and thats the most important. Restaurant has delicious food, but we have to wait for sandwich almost hour ! So order your meal when you are not very hungry. Swimming pool ale clean every day. Thank you for a great tome

The place was recommended to us by a Sri Lankan friend. The location is fantastic. It is in a secluded area overlooking the Indian Ocean and only about a five minute boat ride away from Pigeon Island. The beach is of picture post card quality during May to September. The water is crystal clear and is a haven for snorkelers... More

Such a beautiful place. Nice swimmingpool with an amazing view to the beach. Great beach, friendly staff. Good value for money. Good food - be patient when you order though. From this place you can go to Pigeon Island to do some good snorkeling.

The location of this property is absolutely perfect. They have a huge clean swimming pool which is right on the beach. Perfect for lounging around all day with the added bonus of the well priced restaurant which is also beach side. The main downside is the actual room - sheets have old stains and the rooms need a revamp. Our... More

The location is stunning, on the beach with beautiful ocean views. The pool is fantastic, and there are plenty of loungers to enjoy the sun. The rooms are another matter. Very basic, with average bathrooms. No TVs. Air con and fans are present though. The restaurant is nice and reasonably priced, which is just as well, as there's not a... More

Very average 10 roomed property with basic rooms and below average bathrooms. Poorly maintained. There were no staff in sight even to get the room swept it was more like they rent you the room and that is it. The A/C in our room did not work but nothing was done about it despite having brought it to their notice.... More

The location is excellent. The place is poorly maintained. Staff isn't very obliging and the service is poor. The atmosphere however, is very relaxing. I would hesitate to recommend this place to a traveller.
