My friend, Amanda Lenk, has just made a long, accurate and fair review so I will not retell the whole experience. However I do feel the need to express personally my frustration and disappointment during my stay in this beautiful place, which could have easily become a regular spot for week-ends away at the beach, since I am a local....

For several years now my family and I have loved staying in Jetwing hotels. So it was easy to feel excited about our stay at Jetwing Era Beach. Upon arrival we were so pleased; the hotel is gorgeous- small enough to feel intimate, large enough to feel like you have space to relax and enjoy. The welcome was warm, and... More

Arrived at this hotel and despite having received a confirmation and also a reply to a request, We were told that they were full and moved to another hotel which wasn't what we wanted at all. Reading below it seems that overbooking is not unusual at this property. Please be warned book at your own risk because even if you... More

We stayed here for six nights and this was a lovely relaxing hotel.We stayed in a sea view room which was big,had a big bed with an ample bathroom. The staff were brilliant and at one stage we were the only ones in the hotel. We were half board and the food was very good. I had noticed that a... More

Staying at this small hotel was one of the highlights of my trip to Sri Lanka. To start with the staff was really amazing. They were very helpful and friendly in a genuine and not too over the top way. When my luggage was lost, I would be asked, did you get your luggage yet? and when I got it... More

My wife and I booked this hotel with high hopes - wanting the most lovely five star luxury hotel experience on a well-earned break away from our children. We booked two weeks ago - and with everything confirmed, travelled over 24 hours from Africa only to arrive with no one to help us in and no one on hand to... More

We were uncertain about this hotel when we arrived as we were booked into a lobby room, which, although vast with large wet-room felt somewhat like a dungeon due to the dark stone tiled walls and lack of windows and mirrors in particular. When we asked if we could have a better room, it turned out that we had the... More

This is a lovely hotel if you want good service, great food and an interesting building with rooms and bathrooms that are definitely a bit different (in a good way!) We stayed here for 2 nights at the end of a touring holiday, having asked for a 'beach hotel'. While close to the beach, but you can't swim in the... More

Stayed in garden suite for 2 nights in February. Bathroom size of a London flat! Super food and attentive and ever smiling staff. Book a table the night before overlooking the sea and enjoy a romantic candlelit meal with the sound of the ocean. Chef is excellent and has worked at some of the top hotels in Dubai. Ask him...

We did not stay in the hotel, but visited for dinner. Great food at a very nice restaurant. We had lunch the next day and had the option to use their pool facilities. Unfortunately you cannot swim in the sea in front of the hotel.
