We were a group of 9 and this was our 3rd hotel in Sri Lanka and stayed for 8 nights. We were celebrating our parents 50th Wedding Anniversary. Our stay was clouded by our experience on check in and the restaurant service on the 1st night. It took some serious words with the hotel manager and our rep to sort... More

This was the final stop of our honeymoon trip to Sri Lanka, before moving to the Maldives. And we could not have asked for a more perfect send off. The entrance is beautifully impressive and our room was luxurious (the standard we had come to expect in Sri Lanka!) with breath-taking views of the sea front. Little touches, such as... More

Good place to be. To be honest, we just went for a drink and an opportunity to experience the spaces and architecture. We were severely impressed and loved every single view point, detail and architectural and landscape proposition. Many excellent books have been written and photos published, however I feel that nothing comes close to the actual experience in person.... More

About 2k outside Galle. Comfy spacious room - nice touches like a cafetierre. Friendly staff ,interesting, architecture, beautiful grounds and swimming pools looking out onto the beach and waves. Food good - poolside snacks and the main dinning room were fine. Buffet or set meal. We were here for three nights and didn't try the fine dinning restaurant.

Wonderful hotel and location close to the ocean. Very helpful and friendly staff. Excellent amenities and recommend the hotel as a holiday location. Although the ocean is not appropriate to swim in, the large pools within the resort more than compensate.

I really enjoyed this opportunity to stay at Jetwing Lighthouse Hotel for two nights during my recent trip to Sri Lanka along with my wife and friends. The best thing about this hotel is that it very spacious, airy and right next to the beach. It is centrally located not too far from Galle International Cricket Stadium and the famous... More

The last part of our Sri-Lanka roundtour we spent in the Jetwing Lighthouse hotel and really it was the best you can get. The setting is wonderfull, right next to the beach so you can see the sea and and hear the waves all the time. Our room in the Spa Wing on the 2nd floor was very convenient and... More

The hotel was awesome. The rooms see the Indian ocean and the view is breathtaking. The service also was great. It is near the Galle town, the Fort, and Unawatuna beach. I will not forget my stay there, it was great.

The best times of the Galle Jetwing Lighthouse are gone, maybe it used to five star years ago. Renovation is necessary soon. The most disappointing thing was the restaurant, which reminded us of the cold atmosphere of a Yugoslavian restaurant in the seventies: a big hall that was very uncomfortable. The waiters did the rest. They seemed bored, passed twenty... More
