Food were remarkable and enjoyed the beach, sun set and the creamy waves of Indian ocean. Recommend for B'Day parties, Evening actins etc etc. Willing to visit again... More

We had to call the emergency Kuoni number from our UK mobiles then spend an... More

For the price paid this was good value. Room was well equipped & cleaned every day. Good selection at breakfast. Nice pool & as the hotel was quiet there were plenty of sun beds. Hotel is located a few minutes walk from shops & restaurants.

We had two nights here; the first hotel we stayed at in Sri Lanka. Good location as there are a few restaurants in walking distance. Right next to the beach, however the beach wasn't the best. For swimming, just use the pool which is a good size. Good selection at breakfast. The rooms were OK; soft mattress though and there... More

This was my first experience of hotel accommodation on arriving to do a tour of Sri Lanka. On arriving at the hotel, I was impressed by the open plan reception and the welcome from the staff. As I was not planning a beach holiday and it was just an over night stay, I cannot comment on the leisure facilities. However,... More

Place was amazing, hotel suite better than any other we saw before (on 2 floors), clean beach, good and helpful staff, nice pool, food ok, wifi good only outdoors, billiard table in the bar. But the management is idiotic: when i ordered coffee next to the pool, the guy brought hot water with a nescafe sachet. I asked do they... More

We wish to make our comment on this incident. The guest stayed for 2 nights through web booking and the guests are from Croatia and we feel we made the mistake of not requesting the guest’s to pay in advance or on arrival. May be that’s the only mistake that we have done. The guest’s came to the reception at... More
