Stayed one night in this Hotel with my adult daughter. It was an emergency stop over after arriving late from London. We were given a very large comfortable room with a large bathroom. The shower was huge. Didn't really see much of the Hotel's facilities but there was a large swimming pool and it was by the beach. The breakfast... More

I have a similar view to many others who used this place to recover from a long haul flight before continuing their tour of Sri Lanka. We stayed for one night on our arrival and found the hotel to be OK for a short stop; I'm not sure I would want to spend an extended period although we met some... More

We only stayed one night as we wanted somewhere with a beach close to the airport before starting a more extensive tour of the island. Facilities were pretty basic, with few frills, but there was a nice, small pool. The small bar area, seemed to be frequented by All-Inclusive types determined to get value for their money! Service was a... More

Good food, good ambiance, good rooms (especially if you get the ones with the balcony), very clean and awesome food :D you can walk right up to the beach but since the beaches are said to be too rough, its not so advisable to go there.

This hotel was our original choice and about two week before we were due to arrive our travel operator said hotel over booked and they were moving us. However we were not happy with our alternative so we insisted that we stayed in our original choice as it was a group booking of twelve. I am so glad we stayed... More

All the staff were very welcoming, polite and helpful. THE ROOM - very basic and tired, old furniture that... More

First impressions are good a with a modern looking lobby, but the room didn't live up to expectations. There was nothing 'wrong' with the room, but it was all just a bit tired - the bed was unsupportive, the bedding was worn as were the towels, the room decor was tired - paint chipped, floor scuffed, corners of furniture damaged,...
