My husband and I stayed at the Camelot and just loved the service, cleanliness of the rooms, and the willingness of the staff to meet our every need. We were going to travel to other hotels but decided to spend a week at Camelot due to their terrific service. Also, there is a Health Center where you can get inexpensive... More

We also had a balcony with ocean view. The buffet was nice, lots of choice. Always friendly staff there. Especially the assistant F&B manager, Sunil... More

I booked this hotel as I was going with family and thought it would be a safe bet as its a large hotel on the beach. Apart from having a nice view the rooms were really basic, not very clean and everything (including the pool, bar area and buffet area) looked as through they were last updated in the 70's... More

I went for an early morning walk on the beach were I was confronted by a man who was exposing himself, he was using vulgar language and He followed me. I ran to the motel and advises... More

We stayed here for 2 nights at the start of hotel and found it excellent value for money. Perfect location, big clean rooms and the pool is just the perfect way to get over a long flight! The staff were attentive and service was great. Would absolutely recommend!

I will never recommend this hotel to any of my friends who will be visiting to Sri Lanka and traveling around the country. They were very irresponsible about their services and PR . It was really embarrassing for us that who ever the so called manager didn't allow our ladies to use the swimming pool without bikinis, even though they... More

Dear Sir, Firstly let me apologise for the miscommunication in our policies. It is not, that we do not allow Muslim ladies to enter the pool unless they are wearing bikinis, it is that we do not allow anyone to enter unless they are wearing proper swim attire. Secondly, let me apologise for my staff’s unawareness of the attire that... More
