With 100's of hotels in Sri Lanka, please dont ever consider this place. Feb 2015, I was here, bathrooms were dirty Worn out towels Furniture was dusty This hotel is basically MAINLY used for Transit stay by Sri Lankan Airlines.. So they get a dirt cheap deal and no wonder they are not doing anything about it. Plus the misused... More

Its a lovely hotel located closer distance to the Bandaranayake Airport. Lovely rooms with good view. Food was ok, the staff was good. But the rooms can be improved. It is a good place if your planning a budget trip. Surrounding town is very small and you can go and have your breakfast and lunch in local restaurants. They are... More

We only had 1 full night but booked Sunset Beach for 2 nights (as we had a late night flight) and paid £95 The reception looks welcoming and the reception staff are well presented,professional and friendly. We were shown... More

We stayed here for 3 nights. The lobby was nice and clean and employees friendly. Our room was more than we expected, based on the reviews here. Though they should take a second look at the bathroom, which was a bit dirty. Swimming pool got cleaned up every morning and so very clean, yet no one used it. Breakfast was... More

We booked this hotel because we wanted something more luxury (ie. swimming pool) than our average stay after three weeks in Sri Lanka. In the end, this hotel was the most expensive, but the least satisfying of our stay. The hotel is shabby; it seems a long gone glory. It has no charm at all. Prices are way too high.... More

Stayed here for one night on my birthday. The restaurant is great and has a beautiful view. We enjoyed the pool and had long walks on the beach. The price we paid was high but other than that we had a relaxing time in this beautiful place.

I visited in September/October 2012. The 5 of us could all sleep in one family room and had air conditioning. We had a god experience and made use of the pool. We were close to the airport, as we were flying out the next day.
