Nice pot of brewed leaf tea, and nice fresh bread with breakfast. Bad- the toilet and room smelled bad for 1 of the 3 days we were there. The... More

Spent four nights at Appolo and I'll start with the good parts. Location is very good, central and on the beachside of the road. Nevertheless the beach in front of the Hotell is not very nice, and there are other stretches that are much better. The rooms are clean and upon request we could borrow an extra set of towels...

Apollo was our third stay during our 2nd Lanka holiday. We got there after the high season so we got a good rate for a big room on the 3rd floor. It looked like 2 bedroom apartment. We got the Master bedroom and a French couple checked into the second bedroom the same evening. We spend many hours sitting at... More

Very adequate basic hotel. Good aircon, fan and fridge . Lighting in room could be better but at the price it was excellent. Breakfast very limited but very near alternatives. Turtles visited more than once. Would use again as a budget choice.
