We had the newer rooms that looked out on to a gravel car park. not the best room view but the rooms were spacious, clean with good AC, huge beds and up to date clean bathrooms. Pool was nice with infinity edge to the sea beyond. The restaurant was pretty good but being open on all sides and in between... More

We had reservations for five nights. When we arrived we asked if we could see the rooms. The rooms were not nice and had a strong smell. We decieded to change hotel. The staff were not friendly or helpful and didnot understand why we wanted to change.

Stayed at Whitepearl for the NY period and was disappointed. The shower was up there with the worst I have ever head, like a trickle of water running down the side of a wall almost. The room was extremely dated and dark, there was no blanket on the bed only a single sheet. The drinks were always warm. Another gripe... More

We stayed here from NYE til 2 Jan and hadn't realised there was a NYE party on which turned out to end as we were going to bed so that wasn't such a bother But when we showed up and wanted to check in several staff members just kept walking past us ignoring us which was annoying, when we finally...

Unfortunately we booked to stay at whitepearl during our honeymoon. I just feel that it is a place more suited for those that would like to party and crash in their rooms than for those that are looking for a romantic getaway. We booked for 3 nights but only stayed for one as they partied till the early morning and... More

We had a great stay at white pearl. They were really friendly and service oriented. The manager helped me a lot with my missing luggage. The food was okay, but is perfectly satisfying. This becuase the over all impression is really nice. Great beach and clean rooms. They have both air condition and a fan.

an authentic Srilankan Rice and Curry! The Guesthous with a fantastic, direct sea-view is on a fine sandy dream-beach. Food and service are impeccable, all in all a worthy trip, we didn't overnight, only spend the day at the Beach and Restaurant!

We had lunch at the White Pearl Beach. The fried prawns were way too salty, but the barracuda was OK, be it slightly overcooked. The salad was nice and fresh and the french fries were excellent. What was also good was the Mango Lassie (spelt 'Lazzy' in the menu) and the black tea. We ordered espresso after the meal, but... More
