Myself and my fiancé have just returned from 8 nights at the Roman Beach Hotel. It's a wonderful place to stay. The hotel itself only has 6 rooms, all sea facing - the pool area is amazing and always quiet and chilled due to the low number of rooms and guests. The rooms are extremely clean, all with big balcony... More

This one is a extraordinary place to stay. The rooms are pretty new and very nice with lots of space. The view is great (every room has great view to the ocean). The room service is perfect. Clean and with a nice surprise every evening (will not tell here what it is ;-) ) The service is unbelievable - you... More

I booked this Hotel on line and I was so pleased that I did! It was a wonderful; slice of heaven from the moment we arrived until the moment we checked out. Nothing was too much for Chamara and his amazing team. We felt like we were the only guests and every need was catered for. The wonderful Kumar looks... More

This is a great place to chill out and wind down. It is an amazing location, the rooms are heavenly and well designed and well appointed. They are also scrupulously clean. I found the staff extremely helpful. What dissappointed me was that for the price I paid in the low season $180 USD nett my sheets were not changed for... More

We stayed for one night in the second week of July. The rooms were spacious and and had a very rustic feel to it. The room had a good view of the sea and the pool. However the quality of the food wasn't very good. Given that majority of our group was vegetarian, there wasn't much of choice. In the... More

This boutique hotel is fabulous. We stayed here for 3 nights at the beginning of July and were amazed by the helpful staff and wonderful surrounds. The beach, whilst rough, was lovely to watch and listen to, and the pool was a delight. The manager was kind enough to let our friends use the pool as well, as their hotel... More

We ended our two week tour of Sri-Lanka here and to be honest it was a bit of a let down. We were a larger group, occupying four of the six rooms. Check-in was a long process and no one seemed to want to tell us what was taking so long. Staff were very helpful in taking bags up to... More

We really enjoyed our stay there, almost everything was good to perfect. Its not the cheapest place around, ok. But you get wonderful rooms and a nice peaceful location. Friendly and helpful staff. The only thing we had to find out by ourselfes was to order the Sri Lankan Style breakfast the evening before. And the only drawback was the... More

I arrived at night time at the Roman Beach and chose it because I was tired of travelling that day. It looked calm ...I have to say that the rooms with spacious bathroom and balcony were really nice. One of the staff kept asking me about Englsih classes which was a little annoying ...The swimming pool was nice and everthing... More

We stayed for two nights in May 2014. We had two rooms to accommodate 3 adults and 2 children. The rooms were beautiful, clean and had fantastic views over the pool to the beach. We all enjoyed swimming in the pool before and after touring the surrounding area. The ocean was a bit rough due to the monsoon season but... More
