The room was clean, the setting really nice on the beach. Did not use the pool as do not see... More

We had stayed one night in a hotel in Nilaveli, and were planning to move to Uppuveli as the experience was not that great. However, on the day we were supposed to be leaving we went and checked out Hotel Coral Bay and met the staff there. As they were all very friendly and welcoming, we decided to book in... More

The hotel is situated on the beach with swimming pool and beachside restaurant. Food is good and the rooms are clean. Strong Wifi connection. We stayed a couple of nights. Staff were very helpful and spoke good English

This beachfront hotel has recently changed hands and when we arrived, there was extensive repair work going on from painting the rooms to electricians and carpentry work. The rooms were very clean and tea/coffee making facilities introduced while we were there, great for an early morning cuppa without having to go to the beachside restaurant although there is room service...

We have not stayed in this hotel itself but were eating in it once. Awful expirience. Tables are old and extremely dirty, half of the menu is not available, food is below average but prices are way above average. Sea food cocktail in this "sea food restaurant" was not fresh at all and smelly - but with lots of sauce... More

Overpriced rooms at US$65 equivalent for a double. Stayed 3 nights and the rooms weren't attended to once, which is not great on a beachfront property where the floors get sandy quickly. Pool and beachfront location is unbeatable. We waited 3 hours for an unremarkable dinner so ate elsewhere after that. Staff friendly enough but not at all service minded.... More

This hotel will cost you 8500 rps at least for one night (breakfast NOT included). When you come in the pool at the beach looks great and you think it will be worth your money, but you're mistaking! When you look at the water in the pool it is very dirty. The rooms are old and dirty. Everything is just... More
