Having spent 5 weeks travelling around Sri Lanka staying in guest houses we finished our trip with a lash out staying here for 4 nights. The swimming pool area is lovely and relaxing through the day (when not visiting Colombo city) and for the afternoon the beach area just across the railway lines made for a pleasant walk and people...

We stayed for a day in Nov 2013. Property is bit old and need renovation. There are no rooms which overlooks sea. Staffs were friendly. We have to cross the railway track to reach the beach. The pool is almost on the entrance. AC was not working and water leakage from it, they corrected after complaining. Overall VFM for the... More

This was the last stop of our Sri Lankan honeymoon. Our room overlooked the beach, and the resort has a part of the beach as a private area for its guests. The staff were helpful, however the room service was a bit expensive. The rooms also overlook a swimming pool which is a good place to hang out in the... More

We where were were satisfied with our stay and would like to come back. Great pool area, both for us and our kids, aged 9 and 11. Super frendly staff. We did not mind the trains. It was just not that many and fun to look at when they drove by.

I stayed at this hotel April/May 2012 for 10 days with my teenage daughter. We were walking distance to a three story Odel store, two grocery stores, and had beach access. At first I was worried that we would be too far from the shopping areas (House of Fashions, the main Odel, Majestic City) but everything was just a short... More

We can't say enough good things about this hotel. We have stayed in many lovely hotels, including budget hotels in many countries,and this rates among the best value for the money. Lovely clean pool, beautiful long sandy beach, clean rooms, helpful friendly staff and free Wi-Fi. Only downside, train passes between hotel and beach. However, all beach resorts in this... More

Xmas/new year 2013/14. staff very friendly and helpful. A/C rooms by pool are good. Clean and comfortable. Insist on fixed price when booking and pay in USA dollars. Remember to add on at least 20% to any bill at the hotel or when eating out. Very close to the railway is an understatement. At 5.25 am you are awake as... More
