Stayed only 1 night in a Hotel Dolphin. First impression was good. Nice clean rooms with fantastic view of the sea side. Opted for buffet at dinner. Vast selection of authentic srilankan food. Appams was brilliant and so as the dessert selection. Buffet price is steep, regardless good quality food.

We were at the hotel to spend the day at the pool and enjoy the classic international buffet. The food was so good; we have decided to spend a few days when we visit Sri Lanka next time. Great location, has a great pool to relax. Staff is courteous. A must visit !

They aren't a nuisance... More
