Good beachside position, friendly staff but just too much of a Butlins feel for our personal taste. Good sized and comfortable room. We had a superior sea view room. Public areas are clean and comfortable and the staff very friendly. Just not our type of hotel.

We stayed in a double room overlooking the amphitheatre on a 2 week all inclusive holiday in January 2015. The room was spacious with a large and comfortable bed. The rooms look like they have had a refurb in the last year or so, with stylish furniture and beautiful bathroom. The food is plentiful and tasty with a wide variety... More

300 guests travelled from UK to Sri Lanka for my daughters wedding at this hotel. The hotel location is superb on the beach and 35 mins away from the airport. The staff were extremely friendly. Everyday dining in the evening was outdoors where the quality and quantity of food was above all our expectations. The hotel has two pools one... More

We were a family group of 13 so quite a challenge finding hotel and CHD was a great find. As a resort hotel there was loads to do (although they could promote the variety of activities better). We stayed over the Christmas period and the way they celebrated Christmas was amazing. HD Zoyza is an incredible chef as the food... More
