We have recently returned to the UK after 14 nights at this hotel and our review mainly reflects on the Travel Agent that we booked this hotel through "Away Holidays" - Very misleading with their information - We would not recommend them to anybody and will DEFINITELY NOT book through them again. The staff at the hotel are so lovely... More

We a family of 5 stayed at this hotel for 16 days in July. Upon arrival the hotel is lovely and clean. We booked 2 rooms and had specifically noted to the hotel that we were traveling with our daughter who was using crutches. We asked for rooms close to the main building and for a wheelchair to be available... More

Outstanding food throughout our two week stay, the most relaxing holiday ever and the loveliest hotel staff you are ever likely to meet. Perhaps the location is a little isolated, however the walk to the nearest village is well worth doing and a good way to meet the locals. Plenty of trips and tours can be booked from the local...

During our one week tour through Sri Lanka, we stayed at much better hotels: better meals, much more friendly staff, better rooms with larger balconies. Pool area was okay. Pool is large. Animation was nothing special.

First, it is a good hotel with large pools, clean rooms and good restaurant. Second, I didn't appreciate the area where the hotel was situated, too isolate, in a jungle, with an acces road too small, with many dangerous things, for instance, snakes or iguana. I didn't appreciate the birds from pools. Many crows came there and had bath in... More

Had a good time. I must agree with one of the recent reviews that the only thing that could have been better is the towel service. I found the tour guides running around the area to be a bit of an annoyance. Sometimes it felt like i can't sit outside without some random person offering me a tuk-tuk tour every... More

We had a very very good holiday. All things are very good. Only the towelservice for the swimmingpool was not good. The animationteam was okay but could make more poeple doing the activities. Most of the poeple are very nice!
