We qualified for the repeaters programme, which gave us a free meal at the Waves restaurant, Mango Village, trip to Negombo, glass of wine with your meal at the Buffet every evening and a free massage. Checking in was very quick and... More

We stayed here for a week in April 2015. Everything about this hotel was great. The staff are incredibly friendly. The rooms are lovely and cleaned to a very high standard. The food was excellent. We would not hesitate in booking another holiday to this hotel. Hopefully very soon!

The Hotel served good food and the staff were friendly and were willing to help. The hotel showcased that, they follow local traditions too, by organising a Sinhala and Tamil New Year celebration events on 14th April 2015 with the participation of its General Manager, staff and all its guests.

After touring round Sri Lanka we stayed here for 10 days at the end of the holiday to chill out and it fitted the bill perfectly. Not much to fault with this hotel to be honest. My only issue here was the temperature in the restaurant which was quite uncomfortably hot at times. They had some ceiling fans but had... More
