I stayed 6 nights at this little gem of an hotel and was fortunate enough to be lodged in the Makadol Cottage, effectively the honeymoon suite! The cottage was spacious and kept adequately cool by the aircon when I needed it. The shower was perfectly hot when required and everything was kept spotlessly clean by the room attendants. The bed... More

Beautiful surroundings. Lovely beach. We had a nice family outing.The entire property is so large so I was able to do my jogging peacefully. The area is very quiet and safe. A good spread of the buffet was available when we visited the property. Could have been better if there were more prawn dishes. The Chef was the only person... More

Went on a holiday with three families. Bookings were done very much in advance almost a month before the visit. We arrived around 2.25 p.m. almost a half our after the official checkin in time.Checking in was very dissatisfying and clumsy. The lady receptionist gave a brusque "please be seated" even without asking for our reservation details. We sat thinking... More

Stayed a night in Ranweli. Rooms are good well kept. Beach is good , quite clean. Property is not maintained well. Hospitality mediocre. Dinning below average, closes at 9.30 pm for dinner in a resort. Very mediocre spread for dinner and lunch. Refilling very slow and quality of cooking just average. A great property maintained badly.

The hotel surrounding is wonderful and good for a relaxation surrounded by nature & beach from the other side. Rooms are also well maintained. The staff is friendly & there are couple of activities that can be done at the premises. However, in terms of the food the buffet is not much of a good standard as one would expect...especially...

The place and surrounding are admirable. However, we were really disappointed about the way we were treated by the Assistant front office manager. Basically i booked 3 Deluxe sea view bungalows via the head office. So upon arrival we were given the room keys and once we went to the rooms we realized that they are different to the description...

Stayed one night before a 9 night tour. The hotel is close to the airport and unusually located a short punt ride across the river. The food was similar to many of the buffets we encountered on tour though not as good as some with the desserts, whilst looking attractive, having no real flavours other than sweet. We did not...

Me and my Girlfriend, booked this last year and we were not disappointed, the grounds were lovely and well looked after. The staff were lovely and couldn't do enough for us, although one of the bell boys did a little too much and managed to break one of our suitcases! The food was lovely and had plenty of variety so...

My wife and i decided to have our wedding there which was attended by 30 Europeans and 30 Sri Lankan's. It was according to our knowledge the first ever wedding with a proper guest list and event plan they allowed in their hotel. We were happy. It was a symbolic location as that's where i proposed her to marry me.... More

Had an amazing time here 2 years ago so decided to return, Not a lot has changed since the first review except for maybe the food. It was really quite repetitive and we spent more time visiting anthoneys over the road. the quality was ok but it was the same fruit and sweets every night. The hotel was very quite... More
