Stayed for 2 nights at Vendol Resort in Wadduwa. I must say its a beautiful place and the location is breathtaking if you are a beach lover. Best Fact - the beach is not crowded compared to most other beaches in Sri Lanka. Little things to improve such as room service. But overall I enjoyed my stay there. Wouldn't mind... More

The Haridra resort is now renamed to Vendol Resort with a new team. We stayed the night in a garden suite on the ground floor with direct access to the pool and beach.The suite is big with basic fittings, clean, with queen size bed. We love the terrace seats which accorded us nice sunset view on the ocean. There is... More

Well appointed, spacious and beautifully furnished rooms with great toilets. Nice view of the ocean from the room. The food was not impressive at all but the service at the restaurant was good.If the hotel can do something about the choice and quality of food it will be a great place to stay at. Treatments at the health center not... More

Perfect location but the Buffet was not to the standards I expected.. There were no good choices of food n worst desert.. And the restaurant staff was not good with the customers.. I would not request this place to any of my friends.

This hotel shows great promise but falls short in delivering. We happen to be there amidst a management change and a soft relaunch so it's definitely poised to improve. The room was amazing. We stayed in a sea view room and as you enter the room you have to climb stairs to get to the upper floor. The view from... More

This hotel has soo much potential but we were caught in the middle of change of ownership which was unfortunately very visible. The staff was great, but the property is really tired in dire need of refurbishment. Was upset me most is that we paid 5 star prices for a 2 star experience. Please invest, as this place could be...

Visited this property for one night with family. Hotel has a great entrance and well laid out. We were upgraded to a suite and offered a good discount as the hotel is about to relaunch. Hotel was 50% occupied I believe. The pool, gardens and beach was well maintained by the staff. Staff was very kind and friendly. The junior... More

visited this hotel in may, at first the rooms were quiet impressive and nicely done up. even had a private pool in the room, which was obviously nice. Only problem was we were the only guests in the whole hotel, which was kind of strange. The food was less than desirable...average at best. Tried the biryani they had, i can... More
