They did change it but we suspect it was just changed with another room. At least we had sheets. Other members of our group didn't,t have them. The patio door didn't,t shut properly... More

After a 12 day tour of Sri Lanka we arrived at the hotel on Monday 9 February late evening for a stay of 5 nights. On entering the room we found it to be very dark and dingy.

It has a beach that is less crowded. Food was good and probably the cheapest amongst all the hotels we stayed; also restaurant closed at 10:30 pm. At most places restaurants closed by 10pm. I did not like the layout of bathroom. The previous resident probably spilled coke on the wall and it was unnoticed by the cleaner. Overall, good... More
