The room with a sea view was comfortable. We enjoyed the swimming pool area. The staff was very nice and helpful, they helped us when I needed to see a doctor. They really took care of us. The breakfast was delicious, we enjoyed it every morning. If you are lucky you can meet turtles at the beach at night. If... More

The hotel is beautifully located on the beach and the beach gives a real excellent view of the sea. The rooms are sea facing and the hospitality is good. The dining area oversees the swimming pool and then the beach starts.... very beautiful

We only stopped 1 night but the one thing that struck us was that all the staff were very friendly and helpful. The food was very good too and the chef took a real interest in making sure we were totally satisfied. The hotel arranged a taxi for us to Mirissa with one of their staff driving us. Cost was...

Value for money. Picked on this small hotel on HB as we had a tight schedule itinerary with not much time to spend in the hotel. No bellboys or concierge service, we carried our stuff to the rooms. No lift, had a lot to climb. One room was on the top floor and had to climb an extra set of... More

This is a nice little hotel, right on the beach. The rooms we had were very clean and looked newly painted and decorated. The room has A/C and fan, free wi-fi, and a tv with local channels and supposedly cable channels (though we couldn't get any to work well). There is also a small refrigerator if you need it. They...

This hotel was the most expensive one we stayed in, in Sri Lanka, and at the same time the "worst". The rooms really can use some renewing: bathroom, airco, windows, curtains. I think the biggest problem is the fact the manager was never there. The staff is trying to do their best but doesn't speak English and does not know... More

Located in tsunami-struck Kosgoda, this gem was rebuilt in 2005 and is located in a quiet area just behind a temple. Attractive with hanging plants on the outside, there is a large reception area and airy terrace restaurant overlooking the lush garden with small pool, palm trees and and plenty of sun loungers. The hotel has a wonderfully peaceful feel,... More
