The pool was not ready until 8.30 in the morning. Poor service and quality offered by the staff where they use to whistle to call a visitor. For a triple room; they just provided a couch with a bed-sheet but not a 3rd bed. Our stay was 2nd to 3rd of may 2015. Plus there was a dodgy hole on... More

Great location and Good, friendly staff. The room initially given to us was not satisfactory due to a maintenance issue but was replaced with a good room asap. The food was great and a good variation. They even severed pork bacon for B.F and pork stew for lunch. Aurudu celebrations was great as well. Thanks !

A great place for a stop over especially if you are using the air taxi service from Columbo to Mawella Lagoon. It is set on the beach in the beautiful Dickwella bay, surrounded by palm trees. We stayed in a suite twice, once on our arrival in Sri Lanka for two nights and then again on our departure for one... More

When we arrived at the hotel we had a bit of an issue as the person who had accepted our booking hadn't entered the booking into the system, and one individual who was handling the reception at around 2 ish was rather rude and made us feel most unwelcome throughout...

What can I say...... To get there….. We got the train from Colombo to Matara which took about 3 hours and was very scenic, it only cost about 190 LKR, so very very cheap. We then took a private hire to the resort for 2000 LKR. The train passed lots of the areas of devastation from the 2004 Tsunami, and... More
