We recently spent 5 nights here family of 4 in two rooms, our children in an Aqua room & my wife & I in Zen room. We have to agree with several recent reviewers in that the hotel is in an awesome location beach front ocean views but the hotel is now in a run down condition. We had several... More

Stayed at this Ocean front hotel for two weeks! And although we had issues with the standard of the actual " building" we still had a lovely time! The staff here are so friendly and always greet you with a smile! The food was wonderful and we also enjoyed several first class cocktails. Our special thanks go to Sandun, Eranda... More

Spent Valentines weekend here and we had a lovely time. Stayed in the Aqua Chic room which had a Jacuzzi and a lovely balcony overlooking the ocean. Rooms service was quick and tasty, and the breakfast was nice as they offered something different to the usual continental option. Only reason I did not rate it 5 starts is that the... More

Booked a room for 2 nights here to celebrate my boyfriend's birthday and was very disappointed. The Aqua Aqua room cost $150AUD per night and had one tiny window looking out onto the road and carpark and there was a strange crackling/buzzing sound. We were expecting something so much better for the money we had paid and when we told... More

We spent four nights here after traveling around in Sri Lanka. We liked the restaurant and the friendly service especially from Sandun and Jayashanti. Always helpful and smiling. The restaurant has great variety to choose from and served really good food. Breakfast is served by order. As for the room, we stayed at Aqua Ocean Play 1. The room and... More

First let me say that I spent 3 nights here and thoroughly enjoyed myself with my friends. The views are superb. The pool is small but lovely for a dip with a great view out to see or along the beach. Im sure when this place opened (4 years ago I believe) it was close to perfect. But it now... More

First of all it's worth to mention that it's hotel rather for fun and party lovers around their 30's. We had a wonderful stay with our almost 2yo daughter but we felt like something is missing for her. Stuff is extremely nice and helpful. Always smiling with "yes we can" attitude. Food in the restaurant is delicious, great variety, kids... More

Nice place, food was good and reasonably priced as were the drinks. Beds are comfy. It's about a 20-25 min journey by Tuc-Tuc to Galle, you pay 800-1000 in local to get to Galle in a Tuc-Tuc. It's right on the main road but we did not find the rooms noisy. The Ocean Play rooms look out on to the... More

We stayed here for 3 nights for the start of our trip to Sri Lanka in Nov last year. We arrived after getting the train down from Colombo, hot and jet lagged, and were greeted with smiles and a lovely view from the hotel and room. The food at the hotel was very high quality, we had dinner here twice... More
