We stayed here for six nights in January and cannot find fault with our stay. The hotel was spotless, comfortable room and very friendly staff. Breakfast buffet had a wide choice on offer and the chef even put together evening meals to order that were not on the menu......... Will be going back again for sure!

The location is amazing, the hotel is right at the ocean beach, only 20 meters from it. This is a huge feature, not common. We had a room with a balcony on the 1st floor. The room was nice, but the bathroom had a vent window to the corridor, which you couldn't close, couldn't shut the noise out, and from... More

Thanks a lot for your recommendation of the location as well as the rooms. We agree there is a non openable vent in the bathroom but the light comes in through the frosted glass and the vent provides for letting out the odour. The vent has a louvre type of timber panel so when you stand by that from inside... More

Thank you very much for recommending the location. We are not very sure what your disappointment with the room was, as if you look at the comment received 1 days before (29th January) and the one received one day after (31st January) both are highly recommending the rooms as well as the service. This is rather disappointing feedback we do... More

Stayed at this good hotel in Ahangama. The room was very cozy and perfect for a couple. Ample lighting, good bathroom, cozy bed and good food...what more could one ask for for a leisure vacation.

Sandwiched between the beach and a busy and noisy main road. Small pool and a few loungers but not enough imho. Cricket strip if you fancy a game is a bit weird. No tv in room is a bit of a negative when your travelling alone and WiFi is only in lobby and bar area. My hot water was only... More

Hello Mr/Mrs Kuepper It appears to be that the product Insight Resort is not to your expectation. Regret Sir/Madam, the product we offer is a 3*.

I stayed here for 3 nights one week and 1 night the following week. The location by the beach is beautiful. The rooms were basic and adequate, with no TVs, but as there is no lift so traipsing up to the third floor would not suit less able guests. The food was ok the first week, but appalling for our...

Further, the entire hotel is going to be differently able friendly with the completion of the new development. Regret to note about the appalling breakfast on the last day. We shall... More

A small but very friendly hotel which is very easily accessible form Galle by local bus. It isn't 4* luxury but you're not paying 4* prices. Bedrooms clean with good air conditioning.

Biryani was very ordinary. The chicken was revolting and not fit for a dog. We sent it back and never got a replacement or an apology. The rooms were clean albeit basic. They are misleading on their website about food and need to address inadequacies in this area.
