“bad driver accomodation”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2014

The guest accommodation is satisfactory not luxurious. However the facilities for drivers is bad,
and unacceptable for a hotel of this type.
the food is reasonable quality with a good choice.
the swimming pools are nice but could be developed.

Lot of Mosquitos in the room. Got a triple room but it had 2 of each only. That is only 2 glasses, 2 mugs, 2 towels etc. Complimentary water bottles were also not kept in the room. Bathroom smelt of urine and was not clean at all so we called house keeping and got it cleaned. Restaurant didn't have cutlery laid out on the tables properly. We had to keep asking for missing stuff. Food was very average and not much of a variety. Some of what we got for lunch was also served for dinner. Bit unfortunate that probably they were under staffed and the hotel was fully booked at this time. However won't be going to this hotel again.

There is a beautiful big garden with a swimming pool and also another infinity pool facing the beach. Beach has lovely red sand but the area is not safe for sea bathing. Food is average. All in all an average place

Climate is around 34c. Room & facilities are fine. Mosquitos are a big problem even inside rooms. Meals are average. Beautiful big garden with shady big trees add a good look & feel. Swimming pool is also fine. Sea bath is not advised. See view from the bar area is too calm n attractive. Almost all facilities are available in the hotel. Rates are somewhat high.

Room Tip: Higher room surrounding might have less mosquitoes.

This is the worse experience I've ever had. When I reach there nobody in the front desk. I've wait for 15min to appear someone. No one there to unload our baggage and park the vehicle. I had to do it my self. Surprise was, in there car park there is a notice saying 'park at your own risk', within there hotel premisses. I've never seen such a notice in any other hotel. Outside view of rooms also not good.

I arrived at peacock beach with mixed emotions due to seeing adverse comments made about the hotel more than the few good ones in the past...
Main reason to travel as I wanted to have an experience in Hambantota side...

The staff was very cheerful & service oriented starting from the luggage boy to the hotel Manager..
While having a rest in the evening, met FMCG Manager - Ranga who inquired about how I feel about the place and was a very pleasant person who was helpful to us always thoughout our stay..
reached us at dinner and breakfast to check and see whether we have any issues and I believe in overall made a good effort make our stay amazing and with no regrets..

All staff was really nice, groomed well and always spot on to service at any point...
The food was very god and there were many varieties to select and with the beautiful lounge music, it was a memorable environment...

The rooms are pretty big and has an amazing sea view...the furniture and facilities were really good..
The design in the room was very innovative with creative furniture and bedroom setup

I would recommend the infinity pool next to the sea if you intend to take a swim as its breathtaking...
the view and the experience at night in the pool was amazing...

If you are interested in cycling, this area is awesome for it

Overall its an amazing experience and I feel it was a job well done by the hotel staff mainly and it does worth traveling to peacock beach for a relaxing gate-away.

Special thanks to Ranga who was helpful to us always...and not forgetting front staff Dinith
Service is core and you are doing a great job..

Room Tip: Choose 3rd floor rooms for a breathtaking sea view and comfort

Our room was spacious and with good views although appeared cheaply furnished and lacked a hairdryer. However the food was terrible. The choice was limited and much was unpalatable. On both nights we were there the burners under the food containers were not alight and the food was cold
