Third time here and it just keeps getting better.......
I almost don't want to say too much as it is such a great hotel, in the most amazing country, that if too many of you hear about it we may find it hard to book again next year!
We took our 20 year old son this time and he loved it. He didn't mind that it is quiet because the sheer luxury, superb service, great food and beautiful rooms more than compensated. He normally avoids massages but booked numerous treatments at the spa, a big compliment to them, and he loved visiting the well equipped gym everyday.
Well done The Fortress, excellent holiday yet again...... we will be back!
One important point. You will find that getting hold of a reliable tuctuc driver is not always easy so we would certainly recommend local tuctuc driver, Chamara, we have used him over the last few years and originally met on the beach. He is excellent, trustworthy, a good driver, always finding us great bargains and very reasonably priced. We went on a number of tours with him, that included whale watching, turtle hatchery, tea plantation, diving, shopping and numerous dinner trips. Please contact me directly if you would like me to send his contact details.
