Having completed a tour of some of the World Heritage sites in Sri Lanka, we arrived for our six night half board stay at The Palms, Beruwala on the southwest coastline. A comfortable typical beach resort hotel with a modern twist on traditional design for the public areas. The staff were friendly (perhaps sometimes the room boys, pool boys and bar staff were a little too cheeky with jokes and comments). The reception staff were very good and helped us when we had a family emergency at home and thought we may have to cut our visit short. The room (307) was comfortable with a nice modern bathroom. Renovations and repainting were taking place in some parts of the hotel during our stay but didnt affect our enjoyment. Many Russian tourists and few British, perhaps some preferential treatment of one large Russian group. We were half board and breakfast and dinner were the usual buffet style. Limited choice if you dont eat meat and a shame that the option that was cooked in front of you, had a sperate pan for cooking without meat to allow vegetarians to have pasta or stir fry that isnt cross contaminated with cooked meat. Very noisy bass disco one night until 12.30 am with no prior warning! location by beach good but some distance from town and many persistent hawkers. Spa looked a little tired and uninviting.
