Overall the hotel is just about adequate, but with rooms at over $200/night for a hotel that would not even qualify for three stars, the room prices are really not reasonable. Nilaveli Beach Hotel about 500m away is slightly cheaper despite being a much better holiday hotel overall (Nilaveli has large well kept gardens, beachfront restaurant, etc)
When we were there we tried to use the spa facilities of Pigeon Island Beach Resort but the guy was not there at all and so no massages were possible during our stay. On one occasion there were not enough guests in the hotel and the management cancelled the buffet breakfast without notice.
It's the same beach all the way along the coast, so does not make any difference what hotel you stay in.
The property has no real facilities to offer as it is on a very narrow strip of land leading down to the beach. If they pricing it a bit more reasonably it would work much better and avoid disappointment.
