We've just returned from holidaying in Sri Lanka and stayed here for 10 days after having been moved from the Vivanta (due to its refurbishment).
The Avani was very quiet - but it is a smart hotel with fabulous bedrooms, newly refurbished. As it was quiet, some days we havd one of the pools completely to ourselves. Good position directly on the beach whilst still walkable into Bentota and Aluthgama for restaurants and shops.
Frangipani the a la carte was good - and worth trying for dinner. The dinner buffet was fairly average and would have got boring if we'd had to eat there all the time.Stay in the Avani but try eating out in the local restaurants. Avani staff were good - particular mention is due to all the bar team who were friendly and made excellent cocktails (and pretty cheap too!!!)
The only negative I can think of was the performance of attempting to secure a 2nd cup of tea at breakfast!!!!
Despite it being the supposed off season hence the quiet - it was a great time to visit. June is one of the hottest months, and yes, the sea was rougher than usual - but overall, lovely sunny warm weather.
To be highly recommended!!!!
