I booked a superior deluxe room which was spacious, well appointed, nicely decorated, modern and had 2 large balconies. The bathroom was also huge. Very clean, lots of wardrobe space, room safe and tea and coffee. Room had ceiling fan and air conditioning and was well lit. The bed was king size and very comfortable. The room was in a new wing which is still being finished.
The Big Crocodile Beach Restaurant served very good food at a very good price. Service was also good, if I'm being picky I'd prefer the music to be turned off in the evening as it became a bit loud with diners competing to be heard over the music. There are a handful of tables on the sand if you want to get further away from the speakers.
The beach restaurant wasn't as good. I had 1 disappointing evening meal there. Very small portions. Breakfast was served here which was a shame as I'd prefer a sea view. Breakfast was buffet style and cold as there was no heat under the food containers. You need to specify if you don't want alot of salt in the omelette. The Sri Lanka coffee at breakfast was very nice though.
The swimming pool had the hint of a scum line around it so I wasn't convinced of the cleanliness. The few sunbeds there were had dirty covers. A sign states there is a charge to hire a pool towel yet there was no-one around to get a towel from.
Lastly do not use the hotel laundry. I had to hand mine in at reception (a hut in the car park). It took 48 hours to get it back after chasing several times. There was a tie missing from my linen trousers so they would no longer fasten and a button missing from another pair of trousers. A day later the missing items had still not been found. On closer inspection the clothes were still dirty. They had been ironed but I'm not convinced they'd been washed.
