Seclusion, close to the beach and friendly animals...if this is what you are after then Frangipani villas is a must stay. What they forget to mention is that you'll be ripped off, there is nothing to do unless you fancy paying overrated prices for one of their 'Ayurvedic' massages which leaves you feeling traumatized, oh and by the way is carried out in the corridor. Friendly animals? Yes bed bugs...and for that matter the worst bed bugs I've yet to discover on any of my travels. Bed bugs so friendly that resulted in a visit to a hospital! Staff were overly helpful once they realised they were royally ripping us off. On asking for a nights refund due to the over friendly bed bugs occupying our room we were presented with 200 rupees barely enough to cover any hospital costs or medication. A slap in the face!
A stay at Frangipani villas hotel of horrors isn't quite complete without an order of their menu. Bland, meagre in portions and totally lacking in the taste sensations of the rest of Sri Lanka. All in all...if you fancy a different Sri Lanka experience stay here. Bored of the clothes in your backpack then also stay here as you'll need to throw out the majority of your infested clothes and purchase a whole new wardrobe!
