We, (three families) booked 3 double rooms. It was hard enough to find the place as there is another sea view hotel which is of better quality. Reaching that hotel in a van is a hard task. The small lane which takes to the hotel is so bad that we felt like we are going on a bull cart on a very rough road. it's not a tar road a gravel road with holes all along. on this small lane, there is fish smell all along. my kids kept their nose closed.
Finally we reached the hotel, the staff didn't help us unload the luggage from the van.
We went and had a look at the rooms, at the first look my kids said they don't want to stay there. But because we paid the total amount we ended up staying there for one (which we planned to stay in Trincomalee). We couldn't sleep in the hotel that night as there was some door banging the whole night. also the rooms are not noise proof, very noisy. We were waiting for the sunrise so that we can leave the hotel asap. We were suppose to have breakfast there, but we (adults) only had coffee there.
When we were walking inside the hotel i saw a crab crawling inside the varanda.
All in all the hotel is out dated, the pictures on the web is not the same as you see inside.
Please stay away from this hotel. staff not professional. We did not have a single meal in the hotel as felt it's not clean. insects every where. Luckily we had insect repellent.
Totally a rip off. expensive, but very poor quality.
This was the worst hotel that we stayed. We could have got better hotels for the price we paid for this one.
