Sri lank is a beautiful island, and from arrival to the end of our holiday, the staff at the hotel ensured that our stay was both enjoyable and with a comfort level that belies the cost for half board.The rooms were comfortable and well serviced. A friendly family run hotel, including personal organisation of trips, The location has a separate beach, with a lagoon that offer safe swimming, alongside an area that suits surfers. The sunbeds are available, and, gardener kindly put them along the beach for us every day. Snorkelling does offer some colourful fish, but, if you are serious, you need to go to other areas, which the hotel organises. There were only a couple of english folk, and, everyone was friendly, but, not intrusive. The food was excellent - the breakfast with fresh fruit/juice and english (inc bacon if desired), was high quality, and able to be enjoyed looking over the area where stick fisherman kept us entertained. We are two mature ladies, and we have travelled extensively, often in 5* hotels; in terms of value for money, this venue is a little gem. The only downside is the journey to and from the airport, which is very long and on busy, windy roads, but, if you can cope with that, it is well worth the trip. if you are looking for the most relaxing and idyllic location, this ticks all the boxes. You may want to visit the 'bongo bar' along the main beach area; they offer the most delicious fresh fruit coctails; one with a surprise! If you are prepared to organise your own holiday to Sri Lanka, the rewards are well worth it, and, money well spent.
