We stayed here for three nights and it was the best part of our amazing trip to Sri Lanka. Upon driving into the hotel we saw peacocks, bee eaters and 3 crocodiles, one going in for the kill on a baby wild boar (didn't catch it!). We had a beach chalet and walked to the beach each day. It was abandoned as the sea was very rough but we could see the footprints of an elephant amongst others. The observation deck is great for watching the sunset. We were able to observe a herd of wild buffalo and then eagles, storks etc flying around and finally the views of the stars is fairly unspoilt. The food was the usual cinnamon standard. There are muffins and coffee available for before the morning safari but they serve breakfast until quite late so we had it when returned at 10.
