We had a most enjoyable stay at Mandala Rosen. Rooms were large, beautifully appointed and clean. Beds were very comfortable. We opted for half-board because we only needed an overnight stay and had the most delicious dinner and breakfast buffets. Too many dishes to remember but everything I ate tasted so good. Staff were very efficient and helpful. So glad... More

We normally visit Kataragama every year. But this time it was after about 2 years. Every time for the last so many years we always stayed at the Rosen. Without any doubt it's the best hotel in Kataragama. The staff know how to treat people, majority comes to attend to the poojas at the dewala. They advise regarding times and... More

Of the limited number of good hotels in Kataragama this is certainly one of them. Easy to find and in Tissa makes it a good stop when you're off to visit Kataragama. Rooms are spacious. Not the best equipped. Staff is ok but certainly could do better. Understaffed as I saw it. Food is safe and nothing bursting with flavour... More

The location of this hotel is very good, but it lets its self down with poor maintenance of the site . The poolside area had uneven and broken tiles and was a trip waiting to happen. The spa staff were excellent - make sure you book in - it was the best massage I have had in a long time.... More

When we arrived at the hotel, we were really tired due to the travelling. We received a welcome drink in the smallest glass with only the drink being half of the quantity .. This wasn't enough to refresh ourselves. Also, the restaurant staff was so rude and the restaurant service is very poor. The food was based on a set... More

Interesting room shape but very functional and clean with a beautiful pool although lacking views. Good Sri Lankan breakfast with Western options. Friendly service and very efficient. A peaceful hotel in which to relax

Mandara Rosen in Kataragama is a good hotel for an overnight stay while you are on a trip to Bundala, Yala or Kataragama temple. The reception is quite warm and friendly. The rooms are spacious with large bath rooms but the cleanliness needs more attention especially in the bathroom. The service is excellent and the food is quite good. Worth... More

We were quite hesitant when going to this hotel after reading many negative reviews on tripadvisor, but I gotta say that we were pleasantly surprised. From the time we went in to the hotel the staff were courteous and very helpful. The girl at the reception was very prim and proper and helpful. One of the rooms we got had... More

I don't know what I was expecting but it wasn't this. An oasis of luxury in what is quite a small place. We came to see leopards at Yala and were surprised at the luxury we found in Mandara Rosen. It was the best hotel on our trip, clean and comfortable with a great pool and lovely staff and great... More
