Clean rooms, bathroom & garden. Rooms were nicely done and we loved the outdoor bathroom. Very closer to the beach & restaurants. A big thanks to the two ladies who were in charge of cleaning & who arranged our sun beds. What We Didn't Like We contacted the property manager (Amila) even before we made the booking on Booking.com in order to confirm our early check in as we were planning to leave our residence late night on the previous day. When we contacted him on 09th Sunday (before making the booking )he said an early Check In can be provided and he asked us not to mention that on Booking.com(Don't know why). But we mentioned our request to Check In at 3.00am & it was confirmed by the property. We clearly informed him we are ready to pay the early check in charge so that he can confirm the early Check In for us. But he insisted us we don't need to pay & confirmed that he will arrange the room for us at 3.00am. On 16th Sunday around 8.00pm( Our Check In date was 17th Monday) he called us and said that he cannot provide early Check In at 3.00am due to some unavoidable reason. We were disappointed as we did not have another option and were about to leave home. When we reminded him about his promise , he said that the standard Check In time in a hotel is 2.00pm ( which we already knew & that's why we were even ready to pay for it)& the maximum time he can arrange the room is by 9.30am . It was so disappointing & we were in no mood to stay at the hotel. We asked him whether we can get even a partial refund so that we can cancel the booking. But he refused. Knowing that he can no longer assist us ,after calling several other places at night finally we had to book another place only for 5 hours & pay the one night charge as we didn't have any other place to stay till morning. On the next day as he promised to give us the room at least by 9.30am & arranged our breakfast , we had no intention of complaining as the faults like that can happen & 9.30 in the morning was "something better than nothing" for us. We arrived to the hotel around 9.00am & there were two gentlemen who seemed to be the managers. One of them came and asked us to come to his office. We were wondering what type of a manager he is as we were guests to his property & there was no Greeting or at least a smile.(May be because we were locals) As he didn't introduce himself & we had to ask whether he is the one we had been coordinating with. Then he said yes. After facing a very disappointing incident on the previous day with the property & him being aware of that , he didn't had the courtesy to say a simple " Sorry " to us which could have changed our impression. But NO. He was not that much down to earth. He was in a hurry to take our full payment upon arrival (maybe he was afraid that we might not pay). After taking the payment he just told a lady who was there to take our bags to our room. Our first impression & the mood to stay in that property was ruined in that way. Breakfast on both days was not up to the standard ( Some stale bread,fried egg, half cooked sausages, bacon & a juice made of flavored drink powder & a fruit platter was all we had) staff never asked whether we need anything else & at least our egg preference. And the only dish we ordered apart from that was a portion of french fries & it was too salty. Water in the pool was completely green when we arrived & it was not clean at all. On 17th evening a guy came & threw a bucket of Chlorine into the pool & next day the water was super blue. Nobody was there to clean the pool on both days & we skipped using the pool. We will not recommend this place.

We stayed for four nights including New Year’s Eve. We loved our room with its mosquito net over a comfy bed. The fridge was useful to keep our drinks nice and cool.The outside bathroom was great too. The grounds were kept tidy by the staff. The pool was cleaned when we were there and probably needed to be done more frequently. The restaurant area was pleasant and served adequate food. The cocktails were good especially the Margaritas.We had a buffet breakfast sadly there were a few flies around so we chose covered food only. On New Years Eve we had a great buffet and disco seeing the New Year and dancing in the sand. Fire works too. The beach is wonderful to walk along. Yes fishermen’s huts and tackle around but take a walk along this amazing wild and wonderful beach. We loved it. The sea was also easy to get in and out of. We took a tuk tuk tour of the local are organised by the hotel and enjoyed exploring the old for ( take your passport) and the kite surfing lagoon. We really enjoyed our time in this quiet and beautiful area of Sri Lanka. Would recommend this hotel.

A great little place with good bungalows, neatly located on the beach. The pool was great for family swimming with kids. Friendly, helpful staff and good local food (but does take a really long time to serve, so be patient). If you are a kiter, it was ok to launch from the resort beach (some fishing boats), and just a few minutes from the (crowded) kite lagoon. Also close to diving and dolphin tours. All in all a really nice, well tended place. No internet though. Like. Not possible (they claimed this was only for Apple devices 😜). We could not check anything online the week we spent here. Beyond that, great place!

I visited Horizon With my family, wife and three kids, 2,4 &7. Its a wonderful, playful experience for the kids. Beautiful pool and the enormous sandy garden gave kids a really happy and busy time. They had enough space to run around and play the ball and the sand. Beach right next to the hotel was clean and safe. Clean sandy beach with beautiful view gave us a romantic evening. Dolphin watching trip was spendid . Thousands of dolphins all around us just a few miles away from the shore. Boat ride was adventurous, yet kids and adults enjoyed it to the fullest. Dont forget to bring your Camera...!!! (Sad we missed whales) Room is clean and neat. Ideal for a couple to have a romantic hideout . Beautiful open concept bathroom was fantastis. Wish if there were a tub too. Meals were superb. Menu was limited yet the chef didnt disappoint us. Staff was so friendly and helpful. And flexible too, which gave us an easy time with kids. Special remark about the manager;he personally attended to every guest and gave us a warm welcome.

The resort is very relaxing and has a nice pool. The bathrooms are are very private and outside the room. I loved it. The two managers were unfortunately arrogant and moody as soon as the owner went away. That made us feel very uncomfortable. We didn’t eat at the resort but at the great little local restaurant next door. The Eagle restaurant. The way down to the beach was very dirty and not inviting.
