We call to the hotel once we arrive to Trincomalee. They arrange a sea view room quickly. We booked half board Basis. We had a nice Sri Lankan rice and curry with chicken soup. Not a big wow but not bad. We enjoyed a lot in ourselves coz place is very quiet.

The customer service at this hotel is worst at best. During a lunch order, we requested a food to be warmed up since they served cold soup and curry. The restaurant manger indicted that they cannot accomodate and if we did not like the food here, they should go some other place.

Came here last minute and the manager was very welcoming. We arrived with 15 people and everyone was happy with their rooms. The manager was very helpful and the bar on the beach is excellent! It was a simple hotel but with everything needed.

Resort is beautiful and the Nilaveli beach is just infront of the resort. Their breakfast is also very good and staff is very helpful. Rooms are clean and well arranged. You can just walk to the beach anytime and is just 10ft. Pigeon island starting point is just 10mins walk
