Although pool looks great and view is lovely the rooms are filthy. Dirty towels. Dirty sheets. Filthy floors. Bathrooms horrible. Would not recommend. Try scout out something else as your value for money here is zero.

2 families booked into 3 rooms. They were not ready when we arrived. It was in total darkness and the manager only fixed the light globe when we got there. We could see them carrying portable here and there to fix our rooms. The rooms were below average and there were worms in the sink. No tv as promised and... More

Pros - manager was friendly, nice beach outside the hotel, swimming pool. Cons - some of the food was fine but some inedible, wifi wasn't working, didn't serve any drinks outside of meal times, some staff didn't seem to care. Overall I probably wouldn't recommend this place.

We stayed two nights. Our A/C was having problems so it kept switching off and on all night long (waking me up every time). Quite poor breakfast with too many flies around. The pool was very nice though.

Also, Swimmingpool is damaged for which reason a guest were taken to the hospital. No running tap water for two hours and no working wi-fi. Room was mostly clean but basic furniture. Food... More

Found this hotel through a travel guide, We booked a room one month in advance. The assigned room was not good as the toilet had mold in the walls and smelling bad. The other room was just acceptable, not what we were expecting for. I believe that all accommodations need proper refurbishment. The location is great, just in front of... More

Location: Bit remote if you want options but perfect if you want to just chill and not be bothered by anyone. 600R tuk tuk to Trinco Setting: idyllic, white beaches, blue calm seas. Cows on the beach. Everything a beach break in SL should be. Staff: Nice but really didn’t go out of their way to make you believe they... More

Realy nice place, rooms are maybe not very luxury but enough for me. Air condition is working and thats the most important. Restaurant has delicious food, but we have to wait for sandwich almost hour ! So order your meal when you are not very hungry. Swimming pool ale clean every day. Thank you for a great tome

The place was recommended to us by a Sri Lankan friend. The location is fantastic. It is in a secluded area overlooking the Indian Ocean and only about a five minute boat ride away from Pigeon Island. The beach is of picture post card quality during May to September. The water is crystal clear and is a haven for snorkelers... More
