We stayed here for 4 nights over Christmas December 2016. On arrival the welcome was swift and perfect. The reception staff for the whole of our stay was second to none. Our suite was stunning with its own plunge pool and beautiful outside private 'courtyard.' On Christmas morning I requested tea lights to try and create a little Christmas ambience!...

The hotel was charming and comfortable. The staff were extremely friendly, honest and helpful and made our experience so much better. The food was very good and the hotel was family friendly. Unfortunately you are not advised to swim in the beach in front of the hotel because of the strong current, but they have a large and comfortable pool...

Soon as you walk in you know the place is a little special. We were recommended by friends and it did not disappoint!

We were staying at a large resort hotel we didn't like so decided to find somewhere more up our street - found this place via Mr & Mrs Smith. We ate here two nights running, food was delicious, service fantastic and a lovely ambience (GORGEOUS interior). We saw the train going through a couple of times and thought it quite...

I stayed here because the review were good, but instead this place is awful because: 1. The railway is literally passing in the garden, so a lot of noise, it's dangerous (you have to cross the railway to go to beach!) and people from the train are looking at you sunbathing! Unacceptable! 2. The room (n.3) was ridicously small, inaccettabile...

4 nights in a very relaxed setting right by the beach. 13 rooms so never fighting for space around the pool. Staff are very attentive and the rooms are great. Go for the local food here as it's all we ate and it really was fantastic, especially the breakfasts (let them know the night before). The grounds are lovely and...

Stayed at this small boutique villa in Bentota for a few nights with a large group of friends and family and was blown away by the charm of this colonial era villa. Cross the train track behind the Vila to reach the beach for soft sand and a stunning sunset. Highly recommended - visit the turtle sanctuary nearby.

We had an absolutely brilliant time at Paradise Road. The hotel is a boutiquey, the architecture and the decor sophisticated but sensitive. The staff were so welcoming and kind - the food is especially delicious and we were even allowed to cook in the kitchen to get to grips with local cuisine. A train running through the garden is what...

Of the ten hotels we have seen during our trip this was the best. Certainly we love the architecture. But the pool was wonderful, service outstanding and food great. Because of the season, we could not go swimming in the ocean. But that was clear from the beginning. And the train basically running through the marvelous garden became rather an...
