If you want some peace and tranquillity then I recommend booking now! The accommodation is spotlessly clean, the grounds are well maintained and you have parakeets, chipmunks and monkeys visiting occasionally in the late afternoon. If you rise fairly early in the morning, you

Sorry for the very late reply. This did not show in my emails but I have found it on Tripadvisor. Yes its walkable in 15 minutes maximum. Takes me 10 minutes. It is flat no incline. We are in a peaceful location tucked away with loads of birds and nature. There are many properties on the beach but the railway line and the main road runs along side so not so tranquil. We are suited that like the peace and a walk to the beach or a 5 to 10 minute Tuk ride.

Airport transfers are 9000rs each way and include the highway tolls. Highway reduces the journey length by at least one hour. There are many day trips, Galle Dutch Fort, Hikkaduwa, Luna Ganga, Brief garden, Turtle hatchery, river safari. Kande Vihara and other Buddhist and Hindu Temples. Longer trips for Yala safari etc You can swap any nights with sister hotel shangri-lanka Village if you want safari. In May the small cheap beach restaurants like Bentota Rock will probably not be open just short term rents with different people running then month to month. The main places like Wunderbar, Amal villa, Diya Sisilia will be open but are not cheap. Direct booking with half board is best option as May has special rates as it is considered monsoon although it doesn't always rain and definitely not like an Indian monsoon. Almost all hotels offer special half board rates so restaurants are usually closed or very quiet.
