Worth for the price. but unfortunately the meals were not that satisfying. very small selection. staff was not that friendly as well. but the rooms were appreciable and the sea side view from the room was very nice.

Stayed at this hotel for 3 nights. Chose this as it is 15 minutes from the airport so after a long flight a great relief. Welcoming and friendly staff. Had rooms overlooking the beach ..great view of the sea and sunsets. Good big pool though didn't get chance to swim. Long sandy beach for walks and enjoying sunsets. Good variety...

I was really impressed by the service in this hotel. We arrived at 4am from the airport and the check-in was smooth and friendly. The man at the desk noticed it was my husband's birthday and a lovely personalised cake and balloons were produced at dinner that evening - all free of charge! The hotel has a nice pool and...

Staff were helpful and friendly, however, the rooms did not live up to standard of the lobby. The curtains and lounge in the room were stained and grubby. Strands of hair were on the lounge and the linen was clean, but old and worn. I felt the need to put tea tree oil in the shower with my children, it...

We thank the guests for their comments on TripAdvisor. And we have taken remedial action with regard to the stains on the sofa and the curtains. There are stains due to the Fabric used and the Sun Cream used on the fabric. We will be Refurbishing everything in the month of June. We do clean the beach on a daily...

Stayed one night in this Hotel with my adult daughter. It was an emergency stop over after arriving late from London. We were given a very large comfortable room with a large bathroom. The shower was huge. Didn't really see much of the Hotel's facilities but there was a large swimming pool and it was by the beach. The breakfast...

I have a similar view to many others who used this place to recover from a long haul flight before continuing their tour of Sri Lanka. We stayed for one night on our arrival and found the hotel to be OK for a short stop; I'm not sure I would want to spend an extended period although we met some...

We only stayed one night as we wanted somewhere with a beach close to the airport before starting a more extensive tour of the island. Facilities were pretty basic, with few frills, but there was a nice, small pool. The small bar area, seemed to be frequented by All-Inclusive types determined to get value for their money! Service was a...

Good food, good ambiance, good rooms (especially if you get the ones with the balcony), very clean and awesome food :D you can walk right up to the beach but since the beaches are said to be too rough, its not so advisable to go there.

This hotel was our original choice and about two week before we were due to arrive our travel operator said hotel over booked and they were moving us. However we were not happy with our alternative so we insisted that we stayed in our original choice as it was a group booking of twelve. I am so glad we stayed...
