Had an awesome stay here. Breathtaking view of the beach. Just take a few steps from the pool at this hotel, you'll end up at the beach. Trip to SL was very memorable. Thanks to this hotel. The staff are super friendly and helpful too

Hotel staff is extremely helpful and polite. Offered services to the expected standards. Food was amazing. The beach is just next to the hotel pool. Location is quite good. Room was comfortable. Everything is just great. Great value for money.

I was here last summer and everything was perfect! The waiters were kind and friendly and the accommodation was perfect. The pool was clean and I have enjoyed my holiday here. I recommend this hotel and of course location too. Maybe, the stronger wi-fi would be nice.

The Hotel appears to be run by the Stewards without a Manager. Its a modern style hotel but the poor quality material used has made the furniture quite shabby already. The rooms are very basic and the air-conditioning was not effective.. The prices even for the "no view " rooms don't justify what you get in return. There is much... More

We stayed here for 2 days towards the end of our trip. We chose this place because of its proximity to the sea and the pool facing the sea. Even though we had been staying at budget hotels throughout our trip we were kind of disappointed as the infrastructure in the hotel wasn't as good as the other properties we... More

Booked extra days due to the location (everything near), good services, fast speed free wifi, tv with many channels (also discovery, BBC etc.).

Ok for the pool otherwise overpriced, we stayed in off season so beach wasn't good for the kids so we needed the pool for them. Otherwise keep in mind it's a budget hotel, no toiletries available. Restaurant is not great, we paid for breakfast was not worth it. Also very noisy roads

Couldn't have asked for a better final stay on our tour around Sri Lanka. The hotel room was great and especially the bathroom. The staff were very helpful to us until we left.
