Stayed for one night in interconnecting rooms (family of four with young children) on first floor. Very nice pool and rooms were comfortable. Buffet dinner was good although not a lot of options compared to some of the larger hotels we stayed at in Sri Lanka. We were lucky enough to see the Hikkaduwa Perahera come right past the hotel...

Chose the beach front rooms preferably in the ground floor and you will never be disappointed. Good rooms and access to beach is the bonus. Complimentary breakfast is good with an average menu options. Overall a good stay.

This is a long pending review. I and my wife spent 3 nights 4 days at this beautifully located hotel last year April and we rate the place 10 out of 10. We simply booked the place after checking the previous visitor’s reviews and it was definitely the correct decision. Friendly staff from the time we arrived till the time... More

What should I write. About service, about food, about friendliness, about pool, about beach or any thing. All are best at this place. Still remember their range of deserts, ahh mouth watering banana fitters. Can recommend to anyone who like to spend wonderful vacation.

Food at the Hotel is expensive and better you dine from nearby restaurants. Sea view rooms are excellent. sea shore is as near as 50 ft.Many glass bottomed boats are available for coral reef viewing.

Two nights here in room # 20, 24th and 25th of March 2016. Another Sri Lankan bit of paradise. Our room gave us a wonderful view over the sea, the beds were really comfortable, breakfast buffet was great and the ability to walk on the beach before breakfast was great, a quieter and nicer destination than Bali. Restaurants of all... More

The staff is very nice. The location is between the beach and the main road, so if you are a light sleeper in the 'old' wing - you might be disturbed by vehicle noise. Has 2 outdoor pools. We stayed for 100$ for a triple room with breakfast, then upgraded to 110$ for half-board. The room was very large and... More

Good location near lots of restaurants, very clean and nice hotel good comfortable clean rooms. As we left early in the morning they packaged us up some breakfast which was nice. The food was good in the hotel, it was right on the beach. The wifi only worked in certain areas - the chairs next to the pool/reception

Good position near railway and bus stations. Like many people I have stayed many times at this hotel. Food excellent - owner and wife regularly eat in the restaurant. Photographs on corridor walls testament to the many guests who repeatedly stay at this good value for money hotel. - what finer tribute! faberquinque
