I had been booked to stay here for two nights and having previously had poor experience from my travel advisors choices I initially wanted him to revise his plan for my family to stay here. Giving him the benefit of the doubt was a mistake. We arrived after a long drive, again, and where met with a murky swimming pool,... More

The entire staff in the hotel from the Manager to the security officer was extremely cordial and helpful and this made 'the difference' when compared with many other hotels we have been to both in Sri Lanka and abroad. We needed a relaxed holiday and we got exactly what we desired. The food was pretty good and the service was... More

Staff seemed stressed and not very friendly or helpful. (Understaffed) Food was great, tasty and had variety. Room was good but the bathroom was small and not clean. The swimming pool was also not clean (had a lot of sand) The view was amazing however and you can go the beach instantly. Overall it's not perfect but worth the price... More

It's is a very unique place which brings a combination of real Sri Lankan hospitality and taste of the Citrus Hotels brand. I would recommend the property not only for leisure but for a business traveler too. It's an awesome experience which non could match in Hikkaduwa.

I've spent here my first night in sri lanka. A very good choice!! The room was large and with a panoramic view on the ocean. The staff is kind. We had a dinner and a breakfast and the quality of the buffet was good. It is well located to visit Galle (half an hour by car).

Rooms great, cleaned every day to a very high standard very impressed on my first visit to Sri Lanka. Outside the hotel very interesting excursions very interesting and again people very friendly.
