This was the worst hotel experience during our trip to Sri Lanka. It is definitely not a 5* hotel. Do not accept a room on the 1st floor, the room is tired looking, dirty carpet and the view and noice was horrible. Our tour director insisted that the rooms of our small group be changed immediately. The hotel was fully...

The bathrooms could use a bit of improvement. The pool and hotel grounds were beautiful and the food was delicious (especially compared to the dining options in Kandy). The hotel is...
