After reading all the excellent reviews about this hotel I thought my partner and I should check it out. I've never been to such an over rated hotel. The grounds were nothing special. Although the pool was clean. The pizza was excellent but service very slow considering there was only 2 tables occupied. The English lady running the hotel was...

Dear Mr. Barter, we always appreciate hearing our guest comments about our hotel and our service. We find it odd that you did not enjoy our gardens as most of our guests specifically comment on how lush they are and perhaps the dry season has resulted in less flowers than usual. Raelene has been training some new staff lately so...

We had several meals here and enjoyed every one. The woodfire pizza we had was very tasty and big enough for 2 to share. Our evening meals were delicious and would recommend the fish and chips. Fresh fish and light batter. The staff were friendly and the owner very courteous and a resident of Canada as well as Sri Lanka.

Lovely place with a beautiful garden. We had room nr 1 with seaview and 2 large balconys, the huge one facing the ocean. Very comfortable beds and everything you really need is provided in the room. Unfortunately the nice canadian owner recently sold this property to a local guy. I really hope they'll keep this level of standard.... Some problems...

We stayed overnight at moonstone villas and was pleasantly surprised by how good this place was. Spacious clean rooms, comfortable beds. The outdoor seating area was a great addition too. The only area they can improve would be on the lunch/ dinner menu. The food was amazing but would be good to have a wider range.

Dear Magnus, as you have already noted, I understand your frustration with the listing on Booking.com which has a policy of calling hotels in sight of the ocean - "beach front" and actually I believe that applies to most booking engines. As a hotelier - we do not control what the booking engines can put on their websites as general...
