Exceptional property, well maintained, staff was especially attentive and very helpful. Superb rooms, well laid out and spacious. The only negative was the breakfast buffet, very basic compared to hotels such as Shangri-la Hambantota. Overall 5 stars

Stayed in this hotel 7 nights. General resort nice, room and housekeeping good. F & B experience on 3 star hotel level. Buffet nights are awful, restaurant atmosphere like in a canteen, food cold tastless and theme nights do not make any sense as there were no authentic tastes, ingredients or experiences. Room service was not up to an average standard of a 3 star hotel.. dishes were cold, served packed in clingfilm or endless aluminium. Several dishes were not available, the same with the wine. No of the waiters could set up a table or open a bottle. The worst experience was when I had asked for a taxi to Colombo. I had to call, wait and discuss with several people. Top management was not available to talk to and I was under the impression that the staff was instructed not to call any manager. This hotel is unprofessional, rude, diescrimating and only bout one thing: business and more money from the customer. Service attitude here seems to be not existing

We stayed in Dec. Meet and greet was memorable experience, with your first step into hotel u already started having great day. Lil surprise in the room for honeymoon was cute and added up again to our already good impression of the place. What made our stay here unforgettable is great staff members. Special thanks to Jeewa and Yohan, they went extra mile to make sure we enjoy our time here. Very sweet gentlemen and kind souls. The food was good, coctails are tasty, staff looking after u and help in everything (booking pcr in hotel, finding a ride to places outside). The only downside was noise from some other guests of hotel(inappropriate behavior, no personal space let alone social distancing, no masks in closed areas, swimming in the pool in full clothes). It was all held up eventually but maybe clear rules for customers on use of public premises would prevent this kind of situations from happening. Beware the prices for tours and transfer are incredibly high, can cost you more than actual night in a hotel. Beware again this is not child-free hotel. There were 15 small kids taking shifts in playing and screaming in infinity pool, sure it was anything but relaxing. This kind of things put the whole level of hotel down, making it from 5 star into average 3 star experience.
