Rundown property I must state. negelected in many ways.(Toilets,Windows,curtains, surroundings etc etc) Got locked out many times due to faulty room door lock. What is shown in the photos on their website is completely different when one visits the place. The only positive point about the place is the staff been friendly and helpfull.

This is the best hotel that I have been in Arugambay. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The rooms are spacious and extremely clean. Swimming pool is very clean , I just love the ambiance and enjoyed the sunset while having a swim . Location is super worth as most of the tourist spots are in a walking distance. Special thanks to Mr. Pradeep who arranged everything perfectly for us. I will definitely return to this fabulous hotel . Good luck

Centrally located, helpful and friendly staff. The pods and chalets are very clean. Beach is clean and secluded. The sun lounger areas were cleaned daily and relaxing. The pool was amazing, cleaned daily and big enough for a good crowd. The breakfast was fabulous, with great portions, big glasses of fresh juice, eggs and freshly made dhal and pol sambol. The rotis were delicious. Every staff member we met was nice and helpful. No lunch or dinner but there are plenty of restaurants just a short walk away. Great for young kids as well. Safe.

Loved staying here with great staff, specially Ramis who made us feel so welcome so we stayed another night. Great beds, ac, bathroom with hot water. Pool was immaculate as were the gardens. Centre of town to visit other places so easy to walk. Next to amigo surf which was great for a lesson and loved eating at Mantra directly opposite.
