Ranveli came to us by luck and i must say it didn't disappoint us. My wife is very happy of not having a television in our cottage so she got an undivided...

Falsely displaying a certificate as rated 5 out of 5 at the reception. I see from the website that it is rated as 3.5, which in my opinion makes other users either blind and without a sense of smell, intoxicated or extremely charitable. Our room stinks of cigarettes, the sheets are stained and covered in cigarette burns, there is no...

It has a nice layout and the rooms are quite decent. Located close to the beach, with a view of the ocean it is quite possibly the best value for money place to stay in Mt Lavinia. The staff is generally friendly. The room was pretty clean. Overall a good place for the price.
