Travelled beginning of June. The weather at this time of year can be varying with some days of sunshine and others overcast and can get windy as it is the end of the monsoon. Say that, the temperature was high 20s/low 30s all the time we were there with tropical rain that lasted no more than an hour and mainly... More

We stayed in the hotel for 10 nights in July. The experience is very pleasant. Food is good with lots of choices in the main buffet restaurant. The air condition room with the desserts is a fantastic design which is practical and a fantastic display of fruits and sweets. Our room is 100 (supposed to be sea view superior) and... More

We have just returned from Sri Lanka and the Club Hotel Dolphin (12th-22nd July). We had the Gold/Plus All Inclusive package which we chose when booking our holiday as it was very little more per person. This gave us unlimited access to all restaurants/snack bars etc and included all food, drinks and activities. We had previously read that this package... More

I've just returned from honeymoon here in July 2016. We had a fantastic week in a sea view room with a balcony, staying all inclusive. The small touches- like the hand towel sculptures on our bed and a honeymoon cake- really made our holiday for us. The food was brilliant, we had most of our meals in the buffet main... More

It must be said that everyone throughout the holiday always greeted you with a smile and a 'good morning' to maintain that friendly... More
