Loved the villa styles room. Everything was really great about this place. It was very beautiful. However, their so-called private pools are not too private since they are adjacent to the next villa's pool. The manager claims to build a wall to solve this matter soon. So maybe next time if you are lucky.

It was really a very nice place to be in. The mangers and the staffs were very very kind enough and treated us well. The hospitality was unbelievable. The resident manager was too kind and helped is thought out the trip . . . .

We stayed at Riverdale just for one night and we were totally disappointed. They definitely should replace the receptionist girl who does not know even to say goodmorning!!!! But the kitchen and restaurant staff were ok. Room condition is not bad except for leaky shower cubicle. Food was ok but we had to stick to what they offer us and...

We stayed at Riverdale for 2 nights in January 2012. The villa and the service was good. As in earlier reviews, it isn't an eco resort. This place is located along the backwaters and we enjoyed the boating from the backwaters towards the sea. We seemed to be the only guests at Riverdale (They have 6 villas) for the duration...

While the rooms are OK the "resort" is accessed by walking between to warehouses in a distillery. The only activities are a 50 m boardwalk and plunge pools at the rooms. Because of the distillery there are guards patrolling along the perimeter fences. They tended to linger outside our room. More than once I turned around to find a guard...

The Riverdale Villas and Restaurant is located adjoining the factory premises of a distillery. The main building which houses the restaurant, sits on a mediocre garden with sparse greenery, reminded us of a typical budget “banquet hall” in Sri Lanka, and kept us guessing on the proximity to (or existence of) the river and the mangroves which is said to...
