DO NOT STAY HERE. Complete lie and manipulation about what the hotel is. It's not really "Dickwella resort", its something they're branding as "Villaggi Bravo", which is vasically a tourist bus "resort" for Italians. They hire young Italians to wear orange shirts and flirt with guests, lead pool excercise classes and take care of their kids. Very fake vibe here....

We arrived at this place after travelling down the south coast (coming from the beautiful Mirissa.) It doesn't look anything like the pictures- it is a medium sized resort with "everything" so to speak available in the resort. The food was hideous- wouldn't eat there. The only saving grace was a pizza bar which did alright pizza (but you don't...

We've stayed at this hotel in Feb 2017. We have booked this hotel because it was presented as 5-stars and was located ideally at the lonely beach. We were very disappointed when we arrived as this is 3-stars maximum. Rooms re not great, but clean and rather large, but the meal was much below our expectations. The breakfast is poor,...

We stayed 8 days in Dickwella Resort after having a 5-day round trip in the middle of Sri Lanka. The Resort is nice and has very good location between the bays. It is wonderful that all meals can be taken outside on the terrasse with sea view. It is possible to take a walk on a beach to both sides...

Truly amazing location but peace and tranquility as mentioned on their website it is NOT. Villagio Bravo permanently book 40 rooms every week and they now dictate to the resort management what happens and when. Continuous dreadful music booming out until gone midnight. It starts at 9.30am, very frustrating. Complained 8 times but the receptionists and managers not interested, one...

We are recently returned from a 2 week stay at the Dickwella Resort and Spa; in summary, this hotel has many great things about it but sadly doesn't live up to what it could be.
