We visited for sunset drinks. It has the best view of Talalla Bay. We were the only customers at sunset. The pool was murky.., you couldn’t see the bottom. Drinks were lovely. View was great. Staff polite.
The view is indeed amazing and, endowed with such natural advantage, you’d expect the place to make the most of such an enviable position. Afraid not. Dirty & shabby; incompetently run...we only went for a sunset drink and even that was a disappointment that became a tangle of poor service, no inventory and general difficulty. Pity for the unlucky souls who stay there. The swimming pool does indeed resemble a cesspit.
It is not clean, not organised. Could not use the pool (dirty). Food takes forever and it is not worth the wait. Rooms are big, but sheets are torn and they do not clean while you are there. The view is amazing, though. No sunbeds by the ocean or anything. I wanted to leave pretty much immediately, but as we could not get the money back, we stayed. They told us that we need to pay the booking.com- fees (refused, of course), could not pay with a credit card. No wifi while we stayed (only for the first day).
Very nice, peaceful and pleasant place! Friendly and helpful staff and beautiful hotel. Beautiful surroundings and good location. We had such a good time here. According to my ten year old daughter this was the best place in our three weeks journey in Sri Lanka. We stayed for three nights and would definetely come back!
Expensive, bad breakfast, dirty kitchen, filthy pool. The staff couldn't care less if we stayed or not. We left early despite being charged full amount. There are plenty of places to stay in Sri Lanka , so stay somewhere else !
