We spent 3 nights at the Safari partly to be able to visit Yala National Park and mostly to spend time with a friend who lives close by.
The hotel is nicely situated on the lake. We had a ground floor room with direct access to the grass. It would have benefited from screened doors as there were quite a lot of mosquitos which meant the doors had to be tight shut at dusk. The hotel has been recently renovated with pleasant public areas although these were not protected when there was driving rain.
There is a well sized good swimming pool.
The staff was a mixture of experienced and novice.
Meals were OK, although the buffet for lunch and dinner got boring.
We would certainly recommend it as a good but not deluxe hotel.
