The Fortress is a wonderful property. It has 53 rooms which are well designed and all sea facing. The room comes with every convenience and is very comfortable. However we felt that the resort will find it difficult to sustain such prices. There is not beach access at the Fortress and although the pool is wonderful, this is a big disadvantage. They only have one restaurant, although the food is excellent, the service is poor and slow. It is hard to justify 5 star prices when they can't offer a variety of cuisine. A lovely place to base yourself and explore the South Coast of Sri Lanka. There are many wonderful beaches and restaurants not far away to discover and the Fortress is a great place to come back to each evening.
