We stayed in an Ocean View room and wow what a view! The ocean was about 50/60 metres away and due to the time of year and monsoon the waves were sometimes quite high. The added bonus of being so close to the incoming tides was the sight of sea turtles, a first for us. The room had an enormous very comfortable bed facing the sea. The bathroom had two entrances and an amazing amount of room. The breakfast buffet included everything you’d expect from this class of hotel. We only dined in twice. I didn’t think the menu was particularly extensive, but themed nights were well worth the money. As has been mentioned before, the staff really made our stay most enjoyable. Thank you so much to everyone at The Fortress.

Room tip: Ocean view

We stayed here for 4 nights at the end of our honeymoon and it is proved to a fantastic place to relax and unwind. The location is ideal as its close to Galle but right on the coast. The view and the pool are stunning and the staff throughout the day could not do more for you. The breakfast buffet is great, with eggs fresh and made to your liking and the themed nights in the evening are a nice touch alongside the a la carte dining option.

Room tip: Ocean View room is worth it.

We spent the second week of our Sri Lankan honeymoon in this beautiful setting. We had a wonderful experience and found the staff extremely welcoming and helpful at every turn. The food was generally excellent - Crab Fest night in particular was my favourite.
I even got to see sea turtles swimming in the sea by the pool. One of the wonderful staff pointed them out to me at high tide.

We stayed here for a night and I wish we could have stayed longer. The service we received was exceptional and the staff constantly looked into our needs. The variety of food could be better but the view and the ocean view rooms steals it all. They also have the complimentary Sauna and the Steam room which is plus and has the best amenities in the rooms
