We had a wonderful time here. 14 days of good food, excellent service and a lovely room. We were a little concerned before we went because of some of the reviews but, we're glad we went. We like to get out and about whereas a number of people here liked to stay around the pool - each to their own. If we wanted to spend 14 days beside a pool in 34 degrees we could go to Butlins. We don't.
It rained most afternoons from 4 to 6 and it was lovely. Most people packed up and went indoors, we went into the pool.
Any resort is what you make it and this is a smaller one so all the staff get to know you to the point that we only had to walk towards the pool bar and our drinks were being poured before we got there. Evening entertainment is average holiday club stuff. But it's fun if you join in.
The surrounding area is good. Safe, freindly, busy and much cheaper than the hotel shop. Also the local ATM charges less than the 3.5 commision plus exchange rate at the hotel.
It IS a long way from the airport, but it's an interesting ride. And, it's a long way to places such as Polonnaruwa, Sigiriya and Dambulla so we did a three day tour with overnight stops in Sigiriya (Sigiriya Village Hotel - wonderful) and Kandy (Hotel Casamara - good City hotel with excellent food) which cut out the daily travel.
