This was a last minute holiday booked through Kuoni. We like relaxing beach holidays with good food and the opportunity to explore the local area, and this was almost a perfect fit.
The location, on an excellent beach is relaxing, but for the seemingly endless number of marriages which took place whilst we were there.
The rooms are pleasant and clean. We had a room on the ground floor just 20 feet from the pool and had no problems with noise.
The only disappointment in the hotel was the food. We were booked half-board but found the evening buffet unexciting and repetitive with too much emphasis on vegetarian dishes and deserts. Meat dishes disappeared quickly and on a couple of occasions we found the barbecue servers had 'run out'. There is a second restaurant in the hotel which is 'a la carte',but expensive. For lunch we ate at a restaurant a few yards north along the beach which was excellent.
Highly recommend the 3 day trips stopping a couple of nights elsewhere in order to see the historic sites and temples. Our personal driver for the trip was great fun and showed us how not to get ripped-off when buying drinks etc.
Sri Lanka itself is a beautiful island to visit, rich in culture and friendly people. However I doubt anyone will escape from the island without being ripped-off in one way or another - in our case the 'Spice Garden' sale of ayurvedic treatments. Don't bother buying cinammon and nuts - they are cheaper at the supermarkets when you get home!
Worth visiting once, but nothing to really go back for.
