“No very impressed”
Reviewed October 17, 2013 via mobile

We decided to go to Sri Lanka for a short break from our base on Qatar. It was a choice between there or Thailand but we chose Sri Lanka as it was a couple of horse shorter flying time. Don't be fooled by the transfer times offered by the travel agents to get you to your hotel as it took us 4hrs to get to there from the airport. This was only 40 minutes less than the time it took to fly from Doha. If we had known this we would have chosen Thailand. On arrival I tried to complain to reception that the hotel knows how long it really takes and should be advertising this to their potential guests, however the receptionist nodded and smiled and completely ignored me.

Another hotel which charge you for wifi in your room and pool area.

Pool furniture is tired as were the tiny towels offered (the towels were replaced the day we left). Food offered at breakfast was reasonable but limited choices of decent restaurants in the hotel force you to venture outside in the evening.

I own a no star rated bed and breakfast in South Africa and offer superior amenities than this very poor example of a so called 5 star Hotel.

Love Sri Lanka as it a lovely country and very cheap for the tourist and will return in the near future but alas not to this hotel.

Stayed October 2013, traveled as a couple

Hotel is very nice with nice beach access

Staff are amazingly nice and friendly and they are ready to help as much as they can; they make you feel as if you are home.

near to local market where you can get nice souvenirs and as well near to river activity area where you can find the Star activity near to Bentota bridge.

the hotel might not have night club but they have evening activities like DJ player and dance floor on their bar area and traditional dance program (subject to availability)

Their food menu is nice and room service is perfect.

perfect hotel in the perfect area

Room Tip: Deluxe rooms are better than standards

We returned to Eden after having gone there about a year ago. The hotel has under gone some major renovations up grading the entire facility. We were treated to dinner on the new third floor balcony. This balcony overlooks the pool and the ocean. The food was fantastic as well as a good selection of wine.in addition there was beautiful live music played quietly so as not to interfere with conversation It was a magical night for sure. Eden has become our first choice destination in Sri Lanka. The facility is excellent the food is fantastic and what can you say about a staff that is excited and happy to meet all of your needs and desires. Can't wait to return..

we flew to Sri Lanka for the first time on 5th Sept213 we did 6 days travelling and our last destination was the Eden Resort for our last 7 nights. The hotel is very nice altho building work in the rooms near us was slightly off putting. the rooms we had were lovely (sad not to have a sea view as promised, but did have an interconnecting room as went with 22yr old daughter and 77 yr old mother in law). What made our stay here so amazing was the staff, each and everyone of them made us all very welcome and were particularly accommodating to my 77yrold mother in law. My daughter also enjoyed herself very much dancing on the beach and the entertainment was very good. We had an amazing evening set up by Anton for the 4 of us in the penthouse suite with fantstic views and Anton spoilt us which was very special for us and a memory we will cherish, thank you Anton!. The rooms each day had lovely touches by flowers and towels in the shapes of animals which again were just lovely touches. We had massages and attended the beauty salon and i cannot thank all the staff enough, including the barman who made us lovely cocktails and the young guys who made us laugh, the lovely man who helped us each day with sun beds and towels, everyone was great, the lady in the shop who fitted me with a beautiful Sari - Ali for beng a great eertainer - thank you for everything, definitely recommended and we will return .

Stayed here in August 2010 - but I've only just found trip advisor to use it properly!

My tired, overwhelmed and exhausted new wife needed somewhere to rest her head and really take the weight off, and upon arrival we couldn't not have been better looked after. The service was in fact SO good that we felt it was a bit much at times because they couldn't do enough for you!
A really lovely, really clean, really friendly and amenable hotel with top notch service, and one I would definitely visit again!
We even met some friends who we have kept in touch with for a long time after!

Room Tip: Ask for an upgrade if you're honeymooning and you'll get it, without question.

The rooms near the pool side are the best here. You could walk into the pool and to the sea from here. The food spread was very good and included a large variety of all veg and non veg food. We really enjoyed the pool and the beach the best and of course the cultural show put up there.
