I will be totally honest when saying the only reason we booked this hotel was after thoroughly reading this hotel's reviews on TripAdvisor (and the reviews of other shortlisted hotel options) and I did wonder about quality and variety of food. Result? Wow! Highly recommended!
Reception is spacious and we were warmly greeted by the reception staff..
From reception there is open walkway through to room area with views across the pool, through the gardens to the sea - absolutely wonderful. We were shown to the room which was a reasonable size and overlooked the Indian ocean - Room had twin beds, set up as double, ample wardrobe room, safe, minibar (chargeable), TV with 9 channels covering English, German and Sinhalese languages). Every room has a balcony with chairs outside . Housekeeping kept the rooms spotless and came twice per day (once to make bed / tidy / clean and then again in evening for turndown service and to replenish mosquito pellet).
Breakfast served 7.30 - 9.30 and provides standard English fayre, continental, fresh omelettes / fried eggs to order as well as juices, cereals and breads..
Dinner, served 7.30 - 9.30 with excellent selection to provide variety throughout each day..
As the dining area is on the first floor (above reception / Lobby ) there is great views straight to the beach. Outside tables proved very popular, so if you fancy one of these, get there early.
There is also an a la carte menu which we dined from one of the evenings (seafood platter with chips).
Lobby / reception area with free WiFi . You can also use the gym facilities,
The gardens, which face directly onto the beach, have an ample supply of sun loungers and the staff provide cushions and towels and will happily move your beds to wherever you wish. We chose to spend more time right next to the beach as we swam in sea each
this was the best holiday we've had - totally relaxing time and we'll definitely be back to Sri Lanka and most probably back to the Palms as it gave everything we wished for.
We have loads of photos and I'm happy to share with anyone who wants further info,
Go - enjoy - hope you have a great time.
