We booked for 2 nights and extended to 5, shortly after we realized we probably wouldn't find a better value along the south coast. There are 4 rooms right in front (closest to the water) and these are a good choice depending on the time of year. This is because Palm's outdoor dinning area is between these rooms and the water. By December I'd opt for a room on the outside edges of the property or upstairs.
The room we stayed in was small and basic, but was quite clean, with ample hot water and a nice covered front porch area. Our breakfast was included and was your basic western (2 eggs/toast/fruit plate) or Sri Lankan egg in some dahl with toast.
We dined for lunch on the "seefood" salad a few times and it was decent at 450rps. I'd recommend the Sri Lankan curry for dinner, just remember you have to order ahead of time. It was very good and was spicy, consisting of 5 or 6 curries and rice and coconut sambal.
The swimming and snorkeling in front of the hotel is great and there is a nice break for surfing as well.
