we stayed two nights in feb.13. first when we came in to colombo and second before we left.
i must admit my expectation were high, and i got disappointed.
the pool area was not attended nicely, the pool itself full of old leaves, not enough sun beds for all guests and those supplied with dirty mattresses . on our first breakfast one of the waiters silled a whole pot of coffe on the floor of the restaurant. of course that can happen but what surprised me a lot was that nobaody cared to clean up the mass, so that directly beside our table the whole mess stayed without nobody taken care???
another thing is that when you pay more than 317.- uss for a night you dont want to get surcharged for an lattemaciato in the morning for your breakfast.
all in all the wallawwa is a niclely located hotel but highly over prized with a service that has to improve a lot.
