This was our third stay at the Nilavel Beach Hotel over three year and the hotel seems to get better year on year. Its a long way from Colombo, but worth the trek if you are looking for a quiet getaway. It is a Beautiful place with white sand and blue sea. The beach and the sea is not crowded and you can get a boat to pigeon island from the hotel. The hotel is relatively small (~45 rooms). The staff are very friendly and helpful. The rooms are spacious and comfortable, but air-con, safe and TV are provided in deluxe rooms only. We stayed on half board basis which included Breakfast and dinner. Both the dinner and breakfast buffets were great - lots of choice and good food. When there are not many guests, they serve you from the set menu, so the choice is limited, but this food was exceptional. Some of the best we've tasted in Sri Lanka! The beach bar is great for relaxing. The bar menu choice is relatively limited, but the food quality is good. We stayed for 4 days - Friday to Monday. Friday and Saturday were very busy, as it was a long weekend in Sri Lanka, but it became very quite on Sunday and Monday. One improvement to suggest is that housekeeping could be better. We asked for an iron a few times, but it didn't materialise.
