Of all the places we stayed in Sri Lanka this was the most anticipated place we wanted to stay and turned out to be the biggest spoilsport.
For starters this seems to be only place in Sri Lanka where wifi is chargeable. Even the smallest coffee shop leave alone hotels/ guest houses in Sri Lanka boosts of a free wifi and being taj that's the least one can expect. The construction on the property is going on for long now. Swimming pool is closed. The only recreation available is a TT & carrom table. Real poor they cannot add any other facilities for guests.
The rooms have TV from the 90s generation (picture tubes) no plasma/ LCD/ LED. Yup and this is Taj.
The only good part of the hotel is the location on the beach. Apart from it, stay is the hotel is a disaster ..either it seems they are too hind handed or totally out of tune with the market.
