This is a lovely hotel for a relaxing holiday. I enjoyed my stay there although I've been not in a high season there (June), it rained occasionaly and the ocean wasn't calm, but you could still go in the ocean as the waves weren't too high.
The hotel has rather quiet atmosphere, except of 2 days when there was really an "invasion" of native Sri Lankans in a group of about 30-40 people (as we were told by the manager - they came for a corporative holiday just for the weekend), they were very loud near the pool, at the restaurant, in the garden - like everywhere and they were playing their national drums and other music instruments in the night...
Food is good there, with a selection of European food and spicy national food as well.
Room service not bad either, room cleaned twice a day and they put electric repellents on in the room every night.
The garden is beautiful there, they have an elephant, little chipmunks are running everywhere and also there's a big lizard.
Overall hotel is very good, but I wouldn't advice it for young singles as there's practically no entertainments in the night and generally, I went with a friend, but it was actually what we wanted - calm and relaxing atmosphere so we enjoyed it.
