“Very bad price for value”
Reviewed March 10, 2012

We spent one night on deco hotel and we were very desapponted about many things.
The price : for 250$ per night you expect a high international standard hotel and in fact it is not the case.
The rooms : very common and full of moskito after the room service prepare the room, very noisy there is noise in your room until everybody is asleep in the hotel.
The service : unexperimented staff.
In fact it is a common hotel for the area but really the price of 250$/night is not common....

We spent 2 days at Deco on 44 oin our recent visit to Galle. We wanted a relaxing bit of luxury and read about Deco.

A 7 roomed hotel with a variety of room options from suites to standard. Our room was standard, one of three by the gorgeous pool area at the back of the hotel. It was very oargeand simply furnished - couldn't fault it - great shower room.

The hotel has only been open for 2 months and we were the only guests. The staff are solicitous without being over bearing. Delightful service - all we could have asked for. they have an excellent chef - great curry cooked to perfection our second night. the menu could be wider though as most people eat in their hotels in Galle. Not all the services were up and running - there will be a lovely roof terrace for dining and drinks. Could do with more pool lounge chairs and a more reading/ relaxing areas for guests outside of their rooms.

The pool was a god send - Galle was so very hot.

Go whilst they are still offering great promotional rates! We had a great stay and would thoroughly recommend it.

Room Tip: Standard room was great as right by the pool - although no outdoor private space.Suites with balconi...
