After a long flight and car journey, arrival at Jetwing Lighthouse can on initial impression appear slightly disappointing - the uninspiring entrance leading to a concrete portico. However, enter the reception and climb the magnificent staircase and you begin to appreciate the attraction of this property with its stunning views due to the elevated position above the ocean. We were met with a choice of welcoming drinks before being escorted to our room which was extremely comfortable and well appointed. The quality of the food was excellent and very well presented. We particularly liked the extensive breakfast buffet and unlike other reviews, we found the service very quick and efficient. Oil lamps on the rocks and the crashing waves created a lovely ambience when taking dinner on the terrace in an evening. Dinner consisted of either set menu or a la carte and was also of a high standard, particularly on the Sri Lankan buffet evening. Also of mention is the exceptional service of the pool staff who service the sun loungers on the grassed area adjacent to the beach. The convenient location of this hotel to Galle makes it an ideal place to explore southern Sri Lanka. The staff are very professional and accommodating and we would have no hesitation in recommending the hotel. No, its not perfect and certain areas require a little updating but during our stay we witnessed that renovations were starting to take place.
