We stayed here basically for day use while we waited for an early morning flight from Colombo. We chose it because of its proximity to the airport and the fact that the rooms were discounted (although the room rate was still USD225 net). Apart from a good checkin experience, the service is extremely lax - we tried to order a drink at the bar, however after providing us with a drinks menu the bar person disappeared and after 15 minutes we gave up and wandered out. We then tried to order afternoon tea from room service, which was a difficult exercise - and only partially successful. Ditto the restaurant, where in addition the food is pretty ordinary. Our room - a Bawa room - was pleasant enough, though spartan and with very uncomfortable seating. It had an outdoor bathroom (a negative in my view given the mosquito problem). The highlight is the pool. It is fantastic - beautiful, very warm and huge (100 metres) - it added immeasurably to the experience of the hotel.
