I stayed at Sri Lanta in November 2013 and in November 2004. Obviously being a beach front resort, the weather can play havoc with any property, but in the 9 years since my return, the resort is truly in need of some tender loving care. The staff at Sri Lanta was lovely and very accommodating. The food, while pricey compared to the beach offerings, is prepared expertly and you are given a large amount of choices.
What I was surprised about during this stay was that the rooms feel old, outdated and were definitely not clean. Because the resort was almost fully booked, I was accommodated in a beach front house. As a solo traveler, I felt a bit unsafe in this 2-bedroom ground level house that was cut off from the resort, but completely open to the beach front. Additionally it seemed as if the house had not be cleaned in months. Spiderwebs occupied various parts of the bathroom. The trash can was full of someone else's trash and the blinds in some of the rooms had been broken and sloppily repaired. The air conditioner remote in the main bedroom was broken so there was no temperature adjustment available and I had to stand on the bed to turn it off and on.
Overall I had a pleasant stay and the common areas at Sri Lanta are what you should consider for this property. The beautiful pool, stunning beach front access, the lounge chairs and umbrellas. If you're not planning on spending much time in your room, as I did not, then the location is something to consider.
