We enjoyed a great 2 nights here at MPS. When we arrived we were greeted with massive smiles and a complimentary drink while our reservation was processed. The manager chatted with us at length and showed great interest in our visit and gave recommendations on where to go during our stay in both Sri Lanka and Dambulla.
The room was a little dated but clean and comfortable with air conditioning and a TV (although all ‘local’ channels – none in English). We opted for a Deluxe room which had its own little terrace overlooking the beautiful lake (complete with water monitors which was saw a couple of).
We were the only guests in the hotel for the majority of our stay and particularly enjoyed having the pool area completely to ourselves. One member of staff was quick to rush out with a pair of towels for us, while another was regularly cleaning the pool of leaves just for us.
We ate in the restaurant for both breakfast and dinner twice, and lunch once. The local food in particular was excellent, and was far better value and quality than their western offerings. We had one small criticism of the service on the 2nd evening however, where one member of staff proceeded to watch a local soap opera on a television in the corner of the restaurant while we ate our meal! This made us feel very uncomfortable during our dinner and we cut short our time there because of him.
Overall, the MPS Village is wonderful, a little out of town but well worth the journey. The surroundings of the lake and hills in the background make it a tranquil oasis just a 5 minute tuk-tuk journey out of the bustling Dambulla town centre. Recommended.
