We had 3 nights at Green Paradise in December. It is a beautiful place with lovely rooms and a great setting. The staff were very friendly and eager to please. Previous comments about long waits for meals seem to have been taken on board and they offer a buffet every night. The food was lovely although the buffet was more expensive than some other places.
They could do a little more with the space they have and they could provide more information to residents. There is a rocky outcrop above the hotel that would be great for early morning walks but we didn't realise this until we were leaving. The manager was telling us that the hotel changed hands fairly recently and that they would be in a position to put in further investment from the beginning of April.
The location was fantastic. There is nothing else around and, because it is at the southern end of the cultural triangle we were able to get to it in 3 1/2 hours from Colombo airport (albeit arriving at 7pm on the 26th of December when the roads were relatively quiet).
I would definitely consider staying there again.
