Buffet was good but not much else. If you want to relax and have a drink by the pool forget it. Very few loungers and chairs and those that were there were so dirty there were ant nests in them. No staff around for towels and after walking to the bar to get our own drinks there was noone there either to serve during the afternoon. The manager was actually in the bar when we were trying to get drinks but he didn't know where the barman was either no did he bother to try and find out - just said take a seat and maybe he will be back soon - we were in our swimming costumes. We stayed at four other hotels in Sri Lanka and all except this one were phenominal. We stayed here thirty years ago and it was amazing - so sad - we wont be returning.
