Fresco water villas
Staff were really attentive. The room was superb. Really spacious and clean. Our veranda a overlooked the pool. We had a tour guide collect us the following morning. His name was Siri he was brilliant he definitely made our holiday. Took us to places where there were no tourist we saw the real Sri Lanka. He tailored out trip to suit us, he asked where we wanted and where we wanted to go. He booked us into lovely hotels. His price was really cheap. check out my reviews on Ella Gap Panorama Hotel.His detail are Premasiri Dabare siridab@hotmail.com

A new hotel, very good service, beautiful pool, we found a discount price through "agoda" so it was a good find.
We came with a baby and one time the hotel service guys arranged a wonderful bed cover for our daughter.

Comfortable rooms. Nice garden. Nice & clean swimming pool. Good location. Everything is fine. Quality of fruits need to be improved. Variety of foods also need a little bit to be improved. Its a calm, clean and a good place to stay.

We stayed at this hotel in June 2013. This hotel is a very modern hotel with a good swimming pool. The rooms were very spacious and nicely decorated and the beds were very comfortable. The staff were courteous and very helpful. The food was excellent. The hotel is well positioned for trips to the Sigiriya rock which is close by.

We stayed a night at Fresco Water Villa in late Marh '13 when we visited Sirigiya - The Lions Rock. The hotel is relatively new, opened for less than a year when we were there. We had a room on the ground floor facing the swimming pool and the garden beyond. The room was nice, clean and comfortable (A/C working well), the only oddity is the toilet (toilet bowl) and bathroom are located in separate cubicles. The night's dinner buffet selection was good, there were quite a number of local dishes to choose from and enjoy for everyone and the waiters were attentive and obliging. The reception staff were also attentive and friendly too. All in, a pleasant stay for my family which adds to a memorable holiday for us in Sri Lanka. I would recommend this hotel as a good choice to anyone visiting Sirigiya - the Lions Rock (which is only a short drive away) and looking for quality and value for money accommodation.

My children loved the room where 3 huge beds were placed side by side to turn it to a triple room.

Clean and new, with nice big ground although still need some time for the trees to mature, and the grass to grow.

Buffet dinner was reasonably priced, and breakfast spread was alright.

We have a very good rest after visiting the Citadel of Sigiriya, thanks to the comfy beds and quiet room.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the pools are good.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 17, 2013

This hotel was chosen for us as part of a tour and promised so much from first appearances. it looked modern and fairly new but it delivered so little. The greeting was delightful and we were directed to our room which turned out to be two singles pushed together, therefore not a double. But we'd been traveling all day and were looking forward to dinner. What we were presented with was another set menu - no Sri Lankan food choices. My husband is a vegetarian and he could not do another night of pasta and tomatoes.The starter a 'Russian Salad' was a wilted lettuce leaf, slice of apple not cored and browning and thawed mixed frozen veg with a swipe of mayonnaise! Most of the set menu - soup and dessert - came out of a packet. We were in Sri Lanka and we wanted Sri Lankan food. How hard can that be? Given the locals eat curry and rice three meals a day and the fresh fruit and vegies are abundant, it IS easy. The Maître de appeared to understand and appeared with a selection of curries and rice for the main, but I fear that a good portion of the food served was derived from jars . At least it was edible.The staffing levels in these places should mean good food and good service. How can you call this restaurant fare? You don't. The set menu should be stated at booking and not lock you in and feed you crap they wouldn't eat themselves. I bet the drivers' ate better. Thankfully we only had one night there.

Room Tip: Check that you are truly getting a double and not two singles pushed together
