We stayed four nights at the palm paradise and enjoyed it very much. the whole resort is a little different to what you usually get but with a lot of charm. the cabanas are spacious and very clean and the beach is jut stunning! we felt the rates were a little high for what you get, especially since no beach infrastructure is available and you even have to pay beachtowels extra...
the food is good every second night at the rice and curry buffet and rather boring on other days! breakfast is ok, a pitty you have to pre-order sri lanka breakfast.
all in all a good stay but not a 'coup de coeur'...

Stayed: April 2014, traveled as a couple

After two weeks spent here my experience with this place was overall positive.
Still, there some things that could be done better:
1. Food. It's not exactly bad, still they could do much better. By far. First of all - you have no actual choice at all, they offer fixed menu for breakfast and dinner, posted on a board in the restaurant every day, which give you a feeling of staying in some cheap all inclusive. Yes, you can specifically preorder something for dinner in the morning, though menu doesn't offer much choice either, but who would actually bother with that? Second - food itself is no good. It's plain, repetitive and far worth than in many other places on the island.
Wouldn't decent menu with considerable choices, so everybody can get what he actually likes or want to eat, be better?

On the bright side, except food almost everything else is amazing:
1. Spacious and very clean cabanas
2. Good service and very friendly staff
3. Most amazing and romantic location on the secluded beach
4. Garden, a lot of cute animals and birds
5. It's very calm and quite there, without any loud music, which give you possibility of fully enjoying your evenings on the porch with a book, accompanied only by the sound of waves crashing and birds singing around you.

Surly office staff, pool was out of order, slightly overbearing signage with lots of rules.

Nice enough beach though.

Typical of a badly run and poorly planned resort. Stay somewhere smaller and more relaxed! The family run guest houses are far better on all fronts.

Stayed: March 2014

positive:
- the cabanas are really cool and nice
- the beach is small but beautiful
- the complex is clean and looks also good
- plenty of helpful and friendly staff

negative:
- the cabanas are really too high pricy - goi to Thailand ore Indonesia and you find the same beach bungalows (maybe even directly placed at the beach) for half of the price
- the food is really poor....at some local restaurants you get better food fore less than 500LKR - what really way annoying...there was no variety at all...........for example: one evening there was chicken breast with salad....so, what if I am vegetarian....then I had only salad! WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOW, very cool...NOOOOT, that's actually pretty poor for a price ~ 70€...really pretty poor!!!

It was surely a nice place to relax .Very non commercial natural feeling about it .our villa room was very spacious and self sufficient with facilities.clean and comfortable.
Pool is great during hot summer ,beach is fantastic !
A new hotel is built nearby which is not the best site at the moment ,no idea when it will be finished ?
