I literally don't know what to say about this place. We arrived having booked a Sea View Villa. Our villa did certainly not have a 'sea view' and was incredibly dated. The toilet leaked all night all over the bathroom, and the food at the restaurant was almost inedible. We complained to the Sri Lankan 'manager', and he admitted that all sea view villas were booked and he offered us free dinner and drinks to compensate. As we had a very short trip in SL, we were willing to pay more for quality accommodation, and this certainly wasn't it. After finding out the manager was in fact Italian, we asked for him. He was out surfing! This was one of a number of bare face lies the SL manager said to us. The Italian manager was never there when needed, and actually sat down in his board shorts to eat dinner when all the guests were eating in the restaurant! I was incredibly thirsty in the night and came to find some water at reception. There was no staff anywhere so had to do without. The grounds are beautiful and the beach stunning. What the place needs is ALOT of money spending on it, and an actual manager. 2-3 star hotel calling itself a 5 star establishment. Awful.
