We spent 3 nights in Jungle Beach in one of the lagoon view cabins. The cabin itself was gorgeous, very spacious with a large comfy bed and lovely ensuite, without doubt the best room we stayed in throughout our 2 weeks in Sri Lanka. The lagoon view was the only let down, go for the beach view if available. The food at the resort was mixed, breakfast was excellent with lots of options/courses. The lunch/dinner menu wasn't what it ought to be though. For a beach resort there should be a lot more seafood on the menu, this was probably the biggest disappointment. Of the meals we did order we found the tuna steak and the ravioli to be exceptionally good, so much so that we ordered these dishes 3 times. The other dishes we tried were pretty average, the grilled swordfish sandwich and quesadilla spring to mind.
The beach the resort sits on is very nice, you can walk for miles along the beach without bumping in to anyone. The water was also flat calm at this time of year so we were able to enjoy daily swims in the sea. The resort pool is very nice also and is in a lovely setting.
The staff were very friendly and helpful although at times they are a bit disorganised in the restaurant. Overall I would highly recommend staying here and believe it is well worth it's 5 star rating on TripAdvisor.
