We stayed here for almost two weeks. At first, I had a few issues with our rooms, but I was very impressed with the manager who quickly rectified our problems and did his absolute best to ensure we had a wonderful and relaxing stay. The beach is gorgeous...waking up to that view every morning is tonic for the soul and really helps you to unwind. The staff were lovely and friendly, especially in the restuarant, where our children were frequently cuddled and the food and beverage manager was often asking if we were happy and if he could do anything to please us. The children were very excited to see monkeys playing around the hotel. You can also go dolphin watching. We hired jetskis a few times and took a boat trip upshore, which was just ok until we spotted a whale on the way back. We were thrilled, especially because it wasn't even whale season! There's nothing much to do and see in Trincomallee itself, but if you're looking for a gorgeous place to relax on a stunning beach with friendly faces doing all they can to ensure your holiday is a happy one, then this hotel is for you! My only suggestions would be to remove the dirty-looking, green 'pond' at the front of reception, next to the pool, as it doesn't suit the fresh, sea-side vibe of this hotel...it would be better used as a kids pool or a place for a pool fountain. Also, the beach needs more shade and sun beds, athough the manager did say they are working on this.
