I stayed at the mount Lavinia for 4 nights, and really enjoyed my stay there. The hotel is a lovely old colonial building situated on the beach front- great sea views (make sure you ask for one with the view)!
The rooms are a little dated, but the location makes up for it!
Nice outside pool, and bar area which is open day and night. Plus the sea cove restaurant on the beach underneath is really lovely and they cook up the fresh fish right there- straight from the sea.
It's a little further out than some of the others, but well worth the extra 20 mins in the car!
