“perfect stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 7, 2014

Dickwella resort with its beautiful landscape and very well maintained garden was a perfect stay to relax. We had a large room with terrace and beach view. There are only 20 m from the hotel to the beach. Very attentive crew at pool area, reception, restaurant and room service. By full board we were able to choose between a la carte and buffet.The food varied, Sri Lankan style and European. Sri Lankan kitchen was a discovery for us. Thanks to kitchen staff an executive director Priya. His team and all the others made our vacation in Sri Lanka unforgettable.

We was at Dickwella Resort with my family in February 2014. We are from Switzerland and this is our first trip to Sri Lanka.

We were welcomed warmly by the hotel staff and a comfortable room was reserved for us. The room service staff was friendly and efficient.

The buffet layout was mouth watering with a variety of choices given to be choose from. We enjoyed the salad bar which gave a healthy variety of salads to suit everybody. During our stay the buffet meal items changed frequently which gave us a fresh choice every day. During the breakfast times the staff member who was man handling the egg station was friendly and obliging to our needs. He did a good job in creating some lovely omelettes. We enjoyed the local fruits and it was a refreshing change from the every day fruits we consume.

But the restaurant needs to be improved with proper furniture, deco etc will improve the overall image of the place.

Overall it was a lovely stay with my family and we look forward visiting Dickwella Resort soon.

It was my first unforgettable vacation in Sri Lanka. Location is great, only it's to far from the airport - maybe 6 hours. Gorgeous beach and pool,friendly staff. Food is absolutely delicious. We spend 6 night and it was so cool...Thank you all !!!!

We stopped over at the Dikwella resort for lunch today and ordered from their menu, it was awesome. We had a good selection and the food was tasty. Staff was quite polite and very supportive too. Thank you everyone :)

Stopped by with my family at this hotel for lunch on our way back to Colombo from a fabulous trip to Tissamaharama. The location of the hotel is great with nice sea view.


Ordered lunch for 3 adults & 2 teenagers. What a disappointment it was !!!! The beef was half cooked. Sent the meals back & ordered a different item from the menu.

What was brought to the table was not what we ordered. We were so hungry by this time & tired we just ate the lunch. On top of that the exorbitant price that was charged for so little food.

Not a place that I will recommend & not a place that we will visit again.

The best aspect of this hotel is its location. Set next to the beach, which is good for swimming, though rocky in places.
The rooms are pleasant and clean, as is the whole place, There is an abundance of wildlife around, including palm squirrels who live in the trees round the hotel and metre- long monitor lizards who randomly rock up to the hotel.

A good choice for breakfast, dinner and tea.

Management botched up by trying to charge people $125 (!) each for a rubbish gala dinner on New Years Eve, which led to many people refusing to pay. This was equivalent to the waiting staff's monthly wage!

We would return.

The good things about this hotel was its great food, lovely pool, good location and staff very friendly. The room was clean, pretty average, nothing special. It was way overpriced for what it was, and although there's nothing wrong with it, you can definitely find better value elsewhere.
