I stayed at Dickwella Resort in April 2014. This was my second trip to the hotel and it was a vast improvement from my first trip.

From the reception to the service at the restaurant the staff were friendly and welcoming. The room was spacious and clean. The room boy did a good job of cleaning the room spotlessly.

The location is beautiful and an ideal place to relax and unwind. The lovely beach and the grassy ground of the hotel was soothing.

The food was delicious and they had a good spread of food for all three main meals. We had many choices when it came to salads and desserts and the healthy corner at the breakfast buffet had a choice of food items to guests who were keeping a watch on their diet. The rice and pasta items served were tasty and there was a choice of meat/seafood dish to suit everybody's liking.

Keep up the good work and look forward to return to Dickwella Resort soon !!!

Dear Mr. Thushan,

Greetings from “Dickwella Resort & Spa”
It was our pleasure to welcome you back for your second stay here with us.
As you have mentioned we have taken great strides in improving our standards from the previous visit of yours, and with our new executive chef we have managed to change the entire buffet and adding a few extra stations such as the Healthy corner. At present we are doing a few more changes to the resort and you would be able to see more improvements on your next visit.
Hoping to welcome you back on your third visit

Thank you,

Great location great beaches great food and very friendly and helpful staff. I was there with my wife and our two teenage sons for four days and had an awesome time. Number of cable TV channels are a disappointment and I hope they will improve in future.

Location is very nice, spacious rooms, courteous staff, air conditions and other electrical equipment need to be upgraded!

Kids love the food and the pool.

Triple rooms should be provided with a proper bed not a sofa to sleep!

Overall the hotel is good!

Me with my Husband spent our wedding trip in beatiful island Sri-Lanka in april 2013, and be located in this Hotel one week.
My impressions was very well
This Hotel have attractive location - based in the cape and have 2 nice lagoons both sides (in my photo You can see one of them)! You can go to swim both. Hotel have cozy swimming pool with ocean water alternatively.
Food was very different, very tasty and delicious (we has breakfast and dinner includes), and a lot of seafoods as I like! Desserts was nice too! Hotel offer wood veranda (terrace) with beautiful ocean view, when You can eat! It was really amazing!

Staff was very kindly and helpful
Hotel has cozy and comfortable green area and own security.

The one disadvantage (in my opinion), the meal which Hotel given us for trip to the airport - was not good, but it is the one.

The best prefferens of this Hotel: we has only 10 metres to Ocean from our room (and has separate exit), so I can hear ocean waves every night, and it was really beautiful and unforgettable!!!

With best wishes from Ukraine, Nataliia
