We booked based on reviews and found one of the two 'swimming pools' more like a duck pond, the grounds full of dried up fallen bamboo leaves, trees overgrown and the pot plants in need of attention. The main dinning room was dark and the glass on the outside tabls broken. Th table mats were dirty and screwed up. Our room was really musty and the tree outside ment we neither wanted nor could sit there. We upgraded to the new part and enjoyed watching the birds, overlooking the lily pond and being near the big decent pool. We ate there on the first night. We were asked to prebook but had to wait only to get cold rice and the poorest prawns we ate in our month in Sri Lanka. The staff were plesant but the way they cleaned our room suggests that even the newer rooms will soom be poor. They make a big thing of collecting blooms from the lily pond and garden to decorate public areas and beds . Had they left them growing the grounds would have been better.
