“i agree with sabine”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2012

we went in polhena beach and meet nishanta and is family this summer. We have a great time an absolutely no problem....It's very dangerous to write such lies in internet. This report as well as this of maria seems to be a fake made by another hotel....

“polhena beach Sri Lanka”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2012

My name is Sabine V. I live in Sri Lanka for more then three years in the village named Madiha close to polhena .
I read in "tripadviser" that someone accused Nishanta from Coral Beach abusing children and hè was in court for that !
Now I know Nishanta and his family for à long time and it is sad that people dont know what the impact is of such lies on internet for those people ! This man and his family are the honest people i know. Shame on you !!!
