“villa Ferola - killuke Eestit kuumas troopikas”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 2, 2014

We visited Villa Ferola in January 2014 for 7 nights. Were surprised and thankful for very friendly and effective service and support by hostess Kristel and manager Kumara, who is a excellent cook. Villa is the best place for family and/or friends meeting holiday. All you need is available and for the reasonable price.
We will be back very soon!

We stayed at Villa Ferola for 11 nights in September 2013. We had a great time. The sea with a coral reef, turtles popping up time to time, is just outside the gate - in fact you can have the breakfast table set up few metres away from the sea, if you want. There are is a cove to the right of the front gate if you like to have a dip in the sea alone, or the fabulous Polhena beach with lifeguards is only 5 minutes walk away. The villa is very secure and clean. The must have WiFi internet is available throughout the day.

Though I have given the room a rating of 'average', they explained us a 30 room new development will very soon be underway. Rooms have A/C, fan, en suite toilets with showers. No hot water, but when the weather is so warm, who needs hot water? The caretaker cum cook Kumara is a great guy. All you got to do is to tell him what you want for a meal. He will provide you an excellent meal whenever you like it. Polhena is a excellent spot for snorkeling. The villa has its own well maintained and comfortable van to hire.We will be very happy to stay in Villa Ferrola again.

Room Tip: Rooms on the left side and the front has garden view.

We stayed at Villa Ferola in September 2013 for 12 nights. The villa is comfortable, clean & tidy with beautiful gardens where we regularly eat our meals. The caretaker Kumar is also an excellent cook and supplied us with delicious meals at a reasonable cost. There is fridge, microwave, and washing machine that we were able to use during our stay also free wi-fi which was great. Kumar is very friendly, speaks a little bit of english (enough so we could understand what he was saying) and arranged transport to take us on a trip to a safari trip and for local tuk-tuk drivers to take us into nearby towns.

The only thing that lets this otherwise excellent villa down are the rooms, although they were clean, neat and tidy we felt there wasn't enough storage for our clothes. In saying that we did manage to keep most of our clothes in suitcases and only brought out what we needed on daily basis, so this is only a personal view point as we would preferred to have them hanging up to prevent creasing.

The villa faces the sea and there is direct access to the ground opposite where you are also able to sit and watch the sunrise/sunset or eat your meals. Polhena beach is about a 5 minute walk from the villa and Matara town a 5 minute tuk-tuk ride away. We would recommend this villa to anyone visiting Sri Lanka.
