It was perhaps once a 5 star. Now it unfortunately dated and at best would get a 3 star+/ 4 star. However, the sheer friendliness of the entire staff more than make up for its outdated facilities or rooms. Make sure to book the more recently refurbished rooms. On arrival we complained about the old room with shower screens full...

Everything worked out well at this abode. The room, pool, restaurant, staff etc were of a very high standard. Being above the beach it provides a lovely walk or a swim if the current is safe. Special mention goes to the young trainee waiter at the pool (Rohitha Pushpa Kumara) for his friendly and professional service.
