The staff were friendly and efficient. Buffet breakfast was excellent a huge selection of dishes to suit all tastes. The pools and gardens are...

Having stayed on other high rated hotels in Sri Lanka this hotel was not in the top of our ranking but location on a wonderful beach makes it worth staying at a couple of days. The food in the restaurant was very good while the breakfast and buffet was average
