The bar staff are on the ball and they all speak good English as well as some French and German. Foods good, pools good, rooms are comfortable, service is good and the beach... More

We wanted to book a hotel in Negambo for a reasonable price just to sleepover since we were going there for the day. Checked this hotel on a couple of sites and it was reasonable okay with our budget, hence we decided to book it. But when we actually got there, the reality was far behind the pictures displayed on... More

We were just traveling past and looking for a nice place to eat on the beach. For that, this place worked out great. We really enjoyed it. There was a covered area with about 20 tables with a glass wall to protect from the winds off the ocean. Great view of the entire beach with sailboats. Pool next to the... More

The location and staff were excellent but the rooms and the whole place was badly in need of a make over. Beach stunning and while we were there, safe to bathe. The room was rather tatty but comfortable enough. nowhere much to hang clothes

Large hole in the couch, bedding was ragged and stained. Bed was uncomfortable and very hard. Only one mosquito net was provided. Shower was cold. Windows did... More

Apart from the view, there is absolutely nothing in this hotel! They don't have good food, nor are their rooms any better. No blankets, only bed sheets, that too torn off at different ends! Charging ports don't work! I asked for 2 things, and they could not provide me despite me telling them I would pay separately- a shampoo and... More

I would not recommend staying here, the place has great potential as it has a charming layout and incredible beach views, but the owners clearly are not interested in investing in the hotel. The towels and bedding are really old and I was honestly afraid to step in the shower. The staff are charming but there is little they can... More
