We spent our first night here and from the moment we arrived we were relaxed, felt safe, and enjoyed every minute. We had dinner at the little door which is up the side street. The best food ever! Very well looked after worth the money. Staff were polite and helpful

We as a family had spent great holidays in this hotel. We appreciated the very attentive service in the restaurant, during our pool stay as well as the room service. The food in the restaurant is really the best we have enjoyed in Sri Lanka. Also we we have to mention the management, because our flight was really very late...

Having just returned from what was our fifth visit to this wonderful hotel, it seemed only fitting that we post this review. To have returned five times probably gives a reasonable indication of our liking for the hotel, nonetheless, some of the many pluses deserve underlining. The hotel fronts on to a beach that is usually deserted save for a...

A beautiful hotel, located just next to the wide, sandy beach (and next to the railway, but it really doesn`t disturb anything). Fantastic, friendly and helpful staff - always smiling, making every guest feel most welcome. High standard, clean rooms, simply but elegantly decorated. Wonderful food - each evening was a different buffet, local cuisine included. The best hotel I`ve...

I can't say our stay here was bad; but it wasn't very good either. Given the good reviews we were expecting a lot more- especially as we paid what we believe was top dollar. The rooms are nicely furnished and the staff are friendly. The food is quite good (but pricey) and the pool is excellent. But there are a...
