The hotel is at a nice beach, but far away from everything else. Except a very loud and noisy bar beside the hotel there is nothing to see, explore or similar. (The bar is not associated to the hotel, but you can hear their loud beats until late at night when you book in the right (not the left) wing... More

We were very happy with our stay at this hotel although it was too expensive. The room was large with good air conditioning. There was a small table at least. The balcony was nice and all have a good view but no way to hang wet clothe. Food was fine. More meat than in usual Sri Lankan fare. Upon arrival... More

We stayed here for three days, as our tour started here. The location on the beach is nice and quiet and therefore the best of the hotel. It's fairly isolated from de next town. The rooms are reasonably clean, but for instance the airco was completely rusted away. Like other parts of the hotel, like beach chairs, erverything is slowly... More

We stayed at the Olenka in April 2012. The hotel needs a lick of paint but because the location is so fantastic it really didn't matter. The staff were first class and very helpful nothing was too much trouble for them. The owner was a lovely man who evacuated all the guests to his house when a tsunami alert was... More

The Olenka hotel has a lot in its favour, the perfect location, eager and willing junior staff but sadly lacks any kind of managerial direction. It is in need of a major injection of cash to refurbish the public areas. The rooms are fine, large and spotlessly clean thanks to the excellent room boys,plenty of hot running water, the A/C...
