We had an amazing honeymoon here. It took about 2 and a half hours from the airport, our minivan did drop other people off at other hotels on the way. When you arrive you take a small boat across to get to it which was really fun. It is an older looking hotel but in general was clean and tidy....

This is a beautifully located property but built in 1981. Bottom line is it needs to be torn down. There was nothing good about this place. Biggest holiday mistake I ever made. What shocked me was that it belongs to Mount Lavinia hotel. Shame.

I loved this place. The resort is on an island and you need to take the short boat ride to reach the hotel. The place is quite big and is fantastic to roam around. There are a lot of activities which can be done here and quite ample place to walk around. The buffet is extremely good with so much...

We gotta take a quick boat ride to the reception from main land. Large hotel so the guests are spread out. Staff was friendly and attentive. Room was smaller than expected and comfortable. Not sound proof. Heard the neighbors chatting which means it wasn't too private. Pool was nice and so was the buffet. Except it was a packed couple...

Our holiday was marred with unclean rooms and unhelpful staff. The rooms were tiny and claustrophobic. Add to that, condensation on the ceiling in the bathroom. The tv was broken but complaining to the staff fell on deaf ears until we went to the reception in person TWICE. The staff had a 'don't care' attitude and not a smile on...

This hotel is so far beyond the expiry date its almost a joke. A bad one that is. My sri lankan guide booked the hotel - ill never do that again. The hotel is placed on a marvelous place - the location (a small strip of land between the sea and a creek) could be truly luxury. Upon arrival the...

We visited two years ago. We were surprised at the gate as we hv to go by a boat to the hotel. Since my little kid was couple of months old at then , we get little scared passing by the river. But eventually it was worthy selecting this hotel. Staff was pleasant and the service is good. We stayed...

This was an amazing experience. the construction of the resort is pretty unique with wood being the predominant component. this is very close to the sports center on the river. the food was good. Not a lot of veg options though. Overall a great place.

One of the worst hotels. The internet pictures promise a lot but the actual place lets it down. One girl at reception is like a flower. Just laughs at guests. It takes her ages to solve a simple issues.This girl is absolutely useless and needs front office training so bad. The hotel is so old. Thank God they will close...
