Reviewed 19 January 2015

This is definitely not a resort. Just a three stories building. Yes the rooms overlooking the ocean are nice. There is a small swimming pool and a few stretchers but only two umbrellas.
Acces to the beach is a climb over rocks.
The staff is not well trained, young boys who do their best. The wifi is bad. The public area's could have been cleaner.
The food is over overpriced and the only time we ate there it was not good.
The price of the hotel is far too high for what is offered. Big surprise at checking out. Extra tax of about 20% plus 5% for credit card payment. Check carefully the amount on the creditcard machine. They added a digit ( by mistake he said).
Conclusion: Look further. No value for money.

Room Tip: The rooms at streetside are very noisy.

We were only the 5th guests as they only opened two weeks ago, and we were the first to use this particular room.

The location is perfect if you want to be away from the noisy part of the beach. The hotel is right on the waterfront so the verandas off the rooms are right on the ocean. Totally beautiful. Though not on the beach, the hotel is located on the snorkeling bay where it's prettier and quieter. The beach is a 5-10 minute walk along rocks and beach or a $1 tuk tuk ride. The rooms are as pictured with very comfortable beds and linens.

The staff works hard to give you a nice stay. They are very accommodating, even bringing breakfast to the room to enjoy on the veranda. When one of us got cut up on the coral when snorkeling, they had a tuk tuk driver run down to the pharmacy for first aid supplies. Wonderful breakfast service too. Breakfast was very tasty, made to order, and large.

The owner splits his time between his other hotel in Hikkaduwa so isn't always available, but was accommodating when needing to stay an extra night.

NOTE: the deluxe and superior rooms are all the same size with same amenities. The only difference between them is that the more expensive rooms have a slightly larger veranda (about 1-2 feet wider).

There weren't many people staying in this 9-room hotel yet, but I think when it's full, it could be a little noisy as sound seems to travel a lot. Families came, but overall I'd say it's a very romantic place to stay.
