Dr.shantha, gb2 night family trip
Very good 8.0
Great location
Great beach front location. The bar / restaurant area are also nice but the food is average. Rooms are a little small but clean. Staff friendly and helpful.

Great beach stay
We had a great stay here. Rooms were great, fresh water bottle daily and was our only hotel in Sri Lanka where the room was made up each day. Loads of sports channels in the bar if you were interested. Breakfast was buffet with huge selection and although I'd read a lot of negative comments regarding it I found it actually pretty good and we ate here a few nights. Plenty beach loungers and 2 good swimming pools which were never overly busy. Staff helped arrange for me to go diving one day and after some initial confusion that worked out well and was much cheaper than some competitors elsewhere on the beach.

Average hotel experience. Expensive for Sri Lanka. Rooms can be noisy

Great beachfront location
The hotel was on a great location directly on a long sandy beach. There were multiple restaurants along the beach and nearby which served excellent food. The staff were so friendly and helpful and couldn’t do enough for you. The hotel was a bit shabby in parts but the location and staff made up for this . A great find.
