Fabulous 8.8 From 28 reviews

Exceptional 10.0
Charming little gem
Great staff, so friendly. Lovely large room, a little rough around the edges but all the more charming for it. Everything worked! Breakfast was good, good choice and super staff serving. Yoga available 8-9.30 for 1500LKR if that's your thing. Small pool but everything you need ie:- water, sunbeds etc. Location is great, tucked away from the busy main road yet only an easy 5 minute stroll to the beach and shops with plenty to offer.

Good 6.0
Very average hotel, i would stay somewhere better
First, the staff were not very welcoming. They were not churpy. We did not get the room we booked, it was much smaller than advertised so do not get sucked in like we did. Pros Big bathroom Soft bed safe Cons Terrible breakfast, very basic Room service did not speak english We ordered a Hawaiian but received a tomato pizza Air con was terrible Electricity kept on going out No hot water small bath tub lights outside the room you cant control they were on all night location was not the greatest, had to walk about 10 min to the beach Checkout was slow and bad service The door was so small The massage was soft when i asked her hard 10 times

Charming jungle hotel
Might find different kind of insects in the room, but that's the why it is, its in the middle of jungle, I've stayed in superior and deluxe room and I like them both, it is located 5 mins. away the busy beach. I love each room has it's own outdoor resting area nice for a book. Wi-fi is not too stable, breakfast is simple buffet with some local dishes. Front office manager was helpful, restaurant staff. the bald man is such a sweet heart, can't wait to go back!
