Recommended resort
Our stay (only for one night) was superb.The room on ground floor facing the ocean was spacious and clean.A/c and all other gadgets worked well.The staff was courteous and helpful.The breakfast spread was outstanding in variety and quality.The only glitch if I may call it so was that the large bed had a wooden collar about 25 cms above floor 25 cms wide all round, ostensibly to get off gently.I got my shin hit a few times (bumped into it),never seen anything like that before

Fair 4.0
Great beach side location, badly maintained room
The beach views from the room and the fact you could just walk out of the room and on to the beach sand was just awesome. The sunset view from the beach was great too. The room and service though was hardly worthy of the 4.5 star rating they had. My wife and I arrived at the hotel around 5 PM, but our room wasn't ready and they made us wait a good 10-15 minutes before getting us to our room. The room itself was not well maintained, from paint peeling off the walls to rusted door hinges and sink drain, scratched furniture and a sink that drained really slow. Judging by the room's state, I would have thought of it as 2 stars. The buffet looked great but seemed over priced ($25 per person). I skipped it and went to their cafe, where the prices were more reasonable. Ordered pasta and veg fried rice - they both tasted horrible, so we ended up not eating it and walked out to a nearby restaurant for dinner.

Your staff is amazing. Nothing is too difficult for them. It makes a world of difference when they bend over backwards to make your stay a comfortable one. Good was great too. Your chefs were willing to cook any special needs.

For all those who are thinking of booking this hotel BE AWARE!!! A SUBSTANTIAL ABOUT OF CASH WAS STOLEN FROM WIFE'S BAG!!!,the power kept going on and off numoueous times during our stay,when I got back to Colombo I realised $3200 was missing i got in touch with the hotel asap who apparently looked at the cctv footage failed to tell us is there is no footage capture during the power outages, during one of the outages our money was stolen diapite the room being locked . I even got in contact with the GM of this hotel who who replied with no apology or empathy. i have contacted the sri lanakan tourism police who are investigating the incident,I know I won't get my money back however for future tourist who visit this hotel be AWARE hopefully you won't go though what I have encounterd.

Poor 2.0
A huge dissapointment
1- The hotel staff are very slow, and the problem is they are slow when it comes to solving issues, it was 10PM I am about to sleep and had to call the reception 3 times to ask for someone to come and fix the AC which was very very loud as if I am in a factory not a hotel room. 2- The bedsheets were not clean, the first time I asked the staff to come and change the bed sheets and they did, they changed it with another dirty sheets, so it seems that all bed sheets they have are dirty. 3- The water was cold from the tab till I called them to come and fix the water heater, so staying for 2 nights I had to face 3 issues which were not all properly solved. such a dissapointment.

Poor 2.0
i must say i was very disappointed. It was the lowest point of an otherwise wonderful trip. the service and specially the attitude of the staff was simply awful. You wouldn't expect that kind of treatment towards strangers on the street even less towards actual customers. The hotel was not helpful at all in solving any issues that i was raising. The rooms didn't have any water bottles or even towels. After requesting them several times I had to actually resort to going down to reception myself to get a towel. The lights and the electricity in the room kept going off during the whole stay. I was reliably informed that most hotels in the area offer accommodation for the tour guides and in fact this hotel offers the same service. However upon arrival I was told that all rooms were booked, which I soon found out was a lie because I went on their website and tried booking a room for the same night and they had plenty of rooms available. I did not appreciate being lied to. I still have some issues that I am trying to solve with the hotel for my booking but they are not helpful and most of the time they don't even answer my calls or emails. Not just my calls but they also seem to be ignoring calls to them from (which was the company i made the original booking with) overall I am highly disappointed with this hotel and wouldn't recommend it to anyone. Stay away from them but definitely visit the area it is beautiful.
