The hotel on the sea front was excellent. I took a room with plunge pool on the ground floor, which was not worth a plunge. The lovely public pool is much better for a swim. The hotel was deserted but staffs were as helpful as always you find in SL. I will give it a 5 star

As other reviewers have said the rooms are amazingly big which is great but they are starting to fall apart. This was the worst place we stayed on our two weeks to Sri Lanka.
