Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The best decision we made was picking Amora for our wedding upon the recommendation of a friend who also had the wedding reception here. We knew the moment we walked in that it’s the ideal place for us, it’s calm and quiet and very well maintained.
If anybody reading seeking help, We highly recommend Amora Lagoon. Mr Nadeeka went beyond our expectations, to ensure a smooth reception, which was achieved with no wedding planner or day coordinator. He was exceptional, all he cared about was our comfort making sure we have the best day ever.
Also My comments here wouldn’t do justice to how good the food tasted. Hats off to Mr Nadeeka who helped us put together the best menu and add ons accordingly within our budget.
Over all it was a fabulous experience at Amora Lagoon. It will always be the first place We would go to, for any occasion or celebration of ours in future. Thank you Mr Nadeeka and the staff of Amora for the exceptional job done. 👏🏽

I do not know where to even begin but from the minute we laid our eyes on the hotel and till the minute we left the staff was exceptional!
The security staff greeted us with a smile & it's definitely a pleasant feeling since they are the 1st people we come across,
Then we met Hiruni, Rowinta & Sadun who warmly welcomed us & made all the necessary arrangements for us for a lovely stay,
Subodha the House Keeping Supervisor guided us to our lovely rooms which were very well clean & tidy, very impressed with the rooms & the modern technology system & Subodha helped us with our bags and whenever we needed anything he would make sure to deliver it without fail.
We visited the Restaurant for lunch and was greeted by Harshana a supervisor who was very cheerful, helpful and delivered our meals on time.
For breakfast, Chamindu & Suranga took well care of us, they were once again very cheerful, helpful and delivered our meals on time despite been a rush hour.
I also want to thank the rest of the F&B team that took care of us during lunch & throughout our stay that never failed to deliver to our needs & always had a smile on their faces, each & every one of them did they're service exceptionally well which were 5star hotel quality standards.

A special thankyou to Mr.Pradeep the Manager on duty who always always had a smile on his face, he went out of his way to help us out and spoke to us most of the time & made sure we had a great time. He always attended to our needs and it was great meeting a humble personality like you. Thankyou Mr.Pradeep

Last but not least, Thankyou Chef.Upul, the food was extraordinary. It was fresh, it was worth the money and very tasty. Loved each & every one of your dish & we could really find nothing to complain about, every dish was presented well & made to perfection. Some of my family members couldn't have American breakfast for breakfast so they made arrangements for a Sri Lankan breakfast and it was prepared to perfection. Thankyou once again chef. Keep up the good work.

I would definitely recommend anyone to visit this resort Hotel, trust me you wouldn't regret it.
Before we left the hotel, most of the staff including Mr.Pradeep & Chef.Upul came to bid us adeu. That itself speaks alot about the hospitality they displayed to us. I literally had no complains. The stay was magical. Thankyou Amora Lagoon for the best vacay ❤️❤️❤️

Btw the staff uniforms were very pleasant

Being natural scientists, both my self and Nipuni always prefer on the natural beauty to keep special moments in our life more memorable. This was one of the reasons why we selected the hotel Amora Lagoon for our wedding day, located near the Beautiful Negambo lagoon..Our wedding at Amora Lagoon was a blissful experience for us and our family. Hindana Ballroom is such an elegant design to accommodate 150+ guests and specious enough to create your dream day magical with decos and music. Food was absolutely delicious and more than worthy for your hard earned money..All the hotel staff including the manager Mr Pradeep is so friendly and respectful. Heart-fully recommend Amora Lagoon for your special day..

Two one night stays, 10 days apart. Both entirely regretted.

1st stay, I had arranged hotel pick up from the airport via email. After a long wait at the airport and several unanswered calls to the hotel I was not collected. On checking in having had to take a taxi, via a longer than necessary route and having had to visit an ATM to be able to pay the taxi, I was informed the driver arranged by the hotel had refused to collect me when my flight was delayed and that they forgot to contact me to inform me as much.

2nd stay was the night before my 0720h flight out. After many assurances that there will be a taxi at 0400h to take me to the airport I went ro bed at 9pm but have endured what can only be compared to trying to sleep in the middle of a very poor quality rock concert from about 20m from the main amplifiers. I've hesrd/felt every beat and every note and it's now nearly 2am with no sign of it stopping. So much for any sleep before I go to the airport... if indeed a taxi shows up.

For quite a new hotel the rooms are also already neglected with stains on the walls, tatty plumbing, dirty shower tiles and chipped plaster work. It just feels like it needs a freshen up.

I had planned to swim when I checked in at sunset, but the pool had taken on a cloudy green tinge since last time so I opted to stay on dry land and avoid any chance of anything unpleasant before my flight.

I did have an evening meal but for the first time on my trip a portions size of fried rice was inadequate and I had to order more food.

Really sad because this should be the perfect airport hotel. It is not and I'd highly recommend staying elsewhere and saving your money.

Spend a week end with a group of 30 ppl, how ever I have mixed feeling, as we have not received the expected hospitality from the hotel.

But we had very tasty foods, which is worth to the price we paid.

There were few wedding functions happened at the hotel and due that security was very tough in allowing our vehicle to get in. No support from hotel staff to unload the baggages either.

When entered to the triple room, realized it has only 2 comfortable double beds , other one is just a sofa extended as a bed by connecting 3 cushion sheets.
Next bad experience happened following day morning, when we realized no water is coming to wash rooms. Even the staff didnt say sorry about the trouble we all faced.
Even Though our team want to have some outdoor activity, no any facility by hotel. Had to visit the supermarket out there to find a vollyball or badminton racket. We were fooled by the photo in website with a boat, assuming we could go for a boat ride.

There is a good pool and not crowded.
Restaurant is good, had some good music there. But staff was trying to push us to take our meals very quickly proposing some time slots.

Rooms were cleaned.

If staff can be little more flexible and improve the hospitality, this nice physical property will get more value than this.

Went with bunch of friends for a day out , Food was not so tasty , Yellow rice & potato salad was very salty , Served by very young trainee waiters , Facilities were average .Not so impressive and for the buffet lunch they charge it’s not worth. Dessert were ok .

Waiter doesn’t have an understanding about the menu , messed up on our order too. Service was poor too.

My daughter's birthday party was held at this venue last weekend. From the time I stepped into the hotel to make my reservation until I settle my bill, I had a very pleasant experience. All the staff members from the Resident Manager Mr. Pradeep, to the receptionist, were all friendly and provided very professional service. All the arrangements were done according to my needs and they were very flexible with my requests. Food was delicious. A perfect place to have a party or gathering.

Excellent hotel with friendly staff and great rooms. It is close to the airport, so it's actually a really convenient location if you need quick access to the airport and/or the highway. I highly recommend this hotel and hope I get the chance to stay here again some day.

We have gone to discuss an event and we were directed to the general manager - Krishan. he has no idea of arranging and organizing our event. he has to call the small staff to get the information even from time to time during our discussion. we felt like he has no experience in hotel management. when we want to see the ballroom he call the staff and ask us to go with him to see the ballroom and come, he did not even want to go with us and explain the location. the staff he gave to us does not know anything. we were so disappointed and left the hotel. we have not welcomed business from that manager. look's like he, time passed in the office. I really don't know why to keep such a manager in the hotel with no experience and just sitting in an office chair than not assisting the customers. Terrible hotel experience ever.
