The hotel is old fashioned but kept neat and clean. The Pool & buffet was good. Life guard was available so I did not have any fear of kids venturing into the water. Clean beach compared to down south. We also made a trip to Pigeon Island where we enjoyed the snorkelling.

We had a nice surprise on arrival, and we got a room with private balcony and with view of the sea. The rooms are very well appointed. The grounds of...

Beach is beautiful and within easy access of the hotel. Some of the staff could be a little more courteous and obliging. Overall a very pleasant experience for us, parents & young...

Hotel is a bit tired. Lovely beachfront location including cows on the beach at sunset. Safe swimming. Easy access to Pigeon Island if you're in to diving and snorkelling. Spa treatment prices a lot more expensive than India,Vietnam,Myanmar,Cambodia. Don't walk too far north along the beach as there's a navy base with a fence and armed guards. Saw black-faced grey...

The beach area was the best part of this hotel - it was a nice quiet, peaceful beach with no-one attempting to sell you anything. Helpful hotel staff with towels and setting up beach chairs around umbrellas. Nice water to swim in also. The hotel however left much to be desired. The bathrooms were the main issue - they were...

When we first reached to hotel, we were greeted by a wonderful friendly front staff. Hotel was well maintained and we received a wonderful service from the staff during our stay. It’s good if Chef can add some Sri Lankan fruits ( mango, jambu, passion fruit etc) to the buffet. We had a wonderful time with the boat ride and...
