We travelled here with Thomson's on an AI basis. The hotel is small & fairly basic, but clean and with excellent friendly staff. The food was very good,particularly the local style ( if you like curry) though a little repetitive after two weeks. The Christmas and NYE Gala dinners were spectacular and a credit to all the staff. Entertainment is...

Seamless airport pick-up and check in even though it was the middle of the night and the hotel was in total darkness when we arrived. We got a lovely room on the ground floor with large glass doors opening out to the garden and swimming pool. Friendly and professional staff, good a la carte food, average breakfast buffet. Lovely location...

A clean spacious hotel with a fantastic beach front setting. The staff were very attentive and friendly although the service could be very slow and exasperating at times.We accepted this as the Sri Lankan way of doing, or rather not doing things. The food on offer was very good but became rather repetitive after a few days. Also if we...

We stayed there upon arrival in Sri Lanka and it was a very noisy night for us. Our room, number 8, although requested differently as honeymoon-friendly beforehand, was by the road side so not ideal if you want to relax in peace. Beach and pool side is good, although always occupied. Food was the highlight of our stay there, nice...
