Our stay at this hotel started badly. We had booked and paid for half our stay online and when we arrived at the hotel, they couldn't find our booking. After a lot of discussion, they finally found our booking for the second night but not the first night. They obviously had rooms available so why they didn't just arrange a...

Used this as a place to crash on our first night in Sri Lanka before starting a tour the next day. The hotel was more than sufficient for this purpose and from what I could see, would be great for a longer stay. The location is faultless, right on the beach. The restaurant served great seafood and the breakfast buffet...

First night after landing into Colombo the hotel doesn't look much from outside but nice clean rooms, don't reckon much to the see thru bathroom/bedroom but a nice touch if you like that. Great view out back of the sea nice little walk too. Nice food and a table out on beach if you want more privacy while dining

The hospitality upon arrival is impressive as is the decor. You are provided with a fresh scented towel and fruit drink of your choice while the staff checks you in. The room was very clean and inviting with a jetted spa and walk in shower. There are several options for eating at this hotel including an elevated thatched roof hut....

Overall : Very nice experience, nice staff and wonderful sea view. ............ Room: Clean, simple but some insects were there. Food was good and there was variety in the menu. Nice spa ,fine gym facility and swimming pool needs to be maintained cleaner.

Also: plenty of shade, enough beds. Three things made it stand out: the food was very good, had lovely breakfasts and some dinners and all were great. Chef...

We enjoyed our brief stay here. Good location on the beach within walking distance of shops & restaurants. Nice swimming pools and restaurant area. Room was a little basic to what we would normally expect from a 4 star hotel.

We stayed here to be close to the airport and were extremely happy with the hotel and service. It is right on the beach, 2 pools, very clean modern and spacious. Because we had a 2am pickup the hotel organised a packed breakfast for us to take with us. Very generous and suitable. Would stay again
