Me and my boyfriend stayed for 3 days to relax after 6 busy sightseeing days. We were greeted with cold, fresh juice and a friendly staff who brought our bags to the room. The room was perfect for with a small walk-in closet, big bed, private bathroom and a small terrace. Everything was clean (for Sri Lanka standards). The hotel...

Holes in sheets, no shampoo in room, functioning air conditioning. Nice pool. It's lackluster. I can't believe I paid 50 a night. Don't expect to buy beer at hotel. There is a simple, overpriced restaurant. When you can find someone to serve, it's hard to communicate. The place is clearly undergoing an expansion. On the upside, the room was clean...

After having been in Hikkaduwa a few days. Stayed at some ropey hostels saving the pennies at the end of our time in Sri Lanka. We happened upon this lovely place. For more or less the same price this guest house/hotel style resort was such a little paradise for us. Amazing pool, great service from the family who run it...

The place is perfect for backpackers who want a payable hotel with a pool (especially recommended in the off season when the beach is dirty). Most of the rooms have just been renovated and are really nice and clean. The resort has been family owned for over 30 years. The only exception negative point is that the pool seems dirty,...

Such a nice hotel and the perfect distance from the beach and a short walk to the restaurants. An ideal place to go as it has a pool so great if the see is too rough, great place to relax after a day out on the beach

When you are traveling all around Sri Lanka it's great to find a place like this. Here you have peace and quiet because the place is just enough away from the kaos which is rulling on the streets. They have nice, clean rooms. They have their own pool where you can just relax. Very nice stuff.

I had such a relaxing stay here. The staff were lovely, the room was good, the pool was amazing! Huge and had it to myself. Short stroll from the beach, train and restaurants. Great place to lie in the sun for a few days, and really reasonably priced. Very tranquil and a sweet pet dog to play with. There were...
