We stayed in Hotel Riu in April and despite the rain and thunderstorms on many days had a great time. The teens enjoyed the food and beach volleyball, whilst parents enjoyed relaxation, the pool overlooking the beach and the tours organised by Suranga.
Just on the beach there are a number of sellers who offer sarongs etc and tour operators. We plumped for Suranga after guidance from another hotel guest and we weren’t disappointed as he took us first to Bentota and a water sports outlet on the river and again on to Galle (taking in the river safari and tsunami memorial). Whilst the river safari was average, a bit long for 2 teens, the driver and other guides we came across were excellent, great knowledge and adaptable to our needs and wants.
Suranga has great knowledge and couldn’t do more to help us enjoy our time here and ensure we were helped when needed, including getting us aloe vera when we burnt after our first day - even before we’d booked a trip with him. Would definitely recommend him to others as you are truly looked after.
