We stayed at this hotel for three nights good sized well equiped rooms with a large balconey furnished with a table and two chairs plus a very comfortable sun bed.
Beautiful lawned areas by the pools plenty of sun loungers to relax on and a two minute walk down to a small beach where you can hunt for shells.
Wonderful views of the Indian Ocean so nice to sit on the terrace with a drink just watching the sea.
There was a good selection of food at the breakfast buffet however the food on offer in the restaurant in the evening was poor,service was slow waited over an hour for our meal to be served when it arrived it was a disappointment this happened on the two nights we used the restaurant and as the hotel had few guests using the the restaurant and a lot of staff serving there was no excuse for it,we did try to speak to the someone in the restaurant but suddenly he was not able to understand english,improve the restaurant experience and it would be five stars.

Stayed: November 2017

Dear Guest,

Thank you for posting a TripAdvisor review of Jetwing Lighthouse following your recent vacation at the resort.

We thank you for choosing our most unique resort to holiday at when in Sri Lanka. We are glad to know you were satisfied with the rooms, pools, beach and the garden with its sun lounges.

Thank you very much for taking the time to share your most valuable feedback with us regarding the level of service at our restaurant. We are deeply saddened in reading your comments. The relevant managers have been informed of this for immediate rectification. This is certainly not the way of Jetwing and we thank you for making us aware of this so that we are able to rectify ourselves and keep to the high standards we strive to maintain.

We humbly hope that this will not deter you from visiting us again and that you will be able to notice a clear change in our service levels at the restaurant on your next vacation.

Thank you and we hope to see you again soon.

Ayubowan

Love the entry and stairs. Good welcome and check in. Liked the layout of the hotel.
Room was very large with balcony overlooking the ocean. Bathroom was a good size with bath and shower. Bathrooms are looking tired with stains and scratches on the bath. Old toilets with loose seat. Friend cut open her toe on a loose floor board nail. Plenty of storage areas. Good bar fridge with heaps of glassware. Robes and safe available.
Spa area is nice. Massage was OK.
Two pools. Lower pool is nicer. Some good chairs near both pools for relaxing. I didnt swim at the beach. Too rocky for me.
We had buffets and set menus in the main restaurant. Both were very good. We did not try the more upmarket restaurant or room service.
10 minute tuk tuk into the fort for some great shopping. The hotel has a jewelry shop and spa ceylon.
We thought this was a very good hotel. If we stayed in Galle again we would stay at a boutique hotel in the fort.

Thank you for your kind words about the stairway at the entrance of the hotel, welcome, swift check in process, room with its many facilities, spa, pools and the quality of service and food at our main restaurant Cardamom Café.

Fantastic hotel with beautiful surroundings. We spent two weeks in the hotel and that was one of the best holidays in Sri Lanka! We loved breakfast, our beautiful room with sea view. Really friendly staff and amazing food.
Good fitness centre in the hotel with PT.
We loved the hotel and everything about it. Breakfast with breath taking view was a perfect start of a beautiful day
Walking distance to the Galle Fort where you can enjoy your holiday or just #tuktuk to Galle Fort for about 250-300 ruppies.
If you wanna spend your holiday and just relax without thousands of tourists around you this hotel is a perfect place!
I can recommend this place

This is definitely my favorite place in Galle! I have been going to the Lighthouse regularly for the past few months. The staff is amazing and really strive to exceed expectations. I have never been disappointed with any of the service, food or drinks. During my time I had the chance to know many of the crew and they deserve a really special thanks from me for how the always treated me. In particular Sisira, Gamini, Ramnya, Rohita, Buddhika, Milan, Sampath and Sandaka. Even if you are not a hotel guest, they would welcome you and you can use the swimming pool, set up a sun bed for you in front of the sea, serve you food and drinks and they are always doing their best to get you what you need. What else to say, it's a paradise cove in a paradise country!
