Reviewed 22 November 2017

We loved this hotel. We had a large, well appointed room overlooking the pool and the sea; the bed was massive and very comfortable. The staff were all so friendly and helpful. We were surprised at how reasonable the meals were. We were only B&B, but we had all our meals at the hotel. I even had a surprise birthday cake and fruit bowl!

There were loads of sun loungers and we were given towels. The pool bar was wonderful; we alternated Lion beers and King coconuts. They have a pizza oven and other tasty snacks. I recommend a walk on the beach. We were the only ones as far as the eye could see, apart from the hermit crabs. This is a great place to stay if you want a relaxing holiday.

Dear Ms. Sharon,

Thank you very much for your five star rated review of Jetwing Lighthouse Galle on TripAdvisor. We are very appreciative of your high recommendation. Thank you for sharing your experience with fellow TripAdvisor reviewers.

We are simply delighted in knowing that you have received a friendly and helpful service from our associates which is exactly what all Jetwing Hotels are known for.
It brings us such happiness in knowing you were pleased with the room we allocated for you. Being a beach resort all our rooms are facing the sea and have a splendid view of the ocean.

Being able to offer a great value for price is essential and knowing a valued guest felt our prices on food and beverages were well reasonable and resulted in having all main meals and snacks at the hotel premises itself brings us such pleasure.

Whenever we are made aware that a guest is celebrating a special occasion such as a birthday we are most happy to offer complimentary services. Thank you for being appreciative of our small gestures which encourages us to continue what we do.

Thank you for choosing Jetwing Lighthouse when vacationing in Sri Lanka. We hope to see you again soon.

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.

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.

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
