We stayed here late January/ February for about 10 days; certainly alot longer than most of the other guests who only seemed to stay for a few days at most. I have to admit to being a little disappointed when we first arrived; it is in need of some TLC etc. BUT the helpfulness and friendliness of the staff soon made up for the initial disappointment.
They are what made our stay special, we did a number of trip (Yala, sea turtles, lagoon trip, galle fort etc) our driver and guide was superb, learnt so much from him about life and culture in Sri Lanka.
One of the bar staff (so sorry, can't remember his name!) even came to the hotel to pick my husband up on his motorcycle and take him to a local festival one evening on his day off!
The beach is to die for, definitely one of my happy places. Goes on for miles and hardly anyone on it. It is a bit of a scramble to get to it, but not too bad. There are a few places in each direction along the beach to get good food and a drink (recommend Jungle Beach bar)
Enjoyed seeing the new 'towel art' daily too!
When all this virus madness is over I really really hope to be able to visit again.More
