I thoroughly enjoyed the character of Mt. Lavinia.
It appeared to be one of the Grand Old Hotels. The environment was excellent and the service superb. I would definitely stay there again.

Great hotel with amazing pool-facelift needed soon
That’s one of the top hotels around. Huge breakfast buffet and top service. Nice beach and amazing pool area. Only the hotel and rooms are a bit rundown. Still ok but will need a facelift soon to keep up with nearby hotels. There was a wedding while and they had pretty loud music from 8 AM to midnight.
