A Place to Park Yourself and Enjoy
This is a luxury resort where you can park yourself after some sightseeing in the center of the country. It has a very nice meandering pool, most but not all of it shallow for children safety, access to a long and wide sandy beach with a life guard and waves that take some getting used to and might intimidate some. There are three restaurants, one with a very nice buffet for 15 euro and two others. Breakfast is very rich and spans English to Sri Lankan versions of the first day meal. The place is super clean, indoors and out. Staff are very friendly and helpful. My wife came in with a bad cold, and within one hour one doctor and two uniformed nurses paid her a visit and gave her very effective medicin. We spent four nights and did not really see the need to leave the place, coming after days in the jungle and close to monuments, but the hotel staff will be happy to arrange tours for you. All in all, a very pleasant stay for all ages, though not one of the friendliest beaches in Sri Lanka.

Disappointing stay
This hotel is ‘tired’ public areas are very good and kept clean and attractive, but bedrooms are dated and bathrooms are in need of an update !! Towels and beach towels are worn and washed out !! Our biggest complaint was with reception staff , we had to ask three times to get anything done!! No one seemed particularly interested in helping or advising!! We were left with the impression that this hotel is given over to ‘tours’ staying 2or 3 nights so no effort is given to make your visit special, perhaps a good management team is needed to get this hotel up to scratch!!

Nice and comfortable hotel
Although it's slightly old, the buildings were well maintained, and the rooms are clean and comfortable. We liked the traditional interiors in the room. Good view from the room. The foods are good, mixture of traditional Sri Lankan and western foods in a good balance. Personals are very friendly and responsive. You can reach to Tangerine hotel easily (which is connected), and the facilities can be used there, too. Overall we are very satisfied by the stay.

Wonderful Resort. Highly Recommended
I highly recommend this resort. If you are looking for a great resort experience in its own right, either all inclusive or pay as you go, this hotel has wonderful facilities and lots of things to do. Daily activities include yoga, water aerobics, crazy golf, water polo, badminton etc etc. The pool is huge and winds around most of the resort. The food is of the highest quality for the buffets, best I have ever had...pastas, seafood, steaks, burgers, sri lankan curries, salads, amazing desserts. The food service staff are efficient and very friendly. I was also able to play pool and billiards. Staff assisted with early check in which was appreciated. The main building is very royal looking indeed, with great art and extremely high ceilings. The bed in room was comfortable with great pillows. The room was perfect and shower was great pressure. No complaints at all. I would definitely stay again.
