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.

Ok hotel
We were only there a day 2 days one night. The chef Neerl made us a cheese and onion toastie his first time which was kind and not on the menu. We booked a sea view but got a pool view but couldn’t move us as they said they were fully booked ! That was it! It’s over an hour away from airport and cost £50 for taxi which is expensive.

Lovely family resort!
we came as a family group and had a wonderful stay. Service is excellent, and staff are very friendly. the hotell is wast with several restaurants to choose from, and the food was very nice. the hotel is right next to the beach. when we were there the sea was a little too rough for swimming in the waves, but we still had loads of fun in the large pool. I can easily recommend this hotel :-)

Ok to stay for one night
It is an old hotel but pretty well maintained since the room was clean. The staff members at the restaurants were amazing and the taste of food was good. But the staff who helped us with check-in was not comfortable speaking in English and gave us a wrong information that I had to inform the reception in order to have buffet for dinner. After we got into the hotel room she called us to come down to the reception to get a 'repeated band' since it was my second visit. We asked her whethere there would be any special service by having the band. She told us "I don't know". It was very annoying to go down and get the band around my wrist. There was no point having the band.
