Terrible
It was terrible. We booked through hotels and paid $160 per night. After reading the reviews, we thought it's the perfect hotel in a reasonable price. After arriving there, we had a quick check in and were directed to our rooms. We were shocked! It's a very old hotel and everything in the room is worn out. After 5 minutes exactly, we found that one wall is filled with ants and asked for a new room and complained about the ants. But they told us that the hotel is fully booked and we have to wait for the next day. Cutting it short, we were moved to another room and it was the same. Ants everywhere, worn furniture, stained bed sheets & towels. Also, the hot water in the shower stays for few seconds only. We did book for 3 nights earlier and decided to leave after the 2nd night as we were disgusted and sleepless for the past 2 nights and they refused to refund the last night.

Mixed Feelings
The location on the beach is wonderful, and you are able to go swimming in the ocean. The rooms are okay. We stayed on the second floor and had a great view of the sunsets. We only received two scratchy towels daily in the room.. Staying in a hotel, of course you know that people have stayed there before you, but you don't really want to see that other people were there, if you know what I mean. When we checked into our room, I was a bit shocked- sand in the shower, long hairs on the floor. Not what you expect when you are paying over 200 USD a night. The breakfast buffet was okay. Overall, we were quite disappointed with the food at the hotel. There are not that many other restaurants options nearby, so we ate all of our lunches, and some dinners at the hotel. Many dishes on the menu were not available. Surprised me that they never had any king coconuts throughout our entire stay. One day we ordered a pizza (which we rarely order on holiday). It was a frozen pizza that they had just heated up... and it cost more than what we pay for a fresh pizza in Sweden. The best part of the hotel was the spa, which we visited a few times. More expensive compared to the other spas in Sri Lanka, but the service was professional and the women from Bali are really friendly. So much potential, but not worth what we paid.

Recommended resort
Our stay (only for one night) was superb.The room on ground floor facing the ocean was spacious and clean.A/c and all other gadgets worked well.The staff was courteous and helpful.The breakfast spread was outstanding in variety and quality.The only glitch if I may call it so was that the large bed had a wooden collar about 25 cms above floor 25 cms wide all round, ostensibly to get off gently.I got my shin hit a few times (bumped into it),never seen anything like that before

Great beach side location, badly maintained room
The beach views from the room and the fact you could just walk out of the room and on to the beach sand was just awesome. The sunset view from the beach was great too. The room and service though was hardly worthy of the 4.5 star rating they had. My wife and I arrived at the hotel around 5 PM, but our room wasn't ready and they made us wait a good 10-15 minutes before getting us to our room. The room itself was not well maintained, from paint peeling off the walls to rusted door hinges and sink drain, scratched furniture and a sink that drained really slow. Judging by the room's state, I would have thought of it as 2 stars. The buffet looked great but seemed over priced ($25 per person). I skipped it and went to their cafe, where the prices were more reasonable. Ordered pasta and veg fried rice - they both tasted horrible, so we ended up not eating it and walked out to a nearby restaurant for dinner.
