  • 8.0.Very Good

    The room was good, clean, and it had a great view. Food was good. Great pool and access to the beach. Minor detailing in the room bathroom (dangerous swinging and sliding doors). Electricity shut down a few times during our visit, entailing that the elevators didn’t work and we had to walk down from our seventh floor room.

    Amari Galle is a resort by the beach, 5 minutes driving distance to Galle city The hotel is much smaller than I anticipated, and all the rooms are somehow very close to the road from backside (The reason you don't hear the cars is the sound of the ocean), but it's outdoors are nice and clean. The rooms were somehow worn out and probably need renovation. Staff are very friendly and supportive, for any requests you might have.

    Food, dun, and beach time.

    The Amari was wonderful and they had a nice private beach cove that was fun to play/swim in without feeling like you had a chance of getting sucked out by the current even in less than perfect weather. The pool area and service were fantastic, only down side was they wouldn't let you have your drinks in the pool even if it was plastic. The food selection was extensive and delicious.

    Vakava ja laajalle levinnyt sisäilmaongelma

    Olin 8 yötä majoittuneena Amari Galle resortissa, joka sijaitsee noin 6 km luoteeseen Gallen vanhasta kaupungista. Valitettavasti itseään 5 tähdellä mainostamassaan Amari Gallessa on yksi perustavanlaatuinen ongelma: laajalle levinnyt sisäilmaongelma, joka johtuu rakentamisenaikaisista virheistä ja erityisesti betonirakenteisiin jääneestä liiallisesta kosteudesta. Rakennukset ovat valmistuneet jouluksi 2017. Tämän seurauksena kokonaiset kerrokset ko. hotellissa on vallannut Aktinobakteeri (engl. Acinobacteria). Hotellin johto on hyvin informoitu tilanteesta ainakin sen jälkeen, kun kirjelmöin heillä asiasta. Havainnoin, että asiakkaita majoitetaan silti ylimpiin 6. ja 7. kerroksiin, joissa kosteusvauriot ovat suurimpia. Myös resortin maanpinnalla sijaitsevassa Spa-osastossa on merkittäviä aktiobakteerivaurioita. Valitettavasti tämä vakava ja ihmisille vaarallinen sisäilman myrkyttävä bakteeriongelma pilaa koko resortin perusedellytyksen, puhtaan ja terveellisen lomaympäristön.

    This property has a fantastic outdoor and pool area which is well maintained and well appointed. The rooms are a bit dated and showing signs of wear. The food at the breakfast buffet was excellent.

    Lovely property near Galle Fort

    The Amari Galle is well designed, rooms are modern and updated with ocean views. The pool and cabanas are lovely. We loved the breakfast buffet, it was the best of our trip. However, improvement is need on the service, check in was a nightmare and staff don’t seem to understand pool service. Even with a few hiccups we would stay again.

    The rocks preventing the huge waves from hitting shore were amazing in order to create a safe place for kids to play at the beach.
