Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Our stay from our arrival till departure was super great. The staff is very friendly and helpful especially with planning our daily activities. The breakfast was excellent. Employees at the front desk, bell staff, and housekeeping are always so pleasant and helpful; it is pure joy to deal with them. loved the location, easy access to everywhere.

We stayed at Jays Holiday Resort for one night. On arrival, the staff were very helpful and offered to take our bags to our room. The staff were very attentative throughout our stay.

The hotel also kindly upgraded us to a twin room after originally being allocated a double. This came at no extra cost. Rooms had brilliant air cons and a good variety of TV channels. WiFi is available in the resort but you can only get reception at the foyer / restaurant area.

A large breakfast was included in the cost and the hotel were happy to accommodate the time we requested to eat. The food was very good.

There are lovely gardens and a pool area which we did not make use of however they looked fantastic.

We would definitely stay here again.

Charming hotel in a quite area but near Sigiriya and other places to visit. The people working there are absolutely nice and very helpful.
The restaurant was really good with different choices everyday
Unfortunately the water of the pool was cloudy; we were the only customer since a long time so it may not have been their priority which we understand.
