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.

Dear Sovereign365, Thankyou for your return visit - and very glad you enjoyed it as much as your last - and looking forward to making it much the same on your next! Yes indeed - we are no longer associated with Jetwing. We are the same owners, but we have decided to manage the property ourselves. All our staff and team have stayed with us - which is why you continued to appreciate the good service I believe...and the ability to provide our guests even better value for money is a bonus! Thankyou for your lovely comments and very much looking forward to seeing you again next year. Best regards Charles

Truly one of the best hotels in Sri Lanka. And we saw a lot of villas when we stayed with friends. Yes, the furniture is not new, but everything works properly. The relaxation and level of service you receive - you forget about furniture or any other inconveniences. Friends came to us to swim on our beach, since in other places there are very big waves, but here there is a beautiful quiet lagoon. Very tasty food. Food prices are cheaper than in a restaurant on the street. No need to travel anywhere for lunch or dinner. Overall I highly recommend this hotel.

My wife and I enjoyed very much our third stay in the last 3 years at this hotel. It was a big Birthday for my wife and the hotel staff were kind enough to aid our request for a cake to be delivered to the room We stayed again at the pool side villa that we like, the staff we kind enough to get this despite initially the Villa being block booked before our arrival. All staff were helpful and obliging. Minor issues were quickly and professionally dealt with. Again senior staff Shalini and Nirodha were fantastic We were fortunate to meet on of the European co-owners, who spent a lot of time chatting and having their meals with us which we enjoyed. A place we would recommend to all. We hope to come again too.

My partner and I stayed in their Suite for two nights and it was the by far the best room we have had in our stay in Sri Lanka. Huge, with its own terraces, rooftop gardens and private eating area all overlooking the pool, beach and across the bay. Excellent food, great staff and lovely peaceful beach for swimming and walking. Assela (massage man) is incredible. Highly recommend a session with him. Hugely relaxing and a great de-tox - we could have happily stayed a week!

Very happy and relieved to have stayed here after some big disappointments with some of the hotels in Sri Lanka. Great staff, food, service and all round hospitality which is not always the case in some hotels. Best of all was how this hotel is laid out which means that all guests get their own privacy. The hotel was only half full when we visited but we felt like we had the place to ourselves. The villas are nice and spacious for two with their own patio / gardens. Nice gardens and walkways then lead you to the front restaurant / beach / pool area. Beach is wonderful - the kids could swim and there are no waves / rocks / undercurrents that you find in so many places along the coast. Kids happy. Burgers, pasta and big bacon and egg breakfasts made their days while we kept to the Sri Lankan fish and curries - delicious.

After an adventurous tour of Sri Lanka, we found this hotel through their Instagram account. We were looking for a private stay on the beach where we could spend some quiet time with the family. We stayed in various hotels around the island with equally various experiences. Here at Calamansi Cove, one enters a secluded little paradise, completely apart from the sometimes mad world of Sri Lanka. Separate, single storey villas are tucked into a beautifully groomed garden offering a sense of natural privacy. We took two of their beach facing villas with a fresh water swimming pool directly at hand. The clean, white washed villas each had a small garden in the front that meant we could eat or meet with the family in privacy apart from the beach. The staff are exceptionally well mannered, polite, personable and happy to help. We felt very comfortable letting the children play unsupervised. Sujit, their Lifeguard, kept a constant eye on everything at the pool and beach which was very reassuring. The food was wonderful. Ample portions - with Western dishes and all the Sri Lankan dishes we could want, all served with characteristic charm. Even the afternoon rain showers were handled elegantly! It usually cleared quickly leading to some wonderful beach sunsets. I cannot imagine a better value. There were amenities offered that we didn't even need. It was a wonderful end to our holiday. I recommend everyone experience this gem of hospitality.

We spent 3 nights in this charming place. The atmosphere is really friendly, staff is very careful, and always ready to help. We were in papaya villa, very close from the pool, and beach. Having breakfast in our private garden in a sunny morning was a great experience ! Thanks to the whole team.

Dear Pooja I am sorry the property did not meet your expectations but I do hope your refund at least went some way to curbing your disappointment. It is unusual for us to have this type of commentary and some of these comments are new and surprising to us. We will look into them and see what we can improve. In the meantime, I wish you well and trust the rest of your trip was successful. Best regards Charles

We had a lovely 2 night stay at this boutique hotel. A beautiful location with a private beach. The villa and the suite we stayed in were spacious and well maintained. We had a small issue with there not being a tv in the suite (as we wanted to watch the cricket!) but management were very helpful in rectifying this. We really enjoyed all our meals at the restaurant, everything was delicious. Special mention to our restaurant host Amila who was very attentive and professional.
