I have read all the previous reviews on this place, some of which I disagree with, although there has been some time since the reports were done.
First impressions count, and as we were 4 weary travellers looking for a place to bed down, this was not the only place we looked at.
We were welcomed by smiling staff and they were more than happy to negotiate a reasonable price for our stay.
The rooms were clean and tidy, bathroom facilities likewise. I must admit our air con unit was past its use by date, and we turned this off during the night because of the noise.
We experienced no problems with mosquitos in our room. And one must remember where they are. Mosquitos are heavy in this area.
We all swam in the pool prior to dinner, it was clean and well maintained.
Being european, a diner menu was given to us, which was very limited. But we were experiencing Sri Lanka, so we asked for a local menu. And I must say it was fantastic, plenty of food, tasty, and were waited upon by staff that was focused on pleasing us.
Breakfast was just as good , traditional.
We had a brief but very enjoyable stay and will return again.
