Stayed one night (May 24, 2014). Tried to make a reservation directly with the hotel desk, but interestingly was told by the hotel that I could get better rates by using Bookings.com. Indeed they were right...I cannot figure out why the hotel would not give their best rate to those who call directly.
Good: Great food--buffet had wonderful variety and great service by wait staff. Lobby is nice. Good location that is easily accesible via the new Southern Highway. Excellent welcome by front desk including a cold towel and welcome soft drink. We were personally escorted to our rooms by a manager. We were upgraded to deluxe rooms. Excellent decor. Bathrooms are well appointed and spacious.
Needs improvement: room 114 smelled musty. Room 116 was fine. Guests can smoke I the rooms...May be a problem for some. Room fixtures can use some replacing/ refurbishing. E.g. The mirror in room116 shows signs of corrosion from the salt air. Some light fixtures were not working. The tiles in the pool are a funky shade of green and in some areas,brown. At first glance the pool looks like it had algae and sewage in it due to the color of the tiles. The water is clear and clean..just looks dirty. I think the conventional light blue tile work would have rendered the more inviting.
Pool area and landscaping are nice. The beach is nice for the area. However, west coast beaches are not as nice as those on the east coast. The beach has its share of vendors, but there is security and the property is fenced in. We did not go during the best time of year (monsoon season). The seas are rough and dangerous. However, it was nice to stand ankle deep in the warm waters of the Indian Ocean.
Overall, it was a nice getaway from the hustle and bustle of Colombo.
