The Galle Face Hotel is a great hotel to relax for a few days. The ocean frontage location is excellent. Enjoyed the cool sea breeze when strolling along the Galle Face Green in the evenings. It has quite a large swimming pool for doing laps or just relaxing around on the deck chairs. The staff were generally courteous & helpful & the food was very good. Also a great place to sip a cocktail & indulge in some people watching.....lots of interesting looking guests. Perhaps the only gripe would be having to pay for a second rate wifi connection. The charges are exorbitant for what you get.
