We stayed one night (our last in Sri Lanka) and it was such a nice experience. Right from the time when we checked in, the service was outstanding. The room was very comfortable and the view of the sea was great. The facilities at the hotel was also top notch.
1. Great location right by the sea & outstanding service. The staff was very helpful. Especially the guy near the pool. I went for a swim and he was very attentive in providing the towel, drinks, waiting for me to finish my swimming session and guided me to the sauna, jacuzzi area. The travel desk person was also very helpful in recommending local speciality restaurants near the hotel. Also I had left the handphone in the cab at the airport and the hotel staff were prompt in sending the car back to deliver the hp.
2. Comfortable Room & great facilities
1. Found the concept of charging for wifi appalling. Further even when we paid for it, the quality surprisingly was poor. Very Slow.
All in, a great experience in a 5 star hotel.
Tip : Please do go to the beach opposite the hotel in the evening when there are stalls selling local specialities. The food is truly delicious and is not to be missed.
