Having read the trip advisor reviews i looked forward to my stay with guarded optimism. I can't fathom what people could find to complain about. Unfailingly friendly, clean, and atmospheric. The beach here is wonderful with a gradual shore so that despite the waves it doesn't beat you up. Plenty of room for long walks. The grounds are huge with lots of loungers, comfortable loungers. Pool is nice and was never busy. I didn't see any children around anywhere. The staff who provide towels and loungers on the beach were sometimes difficult to find so i settled for just a towel on the sand. Food was excellent. Breakfast had a double buffet with Indian specialties as well as western choices. You are not experiencing Sri Lanka until you have curry and Hoppers for breakfast! I I only had one dinner which was fine, nice variety of desserts. Pizza at the little restaurant by the pool was awesome. The hotel, as all hotels in the area, is very near the train tracks. I did hear the train but it was not loud and didn't disturb me. There was no loud music or other disturbance to disrupt my sleep. I loved my room and beach view balcony...room 108. Not fat from restaurant and lobby either.
