I have mixed reviews for this hotel.
We travelled around Sri Lanka for two weeks seeing / staying in many hotels and this was the last before flying home. On arrival all looks nice and impressive. The entrance lobby is muralled with amazing patterns. The staff are generally good accommodating where and when they can.
We read several reviews about the rooms here before arrival and after visiting I can see what others mean, being on the beach side of the island means everything is always hotel and sticky and corroded. We had to ask for a different room twice as the rooms we were given were not up to scratch or dirty. The hotel staff accommodated without question which was very pleasing. They even gave us a bottle of champagne / chocolate cake on account of it being our anniversary which
Other than that - everything else is pretty good. The grounds are pretty big so plenty to go and see form the beach, pool, water sports, gym, spa, shops, etc. etc. We were on a room & breakfast basis so it gave us a chance to go out and see the area. There is a nice restaurant across the bridge called Kulmiths which does decent food and has an amazing view of the sea and hotel.
Wifi is not the best, but thats not really a bad thing - we used as a break to get off our phones.
The food was really good here, the buffet breakfast & dinner more than accommodates. But on our last two nights we realised that there is another restaurant underneath, which is more a la carte and fancy. This restaurant for me was a jewel and def is underrated / undersold. Well worth the extra money. Great surrounding, Excellent service, master chef quality food. On the whole a great stay / end to the vacation.
