Having spent two weeks right on the beaches of the south coast we weren't bothered that Shangri Lanka was a little bit inland and were quite happy to relax by the pool all day (if you want to be right on the beach then this isn't the place).
Shangri Lanka has gorgeous rooms, good (free!) wifi, a swimming pool that manages to be spotless and always at the perfect temperature, great staff (ordering pancakes from the pool and having a steaming hot pile of the on the terrace minutes later - that's pretty special).
I really recommend this place. I thought it was great. The wine wasn't outrageously priced either.
Don't bother going out for dinner though - their food is much better that the local restaurant.
