From, the moment we arrived we really enjoyed our stay. The entrance staircase was intriguing with the characters spiralling all the way up the stairs , that is then when you are hit with the view looking out to the ocean.
We stayed in one of the deluxe rooms which was nice and spacious, extremely well decorated and clean, the bathroom was enormous with a shower and a bath. The bed was very comfortable and the air conditioning worked well. From the balcony there were views of the rocks and the ocean waves crashing over them added to the ambience.
We were lucky to sample the bbq dinner on the saturday evening, the food was extremely tasty and there was plenty of choice, around 10-12 different stands offering different types of food from mongolian grill, local food, bbq fish etc along with the usual buffet salads breads and desserts, all for a very reasonable price. The breakfast were again very good with plenty of choice . We tried the fine dining option on the last night and were very pleasantly surprised, the chefs special prawn curry was delicious.
The swimming pools were both very nice, the smaller one was nice to relax in but there was also the larger one to have a proper swim in, with views out to the ocean again. The gym although we didn't use it looked well equipped.
We took a stroll onto the beach area in front of the hotel to see the sunset which was a very nice experience.
The staff were all very welcoming, friendly and always very quick to help,
I would definitely recommend this hotel for those staying in the Galle area, we had a car and driver so the location was perfect as it was only a short drive from the fort area.
