I stayed here with my traveling partner for three nights at the start of our 3 weeks around Sri Lanka. We checked in around 10.30pm and we still got a welcome drink. Check in was smooth and we were shown to our room. We had room 22, I am not sure if it is refurbished room. Initially I thought this place is dated, the room okay but thought the price is great value and it's night time, give it a go. In the morning we saw the place in different eyes. The pool is well looked after, and the resort had direct access to the beach with sun chairs under the coconut trees. We walked along the beach and thought the beach access and sun chairs are better then other places along the beach. The pool bar staff were excellent, the sport staff very welcoming playing badminton and beach cricket with us. Chemit has a great bowling arm!! The buffet breakfast has a decent range and offers an egg station. There are people who walk along the beach trying to sell souvenirs etc they can get pushy. The cataman salesman was good value and we took them up on the offer to go out on the cataman. It is safe and fun. Overall you should like this place if you don't look for faults. The place is a little dated but we had so much fun here. I had 11 pieces of laundry washed - got it back the next day. The room is made up daily and complimentary tea and coffee is available is the room plus daily water. Internet access is available for free in public areas only - no access in the room. Try and get a room pool side or around the inner court yard like we did, the ones facing the street might be noisy. The resort had a wedding whilst we were here and we could here a murmur where we were. Thank you Golden Star, I had a great time.
