Title says it all. Lots of rooms but very few pool lounges and people hogged not one but two for themselves. Pool was filthy with bits of algae floating in it. Very cloudy water requiring a decent dose of chlorine. We booked this for the pool as we had a couple of nights to kill before flying out late at night. We paid for 2 nites with a deluxe room for a 27 hour stay. They couldn't give us a deluxe room on our first night but after arguing with 3 different staff members they gave us $15 USD but tried to dumb this down to $10. The standard and deluxe rooms were ordinary and overpriced compared with other places we stayed at in Sri Lanka. The beach itself was okay and there are some good restaurants nearby. I would not eat the breakfast here as the flies were landing all over the buffet. I would not go back to this property even if it was free. I think the pictures I took are enough to suggest that this property is pretty awful.
