Great spot to relax before you set of on your tour of the Cultural Triangle, we spent a night here at the start and end of our week long tour and it was very relaxing. Nice swimming pool, good size bedrooms with a nice big bath and shower. Cocktails in the beach bar watching the sun set before dinner in The Black Coral restaurant what more could you ask for! If you like seafood then this restaurant is a must, their Signature main dish was so good we had it twice! Just a shame they didn't have any lobster when we were there. Friendly staff and nice setting, good spot for relaxing. Very handy for the airport only 20 minute drive.

Room Tip: Deluxe rooms with terrace open out to swimming pool which is very handy

We really enjoyed our stay in this hotel. Our room was total luxury- a huge bath and a separate shower the size of a small room were in the stylish bathroom. The bed was large, fluffy and very comfortable. Flat screen tv and tea and coffee making facilities with a coffee filter pot also nice touches. Outside our room was small balcony overlooking the outdoor pool, palms and beach beyond. Beautiful views, very easy to stroll to the outdoor terrace for a cocktail and sun loungers under the palms for a bit of shade. Wouldn't hesitate to stay again

It's the best and most convenient place to stay if you have to catch an early flight from Colombo International airport. At this resort, you can watch a memorable Sri Lankan sunset, enjoy very good seafood and complete all your shopping need before flying off! Room is typical of a chained hotel with nothing spectacular. However, it provides you with a very relaxing atmosphere...and good night sleep. There are several nearby local restaurants serving very good and affordable sea food and drinks! From this resort, it's a 20 minute ride to the airport so you can definitely avoid the hectic Colombo traffic jam and have a restful stay before your flight.

One of our best holidays to date. Beautiful, clean hotel with super friendly staff. Incredible views and direct access on to a wide, clean, golden beach from the pool side. Great food (Huge selection and very high quality).

Incredible bathroom with glass windows allowing you to relax in a bubbly tub whilst looking out to the sunset. Good room service with wide selection of food and availability to bring up any unfinished bottles of wine from any meals you have where you ask for it to be saved (my only negative on this was that the pizza was not worth the money, everything else was great though).

The beach/pool bars are lovely and serve great food too. You can even pay (I think they said it would cost around c.$100) to have a private, and very romantic, candlelit BBQ set up on the beach for you.

Things to note (although didn't bother us at all):
- at certain times of year/weather dependent you won't be able to swim in the sea as the waves are too powerful (but as aforementioned there are 2 lovely pools, so this shouldn't hinder your holiday at all)
- there are a lot of locals trying to sell things along the beach front who will try to speak to you and haggle. Again this didn't bother us in the slightest - they were all very friendly (of course a bit dogged and forceful, but then you just have to remember they're just trying to make a living) and we were happy to chat to them and buy a few little souvenirs come the end of the week

What an amazing place, I was worried because of the comments on trip adviser but I needn't have bothered it was all and more. The welcome you get, the rooms are large and bathrooms well what can I say I laid down in the massive bath with head rest and watched the sun go down. We were invited to a cocktail and canapes party where we met the manager and assistant manager.
The restaurant is just off the beach and great buffets (I have dietary requirements but that wasn't a problem for them) The room boys every night put towel animals and petals on your bed. Then it was my birthday well the room boy put an extra special towel heart with a message and flowers in the room. At night we had a table on the beach - which was candle lit and our own personal waitress, the assistant manager came to wish me Happy Birthday as well, they then brought a cake with candles on and sang Happy Birthday. I was totally spoilt it was the perfect end to a perfect holiday. A great hotel with fantastic staff. Thank you

Room Tip: Ask for a high floor room better views
